Despite owning this game when I was younger and playing it for hours, I never finished it. With this, I have finally completed a game I have such strong nostalgia for, and it feels amazing. It’s certainly not my favorite Zelda game, but The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is one of the best remakes Nintendo has ever made and is absolutely worth playing for all Zelda fans.
