I don't normally find hidden treasures on your typical game review
website these days. It's a rare occasion when the content stands
out above and beyond your typical screenshot description blurb
about a game or series.
Like all good treasures, I stumbled across this first on YouTube
when I was looking at Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess trailers.
After watching a few Metroid episodes tho I knew this was too
good to not share. Like most gamers, I have a deep appreciation
for Metroid and Zelda series, even before watching these. These
videos definitely helped fill in some blanks about timelines and
stories, I think you'll enjoy it as well.
A website called gametrailers.com
did video retrospectives on two of my favorite nintendo series,
Zelda and Metroid. These retrospectives cover the
entire scope of the series to date, NES 8-bit, SNES 16-bit,
Gameboy Advance etc. Being an author of one or
two nintendo console
emulators I have a special place in my heart for these particular
Each retrospective is broken up into multiple parts, its not a quick
song and dance of each series at all. These retrospectives tell the
complete story of the series, linking games together. Additionally
they go pretty deep into what made each game unique in the
market at the time, highlighting specific features in each game
that resulted in permanent changes to the entire series. It's kind of
rare to find retro content that is this well put together, so I thought I
would post a blog about it. I highly recommend watching these!
The Legend of Zelda Retrospective
After you watch it, I'd be curious to hear what you might of learned from it, what you liked, didn't like, etc. If nothing else this is an easy way to walk down memory lane with some games many cherish as the best made.
