    Well to start off I did not buy this game on launch day, I've had

     Well just to start off, this is my favorite game of all time, I remember when I played it when I was just 7 years old and rented it and couldn't beat it in the 3 days I had to rent the game... So later on we finally bought it and I spent most of my childhood playing this game and beating it over and over again, I thought this game was perfect when I was 7 and today at 24 I still think it is. Most people say OoT is the best Zelda but IMO it is this game, cause the graphics actually hold up to, todays standards and when I got back and play OoT I think of how bad the 3D was back then, but the 2D of LttP is still amazing looking and I can still play this game over and over again. They did the formula perfect in this game which setup for the later titles like OoT and so on and everything about this huge and lush environment is amazing, the puzzles are harder than most of the ones in the new Zelda games and I still felt challenged in this game even though I mastered it when I was younger. Also this was the last Zelda game that I have ever died in, cause in the newer ones I never die, maybe that is just my gaming skills being perfected or maybe it is due to because the newer games are just easier than the old ones were, which is the fact that I think cause I still haven't beaten Zelda I & II on NES... if you are a Zelda fan or even just a gamer, this game is the best and a must have for every gamer that is out there in the world today...

      While it’s easy to go back and review an old game that you never played or cared much for in the past, reviewing an old game that you grew up on presents a small challenge. My play experience differs from that of other due to having the innate knowledge of how to solve every single puzzle programmed into my cerebellum, and I’d be degrading a part of my childhood if I were to denigrate the game in question. Likewise, if I praise the game too much, then I could be accused of being nostalgic, and I...

      Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (WiiVC/SNES) 0

      Should we review old games as artifacts or in the same light as their contemporary brethren? Even if a new title is released with decidedly retro stylings, does its position upon release matter more than any time in the future? The relevancy of art often fluctuates based on where a society or individual is in their lifespan at a given point in time. I wonder how people 10 years from now will view retro-styled games produced in 2010, 2011, or 2012. Will they be seen as artifacts the same way as g...
