About Zelda: Ocarina of Time: This is an action-adventure game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console as a part of Nintendo's critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda video game series. It was followed by a direct sequel, Majora's Mask. The game starts out with the series' trademark silent protagonist, Link in the land of Hyrule. Link sets out on a long and perilous quest to stop Ganondorf, the Zelda franchise's prime antagonist, from obtaining an item called the Triforce, a magical object made of three golden triangles which grants whoever touches it whatever he wishes for. To stop Ganondorf, Link travels back and forth through time using the Ocarina of Time, the game's namesake. Throughout the game, Link acquires several weapons and items, which are used to fight monsters and solve puzzles. Link traverses several large, labyrinthine dungeons, teeming with dangerous creatures and complex puzzles. In addition to the main quest, there are several side-quests to choose from, as well as several collectable items scattered throughout the game, though all are optional and do not need to be completed in order to complete the game.
