Legend of Zelda: "Showing Its Age"
Posted: Friday February 21st, 2014 by

I watched a video of the original Legend of Zelda being played on the Oculus Rift today. Watching someone playing the iconic top-down game converted into a first person, 3D environment is cool, but it serves to remind me how old the game is. Today (Feb. 21st) is the game's 28th anniversary.

Now here's the part where I suffer a sword slash to my nerd cred. I never finished the original. I loved the game. Played it a ton. And where I did get to the end, I never beat Ganondorf. I only ever tried twice. My patience waned, and I moved on to Final Fantasy. Except for a brief, unsatisfying run-in with 'the Adventure of Link', I didn't play another Zelda game until Minish Cap. I didn't finish that one either. Someone stole it before I had the chance. **grumbles**

At any rate the 3D port of Legend of Zelda (if you're lucky enough to own an Oculus Rift) is currently in beta and is scheduled for release next month. Here's a link to the video I watched: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gzXHUyfdyM. Warning: The overall quality of the video is miserable due to sound balance and poor outro editing.)
