Zelda Voted #1

It has inspired legions of fans and generated hundreds of millions of dollars for its creators, and according to a panel of experts, the "Legend of Zelda" video game series now ranks as the best of all time.

A panel of writers from Entertainment Weekly and gaming experts from G4, the cable TV games channel, have voted the "Zelda" series, from Japan's Nintendo Co. Ltd.

The list, which appears in the new Entertainment Weekly and will be broken down in a series of nightly specials the week of May 5 on G4, encompasses all genres of games and all systems, from classic arcade machines to today's game consoles.

Second on the list was the 1993 PC game "Doom," from id Software, widely hailed as a revolution in PC gaming both for its graphics and its often-gory violence. Rounding out the top five were the classic puzzle game "Tetris," the criminal adventure games "Grand Theft Auto III" and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" from Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and "Madden NFL 2003" from Electronic Arts Inc.
