12 Days of Wii U: Happiest Nintendo moments
With our Wii U Christmas special off to a shaky start (see my ZombiU review here), I thought it would be fun to chat about some of the happier memories I have for the Nintendo brand. Think back over the years from the NES to Wii, what are your favourite moments?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
My favourite Nintendo memory is when I got my hands on a friend’s Nintendo 64 for the first time. Sure he may have only had The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but that was enough. I had it for an entire weekend and I was determined to finish it. I played almost solidly for 48 hours and even though I didn’t finish it I was so happy with everything the game had to offer.
I remember a bunch of friends and I bandied our dollars together and rented out a SNES back in the day. Our goal was to finish all off the Final Fight series in two days. After hours of controller swapping, blisters and a ton of junk food we walked away victorious. Good times.
OK people, you’re up, what are some of the fondest Nintendo memories you have?
