Aonuma discusses the 5 stages of grief in relation to The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

A portion of a Game Informer interview with Eiji Aonuma...

Game Informer: Some fans speculate that Majora's Mask is a metaphor for the stages of grief. The towns-folk are in denial of the moon falling; the Deku King is punishing the monkey out of anger; the ghost in the snow temple is bargaining for a return to the world of the living; Lulu in the Zora Temple is battling with depression; and the final temple could be considered acceptance as it wraps up Link's journey. Was this considered during development, or is this just a fan interpretation?

Eiji Aonuma: It's certainly true that each one of these different episodes you talked about has a different emotional cast to it. One feels like it's tinged with sadness, and another with anger - that certainly was intentional. But, I also want to point out that it's not that each one of these episodes only has the one emotion that they are conveying. There are certainly other notes that we're trying to hit as well, and the reason we did this is always to allow the player to experience that emotion - to give them a chance to hook into the emotional tone of this scene and react to it and feel like they want to accomplish something in the game as a result.

25th Anniversary of Nintendo World Championships to be celebrated in Denton, Texas

atrickScottPatterson.com - March 4, 2015 - DENTON, Texas -- On March 7, 1990 nearly a dozen semi truck trailers pulled up to Fair Park in Dallas, Texas for the first stop of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships. On March 7 and 8, 2015,
key video game personalities are coming together in a Denton, Texas gaming shop to celebrate.

Multi-media and pop culture personality Patrick Scott Patterson is teaming with Freaks and Geeks at 1629 N. Elm Street in Denton this Saturday and Sunday to celebrate this key even in competitive video gaming history.

"Nobody had attempted a video game competition on such a grand scale before the NWC did," said Patterson, who reached the Dallas semi-finals in 1990. "Over a million players took part in the competition as it went across North America that year and it all started right here in North Texas. The true birth of eSports started here. It is important to recognize and celebrate this history."

Among the activities in the two-day celebration includes a visit from Thor Aackerlund, the Plano resident who eventually stood at the sole winner of the nationwide tour's finals in Universal Studios Hollywood, along with competition on the NES Remix 2's Nintendo World Championships Remix on the Wii U, a screening of films related to the competition and more.

The events kick off at 3 p.m. at Freaks and Geeks on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

About Patrick Scott Patterson: A 33-year plus veteran of the video game world, Patterson appears in film, television and live events across the country to speak about video game history and culture both past and present. He most recently appeared in the critically acclaimed film World 1-1, which chronicles the early history of Atari and is part of the cast in upcoming film Nintendo Quest, which speaks to the legacy of the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System.

Patterson is available for media interviews about this event both leading into and during the event itself. Contact him at (940) 231-1211 with inquiries.
