There is something very special about the overworld map of Hyrule. In the glory days of my youth, the adventure of a new game started before you ever played it - it began on the car ride home from Toys R' Us, when all you had was time to open the box and peek inside. A manual is one thing, a hintbook is another (although no self-respecting gamer would read THAT), but a map was different. It was a real world tool that bridged the gap into the virtual world and helped you find your way. Its no wonder that pristine maps are so rare nowadays!
