  1. I never played it when I was a kid, but got the GBA version. It was fun and it’s interesting to see the start of themes from OoT where they began. I’d put it right in the middle of my favorite Zelda games list!

    Happy birthday ALTTP!

  2. I remember waking up early the day after my parents bought this for me so I could start playing. Got super excited and woke up my mom to tell her I rescued the Princess. Then I got stuck for a few years at a part where you had to light 4 torches to reveal the door to a boss battle.

  3. Best game ever! Still pick it up every couple of years. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Man, I feel old.

  4. Today’s episode of making you feel old brought to you by this post. Thanks OP. Also, this frame was and is great.

  5. This makes me so happy because today is my birthday. this is one of my favorite SNES games, and top Zelda games.

  6. Masterpiece

    I wish I’d beaten it, but I never owned it as a kid. Just rented and borrowed multiple copies.

  7. I don’t think young people understand how bad-ass the SNES was.

    Here’s a list of some of the best 16-bit games of all-time that were first-party IPs on the SNES:

    * The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    * Super Metroid (my personal favorite)
    * Super Mario World
    * F-Zero
    * Pilot Wings
    * Super Mario Kart
    * Yoshi’s Island
    * Donkey Kong Country
