In case you somehow didn't notice, we've spent the past week celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda. Throughout the week we've looked back on the past three decades, ranked the top 10 games, reminisced about the evolution of our hero in green, talked about the 10 most memorable characters from the games, and today we looked at the influence the franchise has had on the industry as a whole. With a gallery to myself, of course I was going to make it a Zelda-themed one! So without further delay, here are my 8 favorite weapons from The Legend of Zelda, in no particular order - excluding the Master Sword, because that's a given.
Did we miss your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
Making its first appearance in A Link to the Past, the Hookshot has become a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda, and it's ridiculously useful. You can use the Hookshot for travel - if you shoot something and the Hookshot latches onto it, Link is propelled forward to that location. Maybe an enemy is too far away and your legs are tired? No worries! Hookshot that jerk and he'll come to YOU. You can use it to kill small enemies and stun bigger ones.
