I ended 2013 well, by finishing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the first time in my life. This was actually the first retail game I got for my 3DS two years back. Although I liked it then, I struggled quite a bit and gave up some time at the Goron section (as young Link). I didn’t quite get a hang of the exploration, the weird save structure, and so on. A few years back, on my DS Lite, I had stopped playing Phantom Hourglass for similar reasons.
Now, two years later, having played quite a few other games, I seem to have become better adjusted. This time round I had a ball. Every bit was as enoyable as a ton of fans have said. I can see now why it constantly hovers at the top of the All Time Great lists.
Playing (and finishing) it was probably the best gaming experiences I’ve had. I ended up buying Link’s Awakening a week later from the eShop, and also plan to get back to Phantom Hourglass.
Favourite moment: Lots. But the exquisite music gets a special mention. Zelda’s lullaby is now my phone’s ringtone.
