ALTTP in 1998 was how i got started and i beat it after a year of failing. i even had that map that came with the game to use. My older brother never got a N64 so i stopped playins the series as a whole until Phantom hourglass and i was hooked on it from their. I played OOT 3 years ago for the first time and ever since then i have played every game in the series at least twice. I have played OOTand ALTTP the most though i beat them 20 times each probably and those two are my two favorite games ever. I was 4 when i started but 16 when i got hooked on the series.
