The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

released on Nov 21, 1998

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the fifth main installment of The Legend of Zelda series and the first to be released for the Nintendo 64. It was one of the most highly anticipated games of its age, and is listed among the greatest video games ever created by numerous websites and magazines. The gameplay of Ocarina of Time was revolutionary for its time, it has arguably made more of an impact on later games in the series than any of its predecessors even though they had the same cores of exploration, dungeons, puzzles and item usage. Among the gameplay mechanics, one of the most noteworthy is the time-traveling system. The game begins with the player controlling the child Link, but later on an adult Link becomes a playable character as well and each of them has certain unique abilities. Ocarina of Time also introduces the use of music to solve puzzles: as new songs are learned, they can be used to solve puzzles, gain access to new areas and warp to different locations. Dungeon exploration is somewhat more puzzle-oriented than in earlier games but they are not too complex.

You guys heard of this game? Ocarina of Time? You guys heard of it? It's pretty good

Com certeza meu jogo favorito da vida, nenhum jogo me marcou tanto igual Zelda Ocarina Of Time.
Sua trilha sonora, personagens, e a gameplay te prende de uma forma inexplicável, fazendo que você se apaixone pelo jogo.

damn the second half fell off hard

"o fluxo do tempo é sempre cruel... sua velocidade parece diferente para cada pessoa, mas ninguém pode mudá-la..."
tive muitos pensamentos ao finalizar Ocarina of Time, a transição do jovem Link para o herói adulto é extremamente triste, pois ele é lançado em um futuro sombrio e sem esperança, onde Hyrule está em ruínas e as forças do mal dominam. não há espaço para a infância florescer. entendo isso como uma metáfora para a vida real onde muitas vezes somos privados da oportunidade de experimentar uma infância antes de sermos lançados ao mundo adulto, temos que ser nossos próprios heróis. meu primeiro contato com o jogo foi nesse ano e me arrependo de não ter tentado antes, é uma obra prima.

Grew up playing this game, 5/5 in my book

"The flow of time is cruel"
This is a watershed title in video game history, and for me personally too. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the moment my imagination spurred into something greater as a three year old child. Everything I've ever thought of creatively has been influenced by this game in some way, shape or form. I cannot stress enough how much this game has shaped me into who I am today. From this whimiscal hero's journey that Link goes on throughout the course of the 20 hour experience, to the fantastical world of Hyrule and its myriad of wonderful, diverse and creative races, to Koji Kondo's sublime soundtrack that mixes atmosphere and amibience with melody and triumph. Ocarina of Time is not a perfect game, but it was the perfect game for me at that time in my life, and that's all that really matters to me. While it's not as thought provoking or as deep as its contemporaries, it still is a must play for anyone who is serious about video games as an art form.
