Favorite Classic Game: The Legend of Zelda; Ocarina of Time
Quote: Games like Zelda; A Link to the Past and Super Metroid would always make me doubt about Ocarina of Time being my all-time favorite game ever, since they’re really good games and come in as a close second and third, but Ocarina of Time is a game on a whole new level and which I’ve been waiting for for more than three years.
It’s when I hear the piano on the titlescreen play, with Link and his horse Epona galloping by on Hyrule Field with the moon in the background, that I get goosebumps all over again and something inside tells me: YES! This is my favorite game! Back in those days Nintendo gamers would always look forward to the next Nintendo franchise being resurrected in 3D and Zelda was just one of those games which I knew would eventually come into 3D, making me look forward to it ever since the Nintendo64 came out. I’d be on my 56k dial up internet spending hours to get more information about the game.
It’s the whole atmosphere, music, graphics and whatever else about Ocarina of Time that just triggers something inside me, making me want to finish it 100% all over again and again without ever getting bored. The gameplay set some new standards for controls and gamedesign for years to come after that and the whole game is just unique in every aspect!
