The Legend of Zelda

It\'s dangerous to go alone.

Octorocks!!! Tectites!! Leeeeevers!! I still remember the cheesy TV commercial that first alterted me to the existance of this magical game. There simply is no NES game that I spent more time playing. I had every screen, every secret memorized. I played through both quests. I had never been more excited playing a game than the first time I took down Gannon and saved Princess Zelda. The was Nintendo at its best. It proved in a single cartrige why Nintendo owned the 80's home tevevision. You play Link. A young boy on a mission to save the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil being Gannon. You need to recover the 8 peices of the Tri-Force, a mystical triagle that holds unheard of power. The 8 peices are each housed deep in seperate dungeons. You need to search every part of Hyrule to find all the equipment you need. This is not a RPG in the traditional sense. But, for a early console title, it has some of the basic elements: inventory, ability to upgrade your character, currency, and a long involved quest. Nintendo has recently re-released this title on the Gameboy Advance. They didn't upgrade the graphics unfortunately. Even still, I reccomend this game wholeheatedly.
