Apparently, Netflix is teaming up with Nintendo to develop a live-action Legend of Zelda series, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The project is, irrationally—and quite stupidly—likened to Game of Thrones, but “for a family audience.”
I’m sure this will thrill gamers everywhere, who only feel their preferred pastime is validated once adapted into something more established like film or television, but then turn on it like Judas at the first trailer because their subjective experiences aren’t thrown out of whack by a singular interpretation.
This is not a thing you want, people. You think you do, but you don’t. It’s OK for games to just be games and exist in that special realm of interactive medium that makes them so special.
