Many fans of the Zelda series rank A Link to the Past as one of the best Zelda games to date, while some even hold it as the one of the best games of all time due to its grand story and epic adventure.

One of the reasons A Link to the Past felt like such an adventure was its lengthy story, which could take up to 15 hours to complete depending on your play style. However, YouTube user vgcuts has now managed to squeeze all of that juicy content into just under five minutes for us all to watch.

The video you are about to watch is part of vgcuts ongoing “Abbreviated Video Game Memories” series, which also contains the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog and Donkey Kong Country.

The video is a perfect way to rekindle your desire to pick up and play this game once more, or to simply bask in the nostalgic memories it may bring to mind. Let us hear your thoughts on the video by leaving a comment below. Also be sure to check out vgcuts channel as well for more brilliant videos.

    It was so vibrant and colorful… that's one of the things I always loved about it so much. A welcome relief after the NES days. And there were so many cool items and stuff to get:)

    By far the best Zelda game.

    When I bought this game I was afraid it would be like the first zelda game, and I'd just have a terrible time of it, but I was surprised at how much I love it, even though it is chaotic 😛 Stuck in the first dark world dungeon though, I feel like an idiot…

    "up to 15 hours"!?
    I played it last year because of the anniversary. It took me 34 times playing it to solve it and find every hidden thing. I know I wasn't playing for less than 30 minutes at a time.
