True but I was 5 then, I'm 21 now so...it may not be so bad. Can't be worse than LoZ that was insanely hard!!!
I'm also 21, I haven't played ALttP recently but its an awesome game, and I think much harder then a lot of, if not more, then the ones after it. I also agree LoZ is insanely hard too, my lord, I still have nightmares about the rooms full of Darknuts!
