Quote :
The moral vacuum of dreams is discomfiting. I’m wandering backcountry Pennsylvania roads, somehow back in college, and I’m outdoors with my indoor cat. I’m distracted, knowing I’ve missed class again. Naturally. When a car hits my cat, I catch the driver on foot and punch him until he loses consciousness. What in the hell is this awful crap? I’ve shirked my responsibilities as a pet owner, student, and pacifist. The dream version of myself just rolls with it, though. Dreams have no moral stakes, and we’re at their mercy.

This screams "overthinking somewhat", but it's an amusing overthinking.

Like the best midnight-snack-fueled freakout dreams, Link’s Awakening eases into its Morphean strangeness
Quote :
Link’s Awakening turns into a game about putting one foot in front of the other after becoming truly aware of that inevitable doom. Such a fatalistic march may not have the noble sheen of saving the world, but it’s a more universal experience.

That was well written, sure, but it reeks of overthinking it. Worth a read for joyous lines like the ones quoted above.
