    I've been working tirelessly on this video and relaunching the channel. If you enjoy it, please like, comment, and share… I would REALLY appreciate the help. In the works are a couple "Is It Fun?" episodes, Nintendo Power episodes, a Top 20 NES games, and a new series on Retro 80s' and 90s' toys and cartoons.

    This is a perfect game. All these years later and I haven't played another game this good. Not saying there aren't any, I just haven't played it. Picked up Horizon a couple years ago, supposed to be good, trash compared to this.

    3:54 Screw you buddy! Kiki the monkey is NO friend of mine -just a hairy little thief and someday i'm gonna stab him and serve monkey brains out of his skull while sitting on the rupees he hustled from me.

    So, since I can't really find a good answer to my question elsewhere, guess I'll pose it here
    So I played through Zelda: Link Between Worlds a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it
    So I was wondering if I should play Link to the Past, since I've never played it and the two are supposedly very similar. The reason I ask is since they are very similar, does it take the fun out of LttP? Like is the fun exploring the world and fighting the dungeons? But are they (The world exploration and dungeons) the same as in LBW?
    What would be your recommendation, anyone who loves LttP?

    Played this when it came out in the 90's, but I kept getting stuck. Unable to progress in the game, in a time before internet… what could I do? I even called the Nintendo hotline for help, but after my Grandmother got the phone bill… that wasn't happening again! So I never got to really experience this game. …But now I'm picking up the SNES Classic, and I'm really looking forward to completing this FINALLY!

    Good job of putting into words what many kids felt playing this game back in the day. It was easily my favourite game on the SNES along with Mario Kart and Street fighter II. When I watched this, it reminded me of the excitement I felt as I walked home from school pondering what new discoveries and items I'd find when I got home and started playing. It captivated a generation in a way that not many games do. This game is a masterpiece.

    Really enjoyed this video! As the last zelda game I beat, it holds a special place in my heart. I'm a fan of the gushing, it's totally justified 🙂 Well done

    Loved this video. I could really feel your passion for the game. I just got A Link to the Past on snes for the first time. I originally played the game on game boy advance many years ago in my youth and am now going to experience the game in it's original form for the first time. This video was a great precursor to my upcoming experience with the original game. Much love, friend.

    The first RPG I ever played, I think it had some of the best puzzles I've ever encountered in a game, Nintendo really put a lot of thought into trying something new at every turn, I was a little disappointed with the story, Ganon's alter ego Agahnim could have done with more of an explaination as to how he was able to exist in the world if Ganon was stuck in the world of darkness(If anyone can explain this please do), but from a sheer gameplay, graphics and music angle this game was solid, I actually prefered the Gameboy sequel I think Nintendo have a habit of making better Zelda side games than they do with the main ones, I liked MM over OoT for example.
