Is Ocarina of Time still the greatest game of all time??

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Is Ocarina of Time still the greatest game of all time??

to me ocarina was the best game of all time until mgs4 came along..the game just had so many great moments, like the intense battles in the middle east or fighting alongside rebels in south america and the slow motion parts during the chase in europe and the entire level on shadow moses which reminded u of the origins of this amazing series...and who can forget the microwave hallway scene in the last act (which gamespot awarded the best moment of 2008)...for me it was a tough decision choosing mgs4 over OOT but i felt that this was finally the game that beat it and it was time to pass the torch on...so yes for me mgs4 is the greatest of all time

@ Phrancheyez: yes im receiving what ur saying. I do believe opinions matter alot to..so as patterns in videogames. posting chartz and all that yadda yadda brings a message. For developers is important. It lets them know whether to continue the recipe or change something.

At least it gives developers such as nintendo an idea of the kinds of videogames consumers seems to be looking forward for the most...So they can continue with their formula behind that specific game.

Sometimes majority rules.  OOT and Majoras mask were an inspiration.

Now if it goes down by opinion then i put my own just for the sake: A true videogame is not only a good videogame, but a true inspiration to designers as well.  Any videogame that gets admired by consumers and inspires is a trully masterpiece.  Is why i say OOT and Mario 64 sets the path.



Oot is.



 

 

@phranchayez
Before you go on and on, the question isnt "the best", where everyone will have an opinion, but " the greatest", where you'll have to acknowledge that a game is so because of the widespread high critical acclaim and impact it has, and i really dont see any candidate better than OoT for that



"The accumulated filth of all their sex and murders will foam up about their waist and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

 ....and I'll look down and whisper  "no."

People claim oot to be the 2nd best in the series can anyone confirm this?

New people getting into the Legend of Zelda series will say that Majora's Mask or The Wind Waker are better than Ocarina of Time, but that's just non-sense. People saying that A Link to the Past tops OOT... well, they're almost right to be honest, but ALTTP didn't have as much impact as OOT did for its time.

Majora's Mask is built on the same engine as OOT, and it barely brought anything new. It was more annoying than anything to be honest (especially when trying to get 100% in the game. Some of the worst design decisions I've ever seen). The Wind Waker was good, but there are some flaws in the gameplay (like a last minute fetch quest and other things), which OOT don't have at all.

Oh man, it hurts to try finding bad things to say about Zelda games...! @_@



Random game thought :
Why is Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 getting so much hate? We finally get a real game and they're not even satisfied... I'm starting to hate the gaming community so f****** much...

Watch my insane gameplay videos on my YouTube page!

No the game is kinda boring and is very outdated. But the game was surpuressed by pikmin back in 2001. Sorry its the truth Flame sheild up

You are going to need a better flame shield than that. No correct spelling in your shit trolling either. Outdated? Try playing any PS1 game. Boring? You might want to play MGS again.


But I don't like stealth games. And ever heard of opnion. That's what I feel about the game. No need to hate on a person who
has a diffrent taste

Hey, If you wanted to play the "thats my opinion" card, then ya shouldn't have made the bolded statement.


When I said that I meant in my opinoin not that it was fact. Those that explain anything?

Relax, Do you know what disgress means?

Barely brought anything new?  MM is the most original and creative Zelda that I have ever played.

You can play as a Deku Scrub, a Goron, or a Zora.  Other masks also modify Link, like the Bunny Hood, which makes him run faster.  The people in the game actually have a life, and go about their day whether you interact with them or not.  Most other games the NPCs just stand around waiting for you to talk to them.  The three day mechanic that allows this very detailed world is also quite new.

I would definitely agree that OoT has had a much bigger influence on gaming, but to say that MM barely did anything new is just wrong.

I really hope you get permabanned again megaman.  Threads and people like this bring this whole community known as VGC down a notch.

On topic:
No, MGS4 nor Zelda:OoT are the best of all time. There is no best of all time, accept it and move on.

I hope you get permabanned youre nobody!!

I agree with Phrancheyez for both things.

1: megaman should be perma banned, and

2. there is no best game of all time (i just have favorites, it doesnt mean that they are the best to everyone)
