Really lots of stuff I can't relate to Link, His choices, Clothes, Physical attributes.. So him being gay wouldn't really change much for me. Zelda doesn't seem like a series were you are supposed to feel a connection with the character you are playing, Otherwise we'd have more customization for Link's looks and his choices during the game?If the gameplay etc. were good enough to make up for the awkwardness of playing as a character that I couldn't relate to then I might play it. Otherwise I'd just skip that game. One game I don't like isn't enough to ruin the series. Only if it becomes a trend.
Wait, what?Cfrock said:like Rowling did with Dumbledore
Yeah, she put absolutely no hint of it whatsoever in any of the books and after the last one came out (no pun intended) she turned around and told everyone that Dumbledore was gay. It served absolutely no purpose to the story and, if anything, probably made some people like the character less (not so much because he was gay but for knowing him so little that this came as a surprise).Wait, what?
Dumbledore is gay?
Link's motivation for saving Zelda in almost every game has nothing to do with a possible romance. Nothing. Us fans love to reason that Link saves Zelda because he has some sort of sexual drive or whatever, but really he's saving her because the main villain is a threat to the world. Link is courageous, not selfish. So, Link would largely have the same impetus for saving Zelda, Hyrule and even the world regardless of his gender or sexuality. :/. I mean, sure, he could do it, but he probably wouldn't have the same motivation
