You've Got Bugs!

Collecting otherwise useless trinkets for others, removing a creepy curse, reuniting star-crossed lovers. . . It’s all in a day’s work for our green-clad hero. And yet, not at all essential.

Our friends over at Wii Potato have written an article on Zelda‘s top five sidequests, the things that we would probably never take time out of our real daily lives to do (“You want me to take what to whom? I’m busy trying to save the world, missy!”) and things we haven’t done since childhood (I haven’t gone bug collecting since I was eleven). Yet somehow in the context of these games, these mindless duties feel fun. We want to do them. Or maybe it is just the sense of accomplishment upon completing each of these tasks.

Whatever it is, we are presented with many in each game to choose from, and our friends at Wii Potato have chosen their top five overall. Have a look at their article and see if your favorites rank there as well.

    Sidequests aren't at all bad to have. Actually, they allow us a chance to gain new items and Pieces of Heart and such. It would be cool if they put a kind of World of Warcraft theme into the future games: find a person who needs you to deliver an item to, struggle to find the person you need to deliver it to, and receive the dough. Or just stick to the main flow. Whatev, it words either way for me! :-6

    by the way Thareous33 why did you put two comments of same stuff on there?

      Oops…I didn't realize I did that, Valdek. Thank you for pointing that out. I meant to put: find the person who who needs you to deliver an item, struggle to find the person you need to deliver it to, and receive the dough (that is from the person who needs the item). Ah, delicious correction! :-9

    I just do those quests because I get bottles and bigger wallets and stuff. I don't think I've ever gotten all the poes in TP. I got him to move once, but I've never completely lifted the curse.
