Insanity, Defined

There’s a popular quote, frequently attributed to Very Smart People (Albert Einstein is a favorite), that goes something like this:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”


I have owned six games from Nintendo’s “Legend of Zelda” series, and I’ve never finished a single one. To be quite honest, I’ve rarely made it past an hour with any of the games I’ve tried. And, Lord, I’ve tried.


People will not shut up about the Switch entry in the series, and I realized today that I could stack Amazon credits with some discount offers and get it shipped to my door for a little under 16 bucks. Yay for Cyber Monday.

So, I’ll give it a try at least. It sounds like it’s basically a combination of an Ubisoft-style map with towers to climb and Elder Scrolls-style narrative freedom, with just a touch of Just Cause 2’s Magical Parachutes ability, so it should be “here are some things you like, now with a Zelda skin” and maybe that will be the secret formula to get me through it.

Or at least through the tutorial.
