> Nintendo Girls

Before there was the lovely Alyx or the voluptuous Lara Croft, there were Nintendo girls - ladies such as Zelda, Peach, and Samus.

Here's a great tribute to those wonderful 8-bit ladies that will always have a very special place in our hearts.

Bonus: Fans of 'Let's Plays' might recognize the voices of Simon (of Yogscast) and Jessie Cox (of OMFGcata).

P.S. Peach is alright, she beat some ass in Smash Bros, but was hardly ever in that damn castle. Zelda is of course the aspiration of so many of our affections.. but it was really always about Link, amirite? Even without these worthy contenders - P and Z are near and dear to my heart - I've always known one thing, ever since I was a young boy...

I'm a Samus man.
