Released in the Stone Age of Video Games, this game stands as one of the most influential games ever released. Nintendo players quickly sent the message to Nintendo by making this one of the most played games released on the old NES, with this release staying in the top ten games as voted by Nintendo Power readers for several years. It would become the blueprint for RPG games, and its influence can be felt even now in the current game scene. Others would take this and see what they could do with it, and because of this game the RPG became an established genre, although this will always be the game that started it and stands at the beginning, casting a very long shadow over its descendants. But don't be mistaken, this RPG has some things that are very unlike its genre. Levels are not built up (this would be the next installment), and magic and that were not big concerns. Hearts were used instead of experience. But these would be incorporated in the other release, so even then Zelda has its hands on that as well.

So what is it about this game that so captured the imagination and the dollar of the average gamer? Well, one was the incredible depth of adventure that just permeated the entire thing. Released during a time when most games were side-scrollers, this set you in a world where you could explore and find items. There is the now standard item list, where you obtain items and use them to interact with the world about you. There are hidden dungeons that you must find, and you can burn bushes and push rocks, etc. It radically opened the power of the NES console up, and the gaming world would never be the same after this game.

To give a personal history, my brother and I got a Nintendo when it came out, playing all the standard games but somehow missing this one.

While I have not played an original NES game in a long, long time, I still cannot forget how wonderful it was to actually beat "The Legend Of Zelda" on my own five years after I had first played it. If you own an original NES but do not own this game, then you need to pay the $... (which is small beans considering it used to cost about $... back in its original 1987 release) and keep it in your NES for about two to three months until you defeat Ganon.
This game is incredible because of its immense challenge in all aspects. Perhaps the hardest part of this game is finding the nine dungeons (preferably in order) in which to defeat your main enemies to find the pieces of the Tri-Force. Besides your first "gift", a wooden sword, and believe me, it is a gift considering how difficult it is to find everything else, you will have to spend intricate time surveying every piece of land to truly be a Zelda genius.
The coolest part of this game is the musical score. The quick medieval music instantly drags you into the theme of the game and will keep you enthralled for a long time.
One little tip: when you eventually get into level 9, watch out for the room that will trap you in on all sides. Otherwise, you get no more help from me.
Peace and buy the game!

I would definitely recommend this to any rpg fan. Amazing story, and then a second version of the game upon beating it, really cool to see in such an old game! This game was so significant to the development of rpg's and adventure games and brings a whole new appreciation to where classic role playing elements come from. Definite 5 out of 5!
