I always try to think of a hand-held game that you would play not out of being inconvenienced in being unable to play your console, but that you would go out of your way to play, and I always come up blank.

Are hand-helds the biggest meme in gaming? Switch doesn't count, since it's not an exclusively hand-held system.

Link’s Awakening I think is the only GREAT game that actually still deserves to be played in 2019. The rest of it’s library are inferior version of games better played elsewhere.

That’s just a graphics/sound update that doesn’t somehow rendet the original obsolete. The original (well, DX) is still worth playing if you find its presentation charming.

I'll never stop liking this gem.
WL2 and 3 were great but didn't have the soul and atmosphere of the first one. they felt watered town against it. WL1 had such riveting mystique about it. WL2 got rid of it. sadly. because WL1 really felt like being a treasure hunter and everything felt like a fated and significant thing to do especially how they utilized all the triggers for the island's terraforming. it was cool exploring the SS Tea Cup too because you knew nothing about these pirates and there was no dialogue either. it was all "show, don't tell". fucking cool game.

>> No.5436404

To be fair, up until maybe the Vita, all handheld consoles were made with the idea of bringing last generations' console games with you on the go, but in poorer quality. The original titles that were made for them were usually shitty puzzle games. I don't think any retro handheld has a title that would make you go: nah, not firing up my console, just sitting on the sofa playing this on a tiny screen instead.

Just got through "Palm Trees and 8" and through Medusa's cave. A few observations from when I last played the game.

- The hit detection is poor by modern standards, but certainly not as bad as people say. If the hit detection were perfect, I think the game would actually be too easy.
- The music was and remains among the best gameboy music ever produced.
- I loaded up on keys and mattocks because I remembered the horror stories. But, you use very few per dungeon, and ever since that large initial purchase I really haven't had to buy any more. Even by 1991, gamers expected games to be on-rails and prevent you from gaming yourself into a corner. Not so here, but there are also two save slots. Keep one open before the dungeon.
- The overworld is actually pretty linear, you just take a winding path through it. The game actually came with a map, so using one online while you play is perfectly fine.
- As with most retro games, it's really really nice to never bump into a lengthy cutscene.
