GAMELOG ASSIGNMNENT #2
GAMELOG ENTRY #1
I played Zelda's Ocarina of Time which is a one player game. It is the story of a young elf boy by the name of Link. He is given the task to save the people who live in Kokiri village and Princess Zelda. He must past certain levels which consist of passing tasks to collect certain items to rescue Princess Zelda.
I was initially very excited when playing Zelda since it is one of my personal favorites. After getting out of Zora's Domain, I realized there were so many different things to complete. I had so many options while just getting out of that region. I collected money, grabbed an extra heart container, and on the way to the entrance of the gate, I destroyed octopus-looking creatures. It was a bit overwhelming because I was glad I had the options to do all that but at the same time I had forgotten what tasks I had to complete and what songs I already had on the Ocarina.
I always get nervous when I encounter "villains" and I was scared to encounter Ganondorf, the main villain. The colors and sounds they use are very intimidating and their technique in creating the villain definitely triggered that sense of intimidation. There is a constant update on what should be done by the fairy that accompanies Link, Navi. The game is definitely very entertaining because there are many other things that can be accomplished than just the basic tasks to "finish" the game. The game allows the player to interact with the environment.
