SO! I remember I was like 7 when Ocarina of Time was released. We didn't own a N64 back then (too expensive) but our cousins did. I would always play Super Mario 64 by myself and Star Fox 64 with my siblings and cousins but one game I would NEVER touch was Ocarina of Time. Back then, it was like one of the most mature titles out there (or at least that's how I saw it), WAY beyond my maturity level so I left it alone.
The in like 2001 one of my friends brought over his N64 and a copy of Majora's Mask and I finally played a Zelda game!... and then I got stuck as in the the beginning of the game, right after you turn into Deku Link (is that it's name? been a while). I never played it after that.
Fast forward to 2009, I had a ton of wii games, all the big line ups;Super Mario Galaxy, Wario Ware Smooth Moves, Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, Super Paper Mario. I was looking for the next great wii experience and every website or blog had listed Twilight Princess as the greatest wii game. Now, I really brushed off the game since I just had those memories of not being experienced enough to play Ocarina of Time and too stupid to play Majora's Mask. Well I. Was. Surprised. Twilight Princess is to this day my favorite game (next to Wario Ware Twisted and Sonic Adventure 2) and it launched me on my huge Zelda obsession.
