Why can't Nintendo figure out good female representation for the life of theirs?

The literal narration:
>In a world without Link, Hyrule's fate is now in Zelda's hands
Why does the man first have to be out of the picture for Zelda to take the reins?
Why does the game LITERALLY start with her as a damsel in distress and being saved by Link when we long moved on from that trope and even the last Zelda games tried to be less lazy?
Why can't she use a sword or other (FUN) means of brute force to defend herself ON TOP of her magic abilities? Just because it wouldn't be ladylike? Appears so. Link has both melee combat AND very similar magic tricks in TotK

To the people who will say, "Ugh, you want every game to play the same? It's good to have a little nuance, sweetie. :)": So as soon as Zelda is the protagonist, after 30 years, it's time for nuance and for getting rid of melee combat? Not to mention that she could simply have both: just design it so that weapons (not Zelda) are weak like how it's literally the case in early BotW and TotK

      >No one wants to play as Zelda
      everyone wants to play as zelda, especially if she can transform into sheik and it's a more serious game, maybe an ocarina gaiden

      all of this is a wasted opportunity

      I think they realized most people just want to turn their brain off and conzoom at the end of the day. You can see the pendulum swinging back with coomer shit too

      Once again Ocarinagays out themselves as brainless NPC's who only like Ocarina of time and hate everything else. A game where you can summon monsters and use them like items to help you get around is 10x cooler than "what if I could play as a shitty version of Impa?"

          i have no idea why you think a game featuring sheik would have to confine itself exclusively to what sheik was shown doing in oot. and characters do a million things off screen in oot anyways, like all the sages canonically fighting by your side against the bosses or fights we don't even see

                let me try and spell it out for you. oot was groundbreaking at the time. the musket was groundbreaking at the time. both have aged poorly and been surpassed by later iterations and refinements. while they may have been "good at the time" they have aged poorly. while the musket can still kill a person, it has objective flaws and drawbacks by modern standards (accuracy, load time, etc). while oot is still playable and nobody is saying that you like/enjoy it, it has MASSIVE flaws (ugly, clunky, shitty menus, terrible combat, empty places, non-puzzles, etc) made all the more obvious by modern refinements and standards. while they may have been groundbreaking at the time, it is exceedingly obvious how primitive they are in execution.

          Would they be excited for the game if the main character WAS link but everything else was the same? Or are they literally only excited because there is a female protagonist, in which case feminism is literally just "FEMALE GOOD MALE BAD!"

            the mechanics dont really make sense for link. in the first place why would he be limited to just the staff? if it's like oracle of seasons though I dont see the problem, but that would be kind of weird, because oracle of ages and oracle of seasons both exist, so having another wisdom game staring link feels unbalanced.

      The literal narration:
      >In a world without Link, Hyrule's fate is now in Zelda's hands
      Why does the man first have to be out of the picture for Zelda to take the reins?
      Why does the game LITERALLY start with her as a damsel in distress and being saved by Link when we long moved on from that trope and even the last Zelda games tried to be less lazy?
      Why can't she use a sword or other (FUN) means of brute force to defend herself ON TOP of her magic abilities? Just because it wouldn't be ladylike? Appears so. Link has both melee combat AND very similar magic tricks in TotK

      To the people who will say, "Ugh, you want every game to play the same? It's good to have a little nuance, sweetie. :)": So as soon as Zelda is the protagonist, after 30 years, it's time for nuance and for getting rid of melee combat? Not to mention that she could simply have both: just design it so that weapons (not Zelda) are weak like how it's literally the case in early BotW and TotK

      kek.
      anyone else remember when tumblr was clamoring for female Link? then Hyrule Warriors gave them Linkle and most of them threw a shitfit.

    Let me tell you the secret to Nintendo's thought process of game development. Because it isn't.
    >We are making a Zelda game, but Zelda is the protag, what should be the gimmick?
    It's instead
    >We should make a game that doesn't involve much combat, what series should we go with? Zelda? Ok, so Link won't be using his sword for this. Let's start making up a story draft and item to base the gameplay around. A wand that recreates objects.
    >Hmmm, this seems kind of silly to put Link into, wait a moment, people have been bothering us for a game staring Zelda, THIS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR IT
    You see "sweetie", if you hadn't been pushing them to make Zelda as a protag for a game, they wouldn't have considered her. It might have even been some other franchise entirely or maybe even something original. This design process has been part of Nintendo's core philosophy for a while and is how the idea for a 3 party RPG game got changed into Zelda 2, which is why Link got the Fairy spell and the Wizard playable character became an NPC.

      >We want a 2d Zelda game focused completely on manipulating objects, building on what we did on Breath of the Wild's initial prototype, but people will complain if Link doesn't have his basic tools. So, what do we do?! I know, let's go with Zelda! Perfect excuse to eliminate the usual weapons and focus everything on the gimmick!

    I figured I must've just been white knighty so I immediately dropped the criticism after hearing the opinions of real women since it's, you know, their fight to fight and not mine (or yours OP).

The end result is that the games are boring and dull and there's not any meat to them, and it's suprising to me that we're still doing this and that these titles will sell for some reason.

    I hate that I fell down the wokeness rabbit hole. If this was released back then I would be super excited and see others online as hyped as I am. Now that it’s modern day however the feeling is bittersweet cause you have discussions like this where we have to ask “is this woke” and if the answer is yes that means the game is apparently bad.

    I hate the current state of this world, I’m tired of Twitter being a political cesspool now, tired of Sony pandering to people who will never touch their games. I just miss the days when we didn’t have to worry about dumb shit tainting our media.

      nobody "has to" do that. people in the real world dont do that. Ganker isnt real. twitter isnt real. yes, it is a shame that corpos think its real and pander to bullshit, but for your own sanity, never forget that its not a real snapshot of real people. it is incredibly contrived and fabricated "controversy", and a lot of times by people that arent even involved. kind of like how people will complain that a poncho and sombrero is "cultural appropriation", but if you wear that and walk up to mexican people they will say "hey, looking GOOD, man!" because the outrage is fake and gay.

      Because Nintendo is the cornerstone of gaming and trannies perceive them as the gateway to their most important asset, children
      So the objective is to push people away from Nintendo so they're put in a position where they have to be woke hence the push to force this Zelda game into being woke.

        there will probably be specific objects that you need to find in order to access certain areas. hopefully they will have actual, interesting uses, and not simply be "block, but size", or a one-time importance equivalent to a key. probably object limit increases too (you cant reach this cliff until you can place FIVE objects! sort of thing).

    Correct. Because she's a fricking princess. Nobody is saying girls can't be warriors or fighters, but Zelda has been raised all her life as a pampered medieval princess. How the frick would she know how to use a sword? Feminism doesn't mean all women have to be tough bulldykes, it means that girls can be a princess or a warrior and either one is okay. Zelda is a princess.

      When I first saw the trailer I was hoping for a different gameplay, since she uses the triforce of Wisdom.

      Anyone else did this as a kid back when you only had one game and had to find ways to entertain yourself?

        i collected pine cones for candy. the neighbor kids would have us fill a bucket and get a candy bar, but then they'd throw the pinecones at us whenever we walked by.

      That he said it was the first time he wants to play a Zelda game in a long time?
      And that it was the best thing in the direct?

      We can't have him use a sword, or solve puzzles, it would be like playing Link or Zelda.

    >In a world without Link, Hyrule's fate is now in Zelda's hands

    That line is kind of funny to me. Isn´t the whole point of Zelda games that Link is the only one who can defeat Ganon and save Hyrule, otherwise the whole world is fricked?
    Example, the backstory of Wind Waker, there was no longer a link to stop Ganon once he returned after the end of OoT and the whole world went to shit and it was so bad that the gods had to flood the entire world to contain him, and even then he still survived. And I´m pretty sure there was a princess Zelda at the time, and even she couldn´t do jackshit.

      Yeah but clearly the goal will be to get Link back so it won't come down to another flooding.

      Ganon was defeated in the intro, dude. This dimensional shit could be something else entirely. I mean, you probably WILL see Ganon again, but that's not the only threat Hyrule ever faced.

    because link and zelda are two different characters, having them both use a sword is moronic

    is this why there's so many redditor threads about this game?

    it's pretty funny isn't it. I kinda like it. Without oblivious people like the guys at nintendo, games like this wouldn't get made

    What's more problematic is that the writing is complete ass in zelda for a decade now. If they need to fix anything it's that, they have no idea how to write a zelda game anymore
