    The game that started it all. No talking fairies, no helpful owls, not much of a story if you don't have the original instruction manual, but oh is this game a lot of fun. You will almost certainly need the help of an online FAQ or walkthrough if you've never played this before; imagine how tough this was for players in 1987 when the modern internet didn't exist! Every true Zelda fan must play this game at least once, whether on Wii Virtual Console or in its original shiny gold NES cartridge. Full Review »

    The Legend of Zelda, the original, is a great game that revolutionized it's genre. While it may be confusing for today's standards of a Zelda game due to you not knowing where to go without a walk-through. it can still be fun and challenging; in fact trust me while I say that this game is HARD, it may not be as hard as Zelda II: AoL but there are a lot of enemies that will probably downright frustrate you. Despite it's difficulty, this game is actually still very fun today so if you have $5 you don't need, get it now on the Virtual Console. Full Review »
