I picked up "The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds" earlier tonight. I believe this is the first day one purchase for me since StarCraft 2. I'm just on the first dungeon, but I haven't had this much fun with a Zelda game since Oracle of Ages.
The linear, hand-holding style adopted by Zelda games for the past two decades seems to have been completely ditched in favour of an open world and exploration reminiscent of the NES era. Fortunately, there's way more to do than play the Money Making Game with old men in caves. Given the extremely positive reception for this game, I hope that we've seen the last of the likes of Phantom Hourglass and Skyward Sword.
