Through the magic of virtual reality and the Oculus Rift, we're going to start getting a first-person glimpse at the hell that some of our favorite protagonists have to endure.

This project called The Legend of ZeldaVR from developer Ubiquitron is currently in beta and only features the game's overworld and first dungeon. However, a full version is expected to come out in the next month or so for PC and Mac.
The idea of playing through the games of my childhood with a VR peripheral has me all sorts of giddy with excitement. If nothing else, I just want the pleasure of throwing jars at people in ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron. Pesky humans.
