ya zelda kicks ass. first i played was a the adventures of link, could never beat it. Ocarina of time was and is my favourite game. I actaully played through, and finally beat after seventeen years a link to the past last summer. it was to say the least, awsome. My brother could also never beat it when we were younger, and it wasnt until seventeen years later, that the stupid eagle thing he could never beat the stupid bird was the second last boss... it was pretty daming for the both of us hahahaa
Danny takes a look at 26 years of collecting rupees and saving princesses in this history of the Zelda series.
There are certain games that seem so integral to gaming that to not play them is sort of embarrassing; one such game is Zelda. Thanks to my household never owning a Nintendo system growing up, it wasn't until I got Wind Waker for my GameCube that I finally understood what the game really was.
Those adventures on the high seas convinced me to buy Twilight Princess alongside my launch day Wii, but for some reason I never felt compelled to play any of the older games. To an outsider, Zelda can look like the exact same game repackaged with some updated graphics and a new control scheme. And in many ways that's exactly what it is, but the experience is one worth repeating.
Zelda games are adventures packed full of interesting characters, engaging combat, and vast explorable worlds, where each game weaves a new story into a connective narrative spanning the very fabric of time and space.

also, my finest moment in childhood zelda history? The 1st time i beat the water temple in ocarina of time. Glorious. And playing the game again several years later to learn about the great goron sword that doesn't break and the creepy masks to be worn. And oh yeah i used to be terrified of the zombies that screamed and stunned you. i would run so fast through the castle village as an adult.... and nighttime in the field was terrifying. Man that game was awesome.
Wait wait wait. After Zelda 64, the Child timeline is the one that spawned the more mature Twighlight Princess, and the Adult timeline is the one that spawned the cell-shaded kid? Great Scott!
Mr. Miyamoto still has that same smile after 25 years. My mom was right, keep making and it will stick. His stuck in a contagious smile.
Zelda tops even some of the best series, Always re-inventing and always setting that bar high.
Why do people even play crap like CoD?
Danny got it right.
I night be a reiteration over and over again but The Legend of Zelda rally do give you what you want, "A boy on an aventure".
Point and click games huh.... Isnt there already an episode on call of duty?
a guide for one of the developers would be awesome.. like the one on id
specially bioware or ubisoft wud be great
Love the old bluffer's guides and the new vids as well. Disappointed I can't download low-res videos of the new shows to watch on my iPod
I would love to see a 3ds remake of a link to the past. Don't really change the graphics, just make it all pop out. Top down 3d view would be sweet
Was a good episode, love Zelda to bits... I think a Dragon Quest episode could be good due to the lifespan

@Chuubby What tipped you off? Was it the fact that he admitted straight off he didn't know much about Zelda, or the way this series is designed to give a crash course in gaming dynasties to people who aren't already familiar with them? Thank you for your input.
Danny ... my love do an episode about the star trek game evolution
hundreds of star trek games and shows and movies await your commentary powers....:P
I still don't think there's anything better than Majora's Mask.
The game world was the darkest, most exciting, most mysterious, most intriguing, saddest/most tragic, richest game world ever created.
Wind Waker was not only my first Zelda game, but my first game entirely. That game is the reason for me loving games so much, and it remains one of my favorite games of all time.
Zelda on NES was my all time favorite game. I remember my mom and I playing and drawing maps and plotting all our secrets found, from using the candle on trees to bombing every wall in the overworld and underworld! Such awesome nostalgia!
Gotta say i didnt like your review. To be quite frank it pissed me off. It was just one giant joke to you up until about the end. Also, I didn't like your stupid jokes. So do YOURSELF a favor and go play the previous games Danny. THEN, come back and do another review
@mobones87 He did the same thing with Final Fantasy. When I wrote my distaste for his humor AND his ignorance to the series, gamespot members lynched me.
@mobones87 I don't think this is a review...it's more a brief history of the series. Danny usually brings some irreverant humor to all of the videos of his that I've seen so it should be no surprise that he brings the same here. I have never nor will I ever play a Zelda game but I still watched and enjoyed the episode and the impression I came away with is that Danny is being complimentary of what the Zelda franchise has accomplished.
Very funny and great. I remember playing Ocarina of Time and it was the first emotional experience I had in a game.
Man, Nintendo really loves kidnapping princesses, I'm sure they'll one day reveal that Samus from Metroid is a princess that got kidnapped at some point but escaped.
AMazing review Danny- !!!
Congrats that was a big one! I think you touched ont he Music but that for me was a huge part. I can hear the sound of Spirit temple music and shudder- the themes in Ocarina of time are ... well... timeless!
I grew up with Zelda 1 and 2, but sadly my parents were too tight to buy me a Snes so i have not played Link to the past yet. But I will eventually when I got time
I played A Link To Past when I barely knew English. To this day it's one of the best games I ever played!
I grew up playing A link to the past on the SNES and I loved it, played a bit of ocarina of time on gamecube (i think) but will pick it up for 3DS eventually
