The Legend of Zelda (1987)

User Rating: 8 | The Legend of Zelda NES

8.6. People still play this template-setting adventure because it holds up to this day. Few '80s and possibly '90s games stand a chance against its dated but enduring charm. In fact, it even holds its own quite capably against far more recent installments in the LoZ series despite Link having an extremely limited equippable inventory (only a mere 8 possible items to assign to the B button here). I'll be likely returning to it again this very year.
