It's strange to watch a trailer for a video game I've played through multiple times - it's a different experience. Most trailers leave a trail of suspense and speculation in their wake, but this new Ocarina of Time trailer, for the 3DS re-release, is different.
Watching a trailer for a game you've already played before has you scrambling to recollect your own memories, your own experiences, instead of hunting for clues and signs of what's to come. Watching this new trailer I couldn't help but remember where I was when the game was first released on the N64, what I was doing, what kind of person I was.
A trailer really is nothing more than marketing, I get that. But I'm increasingly finding myself becoming excited about the Ocarina of Time remake. It's more than nostalgia, almost like a revival of a memory we all share. I realise how completely hokey that sounds, but I can't wait to play the game - once again - in its finished, complete state.
Thanks to Kard8p3 at Neogaf for the find.
