The 10-year-old videogame for the Nintendo 64 games console helped usher in a new era of 3D gaming.
It is also one of only five games ever to receive a 10 out of 10 review score from Edge magazine.
Five of the top 10 titles were made only for Nintendo machines, including Super Mario 64, in third spot.
The full list of 100 titles has been compiled for a special edition of Edge magazine.
Tony Mott, editor-in-chief of Edge, said: "If you were new to video games and were going to go out and buy 100 games to make an instant collection, then these would be the games to buy."
He added: "Ocarina of Time is nearly 10 years old, but its position at the top slot in Edge's 100 Best
Good news for fans of the game I guess, and shows that old games can still be great. Btw, is this on Virtual Console, as I'm thinking of getting a Wii, and have *never* played this game (primarily cos I was 6 when it came out ). But I'm not going to buy an N64 just for this game (I have no interest in Mario, sorry).
