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.

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!

The first Zelda game is hard, very hard, especially because of the freedom, hardly seen in newer entries of the same series. To play this game without a guide is a difficult but rewarding task. The game is one most influential games of all time because it was the perfect blend of genres like RPG and adventure, generating an entire new genre we all know today as action-adventure. Clever puzzles, a brilliant level design, great items selection, a gold cartridge and disney-based story of a lost princess are also high points of a simple, but not less exciting, game.

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.

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.

Fact: I haven't completed many old-school games. Fact: I have beaten this one, and after beating The Legend of Zelda on that hot June afternoon, I realized something that I had previously forgotten about video games over the past few years: Video games are extremely rewarding. When I finally slayed Ganon and was heralded as the hero of Hyrule by the princess herself, I acquired a feeling of accomplishment that I hadn't felt in many years. Ironically, this is the first Zelda game I've ever beaten, and that's weird considering I didn't grow up with the NES Why am I telling you my history with this game and not talking about it? Because you already know what makes the first Zelda so good and so groundbreaking. If you don't, PLAY IT.
