... Wait... is this website mainly Nintendo fanboys?





... I kid. Crash 2 is the best game ever, FF7 is one of my favourites ever but of the list, Link to Past. Mainly because generally, even if I've only played it like once, it's generally a better game.

 

EDIT: And now I see the poll results so far... see first sentence. :P



Hmm, pie.

That's an awful poll, I am sorry but there is no other way to describe it...
And without being rude, the result shows how dumb a big part of the VGChartz community is imo. Of course Breath of the Wild got the most points because it's the most recent recent release of them.



From that list, Super Mario Galaxy, though Breath of the Wild is pretty close. There is 1 Zelda game I'd rate higher than Galaxy, but that wasn't on the list.

It certainly wasn't at the beginning of the decade. I guess times have changed?

The lack of the Witcher 3 and the presence of Skyrim is sad. CD project > Bugthesda every day. Especially since Skyrim was pretty boring and the gameplay was bad.

It does feel that way sometimes. 



Overall, great job with this list! It's not strange at all with so many Zelda since they are consistently amazing. The only game I really missed was Panzer Dragoon Saga, otherwise, awesome list.



I dont see why people complain about the list. Beside Super Mario Galaxy and maybe Super Metroid, all those games listed here have been consistenly talked about as greatest game ever made in the time of their release and even years later



Oh shit, it's between Super Mario Galaxy and Final Fantasy VII for me. Very hard for me to choose between the two. I guess I'll go with Final Fantasy VII.



Of the games in the list, it's a toss-up between Super Metroid and LttP. As with poll #4, I'm giving my vote to Super Metroid just because Zelda is too over-represented.

Personally, I've never considered Zelda my favorite series. Not even close. I don't have the massive nostalgia for it like many do, and I haven't even played every game in the series. To keep it as short as possible, I really enjoyed LttP. It's the best 2D action-adventure game ever, a crowning achievement of the 16-bit era, and it expands on and perfects the 2D Zelda formula to such an extent that it's hard to go back and play the original, which now seems like a very rough, basic prototype (I feel much the same in regards to Super Metroid vs the original Metroid). LttP is longer than the norm for games of its era, but was long enough to feel like a proper adventure and short enough to where I feel I can replay it regularly without having to invest too much time.

But OoT did not click with me back when it was a new game in 1998, a problem I had with the vast majority of early 3D games. I can't remember why, exactly. Maybe it was the controls or the visuals or just the changes made to facilitate 3D gameplay. But for whatever reason, I wasn't impressed like the critics were (though I've been meaning to giving it a second chance, and I really should pick up the 3DS version sometime soon). Because of my feelings towards OoT, as well as other factors, I wouldn't bother with another Zelda game until Wind Waker HD for the Wii U, and I also bought BotW. Both are pretty good, but they have issues that keep them from being worthy of being included in my personal top 20 list, though they'd probably qualify for the 21-50 range of the top 50.
