Finding Zordiana in a forest.

Beloved SNES masterpiece A Link to the Past won top honors in VGChartz‘s Top Ten Super Nintendo Games.

The chart was compiled via voting on their forums, with members listing their top five SNES games in order with numerical values applied to the rankings.

A Link to the Past is in great company, with amazing games like Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy IV, and Super Mario World. Yet clearly the fans agree – A Link to the Past is the best of the best.

It is also the game that invented the current Zelda structure. Many features that would later reappear again and again in the Zelda franchise found their beginnings in this little epic game. Everything from the Master Sword to Kakariko Village, from Hyrule Castle to the Sages, from “Ganondorf” to the Spin Attack: their origins can all be traced back to A Link to the Past

Take a look at VGChartz site for the full top ten list.

    Link to the Past truly was a Master Piece… for the most part I consider Ocarina of Time to be a 3D incarnation of this piece of gold game.

    I do love the system set up by this Zelda title. Mind you I do miss being able to complete dungeons out of order. Although you can just grab the dungeon items and run off to the next dungeon if you really want… so you can do them sort of out of order, although once your half way in one, you may as well complete it.

    Super Metroid is better.

    • So you're wasting your time here, Troll? Why don't you go play it since it is so much "better?" 8P

      • Now, now, boys, no need for inter-franchise hate, We're all Nintendo fans here, at least. :[

        • Who, me? An inter-franchise hater? XD

          For real, at least we are Nin-fans, though it would be "better" if our minds were set on the same series. But I don't hate Metroid–except for the stages on Super Smash Bros. Other than that, they're great games for exploration and action.


    Nice. First Zelda game I played. A part from TWW, best game ever imo =)
