A Jeopardy contestant uses her air-time on the show to talk about how much she loves playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

After making its debut in Japan back in 1986 on the Famicom Disk System, The Legend of Zelda continues to delight fans to this current day on the Nintendo Switch with the highly successful release of Breath of the Wild in March 2017.

Over four years on and players still love nothing more than diving into its rich environments, vast puzzle system, and quirky characters. You can guarantee that somewhere on the internet on a daily basis, someone is either creating cosplays of the characters, participating in speedruns or still finding unique ways to explore its world.

It’s of no surprise to find Zelda fans everywhere who are more than happy to chit-chat about the game at any opportunity. Just like this contestant who isn’t afraid to tell the new Jeopardy host Mike Richards about her gaming passion.

Just in case you haven’t heard of the American show before now, Jeopardy, which first debuted in 1964, is a quiz competition in which contestants are presented with general knowledge clues in the form of answers, and must phrase their responses in the form of questions.

Gabbie Kim, a mother of two from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania gets some time to chat to host Mike Richards before getting stuck into the show. Richards states that Gabbie has a passion for a classic 80s video game with Gabbie then elaborating further on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

“Their most recent game I played excessively when I was pregnant with both of my children because I was too sick to do anything but play and I have raked up around 700 hours of play at this point” said Gabbie.

Richards asks Gabbie if she will teach her kids to play Zelda and without missing a beat, Ms Kim tells him that as soon as “they are old enough to hold a controller without throwing it at me or the screen, we’re golden”.

That’s what you call parenting done right.
