Note: I will try to post more often but not so much in this community at the moment. I have roms on the Wii that I can use to review some older Nintendo games and can buy them on the virtual console, but as is the definite case for the Genesis, I don't have the older consoles, so I can honestly review a game until I have played it recently. I'm sure you can understand that I can't review what I don't have. I'm nineteen and until I'm on my own after university, my plans of being an avid reviewer will be at a slowdown. So be patient and while your waiting, check out my other communities. 

CCG 2: The Next Generation
The Big 3

I had only stumbled across the original Legend of Zelda in recent years. E ven though I had I NES growing up with all three Mario Bros. (Well excluding the real SMB 2, stupid Doki Doki), I had never heard of Zelda until I got my SNES. I believe it was a used unofficial bundle that included both Super Mario World and A Link to the Past, ALTTP instead of a second controller. At the time, medieval based stuff like toys and stories were my thing. Now, I still love the whole knights, princesses, and dragons thing. I really didn't have an opinion on graphics, but it was Zelda and for a NES game it was huge and over the top. To this day, I have not seen nor heard of a NES cart that has had a save feature, maybe excluding Final Fantasy? (Don't quote me on that). It was awesome in all its 8-bit glory and I felt privileged to play the game that started it all. My only complaint was that the dungeons were non-linear in the sense you could go anywhere and do anything you chose (for the most part). It was one of those where the hell do I go games. It had me stunned a little because ALTTP onward, you had a set path for the dungeons and you were always pointed in the right direction if not sometimes subtle. Besides that gripe, the original Legend of Zelda was epic and if you haven't played it, I recommend to go check it out!

The Game That Started a Legend!
The first Zelda game ever released. This game was like no other. It was the first game to include directions to move, other than side scrolling, you could move up and down as well. It was also one of the biggest adventure games of it's time. I mean the game had a save feature, which was new at the time, it was that big! It contained nine action-packed dungeons to explore, each with a boss at the end (the final boss being Ganon). There were swords and items to find, and princesses to save. Time …

The premire search and adventure game and it's and undeniable classic. Move Link around hyrule collecting bombs rubies and more. That labyrinth music is still chilling.

About this topic


The Legend of Zelda‚Äč, occasionally called Legend of Zelda or Zelda is a high fantasy action-adventure video game series created by Japanese game designers Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. It was developed and published by Nintendo, with some portable installments outsourced to Flagship/Capcom and Vanpool. Considered one of Nintendo's most important franchises, its gameplay consists of a mixture of action, adventure, and puzzle solving. The series centers on Link, the playable main character and protagonist. Link is often given the task of rescuing Princess Zelda in the most common setting of the series, Hyrule, from Ganon—also known as Ganondorf—who is the primary antagonist of the series. However, other settings and antagonists have appeared throughout the games, with Vaati having recently become the series' secondary antagonist. The story commonly involves a relic known as the Triforce, which is a set of three golden triangles of omnipotence. Link holds the Triforce of Courage, Zelda holds the Triforce of Wisdom, and Ganon holds the triforce of Power. The protagonist in each game is usually not the same incarnation of Link, but a few exceptions do exist.

As of April 2010, The Legend of Zelda series has sold over 59 million copies since ...
