After 25 years, Zelda still has staying power

What’s the most-wanted game this holiday? According to Nielsen Research, it’s Modern Warfare 3. Not far behind, however, is Zelda: Skyward Sword at number six, the only game from the ’80s to make the top 20. In fact, it’s one of only two games from the ’80s or ’90s, the other being Madden Football. Not a big surprise, I know, but the staying power of Zelda still impresses me. What other kinds of media have that kind of staying power? Obviously the recently released Star Wars Blu-ray, but Link is part of an elite group, no?
