That's an NPD chart. I know it's an old game, but LttP is apparently undertracked on this website.

There's a typo in the game title. It should be: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Lots of people seem to forget the ''A'' for an unknown reason...! o_o

I first played it on a rainy night in the year 1992.And this image was burned forever into my brain.When it's raining in a dark night i always get this special thunderstorm-Zelda-dungeon-feeling.
One of the five best games i have ever played.

my big huge wish is to see a remake of that master-piece A Link To The Past you're the real best game that links any gamer to the past to that wonderful 2D of the past.

Oh, and the thing about no perfect games, well you could argue that perfection does not even exist. Perfect for me :p

@ Meow The Mouse... Difficulty too low? It's much harder than any of the 3D Zelda! O___o How can you say this? Beside, iono about you but I don't like it when a game is impossible I like to be able to beat it.

Could give it a 10 but only "perfect games" should get a 10. OOT is perfect. LTTP therefore gets a 9/10. Easily one of the best games of all time and #3 in the Zelda series behind OOT and TP.

haha...ok so I just did some research on the zelda timeline and learned that it is very cloudy and all that's out there is many arguable theories....

Here's a link to a video of one of the theories which is quite interesting...

This is an awesome game and if you haven't played you should at least give it a try even if you think you don't like zelda games...

also from what I've read A link to the past refers to it being a prequel to the two NES games. Also Ocarina of Time is a prequel to A link to the Past...

Best Zelda ever, hands down. It defined the series, created all the good tools (Bottles, Hookshot, Flippers), introduced the dual world scenario and the fomrula that's been re-used even today. OoT was good but it was just a 3D LttP, not nearly as good as the source material, the original, while important for making the series what it is, is just surpassed in all areas. LttP is THE Zelda.

Maverick Hunter Z posted 29/07/2007, 12:08
Never really liked this one, guess its because I didn't play it until after Ocarina of Time. I still hold the original Zelda to be far superior. 6/10.

P.S. I'm not really sure this was meant to be a prequel since it was originally called Zelda 3 when originally planned for the NES. But its a hard call.

OldManOnCampus posted 28/07/2007, 09:38
I'm pretty sure the name implies that it's a prequel to the first two as well. My favorite Zelda game, something was lost when they made it into 3D, but only a little.

I think z64dan is right, in fact, they could also have said: The legend of Zelda: a link ''with'' the past. For the ones that speak French, we would get: ''La légende de Zelda: un lien avec le passé''

Fuzzmosis, I believe the descendants of the 7 wise men are the links to the past. Zelda, herself, is a link to the past.

What perplexes me is the title. Link does not go to the past. Link stays in the present, just goes to the dark world.
