"Ocarina of Time is and always will be the greatest action-adventure game ever made." Doc says about the game that changed his life forever. "It was the game that represented the best parts of our childhoods; friendship, love, and adventure. As that nerdy kid growing up, Link was the unlikely hero that you always hoped you would be. The underdog, everyone loves the underdog."
