To commemorate the upcoming 20th anniversary of A Link to the Past, Nintendo Power is included an article in their April edition about one of the most arguably acclaimed as well as underrated games in the series.  They believe this title may be the greatest “link” in the series.  Find out more after the jump!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the release of A Link to the Past, but it is still revered and loved by many.  Among the many reasons that make it such a great game, Nintendo Power cites some of the innovations that it provided not only the series, but to the world of video gaming as well, including its emphasis on story telling.  A Link to the Past also provided us with pieces of hearts and the trademark spin attack that our hero is well known for.  Their number one reason goes to the opening sequence, which they say despite the technological limitations of the time was able to provide a sense of impending doom an suspense.

Oh, and who could forget these guys?
