The second volume of our in-depth design breakdowns of classic video games, The Anatomy of Zelda dives deep into the design, history, and mechanics of Nintendo's pair of classic 8-bit action RPGs: The Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link. This volume compiles work previously published (http://telebunny.net/toastyblog/anatomy-of-a-game/) but also includes a modest amount of new content contributed by GameSpite regulars. And there's more to come!
The site currently hosted at GameSpite.net has been online in various incarnations since 1996, although it's only in the past few years that it's become a home to smart, incisive critiques by a loosely-associated team of writers.
