In which a panel of Leon, Darren, Karl and Leah Haydu consider what the fifth The Legend of Zelda title brought to both the series and videogaming in general. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time remains one of the best-reviewed games in the history of the medium, but how do we feel about the game some 18 years after its Nintendo 64 launch? As well as our own perspectives – then and now – of versions older and newer, we also hear from members of the Cane and Rinse community, including some heartwarming Ocarina of Time memories, some tales of inspiration provided by the game and a dozen Three Word Reviews.

Captured from Darren’s very own gold Australian PAL cartridge from the original Nintendo 64 release (hence the washed-out look – apologies for that):
