Links Awakening is an 1993 Action adventure game developed by Nintendo Entertainment and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy. It is the fourth installment in the Legend of Zelda series, and the first for a handheld game console.

After the events of Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, the hero Link travels abroad to train for further threats. A storm destroys his boat at sea, and he washes ashore on Koholint Island, where he is taken to the house of Tarin and his daughter Marin. She is fascinated by Link and the outside world, and tells Link wistfully that, if she were a seagull, she would leave and travel across the sea. After Link recovers his sword, a mysterious owl tells him that he must wake the Wind Fish, Koholint's guardian, in order to return home. The Wind Fish lies dreaming in a giant egg on top of Mt. Tamaranch, and can only be awakened by the eight instruments of the Sirens. Throughout Koholint Island, nightmare creatures attempt to obstruct Link's quest for the instruments, as they wish to rule the Wind Fish's dreamworld.

This in my opinion, is the best Legend of Zelda game out there (Shock!!). From the moment you wake up on the beach, All the way to the final boss, it's a game that sucks you in, and just gives you pure magic and enjoyment.  The world is beautiful to explore, and the dungeons are well thought out, with good designed bosses.

Proberly to high, but for me this gets a 95% rating
