It doesn't even need to be Link.

Nintendo can just have a random village girl naming herself "Link" for plot reason, and if backed up by an amazing story, it could very much work out.

it wont work out because the whole thing is so arbitrary, it will be distracting you from the game.

No it wouldn't. Stop assuming.

You can't be this ignorant of both Zelda and Metroid. The narrative of the two series isn't even remotely comparable.

All that matters in the end is this: Nothing about Link's character would be betrayed if he were to be turned into a girl.

where does the force come from? is it midichlorians or mysticism?

who shot first, han or greedo?

Not even remotely comparable.

and yet, you have no argument.
get out of my thread.

My argument is that your comparisons are laughably invalid, and it's blatantly obvious why to anyone who thinks for a few seconds.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

^ This.

It's clear as day that TC is prejudiced and against the Idea of a playable MC in a Zelda game.

Again there is no betrayal of the character. Being a guy is not what makes Link, Link. Being courageous and determined makes Link, Link.

Notice how I never mentioned a Female Link, but instead, Female Main Character, and then I suggested that this female character could change her name to Link.

Fire Emblem : Awakening Spoilers,
Did Lucina traveling back in time, and taking the name "Marth", while also completely changing her appearance to match said name, bring any shame to the name Marth?

No, not in the least bit.

I never said Link should be female, in fact, I'm opposed to the idea, but that doesn't mean Zelda can't have a Female lead.

This is why no one wants to give you a proper thought out argument TC, since you're not even seriously reading them.

It wouldn't be a betrayal..It just would make absolutely no sense...why change something that has remained the same for almost 30 years and that would have NO effect on gameplay?

Why not? Come on now just because something has been the same for so long doesn't mean there shouldn't be change. Even if not female Link, are you opposed to the idea of Zelda as the MC?
