My friend showed me Ocarina of Time. Need I say more?
:xd: Seriously, though, my friend showed me Ocarina of Time one day in 1998, and I watched him play up until a little past Link pulling out the Master Sword. After seeing all that, I thought to myself, "I've got to get this game." So I did...used, some time the next year. But, better late than never! I've been playing Zelda ever since, and my love has grown very steadily over the years, namely since The Wind Waker. I think it was after I beat WW that I realized Zelda was my favorite game series. Seriously, all those connections to Ocarina of Time...it was great. And it still is. (Of course, I mean all things Zelda, save the CD-i and Tingle games, when I say that.)
