Remembering the NES: The Legend of Zelda

Carl B. of iNintendo.net writes, "On February 21, 1986, Nintendo released what would turn out to be the first ever million seller on NES; this title was the starting point for one of the greatest franchises in all of gaming: The Legend of Zelda. Inspired by Shigeru Miyamoto's explorations of the hillsides in Sonobe, Japan, The Legend of Zelda blew away gamers when it released on Nintendo's 8-bit system. It features an open world to explore, nine challenging dungeons, and many secrets to uncover. After 25 years, how does the original classic hold up?" (Nintendo DS, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, Wii) 84/100

I have a hard time going back to 8 and 16 bit classics merely for the graphics but this one has always been an exception.

You can replace it, but you have to be careful not to damage anything.

My favorite Zelda. Probably always will be.

There have only been 2 real Zelda games in my book, and it's the original and OoT! Everything else was just too far off from the original experience!

I guess you could say they are the same since OoT is essentially a 3d version of the first one! Sounds strange, but compare similarities.

For me it was the original and the one on Super Nintendo.

" and it's the original and OoT"

You mean Link to the past ;D

I remember getting this game. Everyone on my block got it the same day and we finished it a day later. I remember running to the neighbors house and asking how to get past the Lost Forest.

@Turtle
We were hardcore back in those days. I remember one of my friends left Mega Man 1 on all night because he made it to the Wily stage then had to go to bed. There were no saves or passwords so he left his NES on all night on pause and finished it the next morning.
