The best hand-held console in gold limited edition form, along with one of the timeless RPG games in Zelda, is an irresistible combination. The most pleasing things about the DS are its portability and the relative simplicity of games on this system versus the big consoles. That simplicity frankly leaves a bit more to the imagination in gameplay, rendering it a bit more fun than some of the over-the-top, immersion experiences of the large machine games. Plus, that stylus is killer. As someone who was formerly devoted to PDA-based games, the DS is a perfect fit. Plus, a classic RPG like Zelda with its heavy use of text works well in this stripped down format. And, oh did I mention this limited edition DS comes in a really snazzy gold color?
