That game will be classic forever! Some think it's the best game ever made. I don't know about that, but it's definitely up there in my book.

That is a pretty amazing accomplishment and it's still one of the greatest games of all time. Hard to believe it's already 12 years old.

How does he know it wasn't somebody else in the room doing it for him? If nothing else, I'll bet he used cheat codes.

I hardly believe it was the best game in the history of games, let alone the best game the franchise has produced. Not only that but with all that has been going on with gaming around the time of the article, I don't see a point to it or the 12 yr old game.

I have played just about every single game in the series with the exception of a couple obscure titles on Phillips CD-i and the newest one for DS, and I personally think Ocarina of Time is the best in the series with a "Link to the Past" for SNES coming in a close second. That's just my opinion.

Still, the kid is friggin blind, cut him some slack. Most people can't even walk from their bed to their bathroom in the dark, let alone fathom actually having to live as a blind person. That is a hard game for anybody to beat, and he deserves a tip of the cap for having the heart to keep working hard to accomplish his goal, even if it is just a video game.

I think Link to the Past was by far the best in the series, Second I would have to say is the original Zelda, without it there would be no Zelda games, plus back in the NEs days it was one of its best titles alongside the marioes and original FF. Third would be the Twilight PRincess for the Wii

I agree with your point about the original Zelda, but my opinion on OOT, and a lot of others too, is really based on the actual gameplay. We wouldn't have goten Twilight Princess without OOT, so that kinda goes both ways. It's hard to knock any of the Zelda games, but I just always liked OOT best.

Check out this video from the Angry Video Game Nerd where he explains the timeline of the Zelda games, it's hilarious.

lol no way!! it is so underrated you cant judge it by the graphics just the gameplay which is up there with all the others. When it first came out I was really pissed and refused to play it but when I finally did I was like "Wow this is still really fun". I couldnt choose a favorite zelda game they are all incredibly fun including the gameboy ones like oracle of ages and seasons. The three most important games to the series though would be the very first one, link to the past, and OOT.

Everything bout Wind Waker was lame, The worst was the hour boat rides everywhere and all the worthless whirlpools to use the crane on, and for what a few rubys? The boss battles were bout as dumbed down and easy as could be, and yeah the graphics were a shame lol.

Writing an article bout a 12 yr old game is lame, what next, 7 yr old beats Kid Icarus ?

My favorite is Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. I love the side-scrolling style!

That game is great, but at the time it really let Zelda fans down. Personally, I love it. :)

I gotta say, I didn't dig Windwaker too much.

The gameplay was fine, but I just didn't like the direction they took the story, and the look of the characters was a bit...lame....:sad:

But I still played it and beat it, because I'm a nerd. :laugh:

Yeah, I think for the hardcore Zelda gamers, it was a letdown. For gamers in general, it was a win, but I see why they didn't go back to that style.

Well, of the Zelda games that I've actually played all the way through (in chronological order):

Link to the Past (SNES)
Link's Awakening (Gameboy)
Ocarina of Time (N64)
Majora's Mask (N64)
Wind Waker (Gamecube)
Twilight Princess (Gamecube)

The only ones that I have played through, from beginning to end, multiple times are:

Link to the Past
Ocarina of Time
Wind Waker

So those would be my top three favorite Zelda games, with Wind Waker nudging out the rest for the top spot right now.

However, I'm hoping that they take a cue from the new Super Mario Brothers and take Zelda back to it's 2D roots for the next Wii version.
