Yeah I remember the first time I bumped into a redead in OOT which was the game that introduced me to the series. To full appreciate this you need to know the backround to this. At the time I was 10-12 years old, not very bright and easily scared. I'm playing this game in the dark at night. I had just recently had my first run in with stal-children which had scared me pretty bad. Now I'm under a grave in this place with creepy sounds all over the place and I walk into this new room with green liquid all over and these strange brown people standing in various places. I run towards one of them, confident in my abilities to take it down, and all the sudden it screams... ... ... ... I didn't pick that game up for awhile after that.
Controller chucking frustrating to me is good... as long as it isn't stupid hard. There were a lot of stupid hard/annoying things in TP. I like hard things that when I beat, I feel a sense of accomplishment. I've always wanteed to play ALttP but havven't been able to get it. And yes you do have a pretty sweet avatar. I like Tails he's pretty cool, although I don't play Sonic that much since I tend to get headaches for some reason or another.
