Nintendo’s Virtual Console is a brilliant platform that provides today’s generation of gamers access to video games from yesteryear. One of the best aspects of this service is the privilege to play some of Nintendo’s classic games, and now, gamers have access to two of the better games in the timeless Legend of Zelda series: the Game Boy Color titles Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages.
I feel like a lot of gamers missed out on Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages simply because they came out during the end of the Game Boy Color and beginning of the Game Boy Advance. Also I don’t feel like portable Zelda’s had as great a rap as console Zelda’s, although they are easily considered worthy entries into the franchise. Regardless, with the Virtual Console release of the Oracle games, we finally have easy access to two of the franchise’s more unique games, console or portable.
