    Ssssoooo

    I'm gonna play LttP, maybe "Let's Play" it. And I don't know which version to play.
    I made some research on it and most people say that the SNES version is better than the GBA one because the GBA's resolution is worse and it has annoying sounds.

    But whatever, I'm asking you, which version of A Link to the Past should I play, GBA or SNES?

    There's a difference? Aside from Link screaming when slashing his sword in the GBA version, I never noticed anything different.

    There is the four-swords expansion, but other than that it's pretty much the same.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention. Recommend based on the title itself, I don't really care about Four Swords

    There was also a new dungeon added. But you can only get through it by beating Four swords IIRC.

    If you're gonna do an LP you gotta do the parallel worlds romhack.

    Yeah, I say no hacks or cheats until you beat the original completely.

    I say SNES, just because it's the original.

    If I recall the only differences are that link yells and they renamed the Chris Houlihan room. I also noticed that the dialogue in the gba version is slightly different from the original.

    I would say do SNES.

    My bad. No Chris Houlihan room in the gba version

    Lol, there are tons of changes then. They are just so small you don't see them.

    The GBA version of the game has made the Dark World's Ice Dungeon TRIVIALLY simple. It's an insult to the game if you ask me.

    Except what you fail to mention is that one room has a puzzle that required you to back track through the dungeon in certain manner to open the path to continue. So rather than relying on problem solving skills, I believe it now requires 'whack a button, move on'.

    No cane of somaria shortcuts though.
     
  17. The GBA version also has that spot that requires you to whack a button and backtrack in pretty much the same way as the SNES version.
    The layout is just different.

    I'm not really interested in the four swords.

    And I don't cheat, it ruins the games. But thanks anyway I guess.
