THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO GAME EVER! CHANGE MY MIND

This game was a masterpiece ! i didnt wanna play it at first cuz it was a sequel to a link to the past which i really hate till this day but this was a completlly different game , and most zelda games has a gimmick that makes it stand out between the other entries and this games gimmick was merging into walls . you can move only horizontally (right and left) while merginig into walls , which adds way too much creativity to the dungeons and puzzles , and also [SPOILER ALERT!] you can travel between hyrule and lorule , which is a dark version of lorule , and there is way too much more
