[Anna writes…] A few days ago I shared with you all the great opportunity that I think video games could serve in connecting people with nature. I wrote that post a week or two ago, and just so happened to post and share right in time for the explosion of Pokémon Go after its release last Wednesday.
[Anna writes...] Recently a girl with a triforce tattoo sent me the trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the upcoming Nintendo release from our favorite video game series.
I would’ve been excited about any Zelda trailer, especially since I hadn’t heard about the new game. But after watching, this one had me excited for a new reason.
You see, I’ve been reflecting a lot lately on why some people are interested in nature, why others aren’t, and how it can all be explained by video games.
