E3 has come to a close, and with that there is a certain amount of reflection, relief, and excitement for what’s to come! After traveling 4,000 miles roundtrip in order to go to the show, I’ve found myself reflecting a great deal not only on the show and how I feel about Nintendo, but on where I am in my life and where I’m going. I used to do this a great deal a pre-teen as I dealt with a multitude of different issues, and I would always go back and listen to the end credits of Ocarina of Time to help me sort my thoughts out. It saved me in what was probably the most difficult part of my life.
That’s why, once again, I am listening to Ocarina of Time’s end credits, contemplating my time at E3 and where I am heading in my life. It is such a beautiful piece of music that sums up one of Nintendo’s most incredible journeys to date, despite the game being 17 years old. That’s why it is my choice for today’s Music Monday.
