I would have to say when I won my Mew at Toys 'R Us. I had to go through and get 15 of the game pieces, but I finally won! (I had other people with me helping, So I think I only went through the doors 5 times.) It was one of the happiest moments of my life.
Of course, now Nintendo won't let me transfer Mew to my Saphire game.
Yeah, OoT was creepy the first time through - good atmosphere for the N64 (what am I saying - the BEST!)
Mine is an OoT moment too - first time I was in Hyrule Field - running towards Hyrule Market Town - the day was ending fast, and I wasn't sure what would happen next, so I ran full speed ahead...
Then I see it all go dark and I hear the howl, and the gate is so close... but then it starts to raise up, and the torches go on - so I freak out, locked out in the field with what I thouht would be wolves or something.
I turned around to see the farm and see the lights go on a flicker in the distance (I thought this was really cool!), and then... zombies! Spent the rest of the night fighting off the undead until sunrise and the gates went back up - ran in very fast and vowed never to get stuck out in the fields at night again... but I did... and it was still cool.
Oh yeah, and beating SM64 with 120 stars and watching the end sequence - that was cool - "Thank you so much for to playing my game!"
i dunno why, but the bit in Wind waker where... hang on
where Tetra transforms into Zelda was quite cool, mainly just because it played the music from the title of ALttP. i also spotted the music in OoT when you're getting told the story of how the gods made the earth...
if theres one thing i like about nintendo its that they re-use the same music, not in a dull, tired way tho. its comforting...
and as for mario 64, i spent hours and hours and hours trying to get all 120 stars (most of the hours were spent on just getting the last 5) to the point where i hated the game soooooooo much. then when i killed bowser, the only difference was he said something like "oh, i didnt know there were that many stars". and that was it. except of course that yoshi gave you 100 lives so you could reply all the levels you had grown to resent by playing them to death for all 120 stars.

Was this after you beat it with 2 hands, or not? (I'm a bit confused...)
Yeah, I beat it a few times with two hands. Then one day I was playing and was trying to hold a drink at the same time. When I found that I could reach all the buttons needed for SM64 I started a new game that I played with just one hand.

I can see how SM64 COULD be played with one hand, but I wouldn't choose to.
Yeah, I wouldn't recomend any one play it with one hand either. It's sorta uncomfortable/painful. But it's my favorite game, and I just want to get as much enjoyment out of it as possible. I can't wait till Super Mario 64x4 comes out!
The first time I played SM64 I got a feeling that was barely similar to the one I had when I received my N64, the one I had when I first played OoT, when I received my GC, and when I first played TWW, but it was different. Stronger...
I am too young to remember if I got as excited the first time I played SMB3 or any other NES games.
And I know it wasn't published by Nintendo, but Star Wars: Rogue Leader excited me a lot as well.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
