In celebration of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s release we’ll be sharing a few Zelda stories over the next two weeks from ourselves here at AWttP and guest contributors. Today’s story comes from a friend of ours here at AWttP – Brett S, as he shares with us how even in the darkest times games can give you the strength you need to get through.
Remember that time that Zelda: Ocarina of Time saved your life? I do. About 17 years ago I thought I had everything figured out. I had a girlfriend, casually attended college, was in an amazing indie rock band, and had a killer job working at the best thrift store in the world with a bunch of my friends. It was my birthday, and I had just saved enough money to buy a Nintendo 64 and Zelda.
