@gamtos I don't know if you are just trolling
Why do people find it so hard to believe I have genuine strong opinions on this? Like, the tone might not be all that serious but I'm baffled otherwise.
or trying to be funny
I don't "try", I am gamtos.
but first of all Hyrule isn't the western world with the same ethics and shit. In their world Link is probably considered an adult, and why wouldn't the king rely on him since he is the hero of winds?
Alright, let's disregard the
(sorry I just really thought the words "ethics and shit" were really funny, like I'm imagining my philosophy professor having a fit right now)
Daphnes Nohanssen Hyrule had a moment of literal omnipotence. The most easily identifiable root problem of his entire country is standing two feet away from him. Like, any problem Hyrule had that you can think of, it's Ganon, and if it's not Ganon, it's still kinda Ganon.
Ganon who fought the Hero of Time and came back anyways Ganon.
Ganon whose subsequent havoc caused apocalyptic divine intervention Ganon.
Ganon who also survived that Ganon.
Link is really reliable but just the hero, some light arrows and a sword are, historically speaking, not a cure, just a bandaid. Heck, the Hero of Time could only weaken Ganon; it was the sages and Zelda that managed to seal him away.
So if Daphnes knew anything about the history of the Hero of Time, relying on Link to fix the issue entirely would be very much repeating old mistakes.
And since he made that wish he knew that Link (and Zelda) would prevail anyway so what is the problem?
Well, he knew they'd have "hope" for a brighter future. I know this is nitpicking but really, two things here:
- This is extremely vague. Like, if I were an evil genie, this wish would get granted in the least helpful way possible.
- Tetra proceeds to get kidnapped in the next game and Link has to risk his life again to save her.
Harm which was in my opinion entirely unnecessary.
Why are you so obsessed with taking back the old Hyrule? It's not like there is overpopulation going on above anyway.
Basically put, old Hyrule seemed pretty neat, while the Great Sea sucks to the point Tetra wants to go off to find a new Hyrule, and Link is convinced enough to come along.
but as long as we're not being told about those reasons, obviously the ending feels dumb.
Especially if I was scared about Ganondorf being so close, my blurted wish would be more along the lines of "OhGodsoftheTriforce, HearmypraywhateverKILL GANONDORF!!!".
