This review contains spoilers

it really is impressive that i liked this as much as i did amidst the reworking/interpolation of some of my least favorite stuff from disco elysium

original version seems to be mostly abandoned by the creator (not that it demanded improvement but the site certificate was expired for a while) but https://redactle-unlimited.com not only works for daily/generating random ones but crucially adds multiplayer (the main way i play it, doing a few in a row with the group chat is a fun way to shoot the shit)
unlimited did recently add a feature that includes plurals/conjugations of guessed words (can be disabled in solo, always on in multiplayer) which i have mixed feelings on—it's def a nice quality of life feature but it can def work a little too well, giving related words you likely wouldn't have guessed otherwise (e.g. "wrought" from "work")

never actually had a copy of this to play from start to finish until the wii years but the official strategy guide my brother got with a nintendo power subscription was a formative literary work of my childhood
in first grade for a writing assignment i just started retelling the opening sequence of ocarina of time based on how often i had read it and my teacher was so impressed she had me come talk to her one on one to tell me how good of a story it was and how i should keep working on it. i never had the heart to break it to her
also continue to appreciate the guide's intro section where it laid out a (real-world) timeline of the preceding zelda games that treats them as a series of retellings & reinterpretations of myths and oral histories that are inherently not going to resolve into a cohesive whole rather than the ensuing years of "zelda timeline EXPLAINED" shit
