Rewriting Twilight Princess: The Ruins of Hyrule Castle Town

Zelda Informer: "At the halfway mark of Twilight Princess, after Zelda saves Midna, our heroes teleport outside of the castle in time to watch a massive barrier form around the castle. Upon returning to the town later, they find the place...absolutely the same as ever before. The huge barrier, plainly visible, isn't even mentioned except by a random Goron; the rest of the townsfolk, either blind or stupid, continue on with their lives completely unchanged.

...

So the problem with Hyrule Castle's barrier is twofold: first, the citizens don't react to it; second, Ganondorf does nothing while inside it. Even if he couldn't leave the castle for some reason, he still had monsters inside the barrier that could have been sent out. Fixing the former issue would have hardly any effect on the storyline, but the latter...that one has some major implications that simply cannot be ignored.

Because quite frankly, the only believable action for Ganondorf to take is to attack those citizens.

Picture it: Link and Midna warp out of the castle and see the barrier appear, only this time the townsfolk take note of it too – and not just because of the barrier, but because of the hordes of monsters rushing out of it." (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii, Wii U)

Let me get his straight...so now, we're allowing fanfiction concepts to be labeled as articles?

For peeks sake, it's a video game about an Elf Boy who turns into a wolf, who gets ridden by a cat-demon from another dimension, who is really a beautiful princess under a spell, and the two must collect a pieces of a stone mask so they can defeat an interdimensional throne usurper who has been granted powers by an ancient evil force that's really a guy with a red beard who can turn into a giant pigotaur and wields a blade made of frikk'n light that he was stabbed with thousands of years ago and then he thrown into another dimension. And the article chooses to focus on why the town folks don't react to a barrier or why Ganon doesn't directly attack the town?!

Hey article writer, you're missing the trees because there's a forest in the way.
