If I could have any wish come true, it would be to have all of my memories of playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess erased. Why? Because the first time I played the game it was magic.
I’ll never forget the first time I met the character Midna in the game. Her theme was dark and eerie, and the funny little noises she made were like nothing I had ever heard before (incidentally, they are the closest thing to voice-acting in Zelda. I would spend the entire game (until the end, that is) wondering who this little imp truly was and what her motives were.
I even cried a little during my first play-through of Twilight Princess. I don’t want to spoil anything, but one of the major characters nearly dies, then is saved by another major character, at a great price.
There are countless other great moments in Twilight Princess, and the finale is nothing short of stunning. But will I ever play it again with that fresh perspective? No, and I truly wish that I could. I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next legendary adventure to come along.
