The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is widely accepted as one of the greatest games of all time and here are a few reasons it will live up to that title. Obviously I’m a huge fan (I bought a Wii just for Skyward Sword) and this game was all I played growing up. Without a doubt, your future grandkids will be doing the same and here’s why:
The gameplay in OOT is truly unique yet everyone knows the formula. Enter dungeon, map, compass, mini-boss, new item, boss key, main boss, heart piece. The repetition ensured gamers knew what to do with little to no instruction and somehow managed to stay fresh. OOT has a huge influence in games, pioneering the lock-on combat style which was simple but still fun. It also influenced the recent Darksiders game, that mirrored OOT‘s platform style dungeon exploration and the way items were collected.
