Wikipedia says the original Zelda was released in 1986. Thats nearly 30 years ago :P. One could have played the first release in their 20's and be well into their 50's at this point.

"Old" is a term I'll not define for anyone, but considering anyone under 60 has at least a decent chance of playing the game, and considering that the average lifespan is about 80, there is a halfway decent chance that people who have lived out 75%+ of their lifespan have played at least 1 Zelda game.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

@ Curethan - HAHA!!!  I LOVE IT!!!  Just as the dwarves delved to deep, so did the Nonmen!  Hell is the hole dug too deep.  :)

BTW, should I mental-pronounce your name as cure-than or something like cure-a-thahn or something else?

That's real fancy!  Glad you told me.  Would not have figured that one on mine own.

Technically, you're doing my work for me as I obviously was unclear before. I meant that people seem to think the average age here is much lower than it actually seems to me.

When I'm on a plane trip, my favorite time killing activity is using my DS to play the original legend of zelda and seeing if I can beat the game before we land.

I do this on my laptop but get really frustrated in the rooms full of those blue/armored/pig dudes.

My daughter got me hooked to Ocarina of Time on her 3ds.  Back in Dodongo's Cavern...

those are darknuts. hit them from the side.  Watch a speed run for good technique.  Never go at them head on.

Ah, well if that was your point it was not a very good one Madness. Since Zelda has released a new title every few years since the 80's, its a poor indicator of average age :P.

Sejenus leaving the world at Kyudea.  Moenghus leaving the world at Kyudea.  Wonder if Kellhus is going to warp back to Kyudea to exit the world?  Will find old Cnaiur living in the dark with skin spy Serwe, a domestic life of eating rats in the gloom, wailing around his prize, his precious prize.  I'm really interested if the skin spies were 'given' to Cnaiur in some kind of permanent way.  If Serwe lived, she could feed and take care of Cnaiur in the dark.

I think the Skin Spies were more Cnaiur's handlers than his possessions. Aurang was probably completely aware that Cnaiur was utterly mad after the incident where he psychically sends his identity to Cnaiur, complete with mass rape and burning cities, and Cnaiur's response is to take another bite of the chicken he was eating.
