Score: 5.5/10

Unlike many video gamer players, I did not play this game growing up. I played this game recently and I did so without the bias of nostalgia. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game that is simply too old. Playing this game was a chore and was not fun enough for me to continue playing it.

Video Game Review: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

Details: Originally released in 2006. The HD release was in 2016 for the Wii U. Beat the game in about 33 hours. Official site is https://www.zelda.com/twilight-princess-hd/

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has released two content packs since it’s release in 2017. These packs add more content to the game, but I don’t think they are essential or worth it for anyone except those who desperately love the game.
