My first issue of EDGE. I remember picking it up when myself and some friends stayed over at a friend's apartment in the Republic of Ireland, near the sea. I have very fond memories of that summer--we got a very hot couple of days when we stayed over, which was a bit of a novelty--and I recall most vividly that all of us were breathlessly excited for "the new Zelda," in between playing Tales of Symphonia
together. I think we pored over EDGE's preview for the game for a very
long time. To our great delight, that August, we all assembled again and headed over to an unusually sunny Edinburgh, where we'd get to play the newly-named Twilight Princess
at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival. The nights before that trip were restless ones; I don't think we got a wink of sleep the night before, despite having to get up early to catch a boat over to Scotland and drive across the breadth of the country before the show started.
I've never been more excited for a game in my entire life. That issue, and the summer it heralded the arrival of, were pretty much together the catalyst for all that excitement--and I think the issue, in particular, is what brought me to the original Gamesradar forums, that year.
