The Legend of Nostalgia

Zelda Informer: "My story is a simple one. I was a boy of 11, excited that after months and months of saving, I finally held in my possession $267.83. With this money, I could purchase a piece of machinery so advanced, so promising in its capacity for fun, that I would never again have a dull day. I’m talking, of course, about the day I finally got a Wii. After weeks of calling Walmart after Walmart for any new shipments, the glorious day finally came. I gave my mom the required $250 and went to soccer practice in with an irrepressible excitement, for I knew that when I returned home in that red minivan, it would be waiting for me.

But... it was bedtime, and school started tomorrow..." (3DS, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)

I've had moments like these myself. It's really quite amazing that the franchise still gives me good times after having grown with it over the years.

People may claim this series is the same game over and over, but I love how well the formula works and what new ideas they throw at it with each new generation, Majora's Mask dark atmosphere and story as well as Skyward Sword's solid motion control and beautiful art style to name a couple.

Forgive the otherwise predictable praise. I'm in a Zelda-type mood this month.
