The allure of classic games still continues to grow stronger with every passing generation to the next. And no I'm not talking about a new copy of the game. Each generation likes the ORIGINAL version of the classic game in question. Such as Zelda, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Mario Brothers, and more.
No the graphics are not amazing for all you that question that before you buy a game. However, they are harder then a lot of current games, and there is NO LAG. They don't have to put a million things going on at one time to pull you in. It happens on its own. There are no cheat codes, though you can get a whistle in level 3 of Mario if you know the trick and in the castle.
Captivating is what Zelda has done from day one. The Legend of Zelda has grown over the years coming out with multiple games for the multiple Nintendo systems. However I find that everyone still enjoys the Original Zelda. There was no map to find that you could look and see where you was going. There was no sign or clue to what castle was what until you were in it. You had to find special things on your own and had to explore all the rooms in order to get to the next level. And IT WAS HARD!!! Simple yet you can play for hours.
Enjoy as the age of Video Games advance and alter their designs but don't forget what started it all and just how amazing it was to sit for hours in front of the tv and play them. Because to some of us that tend to spend most of our lives with a controller in our hands.... these classics continue to have the same amazing and alluring fascination from the day they hit the shelves.
