Despite the somewhat abrasive title, what the author does here is to introduce the idea of "genre greatness" vs "greatness" and defend how Zelda: A Link to the Past is an example of a Genre Great game.
My 2nd favorite Zelda game!
The best Zelda game ever made.
I've never played it, but the English title they chose (A Link to the Past) is a freaking pun. Why do you put a pun in the title? The Japanese title was a lot cooler (The Legend of Zelda: The Triforce of the Gods)
Because he is THE LINK to the past ?
...is that I never knew of its awesomeness when it first came out 20 years ago, and I waited till the GBA release to try it out.
