The Legend of Zelda Turns 25 in North America

Today, August 30, 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the original Legend of Zelda being released on the NES in North America. The Legend of Zelda was released in a very unique manner. Normally, officially licensed NES games would have gray cartridges. However, The Legend of Zelda came in a golden cartridge.  The Legend of Zelda was very successful, selling 2 million copies in less than a year in the US alone. The series is often given the distinction of containing some of the greatest games of all time. These games include(but are certainly not limited to Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past and the original Legend of Zelda.)
