:open_book: Back to my home post

Well, that week wasn’t very productive. Too much going on and too many prior commitments, but whenever I managed to read while playing Zelda I was very focused in trying to understand as much as possible.

I think I was very successful! The auto-advancing cutscenes were very hard to follow, but I did get some things out of them. Some shrines also have auto-advancing text for explaining the goal of the shrine, which is bad when it’s too fast and you have no clue what they want from you. Luckily for now it’s been relatively easy to guess / McGyver my way out of there.

Reading in a videogame instead of simply reading a book has some pros I haven’t thought of before. For example, I can select an item from my inventory and use it for various things, which informs me of its properties. This in turn helps me interpret the flavour text. A more interactive experience let’s you examine the text from more angles without consulting a dictionary and I feel like it is a very nice way to learn / reinforce knowledge.
