Forums - Gaming Discussion - Wow, we sure have some rabid OoT fans.

Ok, I get that a lot of people are upset about GTA4 getting a better overall review score then OoT, but to then try and combat that by releasing a new review of OoT and giving it a 10?

Thanks for reviewing a 10 year old game... your a little late :p

They do retro reviews.

The rEVOLution is not being televised

meh how stupid. you no say that them are just hatters who dont want the crown to go to a violent hardcore game lol. well OoT is going to have to get a few more reviews with a 100% rating to beat th ps3 version of GTA IV

@TheRealMafoo, By using "We" in your title you make it sound like you're accusing the VG Chartz community. Please don't.

see this thread for why "we" don't think that


@obieslut, OoT is both violent and hardcore. That's not the reason.

I use "we" to mean the gaming community in general... and yes, VGChartz has some rabid OoT fans as well. I created a thread where I said, by todays standards, GTA4 (along with many other games) is better then OoT. I got flamed for 3 pages.

I would link it, but I don't want another three pages of flaming :p

VGChartz does have some rabid OoT fans by the way. The last couple of days have made that pretty clear.

Honestly, this game is overrated even by Zelda standards. I had a lot more fun with Majora's Mask. I bought the game on day one, and I definitely enjoyed OoT, but it doesn't deserve its position as the #1 ranked game of all time, IMO. Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 64 both deserve that spot more than OoT.

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

I don't think that was because of GTA IV since it was published 12/04. GTA IV hadn't even gotten it's first review scores back then, right? Or maybe it had gotten those first two tens, I don't remember.

I am currently sigless.

The whole argument is that OoT was called "the perfect game" and has aged very well. Ppl simply don't want a game that isn't perfect to supplant a perfect game. If a game is worthy then it should be placed at #1, but if it does have issues, then can it be called #1?

The thread I posted was pre-GTA4 release. I'm not saying there aren't rabid OoT fanboys. Given a clear head there was a general consensus that most people didn't think OoT is the best game ever, and for that matter not even the best Zelda ever.

@TheRealMafoo, Of course if you create a thread that is full of flamebait such as GTA4 vs. OoT you're going to draw out the rabid fanboys. I'm not suprised there were 3 pages of flaming. It would happen to anyone..

Either its truly a weird timed retro-review or it is indeed a pathetic attempt to get it above GTA4 ...
