But there's a tiny detail.. Both the SNES and GBA versions are named "A Link to the Past".
You think they are two different games, and that "A Link to the Past" refers only to the SNES version.

A link to the past Does refer only to the SNES version. The GBA version was made to be able to play a SNES game on GBA, but unfortunately the authors decided to go with a completely different format. They should have just copy pasted it, like they did on the Wii, to avoid confusion, which just emerged. On top of that, the GBA cart usually contains another game in it, the 4 sword adventures.

Talking about A link to the past (which is obviously a SNES game), and having a poor copy, transferred to another console in mind, is just not a logical assumption.

It is strange, that nobody mentioned the Kamigami no Triforce, a Japan version of SNES Alttp. Or you can just go and re-hack Parallel Worlds, like I did, where practically all data has been replaced to different locations.

All I'm saying is, that we need to make up our mind, on which version to choose, otherwise we can just lost ourselves in the variety of formats.

LttP for SNES is 80s rock and LttP for GBA is christian rock.

Also, the GBA could never handle a straight SNES port.

Though, it would be pretty awesome to see a LttP port for GBC.
