I totally know what you mean. When I got to go back to hyrule (sort of) in the wind waker, the experience was amazing. And revisiting the worn down temple of time in Twilight Princess just blew the level of magical nostalgia out the roof. I'll never forgot how personal Ocarina of Time was to me. You just felt so...connected with the game. I'd even say that walking up to the master sword in OoT for the first time ranks on my top ten list of life experiences, dearer a memory than most things that I've actually experienced. ...which is sad, but true.
