Easily my favourite Zelda game. I have no idea how many hours I've sunk into that game from when I was a kid.

Easily one of the best and most foundly remembered games of my SNES days. I've lost count of the amount of times I've played through it since then.

"The downside was that I became so imprinted on Zelda's top-down gameplay that I stuck firmly to the SNES, Game Boy and GBA titles. I missed out on the entire N64 and Wii canon because I found first-person Link deeply confusing"

i couldnt relate more to that section. i love top down Zelda games, I bought OoT 3D on release day, didnt even touch it. was too roped into Minish Cap i'd just gotten through letterbox off t'ebay on the same day. Criminally short but absolutly amazing, 3DS is sat on the bedside cabinet on charge all time gathering dust while my DSi XL gets hammered with 4 Swords (i have it on 3DS too but XL is more comfortable) I was about 9 when i first played teh original Zelda on my NES, a buddy stayed teh night and we were awake all night playing it to complete it, him drawing teh maps of teh dungeons room by room so we didnt get lost, me finally getting teh silver arrows n slaying Gannon (oh yes, 2 N's) only to be greated with the second quest which i've still never gotten round to finishing... Yet. I have the GBA version ordered and before my 32nd b'day i'm determined to finally get that second Triforce from Gannons mits :D

I only recently started playing through this again (GBA version). It really is one of the greatest games of all time, and easily my favourite Zelda title. None of the sequels have quite captured the 'magic' of this one (for me). It also has what is possibly the greatest music score of any game.
I like cake.

There are very few games I would buy over and over, and this may well be the number one
