This is the 2nd issue of the Weekly Retro Video Game Fix – Let’s get your fix!
Welcome to the 2nd issue of retro Weekly Retro Video Game Fix. So what game are we going to talk about this week? Let’s talk about the Legend of Zelda series. How many people like this game? I know I do, it’s a constant reminder of my childhood. Owning this game as a game collector is a must have. I’m a fan of the entire Zelda Series.
How many of you called Link, Zelda? I know I did, and didn’t realize it was link until the 2nd game came out. The adventures of link, plus the Cartoon show that played on Saturday mornings. The legend of Zelda for both Nintendo and Super Nintendo was always my favorite game to play in the morning as a kid. Have you ever got to the ending of the game and said I never want this game to end, and it ends. Well the legend of Zelda was one of those game. Most of the series was that feeling.
The legend of Zelda the link to the past was a great edition to the series, bringing a more ideal storyline and an awesome different world. After the SNES it then was the Gameboy color. How many people played this series? I know I played the entire series. These games are easy to play now digitally, rather than the actual copy. The Gameboy color is way too hard to see for me.
Next you would have one of the most awesome Zelda games to be brought to you in 3D world. The legend of Zelda the ocarina of time. This game was epic. I always puzzled by link and his metal boots. Love those back flips Link. You must pump iron. Anyways, the game brought the series to the new approach with a 3d world and a more real story. Of course at the same time N64 was having Legend of Zelda ocarina of time, they also had another one within the year, the Mask of Majoria. Another great game that brought another great story for the Legend of Zelda Series. You even changed into a Zora! It was pretty sweet and one of my favorites.
During the same time the N64 was out, the Gameboy advance was out and brought a few remakes and new Zelda titles. The legend of Zelda the four swords, and the legend of Zelda Minish cap was just new editions to the series. They were both good, but it’s hard to play the game on the Gameboy advance. Of course, if you have a Wii or Wii u, you can get it digitally. You also had the Legend of Zelda link to the past remake.
Next generations was the GameCube with many awesome Zelda games, plus remakes of the N64 versions of Zelda. The collector’s edition that contained 4 different Zelda games in one was a really cool game to have for the GameCube. You also had 2 new Zelda games for the GameCube. You had the Legend of Zelda Windwaker and later, once launched on the Wii, Twilight Princess. These were both great games.
After the GameCube, it was a time for major change with the Wii. I don’t really like the Wii Remote, but it was still a really good Zelda. Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword was one of the last few games to be on the Wii. The game still goes for a lot on eBay.
The Wii U hasn't produced any new Zelda games, unless you want to say Hyrule Warriors is a Zelda game. They did make a HD version of The legend of Zelda Windwaker, which was awesome. They are planning another Legend of Zelda on the Wii U and it looks promising. Lets hope its good.
Let me know what you would like to have in the next weeks Retro NEWS!
