Okay…. This is the first Legend of Zelda entry on the list… and hoo boy, I think I already pissed some people off with this decision already.
Legend of Zelda follows the story of Link and his companion Navi as they travel across the land of Hyrule, saving the Sages and trying to stop Ganondorf from taking over Hyrule.. Yeah, get used to hearing that story description of other Zelda games. This was considered to be THE Zelda game back in the day, the one that everyone needed to play and is thought to be the greatest video game of all time. And while I don’t personally agree with that, I still upendo this game a lot. I played a lot of it when I had it and really got invested in finishing everything in this game. I really enjoyed going through the dungeons in this game. Some of my vipendwa were the Dodongo Caverns, the Forest Temple, the Shadow Temple, the Spirit Temple, and of course Ganon’s Tower. They really add well to the puzzles while making great use of the items wewe collected. Just going through them, experiencing all sorts of new ways to find out about the dungeons, as well as having a ton of interesting mini bosses from the Darknuts to the intimidating Shadow Link, really adds to the fun duels of this game. The bosses are also pretty fun. From the dragon Volvagia to the specter Phantom Ganon. Each boss feels fresh and, while some are easier and lamer than others, at least have a unique way of fighting them and isn’t just “Attack big weak spot” (Most of the time). One of my inayopendelewa thing was exploring the world far zaidi than doing the main dungeons, however. From going through Hyrule fields, to helping out in the side quests, I felt like there was so much to do in this game then there really was, and even if I did everything, I wanted to do more. I wanted to see what was going down at the Ranch. I wanted to go and explore Kakariko Village at night. I even wanted to do the lame stuff like try to beat the running man and always Lost and got real upset with how fast I moved only to realize there is nothing. And Navi was a lot of fun to have around. I know a lot of people thought she was annoying, but I found her conversations to be informative and helpful, unlike that blue annoyance Fi. Ocarina of Time just felt like a zaidi joyful experience, even with Navi calling to me all the time. And the muziki in this game kwa Koji Kondo is probably one of my inayopendelewa video game soundtracks out there. It’s so nostalgic and makes me happy just listening to it. I may upendo Wind Waker’s soundtrack, but even I admit that Ocarina of Time’s muziki is far superior. The game has an instrument in the title, it should be expected.
I know that Ocarina of Time is the most loved game in the franchise, and while I do upendo it, I do expect some people to disagree that it is this low. But regardless, we can all agree that Ocarina of Time is a great game and a timeless classic for everyone.
