i need a game engine

i need a game engine simaler to, or exactly the same as The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Majoras Mask, Wind Waker, And both versions of Twilight Princess, my plan is to modify , and combine them into a better engine, if not i will make my own from scratch that will be almost the same, but i figure  it will be easier to combine the existing engines, than to write one from scratch

Blender.org is a great free website where you can use other peoples games they made and your own new games. My friend told me how he could do something that takes a person 2 days takes him 2 hours!!

ok, kudos to frollard for longest answer reply reply thread i have seen as of yet, and thanks for referring me to Steam and Moon Base Alpha (Which is made with the UnReal engine), but the best answer goes to jbaker22 for referring me to blender, a free to use commercially, no charge game engine, that i will examine, and modify to suit my needs, from that, i will engineer an engine similar to the OoT engine, making the locked proprietary assets for the zelda games moot point

unreal engine is free for development...all the game assets for the zelda games are proprietary.

i kinda meant a similar, engine, like someone trying to copy it, since i will be making a better one from scratch, i wondered if anyone had the other engines, so i could study how they work, combine good features, and take out bad ones, to make a whole new engine, but thanks 4 the info, where can i find the unreal engine?
I gave you the defacto answer (there are plenty)...

if you are unwilling to search to find "unreal engine download" then you are probably unable to put the effort forth to learn to code a high level game.

i looked it up, i was just wondering where the specific engine was, i wanted to get it from the source, not a 3rd party site, and did you see the warning underneath the letter box when you commented?
I firmly believe that I was factual and nice.

Not being a smartass:
I just typed unrealengine.com (didn't search it, just guessed the name)
clicked developer network
...and scrolled down to unreal development kit.

I found it in one guess not because I knew, but because I typed 2 words. I FIRMLY believe that you could have found it with trivial effort.

i did find it with trivial effort, what i did NOT find with trivial effort, was their policy, which states that if i use it for commercial purposes, which i am planning to do so, it take a $99 fee , and then a percentage after that. i will write my own engine, and it will be better than any other. i merely wanted to research other engines to see what to keep, and what to throw away, and in the end have a better engine
True, nobody is gonna give you their product so you can make money with it -- or at least, very few will -- no CC AT SA license here

What you can expect is that its free to develop/learn on, but if you wanna sell/distribute you gotta pay - totally fair.
Exercise in futility:

I tried a few searches just to see if it was possible:
