Honest Trailers Tackles The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Honest Trailers Tackles The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Smosh Games has released a new Honest Trailer lampooning The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

It'd be no great exaggeration to say that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is probably one of the most important games ever made. It pushed the limits of game development and provided developers and gamers alike a glimpse at what 3D games could be with enough time, skill and effort. As good as it was however, most who have played can attest to the fact that it still its frustrating and annoying moments.

Hoping to highlight some of these, the folks over at Smosh Games recently turned the Honest Trailers spotlight toward the Nintendo classic to point out some of the lesser foibles of the game and franchise as a whole. A lot of these are what you'd expect. The narrator is quick, for instance, to touch on Navi's incessant attempts to gain the players attention. That said, the video also hits the franchises maddeningly complex timeline, its tendency to continually rehash the same core ideas and Nintendo's refusal to call Link an elf when it's pretty clear that's what he is.

All in all, it's a really funny re-visitation of one of the most revered games ever made and we'd definitely recommend you give it a watch, even if you've never played Ocarina of Time yourself. Check it out and let us know if you think there's anything the video didn't touch on but should have. We promise we'll listen.

I've always loved these trailers. The MewTwoKing joke at the end there is obscure as fuck O.o

Ok that made me chuckle alot (the annoying Navi part). I Loved hearing that narrator voice and what he says.

It's cute? I don't know. It's hard to say you like something when we've all heard these jokes before from other comedians, though they know how to execute a joke properly, I'll give 'em that.

Not their best, but still got a few chuckles.

Honestly, I don't think Ocarina holds up nearly as well as people think. Unskippable cut-scenes, slow-as-fuck dialogue that also can't be skipped or sped up, the Water Temple, a lot of enemies that just sit and block for minutes at a time and you can't do anything about it, and a final boss that's easier than any other boss in the rest of the game. Yeah, I replayed it a couple of months ago and I have no real interest in ever playing it again. Liked Majora's Mask when I replayed it, though, which is odd because I didn't like it when I was a kid. *shrug*

"And whatever the hell these are supposed to be."

My sexual awakening is what.

Apparently its the name of some pro SSB Melee player what wrecked everyone with Shiek.

... Meh... 'Been there, done that...

Seriously, how many times has the Navi joke been made for the last 16 years?...
God, that made me feel old :S

I love the Honest Game Trailers. I love Honest Trailers in general, actually.

Hate that water temple. Hate it so much. Thank the high heavens for the internet when I finally got my own copy of the game on the GameCube.

I only beat the game two years ago on my 3dsXL, that water temple was not so tough :D

It holds up still I think.

The 3DS water Temple was made way easier than the original so you aren't able to gloat bout it. Sorry

I had trouble with the bit in the center room where you had to swim underneath that rising block. I couldn't actually tell tht there was a path down in the first place.
