“I am Error.”

From: The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventures of Link

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Error

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the classic video game RPG on the NES, The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventures of Link. It is a sequel to Shigeru Miyamoto’s first game in the series and takes a departure from the top-down view that the series was known for by going for a 2D sidescroller look.

The quote comes from a specific character Link encounters in the town of Ruto. Talking to him will make him say the infamous quote. Originally, his name in the Famicom Disk System of the game is Era and, for some reason, it was translated. Yet, his “twin” Bagu, which means “bug,” who lives in the Moruge Forest was not.

While it is humorous to find out about his weird name, he does serve a purpose as he does give Link a clue on how to enter the third dungeon.

Geek wisdom: Everyone can feel like he or see is just a mistake. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a reason to be in the world. Like Error, he might seem like a joke but, without him, Link would not be able to progress.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
