Is this the end of zombie childhood?
Finally beat, er... completed (?) ... 'A Link to the Past' (you have been Linked!)... This was the first game I got for the SNES as a seven year old but my mother was convinced on Christmas morning by our landlord's son that it was evil. So eventually she decided I couldn't have it. Though I had already fallen in love, of sorts, with it before that happened. So it loomed, liminally or something...
Nearly twenty years later I, with the help of my brother, beat it. It struck me that my obsessions with occult things a few years later may have been a direct result of the overreaction of that fellow (his name was Ran) and my mother's um, decision.
