So I've never played Ocarina of Time, which when it comes to games is an absolute crime apparently. So I'm sort of interested in this 3DS re-release and think it's probably better time then ever to check it out with refinements made to the overall experience. People speak so highly of this game that I feel I can't really call myself a gamer if I don't play it at least once. But I'm just not sure, all the reviews I've read have been very positive and it appears to be the best game currently on 3DS. But part of me can't help but think many of these reviews are written in a cloud of nostalgia and that I might not 'get' what makes this one of the greatest games ever made in 2011.
I've never understood why Zelda is so beloved to be totally honest, and I think that is as much due to never having played Ocarina of Time as anything else. Don't get me wrong, Windwaker was a colourful experience that I enjoyed somewhat but I wasn't a fan of the most recent Zelda offering on the Wii. There lies my problem, if I wasn't blown away by some of the most recent Zelda games will I be with Ocarina of Time? I'm fascinated to see if Ocarina of Time was like many much loved past games where you at to be there to appreciate it or if it still holds up today as a great game.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
