The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, first screen, by Will.
First Screen of Zelda 3. I had played this game maybe three times all the way through before I realized the lantern was RIGHT THERE. (If you miss it, it replaces five rupees in a later chest)
VGE sez: So Link and his Uncle share a one-room shack, and the uncle (presumably) sleeps sitting down at the table? And who keeps a lantern in a treasure chest? I would hope that Link wished for better living conditions when he got the Triforce.
