I am specifically looking for that weird 3D clay-looking one from Zelda 1, but I'd be interested in seeing anything cool. I really like those ones from old 8-bit games where the maps were more detailed and fantastic-looking than the actual games.

that hyrule one is great
And it's especially great when you figure out that it actually shows the overworld of both Zelda 1 and 2 connected to one map.

When I was a kid, I spent hours and hours trying to match the map to either Zelda 1 or Zelda 2, until I figured out they were both on the same God damn map :lol (I don't, live in an English-speaking country, and hadn't learned English at all back then, so the text didn't help either).

I would scan the awesome 2D NES-style overworld map from Okami and post it, but I don't wanna bend my precious art book. :(
I think someone had a photo of it somewhere though.

Remember when you were moving around this map for the first time? It was, and still is, the shit nitty shiz.

I have that one on my home computer from last time someone did this topic. I'll post it later if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Man, World of Xeen was an incredible package, what a great game.
Indeed.

I'd love to see a remake with an oldskool, 'grid', 1st person 3D world... with well animated, high-res sprites... Of course, illiterate review magazines will knock-it for not being 'true-3D' and only 14 people will buy it!

SECRET OF MANAAA:



Secret of Mana 2 (i.e. SD3)



Man, I remember seeing this in either an old EGM preview or an old Nintendo Power preview way back then. I probably fantasized hours on end what each world was like and what secret dungeons and areas there were. A damn shame it never reached our shores :(

(besides emu)

Honorable mention is that hand drawn map for Link's Awakening (which I'll eventually find unless someone saves me the trouble :D )

Wow is right. There's over 200 hours of gameplay on that map. And that's not counting some of the storyline locations that are not pictured there.

damnit, the 3 I wanted to post were taken

looking at the morrowind map makes me remember how much better the world was than Oblivions, Balmora was the greatest place to have a house.
