Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
This game really got me emotional! The ending is sad... But the game itself is overwhelming! I urge you to play this game!
90's kids rejoice!
If you may recall, there were 2 other LoZ games made for the Game Boy, called Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. Those two were made with about same assets and controls as this one. However, this game has the weirdest references to Mario that you may find in a LoZ game. For example, walking from the house you 'awaken' from you find a Chain-Chomp tied to a stake outside the house! Other than that, this game has all the platforming, puzzle solving, and story that we have come to expect from a LoZ game. The only thing that keeps me from giving this game a 8 is the price, since 6 bucks is a bit much for a Game Boy game.
Originally, I played this on the black and white Game Boy - now remade with color on the DS? YES! Solid game play, memorable story, unforgettable ending. The Legend of Zelda series kept getting better, and this is one classic that helped build that.
