I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Legend of Zelda Turns 25 Today!

Posted on Monday, February 21 @ 07:00:00 Eastern by

So Mario got the big birthday celebration, I get that. He's the recognizable one, the media darling. Frankly, if anyone deserves a birthday bash, it's Link. The little green-clad fellow has been around the block quite a few times. He's grown older, younger, then older again! Today, he turns 25.

That's right, 25 years ago today, Nintendo published The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Since that initial release, Nintendo has published 14 main titles in the series, including classics like A Link to the Past, The Wind Waker, and what many still believe to be the best game ever made: The Ocarina of Time.

With all that princess-saving, world-rescuing work under his deku-belt, you'd think Link, Zelda, and the monsters that flood Hyrule on occasion deserve a little party, right? Unfortunately, you'll have to scour your local second hand store to wrap up your own special edition anniversary bundle of classic Zelda titles.

Despite being one of the most venerable, lasting characters in video game lore, Link and the rest of the cast haven't yet been flogged to death in sports games or board games like Mario has. For that, he will ever retain a place of respect in our minds and hearts.

What was your favorite Zelda game? I hear Majora's Mask is the trendy title these days, but I'll always keep a spot for A Link to the Past in my heart.

Do you have a Zelda memory to share? To kick us off, I'll admit that in Hyrule Castle in A Link to the Past it took me weeks before I figured out that I was supposed to cut the curtains in the back of the room. Still, I never looked at a guide. Finally knowing where to move to next was such a huge reward after all that stuggle.
