Man, I can't wait to play that Zelda game where you go through Hyrule (in like 4 different incarnations), Koholint, Termina, Holodrum, Labrynna, the flooded Hyrule, the post-WW "new Hyrule", and Skyloft. I mean, you'll only get heart pieces from bosses instead of full containers, but otherwise you'd max out at 20 really early on. And most of the dungeons will have items that you've already collected, but hey, what can you expect.
If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.
