"The Legend of Zelda" has long been a staple franchise for Nintendo. It dates back to the NES in the 80s, and it’s been incredibly popular ever since. However, it’s firmly stayed on Nintendo consoles, and considering it’s one of the company’s biggest IPs, it’s easy to see why. However, for anyone without a Nintendo console, playing the games just isn’t an option.

Over the years, there have been a ton of "Zelda" clones, like "Genshin Impact" and Ubisoft’s "Immortals Fenyx Rising," which caused an uproar after being announced. Developers have sought to see the same success as the Nintendo series for a while now, which makes sense when you realize that "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" is the only game to get a 99 score on Metacritic.

"Ocarina of Time" came out in 1998, and PlayStation 1 fans weren’t able to experience the masterpiece. However, there was a PS1 "Zelda"-like game that was a decent substitute that you’ve probably never played.
