To think that there were intentional FE undertones inserted into this game is simply...stupid. The reason the game world is flat is that it's simply easier, programmatically speaking, to represent it as such.

It would also be easier to provide a world without birds, trees, grass, and ponds. However, these were included in the game because the makers wanted to make a good representation of the Earth. If they wished to go into such deailed, Zelda's world in that game would have been spherical. It was not.
This is just silly. A world without birds, trees, grass or ponds isn't pleasing to the eye,and is contrary to the spirit of LoZ.
Representing a spherical world on the other hand,is something that wouldn't be missed.

This whole thread is silly to begin with.
If an atheist makes a game with gods in them,is he any less of an atheist?


If he is trying to make that game a representation of Earth, then yes.

I doubt Shigeru was trying to make LoZ replicate earth.
I mean its not like flat maps are uncommon.

If you cannot makes sense of that simple scentence, I suggest you go back to grade school. The Question1 obviously understood it.

I'm not saying Shigeru was trying to replicate Earth. That would be far too hard for the programmers to do as the Earth is huge. And it would take so long to travel that most gamers would shoot themselves as they would be running across empty fields for days.

I'm saying Shigeru was trying to copy as many characteristics of Earth as possible.

For what it's worth, most games take place in 'flat' worlds- few replicate any kind of curvature.

Surely this is solid evidence that a Flat Earth counter-resistance conspiracy exists within the video game industry.

this is only evidence that you are not smart. we've shown countless times that this is a fallacy. Just because you refuse to admit it, doesn't mean that it isn't true. you're argument is a complete non sequiter.

Again, reasons for a FE environment in a game summarized for those with short attention spans...

1. Limitations in storage space of the game media.
2. Limitations in system memory of the console and computer systems.
3. Creating a RE environment on the scale of a planet would add nothing to the gaming experience.
4. Programmers take shortcuts, but enhance and exaggerate smaller elements to get their end result. like FET.

Hahahaha, the round earthers are grasping at so many straws they have to ride off our side as trolls because they have no evidence to the contrary. I predict within my lifetime the Earth will be proven not to be round as you claim but flat. It says this in the bible and accurate science will tell you this as well.

Good day sir.

Well in mario galazy they also have flat platforms that do go upwards, and other Flat earth bodies, it doesn't nessarly conflict with FET. Also I'm not sure if the mushroom kindgom is on Earth.
Vongeo is a wanker, he wears a wanker hat; he always smells like urine and he thinks the Earth is flat.

No longer is this sentence is cut in half. Jekra!

The world is flat and the Ice Wall keeps the water from falling off. People fly planes all the time yet none is so bold as to fly around the earth because they KNOW they will fall off. This much is obvious.

I'm not really that pedantic. I won't scream if someone calls RE a sphere, claims that orbits are circular, and whatnot.
I do, however, object when someone is flat out wrong, eg. claims that applying a RE-like environment to a computer game is difficult and may be impossible due to limitations of some sort, says that something flawed works flawlessly, or uses classical fallacies.

RE-environment as in what? How accurate?

Applying an accurate round earth environment would probably be extremely hard. It's much easier to simply make the ground flat, then apply the other environmental stuff.

As accurate as it's currently done. You could draw that conclusion from my previous post.
