This is definitely my favorite game of all time. It has everything a great game needs. There's lots of action requiring quick decisions. You need to discover hidden secrets and come up with different ideas to get past each level. The way that the game combines all of these elements is what makes it such a great game.
And the music is awesome still today. nintendo, zelda, greatest game ever, of all time, music
Since the original version that came out for the NES, there have been many other versions, including The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
This is a 3D version for the N64. It was an amazing game too and had things like fishing and horseback riding while shooting a bow.
N64, legend of zelda, ocarina of time, great game
The story is similar to others like The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. Where someone, who's safe and quiet home is threatened, sets off on an impossible quest to save their world. Even though when he sets off he isn't the fastest, smartest or strongest he decided to go anyway. The kind of idea that shows the difference one person can make. I like these kind of stories. And with Zelda being a video game, you are not just following the story, you become the character and feel more of a connection.

Apparently when you go off on a huge quest you have to put your foot up on a rock and stare off into the distance.
