Trivia

The inscription on the stone tablet just above the giant "Dondongo head" in the Dondongo's Cavern dungeon is the same as the inscription underneath the star statue in the castle courtyard in Super Mario 64. It is not the same in the release of Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo GAMECUBE. See more »

The Best Video Game That I Have Ever Played
23 July 2005 | by BSHBenSee all my reviews

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is quite possibly the best video game ever made. The environments, particularly Hyrule Field, are huge and very detailed. Perhaps the best part about Ocarina of Time is the incredibly long game play. The main game is exciting and their is an almost uncountable number of side-quests. You can try to find all 100 Gold Sculltulas, collect all the pieces of heart, acquire the Biggoron's Sword, complete the Training area for the ice arrow, catch the 20-pounder fish, or own all four empty bottles. Ocarina of Time's N64 sequel, Majora's Mask, is also a great game, although Ocarina of Time is a bit better.
