    All this Twilight Princess news and info has got me thinking back through all the past Zelda games and just how much fun i've had playing them. But the one that sticks out the most for me has got to be A Link To The Past.

    Man what a truly awesome game...

    In appreciaition of A Link To The Past post your favourite moment in the game or the point that made you think 'wow this is just awesome'..

    Yes, It is "Wow, this is just awesome." good. All the dungeons, items, side quests, and enemy variety. Why did they have to "dumb down" all the other LoZ games (except for OoT of course)? Hopefully with 70 hours of gameplay, TP will be even better.:)

    I'm curious why no one has yet mentioned the similarity of the Dark World in Link to the past(which was such an awesome idea) and the Twilight realm in TP... seems like TP is taking ideas and game play from all LoZ's to date and throwing it in with some new ones in a fabulous way....

    Man it is definitely one game on VC that will be worth getting. You won't be dissapointed.

    I'm getting it on VC because I just could not find the GBA version of it.

    I love playing it on the computer but nothing beats playing it in the lounge room on a decent standard tv.

    Its a great game and unfortuantely I never managed to get past Ganon's tower because the keyboard config I used made it a tad hard to react fast enough to the enemies on the screen.

    Any Zelda fans would love this game. So full of surprises!

    Link to the Past is one of the more interesting games, and I have fond memories of it-I remember when I finally conquered the game, I called my sisters in so we could all watch how it ended.

    The boses and such were really interesting, and even your various weapons, like the orange cane that couldmake orange bricks, or create those platforms in the mountain stage.

    One piece of the puzzle that always confused me-what exactly happened to the flute boy? When you play his ocarina for him, he suddenly transforms into a tree in the dark world. Did anyone ever find the reason why?

    The dark world was one of the best things about the game-just a total alternate reality, and that 'vwowmf-vwowmf' sound effect as you passed between realms.

    As well as the names: Sahasrahla, Aghanim, and many more.

    Btw, speaking of recycling Zelda themes, they stole some of the Aghanim battle for the final boss in 'Link's Awakening.'

    LOZ link to the past is heralded as the greatest Zelda game ever and worth checking out by anyone who hasn't.

    Sorry mate I'm not doing the replace-keyboard-with-controller thingy. I'd rather wait till it comes out on VC menu. I guarantee you guys its going to be the first SNES game I'll get for the Wii.

    The game is just great - the music, the people, the light and dark world. While it may feel like a 2D zelda game its quite unique in the way every object blends so well with each other.
