The Answer is Blowin’ in the Wind

I actually do have a personal anecdote about video games and wind! Growing up, it was my favorite element in all the games I played, making me particularly fond of elementals like Sylph…

…wind-based gimmicks…

I don’t care what people say, I love sailing in this game.

…and wind-oriented towns.

Heck, I liked the name “Windia” so much that it was what I called my Animal Crossing town until the last game.

I also used to love running around at the coast and pretending I could get carried away by the wind like The Flying Nun.

Who needs things like wings to fly?

I was such a win-dork, that when I played Final Fantasy XI I lived in the Federation of Windhurst!

Though the leveling system took the wind out of my sails.

I don’t really have much else to say than this though. I just really liked wind growing up. I’m still pretty partial to it, though now I find myself with a greater affinity towards water. So I guess I’ll just stop here, since I’m so full of hot air.

Also I’ll just leave this here…
