Day 12 – A Link to the Past

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is without a doubt my favorite game of all time.  If I had to try and name the number of times I’ve played through it, I’d say it’s roughly 50.  A big part of that devotion may be the fact that it was the first Zelda game I had ever played, and play the shit out of it I did.

A story that I mention in this video is how I acquired the game.  Back when it first came out, I would rent it any chance I got.  Unfortunately, I rarely got to rent games, and even then I was only able to play them for a day.  Needless to say, I became obsessed with this game.  My mother picked up on the fact that it was basically a substance that I physically needed, and bought it for me for Christmas.  Unfortunately, she had bought it in May.  After weeks of hearing me go on and on about all the amazing shit in the game and how much I wanted to play it between rentings, she finally reached her limit.  On one amazing summer day, she basically just walked into my room, handed me the game, and asked me to shut the fuck up about it.  I had never loved her more than that moment.  That first day that I truly owned the game, I played it nonstop, until I had an eyestrain induced headache.  Then I played it a few hours more.

What I’m trying to say is I fucking love this game.

I wanted to show you all this game in it’s entirety via this last 12 Days of Link video, but unfortunately with the recording setup I have it’s a pretty unrealistic goal.  So instead I’ll just show you the Light World portion of the game, which is about a third of it.  Maybe someday I’ll have a ballin enough technical setup to show you everything you deserve to see.

Day 11 – Super Smash Bros.

The Super Smash Bros series is probably Nintendo’s greatest multiplayer achievement.  Actually there’s no ‘probably’ about it, it just is.  The original N64 is right up there with Goldeneye as one of my most-played-with-3-friends-in-the-same-room games.  Melee and Brawl are pretty much the only games still played on their respective consoles, and I’m amazed we haven’t seen a DS iteration yet.  Maybe on the 3DS . . .

Day 10 – Twilight Princess

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a cool game.  It’s basically an updated version of Ocarina of Time, which pretty much set the standard for Zelda’s since it was released.  I really like the dual gameplay with switching back and forth from the wolf form, and the visuals and music gives the game an epic feel.

This game also introduces one of the most interesting Zelda characters, Midna.  It’s a shame we’ll probably never see her in another game.  She can ride on my back and talk down to me anytime.

Day 9 – The Wind Waker

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is a damn beautiful game.  It’s very colorful and vibrant art style really set it apart from other games of the time.  Of course this immediately made everyone mad because HEAVEN FORBID a game be stylish and colorful.  That wouldn’t be mature for mature gamers such as ourselves.  People are fucking stupid.

Anyway, I have never finished this game, which is a damn shame, because once completed you can play through the game again in your ballin’ Lobster Pajamas.  I wish I had a pair in real life.

Day 8 – The Minish Cap

I’ve never played The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap any further than what you see in this video.  It seems like a fun Zelda game though, so after the 12 days are over I may have to go back and complete it.

Also I use this video to unwind and chillaxe after the insanity that was Day 7.

Day 7 – Soul Calibur 2

I’m no too big into the Soul Calibur series.  In fact, Soul Calibur 2 is the only installment I have played.  From what I hear it’s supposed to be a super deep battle where only the strong survive.  I have experienced none of this.

Day 6 – Majora’s Mask

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is weird.  That is all.

Also here’s a big ol’ protip for you:
DO NOT ATTEMPT THE FINAL BOSS FIGHT WITHOUT THE FIERCE DEITY’S MASK!  I’M SERIOUS!
