I'm a huge Zelda fan, but I somehow missed Link's Awakening as a kid. Just picked up the remake last night and am already beginning to see why the original is held at such a high regard.

same here, i never played through the gameboy version but this is great, makes me feel like im playing link to the past in a way. the amiibo is pretty cool looking too.
You got questions? Ask me like a fucking man. You know my Insta.

bumping this since I just started playing Zelda: Twilight Princess

coming fresh off a OOT playthrough this game feels immediately familiar, put ~11 hrs in the past week or so and got through two temples. trying to complete it without a walkthrough.

I can see how the developer for WW carried over some aspects (like the music being mostly MIDI/Synth) into a OOT style world. graphics aren't bad either on the GC version, might be my favorite Zelda game, can't believe I never played it in 06 but glad I am.

Arguably the best game in the series next to Majora's Mask. Been holding on to the hopes of coming across a Wii and a copy, but not going to hold my breath.

Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword are the only 3D Zelda games that I've only played through once each. I got the SS remaster and have been enjoying myself which makes me want to revisit TP even though it's quite a slow burn.

let me know how you like it. about halfway/60% through the main story and needed minimal help.

Also started BOTW for the first time and love how this one starts off, the engine they run it on is amazing as well, god i love this game series

Holy hell, out of curiosity I bought a switch and "Zelda - Breath of the wild" and I have to say it's fucking good.
If we only had this when we were kids. This game really is what we dreamt of as kids and would always fantasize about an open world Zelda.

I thought OOT was way better. Everything about BOTW was so exhausting to me, moving around the map and completing quests was such a time sink. Also getting arrows was a huge pain in the ass.

Just finished a link between worlds, and that was incredible having grown up on a link to the past totally familiar and yet different enough to be totally enjoyable.  It felt way easier than lttp, but it was great.

Now back to a playthrough of twilight princess I put on hold, then finishing botw.  I知 finding botw amazing, but I find myself wishing for a classic temple.  Not exactly a complaint, I just really enjoy proper dungeons.  I haven稚  played any Zelda in a while and now I have a stack of games to catch up on. 

Anyone played phantom hourglass, or spirit tracks?  How were they?

I'm very much in the minority where I kinda like spirit tracks and Phantom hourglass. As long as you don't expect too much they're enjoyable. It's really mostly puzzle solving. They do suffer a bit from having to travel around so much tho.

The crowd would go nuts whenever BOAC did this track. Intersectionality of backpacker/underground hip hop and gaming, I guess.
