Right about now, I'm blogging from my school computer lab, when i'm SUPPOSED to be doing the world's worst assignment. Copying and pasting computer terms from a website. http://tekmom.com/buzzwords/. Whoever wrote this has no life and is tormenting a class full of innocent children. You know, this is kinda like checking you email at the office in 2001. I feel like an illegal hacker or something, and when she notices I'm on Blogger, i'm in big doody. But she hasn't noticed yet, so i'm going to post in three...two...

This year marks the 25th anniversary of what could possibly be the best video game series of all time. (Yes, I still love Scribblenauts, but this seriously shaped my childhood.) There may be no better concept than recieving a reliable wooden sword from a random old man, and setting out to save a princess from an evil pig monster who has scattered a magical triangle into eight pieces across the land and... (But I digress) The Legend of Zelda (NES) rose quickly to fame because it was a "do whatever you want and eventually you'll find something cool" game. It was quickly devoured by the public and loved by all. Zelda would then see a sequel, AND a television miniseries. (That unfortunately didn't last long at all.) But it wasn't until 1998, that Zelda would change the face of gaming forever. With the release of Ocarina of Time (N64) Zelda struck gold and created one of the best video games in history. (EAT IT COD!) With an incredible sequel (Majora's Mask n64) and super publicity, Zelda was making history! To this day I find it sad that most people don't appreciate or go over A Link To The Past, (SNES) it being the inspiration and predecessor of Ocarina. From there, Zelda was an unstoppable train of great games. Wind Waker, (GameCube) Minish Cap, (GameBoy) and Twilight Princess. (Wii) Nowadays, Zelda is still a prominant force in the gaming world. However, Zelda's last two releases for the DS were not recieved well by the public. (Including me!) BUT! There are two very good Zelda games coming out soon that I would advise ANYONE buy. One, Skyward Sword (Wii) will fully utilize the Wii's WiiMotion Plus. The other (Drumroll please.) is a remake of Ocarina of Time exclusive to the 3DS! So Zelda fans let out a triumphant cheer! And celebrate 25 years of Zelda!
