Sitting on an airplane I received a text message from a friend with a mysterious YouTube link. Sometimes I wait before clicking on things he sends me because they are not always appropriate in certain audiences...but I clicked this one anyways. It was a link to a video of someone playing a remixed version of the original Legend of Zelda game for NES (ca. 1987). This version has been designed for play with a VR headset like Oculus. Watching this makes me want to play and experience this virtual reality. And I also wonder if its the familiarity of the setting that makes me curious - a way to relive something from my childhood in a different way - one that wasn't possible before. Now don't get me wrong, I still enjoy hooking up my Nintendo and playing these old games, but this is just cool to me. The guy in the video does not seem to have played the original version of the game.
