I’ve always wanted to play Zelda ever since I was a kid and saw my friends who had a Nintendo playing. My best friend had a Sega and so that is what I wanted and I remained in the Sega camp all the way through Genesis. Since the ’90s I’ve not bought a console but thought it was time as my son was getting older and only had my old games which were played on an emulator on the computer. And so I bought Zelda on a whim thinking it might take me back to my childhood a bit.
I had always wanted to play Zelda ever since the the very first one came out in 1987.
First there was Atari, which I remember playing from my earliest memories. One of my favorite memories in fact was going over to my older neighbor Kevin Heinzenberger’s house and we played Joust together in his room on the top floor. I remember laughing historically as those nights rode around on birds trying not to get hit, they would go so fast! I laughed so hard tears came out of my eyes and I was very sad when it was time to go back home. That is a memory that is burned into my brain and I’ll never forget.
