The first time i ever completed a Zelda game Was Twilight Princes. I didnt play a lot of games growing up, video games really didnt sink they're teeth into me until the age 16 or so. So i kind missed out. But man i tell you. there is just something about Zelda. The first time a picked up that Master Sword, just...ahhhh! I cant put my finger on it, but it just really gets to me (in a good way) maybe its the embodiment of all my childhood fantasy's in one game? But i enjoyed my time with TP. i wont dare lie and say i didnt tear up a little at the end.
What was your First Zelda game?
The Legend of Zelda. That game was utterly mind-blowing back in the day. Sure, it doesn't hold up nearly as well as the later games, but I will never forget running around the overworld trying to light every bush I could on fire to look for secret doors and loving every second of it.
I grew up in the Super Nintendo era, and never owned a Super Nintendo, only an old NES, and an original copy of The Legend of Zelda. I never knew what I was doing, despite having played it frequently.
The first in the series I actually undestood, and completed, was A Link to the Past. The Wind Fish has a place in my heart.
Ocarina of Time, I did tear up a little at the end. It might have been the story that got me, or it was probably the fact that I had become so invested in the world, the entire game. I played that game over the course of a year , and when I finally reached the conclusion it was heartbreaking.
Well i guess i should say i did play the first Zelda when i was like 5 or 6 but i can tell you i sure as hell never beat it. TP was the first time in my life i decided to give a crap about Zelda mainly because i bought a Wii at launch. and after that i got hooked and after finishing TP i went to gamestop and found a copy of Wind Waker which was fucking hard to find at the time.
I am not 100% sure. It was either A Link to the Past or Link's Awakening. I think Link's Awakening. Either way, I did not enjoy it. I have played (and by played I mean a couple of hours of) every game in the Zelda franchise, but it has never seemed to click with me. I think it is the only big name Nintendo franchise I don't have any fond memories of.
