Almost every individual who considers themselves a “gamer” and has half-decent taste expresses a great respect towards Ocarina of Time or just Zelda in general. And why shouldn’t they? Ocarina of Time is arguably the best Zelda game to date. Also, Ocarina of Time was a pinnacle in gaming history, marking the beginning of 3D graphics and gameplay. So with that said, it comes with no surprise that Miyamoto had the most fun creating this wonderful N64 masterpiece that will go down in gaming history.

Here’s Mr. Miyamoto’s quote:
“I have a lot of fun making all the games, even surprisingly the ones that have a lot of challenges to solve or they take a lot of time to finally bring together into final form… Even those ones I have a lot of fun, and the ones where we have a lot of freedom to make the games, those are fun to make.”
“But, I guess, thinking back, probably Super Mario 64 and the original Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. That era was the first time we were taking games and bringing in this new 3D technology, building the rules and the framework through which games would be depicted in 3D, I think, probably made those the most fun games to work on.”
“In working with some of the younger staff members, and when they have a question on a project and say, “I don’t know who to go to to find the answer to this question,” I’m always the type that says, “Well, if you don’t know who has the answer, then simply make the answer yourself.” I have a lot more fun when we’re making up the rules as we go along.”
As you can see, this quote clearly proves that Miyamoto and the rest of the developers over at Nintendo really love their franchises, though I wouldn’t go so far to say that they appreciate them more that their fans. It’s nice to see that Miyamoto is so honest about his beloved Zelda series, and hopefully he will stay that way for years to come.
