I have got stuck playing the new Zelda so many times i find that i ask myself am i actually thick or what,my solace is a thing called Youtube which gives me the answer i need.
I know its cheating but when you Put a game on at night and 90 minutes later you are still trying to work out what to do next or where to go its a blessing in disguise to get the answer.
Sometimes its so obvious and other times its something you may never have spotted in a month of Sundays and other times its just me looking for something that was not there in the first place.
Even some of the puzzles in Zelda would tax the brain of most individuals,like you i have spent many hours been frustrated with Zelda and i have not played the game for a fair few weeks even though it really is a fantastic game in its own right.
But frustration does put me of many games and may be patience is not what it used to be even though i lacked it in the first place.
