Why Zelda’s End Credits Are Important

Zelda Informer: "It’s all done and dusted. Ganondorf is beaten, turned to stone, blown to smithereens. Or one of his accomplices is. Through ice and fire, and sand, and back, Link defeats hordes of beasts, overcomes a multitude of puzzles, and comes to understand himself and the title bestowed upon him.

We all know that it’s never really the end; Link and Ganondorf will return with renewed vigour, coupled with a new art style carefully crafted by Nintendo’s finest designers. But it’s important for the player to feel that sense of accomplishment having walked the path laid out before them. What better way to cement our connection to Link, and somewhat self-inflated sense of heroism, by settling down to see the story wrap up nicely."

The end credits of a link to the past still give me chills and I believe started this trend in the zelda series. It really is nice to see how the people and places you helped have changed after you beat gannon. It's the reward.

For me, it was the end credits of Link's Awakening that really gave me the chills.
I mean, yeah, sure, there wasn't much of a wrap-up[unless you got to see the secret scene from collecting all the Hearts!], but the music...
Oh lord, the MUSIC...
In fact, here: The Music.

Original version:

It also helped that the Wind Fish appeared in the sky, hinting that their might be a real, non-dream version of Koholint out there somewhere...
And Marin was the only Zelda heroine so far that came THAT! FREAKING! CLOSE! to finally confessing love to Link!
It still irks me to this day that she was interrupted...

That ending made me feel sad. And that's unusual for a zelda game. Everything that seemed real to him was only an illusion by the wind fish trapped by the nightmares that kept it there.
