Link is Realistically Over-Encumbered

One of the biggest realism issues video games have always faced is where, exactly, your character puts all of the items he or she has collected over the course of the adventure. Perhaps the most egregious offenders of inventory realism are RPGs and adventure games. How does Cloud carry around 99 Phoenix Downs and an arsenal of humongous swords? How do Elder Scrolls characters carry 300-plus pounds of junk on their person as they sneak around cities? DeviantART user WakaBee took these questions to heart, and whipped up a rendition of Link if all of the items he lugged around were visible. For some reason, he looks determined, rather than sweaty, sore, and collapsed on the ground under the weight of all his empty bottles.
