In the test version of the game, the player would start out with a sword. However, this version met with a lot of complaints about the game being too difficult and confusing. Director Shigeru Miyamoto
then made the bold move of making the game even more difficult (like having to look for a sword first). His expectation was that this would prompt players to share their experiences with their friends in order to solve their problems, and create some kind of game community. His prediction proved correct, and the Zelda game community is still a thriving one almost 30 years later. See more
In one of the dungeons, you will receive a hint that the enemy Pols Voice dislikes noise - yet blowing the whistle does nothing to hurt the enemy. The Famicom (the original Japanese version of the NES) had a microphone, and the player could make noise in it to kill these enemies. As the American NES aborted this feature, this was not possible. Nintendo went ahead and translated this hint verbatim, but because of the lack of a microphone in the American NES, it no longer made any sense and was often misinterpreted. See more
