STREAMS ► Every Thursday 9pm EST here on Youtube
ZELDA CLONES ►This is Part 1 of my look at games for the Nintendo Entertainment System that are similar in gameplay or design to The Legend of Zelda. Here I’ll be discussing what makes Legend of Zelda so iconic, and which NES games share qualities, take inspiration from, or are straight up ripping it off.

The introduction to the NES Clones series can be found here: https://youtu.be/tSLc3Te6bXA

► If you’re looking to get into retro reviewing or streaming, here’s some of the equipment I used for both or either. My current setup is what I love now, but honestly I’d say start out with the cheap stuff and get a feel for everything before throwing down a ton of cash on gear you may or may not need.

After years of focusing on the best games for the NES, I decided to change gears and focus on lesser known cartridges that have, for one reason or another, generally escaped the public discussion and general nostalgia. This series highlights many of the relatively unknown, obscure, and unloved titles in the Nintendo Entertainment System’s library. Some of these games are at best mediocre. Many are painfully bad, some of the worst NES games around. Most are hilarious for all the wrong reasons! Occasionally, OCCASIONALLY, a handful of them are actually good, borderline hidden gems.

While you won’t find any of these on the NES Classic, some of these titles have managed to make their way onto the Nintendo Switch, so if you don’t have an original Nintendo console or ROMs escape you ethically or technologically, there are several ways to play them.

Want more? Me too! Until then, lots of other articles where the pictures don’t move and words have to be read can be found on my website: https://ift.tt/jylAfo3
