ONM Remembered – #19

“WINNER OF 4 BAFTA AWARDS”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 89 (February 2000)

A bit of horn tooting from ol’ Ninty here, that also tickles one of my pet peeves: If you can’t sell a game on its own merits, you can sell it on how many film awards it’s won!

Mind you, I do love how Ganondorf is referred to as GANONDORF THE EVIL THIEF KING. I personally believe every character in all of fiction should have a title instead of a surname.
Starring LINK – THE MUTE BISHOUNEN HERO.
Starring NAVI – THE ATTEMPT AT TYING SEVERAL GAMEPLAY FEATURES INTO A SHALLOW CHARACTER.
Starring THE RUNNING MAN – THE CHEATING SON OF A BITCH.
Starring THE SHARK – THAT GODDAMNED TERRIFYING TEXTURE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE HYLIA LAB.
Starring RAGEY – THE INCOMPETENT BLOG MAN WHO STRETCHES OUT JOKES FOR TOO LONG.

starring YOU – THE INCREASINGLY PISSED OFF READER.
