Forums - Gaming Discussion - the ultimate vs thread: Final Fantasy VII vs. Zelda: Ocarina of Time

here it is.  one of the biggest rivalries for the greatest game of all time.  many people say that whichever game you play first, you generally like more and i think thats the truth.  ff7 was actually one of the first games i ever played and is still my favorite and i think its near perfect in nearly every way for its time.  now i do not discredit anything from ocarina of time, it is pretty damn good too, probably in my top 5, but theres just something lacking in it that just makes me like ff7 better.  i think perhaps the dialogue is the biggest thing.  ocarina of time has a pretty g-rated dialogue and it makes the game generally feel less serious as far as the world being in grave danger goes.  also, the songs in ff7 give me goose bumps.  however, every one just loves that tune when you find a new item or triforce piece in ocarina of time.  ff7 has sold 9.72 million and ocarina of time has sold 7.60 million according to vgchartz, but for me, the hardly does either game justice.  so what do you think is better?

EDIT: can someone tell me how to make a poll

I liked both of them alot.


It was definitely the golden age of gaming before all the FPS craze started.


Though I imagine OOT will win this one because it's cool to hate on FF7.

"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials
