The One That Pulled You In


Oct 4, 2010
I actually kind of liked Spirit Tracks, but the one that got me obsessed was Twilight Princess. It was one of the best Zelda games, and I love everything about it; the story, the dungeons, and the characters. If I wouldn't have asked for it for my birthday, I would probably not be here.

My first Zelda game was The Minish Cap, but the game that really made me a Zelda fan was the Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker. I was so sucked into the gameplay, and the story was amazing, after playing WW I was like "Yeah, I like the Legend of Zelda a lot!" So the WW really made my like it.

i played MC first, but the one that got me started was TP.

at first, i thought the zelda series was VERY overrated. i only thought this because when i played MC, i didn't like it very much, that, and the fact that people called it better than mario, which i thought was rediculous at the time. one day though, i rented TP only because a friend recommended it. i thought it was only ok, and i played until about halfway through the first dungeon, but i wasn't hooked by any means. a couple months later, i decided to rent it again. by the time i got to kakariko, i fell in love with the game, so i asked for it for my birthday that year and the rest is history...

The first Zelda I'd ever played was OoT and everything about it drew me in: the gameplay, the characters, the music, the story. I have to give credit to MM, my second Zelda, as well, since after playing that I got hooked.

Ever since I was younger, we always had Zelda games. Ocarina of Time was my brothers' most played game out of the tons of games we had for our N64.
I got out of the Zelda franchise, though, because I wasn't really into video games up until a few years ago.
It wasn't until Twilight Princess, of course, that /I/ got into the series. Now I'm a huge fan of all the games, but Twilight Princess remains my favorite.

Ocarina of Time. Played it at a friends and my Dad got it for me a few days/weeks later (hard to remember, time works weirdly when you're a kid). Best game ever!

The game that got me addicted to Zelda was porbably OoT. To be fair though the first Zelda game I ever completed was WW. In all honestly the first zelda game I ever played was the first one when I was really little, but I didn't even know what I was doing I was so young. So yah OoT got me addicted. I love that game.:D

Could have sworn I'd replied to this post before, but apparently not.

The very first game I played was the original Legend of Zelda. In a sense, it was the one that "pulled me in" because it interested me enough to seek out the others. For that matter, one reason I got a Wii was because of the virtual console and how it had some of the older Mario/Zelda games (I was looking for those specifically.)

The one that really pulled me into fandom, however, was Twilight Princess. I enjoyed the experience so much I wanted to seek out other Zelda fans, which also had the advantage of sparing my best friend's inbox, who kindly put up with updates to a game she wasn't even playing.

Definitely aLttP. I played it together with my best friend and it took us almost 2 years to complete 100%, from 1994 to 1996 (we were 6-9 years old back then). It was the first game that I was so addicted to that I often played until late at night, maybe 3am, which was extremely late by kid standards :). But it wasn't until 2007 that I played OoT and MM, those two really pulled me in!
