Last year, I wasn't really a gamer. But I founded my old NES back that I got when i was 27. I didn't do much with it then, but when I found it back I really enjoyed some of the games. My son (11) has a WII and a 3DS. We played some games together. And now, I am a huge of mario, metriod, kid icarus, megaman, and so on. I enjoy the NES games as much as the WII ones. A few days ago, I realized I had never in my life played a zelda game (!). I have enough consoles (NES, WII, 3DS) and money for all the games. I know nintendo made an official timeline and i think it would be fun to follow that. So I would begin with skyward sword till ocarina and then I choose one of the 3 split timelines to do first. But what could also be a good idea is to just play the games in order of their release dates. So what is better? Or do you have another suggestion?
