The first game that actually made me think while playing it - you had to find certain items before you could explore the next level. That alone made it a great game but the iconic story and character begot a legend. Zelda still survives, and this initial effort is a big reason why.

A True Classic

The Legend of Zelda is one of the best games on the NES. It had the right formula. A large world to explore, dungeons, items, bosses, and mind blowing puzzles.

The first time you play the game, you might find dungeon level 8 before 4. You might not even know there's a level 3 master sword or a ring to give you more defense. You might not even get close to completely filling your health. Hours and hours you can spend on this game. AND, if you happen to beat it, there's a SECOND quest where you can walk through walls!

Yep, this game has it all. A great first game of a great series.

Best Game of All Time

Probably the best NES game of all time, and possibly the best video game of all time. I still remember all the aspects and mysteries of the game and would play it again right now if I still had a Nintendo. Zelda has had many more games since, but this one, the original is clearly the best and will never be beat. Despite advances in gaming graphics and 3D worlds, the true essence of this game has never been duplicated.
