A Link to the Past - SNES, 1991

Most of you weren't even born yet! Imagine that! It makes me feel physically ill! A Link to the Past brought to the table now commonplace elements, specifically the use of multi-level dungeons. It's available now on the Virtual Console.

New stuff to check out

oh and was that Mario without his hat I spotted in Link's Awakening?

I can't WAIT for the new Zelda to come out *adds another game to the wish list*

Have you got it yet? It's such a fantastic game and the very first Zelda game I have ever played on, now I'm tempted to get the old ones...

I could just leave the post at that, and my point would have been made. Now, I know that VG don't do massive features, but ... honestly? You'd have been better off writing nothing.

That is a low point in the otherwise top quality writing on this site.

Also, no love for Gamecube 4 Swords Adventures? I know, nobody (except me and Endless) ever played it, but OMG it was hilarious stuff! That one game would be worth buying a Cube and 4 GBA's for, even if you then had to go and hire 3 people to play with.

Need to give Oracle of Ages/Seasons another go. Just a pity no Zelda game has yet, IMO, lived up to Links Awakening...

Majoras Mask is by far my favorite, but I have the fondest memories of Link's Awakening.

Talk about a lack of detail. Zelda is amazing and deserves far more time to be given to it than this.

Would have liked a bit more detail, even if it's just for a select few; specifically Majora's Mask. I'm very disappointed that nobody has commented on this in 3 hours :(

1up did a really great compilation of stuff here including 25 song covers, videos and general history. Well worth a look for nutters like me, at least.

Majora's Mask is practically a cult favourite now, primarily among those who love the series and want it to get recognition in the shadow of its predecessor, Ocarina of Time. Unfortunately, it's probably news to some people that Majora's Mask used a 3 day cycle, at the end of which the moon crashes into Termina. You must go back in time to the first day - usually when the remarkably unsettling music draws in - but there's some persistence across time, so all is not lost. It's an incredibly interesting game, and few games have even attempted it since, let alone get anywhere near realising such terror.

And people whine about Wind Waker's unorthodox structure and pacing, but that game is about doing things at your own pace, not speeding through it and ignoring all the things which make it unique. I only wish that I could leave the boat sailing safely for 3 minutes while I make a cup of Tea instead of having to worry about sharks or whatever.

Can't wait for Skyward Sword... and Ocarina 3D... I might go play Majora's Mask now =\

[edit] Here's that creepy Majora's Mask music: YouTube Video
And yeh, if none of you like Zelda, just don't do the feature. It deserves much better than this, and it's no wonder people don't take Nintendo games seriously these days...

Nice feature, I think I might pick up Twilight Princess for my Wii.

By the way, I think you mean February 21, not January :).
