ZU writes: It is a noticed fact that in the Zelda games Link never talks. Even when people talk to him, he doesn’t reply. He just looks at them with his glassy eyes and that somehow seems to convey the right message. Not only with the games’ NPCs either. Link seems to have a fairly diverse personality that is consecrated by his stature, facial expressions and also his grunts when he swings his sword. Therefore, Link conveys his message to the player as well as other characters in the storyline.
The point that I want to make is even though Link’s reserved approach (i.e. choosing not to speak) receives endless mocking and complaints, would the Zelda series be the same if he did unexpectedly choose to jump into conversation? Hopefully we’ll have that clear by the end of this article.
