So when is Nintendo going to sue the person who made this?

Nice. I just found my old SP which has the original zelda still in it. My adult sausage fingers are too big to work the d pad properly though.

Take this. It is dangerous to go alone.

I have not played the original Legend of Zelda in a long, long time.

Almost four and a half years ago, in fact.  Just the 2nd Quest, though, as I had done the 1st Quest on that save file an even longer time ago.

/Breath of the Wild made me nostalgic.

I bought a wall-mounted key holder off Etsy that says that same thing.  Delivery guys and guests of that generation who notice it get a kick out of it.

I've used that line when handing people stuff. They never get the joke.

Every time I see one of these, I remember the guy who built all of the original Wizardry's ten levels entirely in custom Lexan clear transparent Legos on the outside and a complete color-correct design for each level. Then; he put in actual Chainmail minis for the wandering monsters, and chests/teleporters. Even made an elevator to Trebor's Grave.

Saw it ages ago on the /tg/ board of... That Place. Every other Lego custom map seems... Not as good.

/Did you know: The Hookshot, so famous to Zelda, is blatantly stolen from Zelda's "Superior" clone... Which was designed and developed by the lead programmer for TLoZ, whom Miyamoto fired when he DARED to ask for credit? Or, that the clone is actually closer to the original idea for Zelda, but the NES had too little RAM?

//Now, you do.
///How did it wind up 'stolen'? Gold Axe Warrior was so groundbreaking in the stagnant 'Zelda-clone' genre, he got his old job back and wound up... designing Link's Awakening. He got credit that time. His name Kushiro, he pops up in Sega/Nintendo titles a lot. Yes. It's always the same guy - he also came up with the "dodge" button in Virtua Fighter 3, using tilt controls in the Wii version of Super Monkey Ball, and coded the weapons in Smash Bros. Melee.

I can't find anything online to confirm anything you just wrote other than the existence of an obscure Zelda-clone named Golden Axe Warrior.  Golden Axe Warrior apparently released in April 1991 whereas Link to the Past which was the first appearance of the hookshot was released in November 1991.  Considering how instrumental the hookshot is throughout that game, I have a hard time believing that they ripped it off and completely remade the game to incorporate it in a few short months prior to sending the game to the factory for mass production.  Hell, Bionic Commando probably has a bigger claim to it being a ripoff than that Sega game.
