Jeremy Parish made an interesting point about this game on his site recently: it's essentially the equivalent of one of the original text adventure titles (like Zork), but with a graphical interface instead of a text parser.

And he's right, too: in those games, your progress was more determined by how much you could explore and how much you had gathered, with new acquisitions opening up new possibilities all the time. To distill the essence of the original adventure game model so perfectly into a graphical adventure is both rare and remarkable.

This is still my most favorite game of all time. I bought the very last copy ever sold at a Toys R Us (first game I ever bought myself). To this day I hope that they make another Zelda game that had the "figure it out yourself" feel that this one had. There weren't people telling you where to go next. You had a world to explore and the rest what up to you. See what you find and see where it takes you. I miss that and hope they do it again. 999/10. =)

The less text, the more mystery surrounds it. My favourite Zelda game of them all.

Bad numbers for Others i think.

One of the best Zelda Games in Time, maybe, Ocarina of Time is a piece better than it.
