The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Inspired by the wilderness in his backyard, Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo had crafted a masterpiece in video gaming with the The Legend of Zelda series. Ocarina of Time sees players take on the role of Link, a forest boy who must defeat Ganondorf, the evil leader of the Gerudo desert people. To do this, Link is given the Master Sword and the Ocarina of Time and ventures through the land of Hyrule, defeating Ganondorf’s armies along the way. While it is aimed at a younger audience, there are some moments (in particular, the ReDeads, zombies who enjoy “hugging” your face) that can be frightening and better suited for adults.
Ocarina of Time is a momentous title on the Ninendo 64 console and is considered one of the best video games ever made. The game was praised for its level design, gameplay mechanics, and sound – with its soundtrack being one of the most memorable in gaming. Ocarina of Time cemented a good deal of industry standards through its design. While there had been praise for its now out-dated graphics, the frame rate can present some problems, including blurry sections.
