I immediately thought of some Zelda memories. The first time I came into contact with this series was when I picked up a boxed second-hand A Link to the Past from a game store-it still retains the maximum of the previous owner and 100% completion. Too young to be really competent for the entire game, I never deleted the save, and kept it to explore the corners of Hyrule. At that age I could never reach the enhanced link by myself through the save file completed by the previous owner.
At my age (born in 89), Zelda, who really matters to me, is of course Ocarina of Time. It was released at an extremely important moment in my life, but I remember it was imminent even before it came out. The game media at the time advertised it as the best game ever, and I would be addicted to any news in the official Nintendo magazine and N64 magazine.
I clearly remember that one of the two magazines declared that the game was “too big” to be reviewed in one issue, dividing the verdict into two issues. These days, I can see what it is-the time when the review code arrives may be mixed with the deadline, plus a solid sales strategy that sells more questions-but it works for me. I will never forget that comment.
The charm of Ocarina of Time attracted me even long after it was released. I remember that I woke up too late in the flashing blue light of the CRT monitor, obsessively loading the Zelda fan site to read the upcoming Majora mask and endless secret rumors and cuts-Temple of Light, Triforce Theory , Some hidden ocarina songs, called “Sage Overture”…Of course, most of them are not true. These days, the leaked data has now confirmed some deleted content and even made the beta map playable-but at the time, think about it… well, magical.
It also had a real impact on me. This obsessive reading of Zelda’s information eventually helped me enter a similar Final Fantasy community, which led me to start my own fan site, which evolved into an RPG site over the years, which led to this career. So maybe I owe Zelda a lot. Th anks, link.
James Bilcliffe, guide editor:
Ironically, I think I am a bit young for Ocarina of Time.
Afterwards, my parents bought me an N64-at the end of its life cycle around Christmas 2001, because I really wanted Pokemon Stadium 2-living in a place with no siblings and no other people The rural areas participating in the game meant that I didn’t really get the RPG.
I am used to playing PS1 games without a memory card, or the same five levels as Sonic the Hedgehog 2, so the idea that you can have such a huge adventure in multi-day games is very strange to me.
But since my father bought a game console from a guy at work-including absolute classics such as Golden Eye and Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire and Zelda-there are full game saves on every cassette.
So, not only can I play Goldeneye in the big head mode, but it also means that I can jump into Ocarina of Time at the point of no return outside Cannon Castle. This means I can practice fighting with a full set of weapons. And by re-inserting the Master Sword to switch the time zone. And play mini games in the castle town.
Most importantly, it showed me that there are so many things to do in this world besides running around in Kakariko village and staggering in the lost forest until dinner time.
After that, I learned more about RPGs, and now I want to say that they are my favorite genre. So thank you Chris-whoever you are-for showing me how to play RPG and for letting me into Zelda.
