Starting off on the right level game

I've just started Zelda OOT for the first time (in Japanese) and wow! This is everything I needed a Japanese game to be from the beginning. I've been studying for 11 months now and have battled my way through Final fantasy VII, IX, X and XV. While I love these games and had fun doing them, it was pretty brutal, especially when you come across the walls of text that these games need to advance the story.

OOT has been amazing though, fairly short story sections. Furigana, gaps between words to make it obvious where they start and end. Also a lot of the gameplay is puzzle based without the need for much language.

What I'm saying is if I had a time machine, I would tell my younger self to play this and hold off on FFVII as the first game!
