Absolutely. Big bustling overworlds with plenty to see, do and interact with, good dialogue and character interaction, humor, memorable moments, good music and it does have that Zelda magic. Get both, they're very different games.

These two are probably my most favorite of any video game series.

They are also only $2.99 plus tax at the Nintendo store until the 11th.

With that being said, I'll be the odd guy on this and say no.

The screen dimension Nintendo chose to play these is completely off for those like me who are pixel purists.

They also used bilinear filtering for the graphics.

It just doesn't have the old school look like I was expecting.

Are there any options to change the display?

Also, do all VC games have the same bilinear shading?

If so, I'd much prefer emulation over what Nintendo has done with them.

It's possible to play the games in their original resolution (and with a GBC border) by holding down Start or Select as the game is booting up.
With great responsibility comes great power.

I mean, people beat Soul Calibur with the Dreamcast fishing controller, or countless games with a DDR mat. I certainly prefer buttons, especially for action games, but you can do a lot worse than a touch screen.
