A Link to the Past is not only one of the best entries in the Legend of Zelda series, it is arguably one of the best games of all time. As part of their fantastic Under the Super Scope series, YouTuber GameXplain takes a deep dive into A Link to the Past to attempt to explain just what makes it such an amazing game! GameXplain uses concepts such as context, iteration, level layering, lighting, and pace to demonstrate how A Link to the Past is put together. GameXplain also uses these concepts to show how A Link to the Past improved upon prior Zelda games, and how these concepts influenced the series moving forward.
Since A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda game to date, this video was a must-watch for me. It really highlights just a few of the elements that make ALttP so special. You can watch it yourself below, or swing by YouTube to watch it there. Let us know in the comments just what it is about A Link to the Past that makes it special for you!
