And now, the main event: cast your mind back to November 21, 1998.

Like [[xref:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocarina_of_Time#Reception_and_legacy|pretty much everyone else]], <i>Ocarina</i> is our favourite Zelda game: it's gorgeous, long and full of humour and quirkiness. Plus it has the usual excellent repertoire of <i>Zelda</i> tunes.
