I have to agree - for all its problems, Spirit Tracks has a really good OST. I'll betcha giving all the Lokomos different oddball instruments was just an excuse to use them so much, and man it's just worth it.

I still say that the normal Overworld theme from it is one of my favorite pieces in the series.

My favorite track from ST is either that or Byrne's boss theme. It's also got one of the best final boss themes in the whole series

I'm always disappointed this has never returned in any Zelda or Nintendo crossover game. Link's Awakening as a whole gets little to no love from Nintendo. I was absolutely shocked when I heard the overworld spliced with Tal Tal Heights in Brawl.

Oh and the fact that "Ballad of the Wind Fish" is only there in name only in Majora's Mask is fucking stupid and will always annoy me.

I'm still incredibly happy they played Ballad of the Wind Fish (the LA one) at the concert. I'm not ashamed to say I was moved to heavy tears. LA was my first Zelda game so it holds a special spot in my chest cavity.

Yeah, it seems Link's Awakening was a lot of people around our ages' first Zelda (Happy birthday, by the way!). Zelda 2 was the first one I played, but Link's Awakening was the first one I got for myself back in 1997. Think it was for my 8th birthday.

I think I was six when I got it. The first one I'd ever played was LTTP when I was a toddler, but I played OoT at a cousin's house a couple years before LA. Zelda, along with Pokemon, was always sort of integrated into my life history.

Of course, me being a really stupid kid, I had no comprehension of the game's plot twist halfway through and so I continued on blissfully unaware until it smacked me in the face at the end of the game. That, I think, is really what cemented it as such a memorable experience, even if it was unintentional on the game's or my part.

also thanks

Oracle of Ages was my first game when one of my sisters got it for Christmas back in like... 2001, I think. The first one I really played was Wind Waker. I distinctly remember one of my friends telling me "you have a talking boat" and my 9-year-old self just had to get it.

Yeah, I will admit, I do love that song.

Before I gave the game another run a few months ago, the last time I had played it was when I was 8 or something, so I hardly remembered the music. So when I heard this, I had no idea where it was from, but I really dug it.

So you can at least listen to this for a good retooling of that song.

If you want to talk about nostalgic dungeon themes, there can be only one:

[song]FACE SHRINE YO[/song]

Hot damn, Link's Awakening is still probably one of the best Zelda OSTs out there. Every dungeon theme fits perfectly (and in this case adds some emotional weight to the proceedings), the overworld is great, town theme is great, windfish, boss theme, everything is perfect.

I love the somber tone of Face Shrine. I've only played through the game twice, once when I was a kid and again only a couple of years ago. Both times the song created an empty kind of feeling for me. That was probably also due to how echo-y the Game Boy's sound usually was. Either way it was effective.

Was going to post Sword Search as well but it looks like I was beaten to it. That's one of my favorite out of all the Zelda songs, and definitely my favorite from Link's Awakening.

I'm gonna post this since I saw it on SY's feed a while back and I absolutely loved it, you can sort of imagine it playing at a low-key game convention. Makes me feel all fuzzy for that game again.

This is one of my favorites from Link's Awakening, if only for the ridiculous context in which it plays.

I love how the entire game has this bizarre tongue-in-check atmosphere to it. It's almost like a parody of the initial Zelda games, and in a good way.

BY THE WAY, YOU CAN PRESS THE SELECT BUTTON TO LOOK AT YOUR MAP.

EH? WHAT'S THE SELECT BUTTON?

DON'T ASK ME, I'M JUST A KID!

The game does have a bit of self-aware humor to it, which does give it something of a light-hearted atmosphere.

Just reading the page in Nintendo Power about the Historia makes me want it even more :3

I'm always disappointed this has never returned in any Zelda or Nintendo crossover game. Link's Awakening as a whole gets little to no love from Nintendo. I was absolutely shocked when I heard the overworld spliced with Tal Tal Heights in Brawl.

Oh and the fact that "Ballad of the Wind Fish" is only there in name only in Majora's Mask is fucking stupid and will always annoy me.

Yeah that one is a pretty good theme!

I think I had the B&W version and then the DX version of Link's Awakening...or maybe I just played the B&W and then got DX when it was released.

As for the Face Shrine it was always amusing to rush into Facade's layer drop a bomb as he was appearing so it explodes just before he accidentally mentions that he has a weakness...though he was a sad boss fight, but still not as frustratingly bad as the Angler Fish from the 4th dungeon!

I was glad to see that as a mini-boss in later Oracle games, Facade at least had a few more tricks (many holes opening up behind you and such).

Having a lot of fun playing through Link's Awakening. I haven't touch that game for a long time so I'm happy that I'm trying out that game again.

Currently I'm stick at Bottle Grotto because I can't find the Power Bracelet. I explored all the rooms, defeated the mini boss, and still can't find it.

the game is really straight-forward at this point, so you're just fucking up. Look harder.

Now, if you start complaining about Eagle Tower, that's justified.

I had no idea you could break the pillars in Eagle's Tower on my first time through. Figuring it out was a pretty huge "duh!" moment for me.

Well I finished Link to the Past just now.

I had some unfortunate luck when I was playing it earlier this week (the controller breaking on me during mid-game, accidentally saving over a file that I already got much further into), but that didn't stop me from really enjoying it. Awesome soundtrack, awesome gameplay, awesome everything.

Although it's hard for me to say whether or not LTTP is my new favorite Zelda game, because I still love everything about Link's Awakening, as well.
