I am doing a research paper for english and am writing it on The Legend of Zelda and why the classic damsel in distress story trope is so popular.
If you could please comment below if any of the following factors would have influenced the way you viewed the game or how much you would have liked it the very first time you discovered and played the legend of zelda.
Link was a Female
Zelda was a Male
Zelda and Link Swapped Genders
Zelda and link were the same Gender
Link was Old
Zelda was Old
Zelda and Link were both Old
Zelda was Ugly
Link was Ugly
Zelda and Link were both ugly
The villain was a child
The villain was clearly a female
If not please say no these would not have affected the way i viewed the game or how much i liked it when i first played it.
