Character Analysis:Link

Hey my favorite I-net People!

 The importance of a rememberable protagonist in a game franchise is of utmost importance. Hero´s that function in the virtual worlds, prove successful allowing the producers and game designers to create a sequel. There are countless examples of this, be it Mario, Link, the Master Chief or Guybrush Threepwood… The online Game design magazine Gamesutra recently published an article on Link, and why he is such a successful protagonist.

Link's continual cluelessness is understated, even when used to comedic effect. And it's not that naivete is necessarily a trait of his. In fact, he has few discernible qualities except the persistence and bravery he gains from being controlled by a player who persists. An unfazed and wide-eyed openness is simply the character's default expression.

hope you enjoy the read!


  1. Link's lack of personality is actually the reason I don't like him that much. If I am to be told a story I want believable characters. But that's a matter of preference I guess. Good post!

  2. so the only good video game characters are the mute ones?

  4. thanks for the link, checking it out. :)
