Chances are, you've never played Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and frankly, you're much better off for it. That's because it's widely considered to be the worst Zelda title – and simply one of the worst games, period – of all time. Part of the reason you may not have heard of the game is that the console it was on was an obscure disaster.
The Philips CD-i was an early '90s CD player/gaming console hybrid with some laughable '90s internet capabilities. Think "you've got mail."
Both the system and the game were failures, which is a shame because The Wand of Gamelon is one of the few games in which Zelda is the protagonist. The Legend of Zelda series may feature some questionable logic at times, but this game is riddled with mind-boggling creative decisions. Here is all the insanely wacky stuff from Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon that you just have to see.
