The second game I ever owned on the Nintendo 64. I remember feeling like such a failure because I couldn't beat it without cheats. Little did I realize at the time that when I was 28 years old, I would still count SotE as one of the hardest fuckin' games ever.
Even the cheat was difficult to enter. I needed to keep a pile of rubber bands next to the console, because it was impossible for me to press all the necessary buttons with my fingers.
