Classic Games (Games)

harrymcc writes The Legend of Zelda originated 25 years ago today, when Nintendo released the original game for its Famicom console in Japan on February 21st, 1986. Benj Edwards is celebrating with a look at some of the franchise’s odder sidelights, from a version broadcast by satellite to the unexpected true story of where the game got its name.” If you’re in the mood for more nostalgia, 1Up has a collection of articles delving into the past two and a half decades of Zelda.
