I just had to post this.

I was just watching another OoT video on Youtube and it instantly took me back to the Christmas day that I first played this game, and how amazing it felt to be playing it. After months of anticipation, it was greater than I had imagined. Watching the other video actually gave me butterflies in my stomach just reminiscing. That is why this will always be the greatest game ever made, even now it still excites me just as much as it did when it first came out, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

I also find it funny that they banned this trailer.

This is quite amusing, though being the Zelda geek I am, a few things annoyed me. First, they say this would be a 1987 film, yet the name Ganondorf didn’t appear until 1991, when his full name was listed in the Link to the Past manual as Ganondorf Dragmire. Also Tingle and Midna did not appear until 2000, and 2006 respectively.

Aside from that it amused me, they just need to get a few of their facts right next time.

One of the most iconic franchises in the business, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda, celebrates its 25th anniversary today. This is the day that the original Zelda went on sale in Japan, kickstarting a series that would sell 59 million units worldwide.
There have been seventeen games in total, with this year seeing the release of Ocarina of Time on the 3DS and Skyward Sword on the Wii. 
It’s strange how a series can be so repetitive and yet feel so fresh. There’s a certain magic to Zelda that I don’t think any other series has managed to bottle quite so successfully. Each new Zelda game feels like reacquainting with an old friend, albeit one who’s done something with their hair that you can’t quite work out.
So, happy birthday, Zelda! Please let us know which Zelda game was your favorite (has to be Wind Waker for me!).

For me it has to be Link’s Awakening, possibly one of the strangest in the series, and doesn’t actually feature Zelda herself, or even a proper Ganon. It was however the first game of the series that I played (as the DX version), and the game that made me a Zelda fan.

this game has more emotional depth than 90% of the movies i’ve seen.
seriously, it’s a fucking masterpiece.

when they show the last panel in the credits and you piece it all together for the first time… it’s the saddest thing.

*slow clap*

I can’t believe I’ve still never played this. I’ve played and completed all the others, but never even attempted this one.
