In this recent episode of Game/Show Jamin asks "Why can't Link be a girl?" And whereas that's not a bad question, i'd rather flip it to ask why Zelda can't be the hero of a game named after her? She seems capable and I bet Link could use a vacation. Jamin asks the question if people may be turned off by Link being a female and as I thought about it I imagine some would be. That said those people are more rare these days and getting a great Zelda game featuring Zelda or Femlink would be too interesting to avoid.

I was talking about this the other day with friends and one of them mentioned Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon as a game that features Zelda as the main character. I mentioned that terrible games shouldn't count for much AND that it wasn't made by Nintendo anyway. Not to say it doesn't officially count in the Zelda-verse cannon, I would just prefer a good game to come out of Zelda as the star.

What do you think, should Zelda or Femlink star in her own game or should we keep getting everyone favorite Kokiri?

I would support a female Link or a game where the player controls Zelda.

Jamin answered the question when he relayed that most males don't seem to care, as long as said female protagonist is in a good game. I wouldn't mind hearing a different story from the Zelda universe, maybe even from a completely new character. Give Link and Zelda both a rest.
