Despite the critical acclaim of Breath of the Wild Ocarina of Time is still a better game
No doubt about that! So many great dungeons, and an incredibly rich game
Ocarina of Time is a mid tier Zelda game that only ranks as high as it does due to nostalgia. Both MM and TP are better...and ALttP is on another level. There...I said it...FIGHT ME!
I like Majora's as much as OoT, but Twilight Princess isn't better IMO. It's got some cool parts but it's basically a rehash of OoT.
And OoT is basically ALttP rehash. TP did what OoT did, but better IMO.
Big flaw is OoT is a completely 3D game that was the first to do what it was doing. BotW is Elder Scrolls Zelda with one of the worse Weapon durability systems I've ever used in a game. Should have went the Dark Cloud 1 route if they wanted breaking weapons and make repairing items scarce. Nothing actually innovative about BotW, Everything it does was done before. OoT was a first in many respects
You gotta be joking 😂 So oot scored so high in 98 due to Nostalgia? Oot sat a new standard for 3d adventure games and revolutionized the genre.. Same thing Mario64 or. Tomb Raider 1 did. Oot added so many new things, and 3d added an insane depth to the game, which link2thepast didn't have. I think link 2 the past is still my favorite ever due to nostalgia, but zelda 64 is a true monster back in the day.
@bouzebbal OoT was great and innovative for its time, thats why it scores a 98. Thats does not mean it is better than every game in the world today. Half of the Zelda games out there are better. @Teflon02 BotW was innovative in a way that combined a lot of open world aspects in a way that had never been done before. That is why you have other gamea trying to copy it now. I have played a lot of open world games, and none had the magic that BotW has. Iy truly deserves the score it got. It does have room for improvement. My biggest thing would be that as a Zelda game, I would like to see the return of traditional dungeons. Here is to hoping with BotW2!
And The Wind Waker is better than both of them in my opinion.
I disagree. But I can see an argument for it for sure.Much more so than breath of the wild.
Wind Waker was amazing! Definitely casting my vote for Link to The Past as the best though... I just couldn't get into Breath of The Wild unfortunately.
WW, OoT or ALttP, any one of those are your fav and I ain't mad at that. My fav is OoT but moreso a tie between ALttP and OoT that I slightly give OoT
i 100000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000 000000000% agree
Botw was good. Would have liked even a little more of the series tropes. Side questing felt empty. The rewards were just shrine locations or crafting items. Both very useful to be sure. But still, it would have been nice to get some unique tools... hell, even just an empty bottle. Something.
That's not hard considering BotW is the worst Zelda game.
I agree actually. I'm still trying to finish the game because I can never get enough motivation to keep playing. The only upside was that Nintendo games stay high in value so when I do decide to sell it I'll get some money back.
I still cant wrap my mind around the fact that BotW reviewed so well. Its the most boring Zelda game I have played, and I have played most of them.
The 4 dungeons were so monotone in color/textures and even in the gameplay. They don't even come close to OoT dungeons. And the whole world felt so empty.
I dunno, there was so much to explore. I'll never forget the first time in BOTW I crested a hill and saw this massive labyrinth just floating out in the water. I logged so many hours and there was always something new hiding around a different corner. If you look at the N64 game when you are out in Hyrule Field, tell me the game doesn't feel empty at times too. Not to mention the map on BOTW is about 100x bigger.
Is this a hot take? Because imo that statement is pretty obvious. OoT and Majora's Mask are better than BoTW.
And that matters why?
Clicks. Make a controversial topic in a tribal and binary way to make it seem that there is only one option that is clearly superior than the other one.
Yeah, when everyone knows all Zelda games are equally the best games ever made.
I'll stick with Twilight Princess I love Breath of the Wild and Ocarina but I still prefer Ocarina more over Breath of the Wild Gannon was just to easy to beat. Exploring was fun in Breath of the Wild but I kind of found it repetitive in some areas.
Breath of the wild was shite. Id ratber play the orignial nes game than that muck. Weapons breaking. Nah ill pass of that gimmick.
Everyone know that a Link to the Past is the best :P Ocarina of Time is basically a 3D remake of it, but with less depth.
I'm with you here. LttP is the best.
I love both, but OoT felt way more epic to me, especially when you became adult Link and the endgame.
Strange considering every 3D Zelda after majoras mask has been pretty terrible.
I started out really digging botw, I guess cause I hadn't played a zelda game since wind waker on gamecube and that was a long time ago though oot was a real turning point for me with games, such gorgeous classic, ah the feels, anyway as I was saying botw gave me a sense of that zelda and Nintendo charm that only they can and there were some beautiful moments but it did start to grind, the world just felt too empty and repetitive a lot of the time, I started to lose interest and never finished it eventually trading it and my switch in towards PS5, I still kind of regret not finishing it first though, maybe when the next switch comes around I'll dive back in. Man I hope they decide to put some power in the next one, it would be great to be able to play Nintendo games with a bit of oomph.
