On November 11th 1998 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released on the Nintendo 64 in Europe. I’m sure a lot of gamers woke up on Christmas morning to a copy of Ocarina under their tree, a gift which would keep on giving for 18 years in my case. Ocarina is my favourite game of all and I can still remember the first time I left Kokari Forest and walked out onto Hyrule field, a nostalgic memory that always makes me smile when I think of it.

The shear size of the game was enough to impress, but with such an amazing story line, excellent game play and a fantastic soundtrack, it is easy to see why Ocarina is one of the greatest games ever made.


There are so many amazing areas in the game to explore and I would spend hours just wandering around trying to find some new secrets. It was actually only  recently that I managed to collect all 100 Gold Skulltulas in the game, a task that took 18 years of game play to achieve. I have yet to catch the Hylian Loach  at the fishing pond yet though, I need to practice my fishing some more I think.


Ocarina will forever be my favorite game and I’m sure I will still be playing it 18 years from now, in fact, I think I will play some right now.
