GOTY | Number 2 — The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Arguably my favorite series of all time, it’s hard to beat a good game in this series. When Nin­ten­do first announced they were doing a direct sequel to The Leg­end of Zel­da: A Link to the Past, I was beyond excit­ed. The actu­al prod­uct was bet­ter than what I had even imag­ined in that moment. Tak­ing the best of both old and new and mirac­u­lous­ly tow­ing the line between them, The Leg­end of Zel­da: A Link Between Worlds is one of the best games of this series.

A-Link-Between-Worlds-2Remix­ing all of old tunes is a bold move that does not always work out, but they did a great job of it here. The abil­i­ty to rent and even­tu­al­ly buy all of the items in the game is a stroke of genius that will hope­ful­ly inspire more broad changes to dri­ve the series for­ward. The lev­el design is inspired and the game is paced in such a way as to keep you play­ing with­out burn­ing you out. In short, this game def­i­nite­ly deserves the num­ber 2 spot on my top 10 games of the year.
