    Games like Zelda?

    The Legend of Zelda is one of my favorite games on any console. I am wondering what games are most like it on NES, SNES, etc. First, I would be interested in those games that are already available on the VC, but I am also interested in knowing what to "look for" in the future as far as VC games go.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I would say metroid for NES actually

    1. upgradeable gear
    2. adventure style gameplay (side scrolling = zelda 2)
    3. must utilize map and revisit areas

    Thank you! And I do mean anything other than the Zelda series, which I have played all of. That being said, I liked the first Zelda the most. So, I appreciate the Metroid suggestion. I've never played that. I also like your breakdown of how it is similar. It's hard to put into a list what it is that makes it a "special" game.

    EARTHBOUND , SECRET OF MANA, CHRONO TRIGGER
    I think all three of these VC titles are a must-buy. Check them out to see if they 're your style. Earthbound and Chrono Trigger are turned based fighting. They're not that similar, but...they share in common their brilliance?

    Secret of Mana is probably most like Zelda 1, fighting with a sword and not turned based.

    Currently, I can't think of any zelda like titles on the VC.

    But, in the future look for these other ones:
    Willow for the NES is zelda-like. It has it's ghetto moments though.

    Also a turbo graphix game I think it's called Neutopia or something. That game was super cool. Anyone remember that game? Let me know if I got the title right.

    And if you have a ps1/2 try Alundra. It's very zelda like and fun.

    Landstalker for the Mega Drive was apparently quite good. It'll probably end up on VC eventually.

    And I totally agree about Alundra for the PS1, that was top notch.



    I never add friend codes.

    I appreciate the responses from everyone. Keep them coming. There are never enough of these kinds of adventure-style games. I do have a PS, but I am hoping to only have the Wii set up in the future. Still, a suggestion never hurts. Thanks again!
