Hey everyone, One of the things I find interesting about the plot of Ocarina of Time was that by pulling out the Master Sword, Link unknowingly granted Ganondorf access to the Triforce. This seemed to be exactly what Ganondorf wanted, so Link was kind of responsible for the devastation done to Hyrule. This gives players some extra motivation to solve the problem they caused. But this leads to an even bigger question about what might have happened if Link, the Hero of Time didn't exist. From what was said above, one would think that Hyrule would be better off without him. No one would be able to pull out the Master Sword and let Ganondorf claim the Triforce. But because Ganondorf had at least part of the Triforce, he was able to terrorize Hyrule for generations more in each of the timelines. Of course, I could be forgetting about something that the Hero of Time was needed for in the first place. Let me know what you think.
