Zelda first came out (in Japan, and then in the US a short time later) on February 21, 1986, and ushered in a new type of adventure game.
Cheers,

I never got a nintendo 64, the only old console I had was a NES.

I grew up with Metal Gear Solid and Half Life. Before that was mario, Star Force, and world cup soccer.

I loved the first Zelda! Of course, I remember the days of the Atari 2400, with a joystick that had one button! Space invaders anyone?! There there was the original NES....long live metal gear! And who would've thought to make a game where to beat it you have to actually hit the reset button!!!!!!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

My friend and I would play the original for NES forever. I think eventually we wore out the "gold" covering on the cartridge. Truly an amazing game, I can't imagine where games would be without it.
