The History Of The Greatest Game Ever Made

The History Of The Greatest Game Ever Made

Alright. So maybe my headline is drenched ever-so-slightly in hyperbole. And maybe the fact that Zelda: A Link to the Past is the greatest game of all time is merely a subjective opinion to which I subscribe, but this incredible document, unearthed by GlitterBerri, features interviews with key members of the Zelda development team (including Miyamoto) and is a genuinely intriguing piece of history.

The best part about the interview is the fact that the team have been interviewed directly after development – and are almost blissfully unaware of the impact their newly complete game is about to have. There’s a weird, colossal naivete surrounding the entire interview as a result – and its strangely ironic reading the interview now, decades after a Link to the Past’s release.

You get a sense, however, that the team understands what a great achievement A Link to the Past was – even then. Particularly Miyamoto who is fully aware of the huge attention to detail the game required.

It’s a fantastic interview, and an absolute must read.
