What?? And what about all the Rpg games where you can input the hero's name?
These are lazy patches. If you want to play as a woman, change the character graphics too, at least. The next will be Chrono Trigger?
I can't see why someone would waste time doing a patch like that.
I'm going to be defense on this one only once.
1. This was started by a dad who wanted to do something neat for their kid, if you've read the LTTP description. Cut the man some slack, he's probably doing the best to his ability and time. Wouldn't you want to do the best you could do for your daughter? Bias? Yeah, but put yourself in the father's shoes here. It's more than just "I did it just because" in this case.
2. Unsure if it was his intention or not (I'm betting 100% no because it never is), but there's also the side-joy of those who'd rather it unaltered. I know of some agender friends who think this is a neat idea.
I see your point, but there's always the option of making graphics addendums at least because he'd probably appreciate the helping hand. Also, sorry for bringing up the dead argument yet again.
The next will be Chrono Trigger?
I'm surprised the Oracle games or Majora's Mask weren't tackled first.
