What an absolute classic. The one that started them all. Even had a cereal and cartoon made after it! Am I the only one who loved the cartoon?

And that Gold cartridge...so beautiful. Can't believe other companies never made similar gimmicks. Where's my silver cartridge?

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

Although the first Legend of Zelda is one of the hardest games ever made, it is surprisingly enjoyable. Sure, the dialogue looks a little cryptic and the enemies move in extremely erratic patterns. However, the unpredictable challenge still keeps me coming back for more. I just wish that this game had a more satisfying ending. The first Zelda is still a true classic, though.

Legend of Zelda has such a complex, fantastic, yet relatable story... The almost 20 games in the series, while at first seeming unrelated, are all connected with a story that spans the centuries and dimensions, creating a rich history full of grandeur. LEGEND is right.

And not only that - the emotion of each game, the poignant details, make us form a connection to the story. There is such a strong attachment to the land of Hyrule, the story of the fight of good against evil, because WE are in it. WE are Link, and we are in his world - each and every time.

What's best is that everyone can relate to these games. They aren't overly violent or inappropriate. Yet at the same time, there are very mature themes, subtle messages, that give the story such meaning. Both kids and adults - really, people of all ages - can appreciate the fine and detailed (and EPIC) storytelling of the Legend of Zelda.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

The beginning of gaming's most beloved franchise, and Nintendo could stand to learn a thing or two from it nowadays. The game throws you into a world and you have to explore for yourself; no hand holding. Playing this game as a kid opened up my mind and even just finding little secrets on my own was amazing. In fact no other game has ever rekindled that same sense of wonder and exploration as well as the first Zelda. It was remarkable at the time and still very playable today. Long live Zelda!

Freedom. Good action/adventure filled with secrets and freedom to play how you want. A must play. Still holds its surprises.

Well now, I think this page could use an opinion uninfluenced by nostalgia and retrospective fan hype. The open ended concept and second quest thing is cool. The game set up the basics of the formula used by many of the later games. But that's about it for positives; The original Zelda is repetitive, primitive and lacks atmosphere and focus. Some puzzles are a matter of tedious trial & error, and the dialogue is below criticism. As with Metroid, I don't think the series really took off quality-wise until the SNES game.

Score: 6.5 (Good!)

The influential start of one of the big game franchises. It hasn't aged as well as the Mario games in terms of graphics or playability, but the sense of exploration for the time was impressive. Hugely innovative in breaking gaming away from the quick quarter-munching designs of the arcades.

Score: 8.0 (Great!)
