    Revisiting old games...

    I found myself in a nostalgia mood lately but I didn't want to play through the same old games I had before. So I ran through the games I never finished before. First was original Zelda 2nd quest.


    I always got a ways into the first labyrinth and gave up lol. Well for the first time I finished the entire quest this week, and it was pretty awesome. I ended up enjoying the dungeons and puzzles in 2nd quest a lot more than 1st quest.

    So now I'm continuing the trend and working on Ocarina of Time Master Quest -- another game I never finished.


    Fortunately I'm playing it on virtual console so I don't have to sit 5 feet in front of my television and kill my eyesight lol. Playing it on classic controller pro is different (right joystick becomes the C buttons) but manageable.

    Anyone else do this on occasion? It's been a blast going back into these old games.

    I haven't played Ocarina for years. I LOVED that game. I played the bananas out of that and Majoras Mask.

    One thing to say, final thought if you will,: F the water temple....

    LOL yeah I hear you there. Can't wait to see how I react to it in master quest.

    And Majora's Mask, that might just make the list after I finish this one...Hmmm...

    I do it quite frequently. That's why I love emulation so much. I don't have to dust off the consoles and blow my carts out.

    Master Quest isn't that much different from the regular OoT. There are just more monsters and the levels are switched around (doors lead to different rooms IIRC). For example, in the first dungeon (the Deku Tree), there are Gohma Larva everywhere. In the regular OoT, you only see them in a couple of places outside of the boss battle (Queen Gohma).

    There are two levels that drive me crazy on OoT (although that doesn't mean it's not my favorite game). The first is Jabu-Jabu's Belly (because I always get lost), and the second is the Shadow Temple (because the ReDead's screams always freak me out at night, and I jump every time a Wallmaster grabs me). I don't really mind the Water Temple, but maybe that's just becasue I'm awesome/humble.

    I am a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda games. The only one I hate is Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. I'm not sure why I own two copies of it.

    PS: Make sure you check out the "screams" and "grabs me" links.

    I used to hate the Water Temple the most. It was very confusing, and the lady (what was she called?) was naked. Shadow Link also managed to make me throw my controller to my grandmother on Christmas Evening (by accident of course, I was like 5 years old or so). Ah... Memories. Another frustrating part of the game, was when you had to sneak through the Gerudo Valley, with those guards who would throw you in prison --- but I guess that's just me. Everybody else probably found it a piece o' cake. Last boss was dissapointing though, as Ganondorf was pathetically easy to defeat, as well as Ganon.

    I'm a huge Zelda fan as well, but didn't really like Twilight Princess. It wasn't touching for some reason. Favourite is probably still Majora's Mask, followed by Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time.

    I played alot of N64 games that I had from when I was a kid (lol, well more of a kid) recently;
    i) Majora's Mask <--- I've still yet to get pass the Water temple yet (I've been trying for ages, Boss keeps klling me)
    ii) Super Mario 64
    iii) Paper Mario 64
    iv) Mega Man 64
    v) Pokemon Stadium 2

    These games are still as great as I remember them

    My favourite N64 game next to Majora's Mask is probably Conker's Bad Fur Day.
    That was one heck of an amazing game, even though it's meant for the mature audience.
    I was only seven or eight years old.

    I loved the look on Link's face when Princess Ruto said that he agreed to marraige after taking that blue saphire thing (one of the three gems you have to collect as a kid).
    Speaking of naked characters, remember the fairies? They were just gross because of the poor graphics (and because girls still had cooties ).

    Lol, I have beaten this game (well, MQ and the regular combined) at least 2 dozen times. Like I said, it's my favorite game.

    I keep reading that the Water Temple was the hardest, but I didn't remember it being that bad, so I did some research on it. Apparently it is a lot easier in Master Quest (weird, right?), and that is the version I have played the most. I guess I just forgot how difficult it was in the regular version, and assumed that it was harder in MQ like all the other levels.
