Galaxy has now dropped back to number two behind OOT as they continue to aggregate more reviews. Not too shabby though.

I know I'm playing it right now. Going for all 120 stars. Such a great and fun game. It puts a smile on my face.

it was higher when it had the same number of reviews anyway. oot has the advantage of only being reviewed about 31 times.

back then games weren't reviewed by nearly as many outlets. Now we have every gaming blog on the web throwing in their two cents. So you're right, it's not a direct comparison.

In the end of the day, who cares if it's "first", "second" or "last". It's a great game.
