I have a video game backlog that is about a mile long. So many new games to play, so what do I do? I play a game that came out in 1992, 30 years ago.
Last week, I finished playing through The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for about the 40th time. Not really, but I have played through the game a number of times.
I first played The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in 1992. I fell in love with it immediately. I still play through the game from time to time.
I think this game came out at the right time for me growing up. I had played Zelda games before and after this one. But this one stuck with me.
I don’t profess to be amazing at the game. I’m not. I die a lot. It’s more about the experience of the game. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past fits like a glove. I’m able to pick up the game and feel like I’m a teenager again. It’s great.
I’m conflicted on what I should play next. So many games. Too many games. Maybe I’ll play a new game. Or maybe I’ll play The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on the Nintendo 3DS which is the spiritual successor to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
