Legend of Zelda

Ahh, Legend of Zelda. I could go on and on about the series.

The Legend of Zelda games started with the NES and has since found itself on almost every Nintendo system since. They're a mix of action and adventure games. The hero, Link, usually has to save the land of Hyrule from the evil reign of Ganondorf who has harnessed the power of the Triforce for evil. In addition the princess Zelda usually gets dragged into the picture, making the story all the more timeless.

Your main weapon in the games is your sword and shield. Throughout the game you pick up other weapons such as the bow and arrows, boomerang and bombs. You can also pick up better armor, new shields, a better sword, and more hearts (health). There is a good balance between the action of battle and puzzles from room to room. All of the games are very free, letting you visit any area you've visited before and even rewarding you by leaving content that you can't find unless you come back with more abilities.

In addition, the game stays true to its roots, with every story line giving you the same classic feel of the original while making use of the newest graphics and new items and places. Its soundtrack has also stayed true through the years and most of the classic medleys are in every game.

Overall the games are humorous, challenging, and fun and it doesn't look like the series will end anytime soon.
