When "The Legend of Zelda" was first released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987, elf hero Link, princess Zelda, and pig-beast Ganon quickly became video game legends. Nintendo would release a wide variety of "Zelda" games in the decades to come, and whether Link soared the skies on a giant bird, time traveled with an ocarina, or transformed into a wolf, players were thrilled to head out on another epic adventure. Since there are so many wildly different games in the series, even hardcore "Zelda" fans should research each new game to learn about its genre, features, and core gameplay before buying.
