speaking of a link to the past, i just recently played that game for nearly a year and a half on and off on my snes classics console. i never play that game before and just last year is when i play it and i haven't beaten it yet. i love the game but the puzzles can get really hard that i always use the walkthrough guide youtube video of someone else played it to figure out the puzzles. great game, i will give it a 9.5/10 for gameplay and everything else.
the reason why i haven't beaten it yet is because i lost most interest in videogames since summer 2002 that i only play a little on and off. since august of this year, a month after i realized i sprained my left ring finger from holding the 21 pack noodles cup (there were 24 but 3 were has already been eaten) with the tips of my left fingers as i cleared up the shelf before i put the noodles cartoon on the shelf. i held it for like 7 to 10 seconds and it sprained my ring finger. the reason why i held it with the tips of my fingers are because if i held it flat, the cartoon might slip off my hand and fall to the floor. to this day, my ring finger is still swollen and it still ache a little whenever i wash dishes. nearly 2 months ago, i tried playing zelda alttp and i could feel the ache from it on and off so i stop playing it. i think in order for it to heal completely, i have to stop washing dishes for 3 months to let it heal but its hard not to wash dishes though.
8 nights ago, i tried to crack my left ring finger and the ache doesn't go away yet so i might wait till next month in january 3rd at night to crack it again to see if the ache go away yet or not though. its mostly my mom's fault for making me hold the instant noodle cups cartoon before she told me to clear up the shelf. i was planning on putting the cartoon cups on the washing machine next to it as i clear the shelf but i was afraid that she might be angry at me and yell at me that i held it with my fingers as i clear the shelf. its been like nearly 5 months already that my left hand fingers still hurt. i couldn't play videogames or workout at the gym because of it. sorry for my long story.
i love the song too, zelda alttp the dark world theme. i will try to remember to post it on your birthday.
