Now don't get me wrong on this statement. I really, literally, fell in love with Link when I started playing MM. !!PLEASE DO NOT GET ME WRONG ON THIS NEXT SENTENCE!! For some reason, I really liked the way Link jumped. His movements were so graceful and the way he landed. It was really moving. (AGAIN, DON'T GET ME WRONG! I wasn't looking up his tunic or anything like that! Gross!!!!!!!) Especially when I started drawing him, I really found out how beautiful Link really is. This may sound stupid since he's just a videogame character (or maybe he isn't!), but Link is what makes me want to draw. Thank you for reading. (Don't get the wrong idea!!!!!!!!)
The moment I became interested in the Zelda series was when I played the gameboy version of Legend of Zelda. I played it night and day because I thought the storyline was so cool and how everything looked. The moment I became a fan was when I got Ocarina of Time and I 1st played. I found the game fascinating because I loved everything about it. So from then on I had to get every Zelda game. Plus, the replay value for the games are a 10.
I remember my cousin having the original game when I was a kid (it's probably collecting dust along with the Nintendo in my aunt's basement now). I was to little to understand the concept of the game.
Then, many years later, I find that my Grandpa had ALttP within his small collection of Super Nintendo games (which consisted of Monopoly, Tetris, and some various golfing games). I played it and I really liked it. I just wanted to play it until my fingers were too tired to push the buttons! Eventually, I ended up getting the game for Christmas, my very first Zelda game and my first "re-gifted" present.
But I don't think I really LOVED the Zelda games until the Wind Waker. When Nintendo dropped the price of the Game Cube to just under $100 my Mom decided that we should get one. At this time my opinion of the Wind Waker was mixed. I kept hearing good things about it, but I didn't know if what they were saying was overrated. Plus--like a lot of other people who had opinions before they played the game--I thought the beautiful cel-shaded graphics seemed to make the game look childish. But I decided to buy the game because..."Hey, it could be a good game". I think around the time Tetra put Link into a barrel and catapulted him to the fortress I had fallen in love with Zelda.

One day I was really bored, so I took my brothers GBC and placed the Zelda Link's Awakening cartridge in. I began playing Zelda but it seemed extremely boring at the beginning. However, I got really stuck on the second dungeon, therefore I left the game inert for two months. The moment I completed it was the 'tuning point' Now I love Zelda games having completed Zelda Link's Awakening, Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, A Link to the Past, Minish Cap and Majora's Mask
It was when I was 8 years old I think, I got OoT as a birthday present. I had never heard of Zelda before and gave it a try. The opening cut-scene was incredible, but the glorious moment was when I met Zelda. I became addicted, I started to collect the games one by one, and I'm almost done...
I remember i went to my friend's house to play some SNES. He had purchased ALLTP, a game i had never heard of. He had to go to somethin, so i put the game in and started playin it. I thought to myself, "THIS GAME IS AWESOME!" I secretly took it home and played it nonstop. After i beat this game, i was still hungry for more, so i went on to beat many zelda games, including LoZ, Oot, LA, MM, and WW. I'm not really into the gameboy franchise, i only have LA because someone gave it to me, it was a good game, but I never bought any of the other gameboy games.
Hmm. I'd say for me it's when we got ALttP for the SNES. Yeah, I was (*coughamcough*) a huge fan of Zelda II for the NES, but the one that really got me hooked was the SNES title. Heh. It's the same way with Metroid to be honest. I dunno what it was about the SNES, but there was something almost alluring to the games that made ya wanna go backward and play the older ones.
The end of OOt made me love Zelda. I had never even played the game when i beat it and saw the ending...pretty darn cool. this caused me to play the game from beginning to end and to go back and play all the other zelda games.
