Point & Counterpoint 7: Best Zelda - Link's Awakening

This is the seventh in a series of ‘dueling cblog editorials’ I will be doing with CaffeinePowered.

This is coming a bit early because I'm leaving for New York tomorrow and won't be back until Sunday. Enjoy this early edition of Point & Counterpoint!

As any good gamer knows, the Zelda franchise has consistently been among the best in the industry, with pretty much every game (aside from the CD-I ones) being a masterpiece. Typically people point to Ocarina or LttP as being their favorite, but today I want to discuss the Zelda game that I think often goes overlooked but is the best in the series. Certainly, all of the other Zelda games are absolutely fantastic, but my favorite one of them all has to be Link’s Awakening for the original Gameboy.

Today’s Topic: Best Zelda Game – Link to the Past vs. Link’s Awakening

I know I’m in the minority opinion on this, but I think that Link’s Awakening gets seriously overlooked just because of the Gameboy graphics it had. Ocarina and LttP certainly are great games, but I just keep coming back to Awakening as my favorite of all time. From the jokes to the new gameplay systems to the fantastic story to the music (which I could have written a whole section on but I ran out of time...DAMN YOU EARLY PLANE FLIGHT!), Link’s Awakening is a classic Zelda experience that served as a breath of fresh air for the series while still remaining true to its classic roots and holds the place as my favorite Zelda of all time.
