Great advise from a Zelda developer

I don’t want to fuck this up, but I think it goes something like this:

“Make the challenge challengable.”

I know for sure that this quote, or its equivalent translation in English, comes from a Zelda developer. Who this person is, what role they had in crafting this incredible game, and the exact wording I don’t know. I Google’d it and couldn’t find it, so I’m pretty sure I got this off a YouTube vid I was watching.

In any case, I think it’s exceptional, and helpful. That’s why I’m sharing it with you. See...

My employer expects a god damn lot out of me, and the rules constantly change. They just changed last week. A previously challengable challenge now seems unchallengeable, so I say fuck ‘em. Built or learned inside of me somewhere wants to do a good job, and if the person paying me measures “a good job” as a “challenge that must be met” in this case, then I want to at least meet that expectation. Capitalism I think is the word, which boils down to hookering your time and skills for money. Fine! But make it realistic you bastards!

Another thing to add: I spend a great deal of time by myself, and I prefer that. I spend this time thinking, reading, smoking, drinking, and masturbating. To a lot of people, this seems maddening, but let’s let the psychology majors handle this one. Something about introverts and extroverts. Something about how people get their “energy.” Blah blah blah. I don’t see any concrete answer really... just a bunch of conjecture with fancy words. Or in other words the entire field of psychology, up to and including doctors.

If any professionals are reading this: keep doing good work! This stuff is probably super helpful to a lot of people, particularly those who aren’t very confident and need other people’s permission to be a human being.

To the people still trolling this site and wading through garbage to find something worth reading
, cheers! You have dignity. The others won’t read this because they’re too busy holding up their smarphones for yet another fake smile.

Edit: I don’t spend “a great deal of time” masturbating.


That right there is the root of your problem.

Onanistic behaviour is frowned upon by the Church.
Nevertheless, your candour in admitting to the world that you have somewhat of a proclivity for such behaviour is rather refreshing.
Myself, I have mastered the technique of “prolongimusnus”. By thinking of Theresa May at the point of no return, I have garnished for my delectation, one and one half, extra seconds.

I sense that you haven’t carefully thought about your audience. Or, for that matter, what your point is. Nail those things, and still, no one will give a shit.

I don't think that edit was necessary.

Edit: I don’t spend “a great deal of time” masturbating. I wish!

Anyway, we'd like to thank you for the occasional moments of peace and
love our family's experienced ... well, not today. You saw what
happened. Oh, Lord, be honest. Are we the most pathetic family in
the universe, or what?
