RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Legend of Zelda

LOZ

I grew up Ocarina of Time. I also have ALTTP (Gameboy), Phantom Hourglass, and Majora's Mask. I don't have much, but it is a awesome series.

Re: Legend of Zelda

I've never played Zelda at all before. I remember saying this to the group of people I hung out with during 7th period. They looked at me like I was a Martian. Laugh I feel like I missed out on a piece of childhood because of it.

Re: Legend of Zelda

My first Zelda was when I was 10 and bought my first video game thingie, a Gamecube. Took me a year to save up enough to buy one.

I rented Wind Waker with the bonus disc, OOT. I never got past Dragoon Roost Island in WW and never got past the Fire Temple in OOT. But I just loved playing them.

Then one day I rented the games again and found that their was no OOT. I was super pissed, but realised that it was a limited offer. So I bought WW and finished a week later to relieve my sadness.

It took me 3 years until I got OOT again (in between those 3 years I bought a PS2 and a shitload of games for it). Some asian kid at my school had a N64 and a cartridge of it. I bought it off him for 20 dollars.

The Zelda franchise was a part of my childhood and always will be. I still feel (and look) like Link, which is ironic because the child Link was 10 in OOT and WW.

P.S. I also have Twilight Princess which is awesome as well.

Re: Legend of Zelda

Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask, and Twilight Princess were all great.

Wind Waker sucked... too much sailing.

Faces of Evil and Wand of Gamelon were not real zelda games so STFU about those.

Re: Legend of Zelda

WW and PH sucked because of their graphics. Cel-shaded Zelda is not cool.

There's lots more to hate about Wind Waker then just the graphics.

Re: Legend of Zelda

WW sucked major balls, so did PH, but the main thing was the graphics. Such, bad, graphics... Even for cel-shade!

WW is terrible. Also the pig-lazer statues used to scare me soooo much. >.>

I've never beaten the game because of how boring it becomes.

And that there was only 4 dungeons. And the sailing. And the triforce pieces quest. And tingle.

Re: Legend of Zelda

OoT is hands down the best one out there. Majora's Mask comes in a close second.

Personaly I loved Wind Waker. It was a vast complex world with lots to see and do. The story was also pretty good. As for the graphics I thought it was new and inventive, given played it on a plasma screen so mabey it was a little kinder to me but I still liked it.

Twiglight Princess was OK at best in my book, WAY to short though. Beat it in less than a day. Trying to hard to ride of the curtails of OoT. Honestly though, I hope they redo OoT with these graphics at some point.

Oracle of Ages/Seasons was epic, as was Link's Awakening. Even though I never beat Link to the Past it was still and epic game.

Four Swords was good if you had three other people to play it with you.

Whilst some work diligently there are those who ask why. I am one of them

Re: Legend of Zelda

If they remade OoT with TP graphics Nintendo would be rolling in a lot more cash then they already have. And then they'd be able to make better games! Well, no, they wouldn't. Nintendo is a fucking traitor.

That would suck, it would be unoriginal and a cheap way to make cash..... wait, didn't they already do that by making Wii Sports which was a complete rip off of Eye Toy?

Re: Legend of Zelda

Wii Sports wasn't a rip off of EyeToy, they were entirely different concepts.

Also, if they remade OoT it'd make Nintendo realize that there's a lot more money in the serious section of gaming. Casual games suck balls and ruined Nintendo.
