Link’s Awakening has always been kind of the gap in my Zelda history. I bought it new a loooong time ago (as you can see, after it went “Player’s Choice,” but before they released the full-color DX version for the Game Boy Color) and played it for a while, but got stuck and never picked it up again. I recently decided to start over and have now almost reached the point where I was when I quit last time, so will I break through and finish the game this time, or cheese out and let it sit for another 20 years? I’ll let you know!
I like the fact that they brought a lot of design and gameplay elements from Link to the Past into this 8-bit Game Boy environment. It really makes me wonder how one more Zelda on the NES would have turned out (allegedly, Zelda 3 was originally in development for the Famicom/NES as early as 1988, before they switched the project to the then-upcoming Super Famicom/SNES).
What are YOU playing?
