Itchy Thumbs says: "Let me take you on a journey back to the 20th Century. The year is 1998, with the Playstation and Nintendo 64 battling it out in the console world, Ben Stiller is winning the heart of Cameron Diaz in There’s Something About Mary, Nitro is still regularly beating Raw in the ratings, and millions of music lovers are wishing death upon Taylor Hanson, partially for Mmmbop and partially because he was an annoying hyperactive toss-rag with a stupid haircut.
It was towards the end of that year that we were blessed with a thing of beauty, in the form of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Much like Mario 64 before it, Ocarina took a beloved Nintendo icon and gave him a new perspective on life, leading to an epic adventure still regarded by many as the greatest game of all time. Flash forward to 2011; Sony and Nintendo are still big players in the console war, Stiller is still scoring with girls too young and too hot for him, and Hanson’s role is being fulfilled by Justin Beiber. And now, Ocarina of Time is back – ready to give the somewhat flagging 3DS the shot in the arm it truly needs."
