Finally got a chance to jump into LoZ after months of having it around on the Nintendo classic!
I had the original gold cartridge and I remember this game coming out when I was ten or so. It changed video games for me. I started looking for similar games like Secret of Mana (Super Nintendo). It wasn’t quite roll playing, not a side scroller (except the Adventure of Link), and it certainly wasn’t sports. These games were fun and there was practical problem solving involved.
