| Despite how well known this game is, I played it seriously for the first time very recently. Although I like adventure games, there are many that I don't have the patience or attention span for, and Zelda is the type of game that I usually lose interest in quickly. However I was kept engaged in Zelda basically by the lack of direction. Not only was I free to explore, but the only way I could succeed was by doing so, even if it meant often going the wrong way or doing the wrong thing. I found this more engaging than many newer adventure games because it removed the feeling of waiting for the mission to be over, and knowing how far you were in the game.
