80s Awesomeness! ~ 48

The Legend of Zelda!!!

Yeah, I come from a time when we had to blow in our video games to make them work. And work they did! Google did not exist to solve all our life's problems.

Anyway, Zelda! I wasn't a huge fan of Zelda, mainly because I kept getting stuck at a certain point and couldn't move beyond it. Usually I'd end up hurling my controller across the room . . . only to have it bounce back since it was still attached to the console. Zelda's still around so I don't think I need to explain it but it's certainly come a long way from it's original 1D super pixel status.

Oh man - I loved this game! I still have it (and maybe I still play it :)

I've recently rediscovered Zelda with my DS, and it reminded me that I also used to get stuck when I played it on the good ole NES. So I downloaded it to my Wii, and I have been SOOOO loving it! Yay Zelda! :-)

Wow, I forgot about blowing on those stupid things! My brother was the video game king at our house and was always doing that. Nintendo was a huge deal too after black and white Pong. We did love it though and my kids laugh their asses off when we tell them stories of our first video games.

I LOVED Zelda LOL, one of my all-time favorites ... especially as after you beat the game you could start it again with a slightly harder different version of the original game (wish more video games had that 'bonus' version).

Yup, definitely 'old school' Nintendo here, of course - ANYthing beat Pong that was the 'it' game in '75/'76 =P

I never had Zelda, but we'd always go to my aunt who had it and play it.

Fun fun fun game!

I was more of the SNES generation, but I still cherish NES and it's happy memories as well.

Aawww I love Zelda! I have to admit
I'm a total fan of Zelda. My little
bro and I always play it =)

I never actually owned the game but a bunch of friends did so I would always play it over their houses. It frustrated me even there.
