You don't have to do anything, it's an RPG so make your own story. Maybe your link just went back to bed and didn't give a fuck about saving hyrule.

How do you seriously function as a human being?

I remember I had to ask a friend how to leave my house in Pokemon Red. How was I supposed to know that those weird rectangles were supposed to be mud mats to signify a door?

How were you supposed to know to insert the game?

I got stuck in mario 64 as a kid because I went in the front door and bowser told me to leave so I left and couldn't find another way in.

How the fuck was I supposed to know to buy games in order to play on my new N64!?

Because in games it's assumed that if you're inside something you have to get out as part of the gameplay where you have to do something and if there's nothing else to do while you're inside something then you must get out.
>>
>>323515528

You don't. The idea is that you'll probably run around in a circle at the edges of the room trying to see what you can do or examine. You'll eventually work your way towards the door and make it outside.

My brother skipped the opening cinematic of Fallout 1 and spent like half an hour trying to get back into the Vault, thinking that's where he was supposed to go. Kept exploring the cave looking for keys or something.

How did you know that you were supposed to breath?
>>
how were you supposed to know this post would be a 2?
>>
>>323516625
there's a part of your brain that has the specific function of making you breathe and make your heart beat. it's literally impossible to stop breathing by accident.

I had no idea how to leave the house at the beginning of Pokemon. I was stuck inside for about 30 minutes.

>Alright Link, it's time to start our journey! Let's head outside and go meet with the Great Deku Tree!
The dialogue made it pretty clear what you were meant to do.

hello reddit

Hi Tumblr.

>>323516493
>>323516387
The N64 user manuals describes this process.
>>
>>323516875
But you live in a tree. Once could assume that it is the Deku tree. I didnt leave that house for 4 years, but I still played every day. Really shows just how good this game is.
>>
>>323516407

LOL NOOB

You are supposed to test the water engine and climb trees

She said 'head outside'.

>>323517062
And where exactly on the box does it tell you to read a manual? I didnt expect to have to dig through the garbage where I immediately discarded all packaging for my n64 to find some gay book?
>>
>>323515528
What the fuck?

Anybody ever didnt realize that open door was an exit? Did you think the game was spent in links bedroom?

I knew I was supposed to leave the house because navi enters the room the exact same way you exit it, and im not retarded.

>>
>>323516875

And how exactly are you supposed to know how to go outside of your room? Admittedly, it took me about 20 minutes, but once I got out and explored everywhere, there was this kid who kept sliding around and blocked me from going to the one area I obviously haven't gone to yet.
>>
>>323517228

The employee you buy the game from is supposed to tell you to read the manual so that you know to insert the cartridge into the video game machine.

2 problems here, you then go outside of your bed into your room. On top of that the aerial camera angle doesnt indicate whether or not there is a roof over your head. You could be on top of the Deku tree already.


Really, the game could have at least put a small arrow or a glow around the doorframe, but, alas, methinks the devs just didnt have the prowess to do so in that far off yesteryear. Still, the game is a god amongst its peers, and I am constantly aware of this whilst I am playing it.

>>323517395

Yeah, see, I did. This is a really good example of where in-game tutorials from that era were completely confusing and unhelpful. I guess it could be chalked up to a bad translation, which from what I read on hardcore 101 was really common at the time, but I was just running around the forest town and couldn't do anything. Like I said there was a big hallway I wanted to go down, but there was an elf kid who would constantly block me and wouldn't let me go further into the story.

>pretending to be retarded is 'trolling'

Causing people to dismiss you derisively doesn't mean they're upset.
>>
>>323516830
same happened except it was in the first town in crystal, didnt know how to make elm give you a pokemon, also didnt speak a word of english
>>
>>323517395

I did and I gotta say I'm not impressed with how little there is to do. Maybe it's because of the memory capacity of the N64 carts, but I'm hopping on lily pads and crawling through tunnels, which is sort of endearing but the whole game world really only feels like a tech demo. Then suddenly a UFO starts shooting at me. I really don't get this game.
