A Link to the Past

There really is no better top-down adventure game out there. Even though Phil and I might quibble about the meaning of 3D, what we cannot quibble about is how amazing this game is.

So I started playing it again tonight. It really is a masterpiece, and it also sits in stark contrast to the huge, monster, cut-scene enhanced games that are found today on home consoles and the PC. This is coming from a person who loves Bioware’s games and is really looking forward to Mass Effect 3.

However, there is something refreshing about fast-scrolling text just pointing you in the general direction of where you are supposed to go and then getting out of your way. If you have a chance to play it, or many games from this era, give it a shot.
