The Legend of Zelda is a high-fantasy action-adventure video game series created by Japanese game designers Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. The series had been one of the staples of Nintendo line up of adventure games which gamers like myself had come to adore during out growing up years since the game first release: The Legend of Zelda on February 1986. The game incorporates elements of action, adventure and puzzle-solving games, not to mention crazy NPC chickens!
