This quote from gamesradar is a good way to describe how influential it was and that's why it's considered one of the fathers of modern gaming.

" Ocarina of Time had a lot riding on its shoulders in 1998. It could have crashed and burned due to a lengthy development cycle, 3D gaming still being in its infancy, and the amount of risks that Nintendo took with its design and gameplay mechanics.

The impact that these innovations have had on the games industry have proved that the rewards were worth the risk. The problems Nintendo solved back then have been influential across gaming genres and, whilst public acknowledgment of this influence is thin on the ground, it’s difficult not to view Ocarina of Time as one of the fathers of modern gaming.

It’s hard to understate the effect that Ocarina of Time has had on the industry. There are plenty of reasons why it is considered an all-time great, and why all gamers - no matter their affiliation - wax lyrical about a quarter of a century on. Games wouldn’t be what they are today without Ocarina of Time, which demonstrates there’s probably no game more deserving of the “best game ever” title. "

I didn’t even play it at launch. My first experience with the game was the 3DS release and I instantly knew that this game was special.

why are you quoting Gamesradar

I thought journalists were wrong most of the time

we must ask the users of Metacritic what they think

That it was the first 3D Zelda and still feels fresh and modern enough to be played today with little to no hesitation or setbacks is certainly a testament to its high quality, but it's been over 20 years and it'd be a damning indictment of the games industry as a whole if, across all genres, we never overcame one title on the Nintendo 64.

I wouldn't argue with that. I have personal favorites which might be higher, but OoT is part of a "top 6" for me which are basically all on the same level.
