Should I get a $30 card and get: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/Ages and Link's Awakening or just save my money and wait for A Link Between Worlds??

the second option, but I'd keep some money so I could buy the VC ones later(though I already have Link's Awakening DX on my 3DS :) )

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Ages and Seasons are pretty good. Links Awaking I wouldn't bother with if you have played a Link to the Past already. (All the puzzles are the same nearly).

I would get Ages and Seasons now and then just add a bit more for a Link between worlds. (I get the impression a Link between worlds is going to be too easy).

Might as well get at least one of those while you wait. I recommend Seasons the most, but they're all pretty good and pretty flawed in their own ways.

Doesn't talk about games.

:( :( :( :(

By that logic, one shouldn't bother playing any games after A Link to the Past. Nintendo's been rehashing puzzles since then.

Gamestop is holding a promotion that grants a copy of Oracle of Seasons if you pre-order A Link between Worlds. At, least, the one in my area is. I'm not sure about yours. If the one in your area is doing it, then it may be worth it to wait for A Link between worlds as that would also grant you Oracle of Seasons (again, should you decide to pre-order).

That being said, if you insist on downloading it from the eshop, then disregard this post.

If I got seasons I would get ages as well. I've heard you can't have one without the other. Is that true?

In Australia we don't have Gamestop. We have EB Games. I don't think they have that option but I'll have a look. Thanks!

Thanks everyone for all your replies! I think I'll get the 3 GBC games and wait until I hear some reviews about A Link between Worlds. Thanks!

Well you don't get the full story with just one game but they're still playable. However having both makes it exponentially better I think.

Thanks! The only handheld ones I have are: Spirit Tracks, Phantom Hourglass and Minish Cap. Do the puzzles in Ages/Seasons resemble any of those?

I have a question about Seasons/Ages. How do you play the two games? Which one do you play first? Do you play them simultaneously?

Only played PH, and I would say mostly no, mainly because of the use of the touch screen, but also the equipment and how they are used makes a bit of difference as well.

You can play either game first, then when you have finished it you get a code which you put into the second game and play through that and the VERY final dungeon. There are also side quests which are done between the games which yield even stronger equipment

Both are separate adventures, when you beat one it gives you a code you can use when starting a new game in the other and you can play a modified version of the story, continuing from the game you played before.

So each one has a different final dungeon, right?

(Trying to explain without spoilers, is difficult) Yes both have different bosses. But if you use the code at the end of a game to continue on the second game, you get another boss and upon killing it will completely wrap up the story.

Or perhaps an easier way to explain it:
Playing oracle games separately:
(Ages) Beat Final Boss A. End of game.
(Seasons) Beat Final Boss B. End of game.

Playing games consecutively:
Beat Final Boss A(or B), use code on other game, Beat final Boss B (or A), game unlocks Final boss c, Beat Final Boss C. End of Game

That very last boss (C) is the same regardless of which game you are playing, and it doesn't matter which order you play them in
