Poll Where did you put the Ocarina on the c-buttons? (82 votes)

Always C-left. 21%
Always C-down. 23%
Always C-right. 40%
It depended on the context at the time. 16%

A simple question, ladies and gentlemen, but I must know your responses.

Right-C all the time for the original. On the GC version I always put it on Down-C/Z though.

C-down, or C-right in a pinch, but never C-left. I recall having a system of some kind. I think C-left was for bombs, bow and arrow, or hookshot.

I want to say C-down. I know I always arranged my items the same way when you become an adult for the first time. Bombs were always C-left. I can't remember though if the ocarina was down and the deku nuts were right or vice versa. Was it left? Damn, I can't remember.

I put it on the Z button because N64 games are best played on the GameCube controller.

Right-C.

The only proper place for it.

I am asking this because I am sitting here in abject horror while I watch someone play the original on the N64, with the Ocarina dancing around C-down and C-left. Madness. I need to prove to them that there is a System, damnit!

Always on C-Right. Always threw me off if I put it on one of the other C buttons.

C-down. Always equipped.

C-Left for bow, C-right for contextual.

Where's the "fucking wherever" option? I don't remember keeping track of where I put things specifically.

Did you somehow miss the 4th option?

@rubzo:

That makes it sound like a conscious decision on my part, like I'd put it on C-Left for boss battles and C-Right for dungeons. (Bosses can't handle my mad beatboxing.) I didn't even put in the thought for where I put it; I'd just put it wherever, honestly.

@video_game_king:

I simply meant dependent on the context of which slots were occupied by items that you currently happened to be using. I guess I just can't imagine a "truly" random placement, that just seems... crazy. Like, surely you must've had places where you always put certain items, otherwise you'd always have to be checking where items you wanted to use happened to currently be?

I don't recall ever having a single slot I'd put it in. I'd usually just put it in the one that I'm not really using at the time.

C-Left. I forget if that's a habit that started on the N64 or not until the GameCube port though. Also in Majora's Mask C-Down was always for masks. I was... weirdly meticulous about it.

Always C-Right. And the hookshot goes on C-Left.

Left, down was always the bow and right was alternated when items were needed.

No idea. I haven't played it since it came out on the N64.
Hm, I did buy that Windwaker/Ocarina combo for the gamecube a while ago though. Maybe I'll play it again one of these days.

I don't remember. All I remember is on Windwaker, the sail was the Z-button always. I didnt want to deal with that crap.

Pretty sure it was always on C-Left, with C-Down typically being some kind of utility item (like hookshot), and C-Down trending towards attack items (like the bow). It's possible I've mixed up left and right in my memory.

Man, I was so stoked playing the 3DS version. Four slots for items, AND a dedicated Ocarina button besides. You almost never had to switch items in that version.

I haven't played Ocarina in fifteen years but I'm pretty sure that it was C-Left.

Permanently on C-Right. Left and down are for equipping other items, Ocarina is never not equipped!
