Guessed by @S.Peelman

Before I made lists at VGChartz, there was a period in my life where this game was my undisputed #1 of all time, so it feels a bit crazy for me to have it here, outside of the top 10 for the first time. The big issue with A Link to the Past is... well, I loved it too much. That "30+ playthroughs" is a pretty conservative estimate, in fact. For a few years, I'd constantly play through this game, sometimes it'd be almost a daily thing. I guess I was too young to understand the concept of getting burnt out on something but it's what happened with this one and it's never really recovered.

Still. Such a classic, such a great game. A Link to the Past established just about everything everyone's since come to expect from the Zelda franchise, it gave the series a very strong identity and really cemented its place in the history of gaming as a timeless masterpiece. There's nothing about this game that isn't absolutely fantastic.
