Gamers, what is it for you that makes a game great? Is it the plot or storyline? The visuals? Characters? Great games undoubtedly need a bit of all of the above, but the music is especially important, since it will stick with you even when you switch off the console or finish the game entirely.

Some songs are beautifully moving, while others are unbeatably catchy, a good example of which would be the music from the Legend of Zelda games. So, of course, what could be better than a medley of all the best Zelda tunes? What about a mind-blowingly crazy one done on the piano?

This amazing medley was posted by budding musician Kurt Hugo Schneider, and was arranged by his obviously equally-talented roommate Andy.

Kurt was born and raised on the east coast of the United States, and first became interested in music in his theatre group in high school. He now lives in Los Angeles and composes, produces, directs, and performs in his own music and YouTube videos.

If you’re dexterous (and brave) enough to give this wonderful piece a try, you can download the sheet music for this and other songs at Kurt’s website here.

While we really don’t know how anyone can not be a fan of Zelda, if the games aren’t quite up your alley, Kurt has quite a variety of videos displaying his unique musical talents, so be sure to check them out too!
