    Just a note- Nintendo had NOTHING to do with these games.

    Gah. I'm afraid to click the link. I still want to pretend those games never existed :p

    Well, they had SOMETHING to do with them. I'm sure they got paid licensing fees, for example. It's not like anyone can make a Zelda game and sell it without at least some sort of agreement with Nintendo. :p

    These are some particularly horrid games, though.

    Haha, I know! The title was suppose to read "Zelda minus Nintendo equals funny!" but my first use of the hyphen kind of ruined that...

    Ok as probably the only person here who can say my parents bought me a Philips CDI for xmas. God it was awful. The Zelda games weren't THAT bad compared to everything else on the system. Gfx were pretty nice for the time....

    What am i saying ? It was **** :)

    I don't remember all the details, but I believe Nintendo didn't receive fees and had nothing to do with their production. Nintendo and Phillips had agreed to make a cd based system together (or a cd addition to SNES), but Nintendo instead decided to go with N64. Phillips sued, having invested some money, and won the rights to make some Zelda games for their system, the cdi. Like I said, I'm sketchy on the details (very sketchy), but that was the basic proceedings.

    It was a licensing mistake- when they worked with Phillips on the CDi it turned out that Phillips got the rights to make a few games with Nintendo's characters (Nintendo wasn't that happy IIRC), including the Zelda CDI games and Hotel Mario.

    Wizard: "It is written that Link is the only one that can defeat Ganon"

    Link: "Great I'll get my stuff"

    WTF? Did that wizard write that up like 5 minutes before he meets the king!?

    Not to mention.

    "NOT THE PIT! IT BUUUUUUUURNS"

    BWA HA HA HA HA

    They were if you consider it was 90-91

    Up against the Snes & Megadrive. They were pretty sweet.

    Remember seeing a cartoon animated cut scene mid game was really class at the time...

    In retrospect the games sucked major ass generally but all my friends were jealous nether the less..
