So.... I think Aeron is autistic.... (not a joke topic)

Then I guess that makes Link autistic as well?

Link is a silent protagonist. That isn't what this topic is about. We never actually see what Link is saying, but the implication exists that he does speak. Aeron isn't a silent protagonist in the gaming terminology sense, he's a genuinely quiet person, and does actually say things. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the TC's assessment, Link is a completely different situation from this.

At first I thought he was a coward, but then he goes through great personal risk to retrieve stuff from the towers.

Then I thought he was just shy or socially awkward around people, but he talks to Mavda, a complete stranger, a lot more than to Elena.

Now I think the developers just made a bad character.

I came up with a similar theory about Yu Narukami in Persona 4 The Animation. I got modded for that for some strange reason.

Anime Yu has plenty of personality, thankfully.

Wow... that is insanely insulting to all people with Aspergers... Good job. You have effectively belittled them by saying they do not have personallities... wow.

People need to realize that games are art. Seriously, it's been proven over and over again. I think it's about time to people to man up and finally say this.

I really don't see the difference. Aeron says a few words here and there, but I consider him to be a silent protagonist because he doesn't have actual dialog, like Elena or Mavda.

It's implied that Link speaks? Where? The CD-i games?

Without knowing more of his backstory, it's difficult to say whether or not he's autistic, though it's a fairly plausible explanation.

I tend more toward thinking it's a thousand-year stare sort of thing. It's not full-blown PTSD, but it can be a precursor, and it's another thing one sees in a lot of soldiers.
