I am going to confine my interpretation of the Classic Game as any game from my first system the NES. With that in mind here is my latest entry on the 30 Day Video Game Challenge
This was the first Legend of Zelda game I owned and I used to play it almost every day when I was 6. Never beat it though until I discovered emulators, roms and save states when I was much older.
One of the misunderstood Legend of Zelda Games. This game got some bad reviews and is considered one of the worst in the series. I on the other hand love it. The storytelling that went into this game was epic for it’s time and it really established the Zelda legend. If you don’t know what I mean, check this picture set out.
This was a hard pick with so many classic games so I will mention a few just from the NES that were considered. There were also plenty more across other systems that could have easily won.
Mega Man 2 - check it out, it’s awesome
Mega Man 3 -
Super Mario Bros 3
Tenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Legend of Zelda
Leaving my number 1 Character as:
I chose this picture especially because it represents more of why Link would be my favourite character, even though he doesn’t talk.
I have played and still own every console LoZ (haven’t beaten SS though, it’s probably my least favourite). Link represents all that is good about games. Exploration, story-telling, escapism… From a character point of view he has also had heaps of different styles throughout the games. AND gets some of the most outrageous powers, weapons, items all while sticking to a trusty sword and shield.
The fact that the character has been established over 25+ years in one of the worlds leading franchises should be enough to make Link a favourite character for almost any gamer.
