Spoilers of course.
1. Over halfway through the game, I found it odd I still had not got Epona. So for the 5th time, I went to the ranch, talked to everyone, again, nothing. Turns out, as the rock showed, I had to talk to him while ON THE HORSE to get Epona. What difference does that make?
2. The windmill. As a kid, he says he wants a new song or whatever, so I whip out my macarena, ocarina rather, and play every single song I have - nothing. As an adult, he says I did something to him 7 years ago - no? I did nothing to him 7 years ago. As the rock showed, apparently, the future affects the past. I was supposed to know this and whip out the macarena in the future so I can make him angry in the past so I can - no. It even made a chime as a kid when I whipped it out without knowing the song I was supposed to already know.
3. After the water temple (which was a lot easier than people made it out to be, maybe the N64 version was harder), the map showed 3 or so blinking dots. Kakiroki village or whatever being one of those dots, I go to it - nothing. Talk to everyone - nothing. Leave several times and come back - nothing. This is when I ended up getting Epona, then I randomly go back to the village and... what? A cutscene? Of a shadow thing coming out of a well? Why the heck did Epona trigger that cutscene? How was I supposed to know that? At that point, and even before, I could have gone to the desert as well, just to get stuck without the light boots or magic eyes or whatever. I lucked out randomly going back to that village.
4. And my last point for now I guess, the broken sword I have to give to the goron. I warp to the crater, go to the city, talk to the big guy - nothing. The rock showed - nothing. The Internet said to go to the top of the mountain and talk to him. How the heck would I have known that? So I go there - nothing! So I leave, randomly exit through the city this time, then climb up, and THEN he appears. How the heck was I supposed to know to exit through the city rather than the crater in order to talk to him? The top is the top, what difference does it make?
Also, my thumb keeps getting cramped and sliding off the nub.
Not to mention trying to 100% the master quest. I'll save you all the trouble and tell you right now the running man cannot be beaten in the master quest, because Nintendo thinks that should have been obvious. I mean, if you are gonna make a game harder, my as well make it impossible.
Aside from these things, and other things, great game.
Mark my post as useful if you too think the game is great. Don't mark it as useful if you just read the topic title and nothing else.
