I first played this game in 1987 when my sister's friend had it. She always lent us her Nintendo, and Zelda was one of the titles. Her games at the time were, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Karnov, Metroid, Goonies 2, and of course, Zelda.
I was consumed by the Nes, and especially Zelda. The theme of the game, and concept was enough to entomb me in it's mystical wonder. To this date, Zelda 1 has always been my #1 video game of all time. Although newer Zelda games have enhanced graphics and sound, this title has remained the top due to it's pure beauty.
