“Replaying Link to the Past. Within the first 10 minutes I had already stormed the castle and rescued the princess. By that point in OoT I was still trying to find a shield. Old games didn’t mess around.”
Some new games get it. Some games throw you right into the action. Other games punish you with an hour of BS before they let you have fun. But there’s more and more of the latter these days.
Link to the Past has a great beginning. LTTP could have really used a Second Quest. A shame the game was so easy.
