String comment = "I constantly see threads where people shit on this game, and I have no idea why. To me, this is the pinnacle of a real adventure. It represents everything that this genre should be -- mysterious, cryptic, difficult, but never unfair. You are dropped into a world and you have only your own intuition to guide you. There's nothing telling you where to go, because there's no "right" way, you choose your own method for progression. That is the brilliance of Zelda 1, and it's something that no other game in this series has managed to capture. Outside of playing it a few times on my brother's NES as a kid, I didn't get a chance to properly appreciate this game until recently, and I still recognize how fantastic it is.
When I play something like Ocarina, it feela so mundane and boring. It was fun as a kid when you retarded and just had fun dicking around, but as an adultz the game feels like a joke. The world is small and claustrophobic, you never have any sense of tension or danger, you never have to ration your supplies and make smart use of resources, you never have to wonder where to go, you never even experience the thrill of finding something mysterious or cool because the only thing you ever find are fucking rupees that do next to nothing. I mean damn, is this what people really consoder good game design? I just don't get it. Playing Zelda 1 always feels freah because of the limitless possibilities for how to progress, the hundreds of secrets, and the tense combat.
The game isn't perfect, but it's easily the best adventure game ever made, and the only one in the Zelda series to adequately capture the essence of what it means to go on a long quest in a dangerous medieval world.";
