    Yay! Though it’s not my personal favourite Zelda game, it was one of the first games I ever watched someone play. When I was 6, I had a friend of the same age who lived up the street who had the game and I’d watch him play it in his room. We had crushes on each other, and there was a part in the game where you need the pegasus boots to zip through a “maze” in the town to get a heart piece. We didn’t know about the boots, but he always told me he wanted to get that heart for me and would try over and over to get it somehow. He never did. The music that plays in the town to this day still reminds me of romance!

  2. I did not play this game on the SNES, instead a friend downloaded a copy of the internet years later. I was surprised how it seemed to continue the story from the Ocarina of Time game (although it was released before). I was also surprised by the ambitiousness of the developers by creating an in-depth story and producing two worlds. Finding one of the hidden dungeons by using the transporting bird provided a challenge

  3. An epic series that will go down in history as timeless! Link to the Past is one of my favorite Zelda games if not my favorite old generation Zelda. Majora’s Mask is my favorite, but LTTP is classically awesome.

    Zelda is by far my favourite game series! The first game I played in it was A Link to the Past. It felt so epic the way the sword was given to you at the start, and the music in the castle was so inspiring. Happy memories 🙂

    Happy Belated Birthday to one of a classic! I didn’t play it when it first came out, but I have since grown to appreciate it as one of the first games to fully develop the Zelda formula.
