The Legend of Zelda (NES) Turned 34 in NA Today

Hard to believe The Legend of Zelda came out 34 years ago today in North America (1987). Since that time the series has had a phenomenal run for a game Nintendo executives believed would never be popular in North America due to requiring patience.   Despite being 34 years old (In NA) the game is still fun due to great game design.  In a lot of ways The Legend of Zelda cleared the path for the many action RPGs that we may have never gotten if it weren't for the massive success this game had. I'd definitely list The Legend of Zelda as one of the ten most influential games in history.  If you live under a rock and have never played it,  I highly suggest coming out from under the rock playing this important and historical game. The game is so well known there is no need to describe it here.
