I had a conversation the other day with a friend of mine about how I usually hate it when the vast population start liking things that I like. I know this is elitist and arrogant but I attribute it to being like a secret that isn't fun anymore when everyone is in on it. My biggest example to my friend was the video game series, "The Legend of Zelda". I have been playing the Legend of Zelda series since I was about four or five (which was funny when my friend tried to say, "What? Its not like you've been playing it since you were like four or something...to which I replied, "Well, actually I have...). So, from this, I am definitely allowed to say that I have "been there from the beginning". I have since went onto play every Zelda game that has ever come out (which is not an easy task since there are 12 of them...so far). But among non-extreme Zelda players, everyone agrees that the best Zelda game that has ever come out was The Legend of Zelda:Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64. Sadly, I am forced to agree with them on this issue. I have even heard from people that said, "Oh yeah, I never play video games but I played Ocarina of Time and its probably the best game I've ever played." Should I be glad that my favorite video game series has received the much lauded fame that it deserves or should I feel how I am inclined to feel, which is that some people just won't understand the games like I do? This doesn't stop with Zelda either. This extends to all of my favorite things, since most of the things I like in the entertainment industry, most people know about as well. My friend concluded that he knew what I was saying, but that it was pompous to feel that way. But, I suppose everyone has to have their "thing". We just go about doing that in different ways.
