20 Years of The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda is celebrating 20 years. 1UP made a great special called Two Decades of Zelda – 20 years, 20 reasons Link still rocks.

Twenty years ago this week — February 21, 1986 — thousands of Japanese gamers played The Legend of Zelda for the first time, and their perspective on gaming was forever changed. Here was a huge world, a massive quest, an open-ended odyssey that demanded exploration. When we Americans first placed that golden cartridge in our Nintendo Entertainment Systems a few months later, we learned what our friends overseas had already discovered: Zelda was addictive. It was adventurous. It was ambitious. It was amazing.

I played it many years ago, more than a decade and I remember that I was very bad playing it – as usual – precisely so it was amusing. 4 color rebellion made a post about it, Happy 20th B-Day Link! with the line of the evolution of Link, while the official site, Zelda Universe, stay quiet about it. But I think that the best way to celebrate is playing it, no? (via /.)

    I can’t resist to silly flash games, it’s stronger than me. When I see, I’m already playing them. But don’t ask me why I have few posts about them here, even in the games category. Today I’m making one more addition to that poor list with Chuck Norris…
