Every day, once a day, give yourself a present.
Greetings all! Bryan King here and as of October 2019, I’ve been a proud member of the Zelda Dungeon staff.
I was fortunate to be a child during the heyday of the NES, and was able to “get in on the ground floor” so to speak with a lot of long-running franchises that we still enjoy today. Notably however, is the fact that the very first video game that I was able to get my hands on, was The Legend of Zelda. From that point onward, I’ve considered it my favorite franchise and view it as one of the cornerstones that define my personality and who I am. I’m constantly appreciative of Zelda’s ability to re-invent itself with each entry while also retaining the soul of what made it a genre-defining franchise to begin with.
I have a lot of sentimental attachment to each entry, but A Link to the Past is the one that is closest to what I consider to be the penultimate Zelda experience. From its heavier focus on storytelling without being overbearing, to its incredibly designed set pieces (looking at you great pyramid), it’s the installment that I always recommend for newcomers.
When I’m not playing/writing about Zelda, you can usually find me hanging out with my family, at one of my weekly Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, contemplating another marathon of Twin Peaks or glued to my Switch.
