It's actually only a newer concept that crying is not masculine; in the old days crying was considered manly because it indicated empathy and caring about others was praised. Greek heroes for example were crybabies. So yeah, it would be interesting to see Link cry sometime. We'd need an exceptionally emotional and/or dark Zelda plot though, so I'd guess it's a long way off if it ever happens at all.(Plus I loved how they gave Link some emotion in that scene. One of these days, Link's gonna have to cry sometime. Big boys have to cry too.)
So? Many people cry at stories that they feel emotional about, and in particular different people have different thresholds for when they'll cry. Some people rarely ever cry, like myself. Others cry at almost anything. I don't see how it being a video game could possibly change that.It was an emotional scene, but crying? Like legit crying? It's a video game lol.
