Talk:The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past/Game Boy Advance Version

So the title says The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES). Note the emphasis, meaning the entry only refers to the SNES version, relegating the GBA version to a separate page once it's created. Yet we're documenting SNES-GBA differences here as if they were just versions of the same game.

This is not our usual procedure, I mean, there have been a lot of games released across multiple platforms but I have never seen e. g. a comparison page detailing the differences between SNES Final Fantasy VI and its GBA remake. Because the latter is a separate game with more features and such. Of course, it's okay to mention the remake if it's relevant e. g. to unused content which got reused later on or to version differences which affect the remake, but specifically pointing out everything that changed between the two versions seems as useful as comparing an apple and an orange to me.

So, why are we doing this? If we do, we should probably get rid of the (SNES) from the page title because it makes no sense if GBA is included as well. -- Sheeza (talk) 18:32, 12 March 2014 (EDT)

My fault as I were the one who suggested what I added for the main page was perhaps more suitable for a sub-page due to being so text heavy. And I agree, you are of course completely right about this. IMO the GBA version shouldn't be treated any differently than the GBA-Final Fantasy ports/remakes. A separate ALttP/Four Swords page would be more fitting. Sorry, got carried away with my additions. If you guys feel this isn't suitable, please go ahead and revert the changes -- Ganon 01:45, 13 March 2014 (CET)
