Ocarina of Time: Nostalgia Vs. Superiority

ZI writes: Earlier last week I decided to go back and play both the N64 and 3DS versions of Ocarina of Time to see if you could see Ganon’s Castle from Hyrule Field. I got a bit caught up in the moment and played both for a bit, and noticed they felt very different from one another, something was off. Earlier this week, I thought to myself, “I think I’ll play Ocarina of Time again,” and instead of picking up my 3DS I went straight for my N64. I noticed part-way through the opening and realized I had the game on the 3DS, so why don’t I just play the superior 3DS version instead? The answer is simple, Ocarina of Time 3D holds no nostalgic value for me.

The 3ds version is way better good gameplay is what makes you nostalgic in the first place if the n64 version didn't exist it would still a be a timeless game. to me the fact it's a great remake is more important then silly nostalgia.

Personally, I will take Nostalgia anyday of the week. Nostalgia, by definition, is timeless. OoT for 3DS was an excellent tribute, but it's not the original game (1998 GOTY).

Super Mario Bros. 1, 2 and 3 vs Super Mario Bros. AllStars are a perfect examples. Yes the 3DS graphics look amazing... now, but 10 years from now, the original will still be more highly regarded.

yeah, point taken. when i hear Mario Bros. theme from part 1, i instantly think of the 8-bit mario, not the SNES version
