The first game I ever fell in love with was The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past. Super Nintendo. (Sighs) Such a good game! Everything about that game is perfect. The music is amazing, the story is so good, the scalability of the difficulty is perfect. It’s literally a textbook case of how to make a perfect game. It’s a game where I go back. I have a Super Nintendo, I have a Super Famicom, I have the Japanese cartridge and I have the American cart and I go back and play it every year. It’s the game that made me want to get into speed running. It’s just a such a good game I can’t say it enough.
