Hello all fellow nerds who might be reading this. Today is the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series. And if you loved these games as much as I do, I’m sure you remember playing them like yesterday.
Perhaps you recall racing that annoying countdown clock to beat a dungeon, or going through hours and hours of side quests just to collect all of the masks in: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
Or maybe you remember risking your Gameboy by bringing it to school and hiding from the teachers while you played Link’s Awakening with a group of friends around you watching in awe.
Maybe you didn’t know about Link and his adventures until the Wii came out? Well that is perfectly fine because Twilight Princess was amazing!
Perhaps he was your favorite character in Super Smash Bros?
No matter which one is your favorite, whenever you played a zelda game you were guaranteed one thing: Hours upon hours upon hours of mindless questing, weapons, trading for a crazy stupid strong sword, and kicking chickens only to have them all gang up on you and kill you.
So go enjoy today, maybe dust off some of your old zelda games, and have a great fun-filled EXCITING ADVENTURE THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY BEATEN SEVERAL TIMES.
