It’s time for Zelda: Skyward Sword to take the crown from Ocarina of Time [BestNintendo3DSGames.com]

[From BestNintendo3DSGames]

As much as I loved Wind Waker and Majora’s Mask (and hated Twilight Princess with its dark, dull, lifeless landscapes), Ocarina of Time will always have a place in my heart as the best game ever made.

Until now.

It would be incredible if Skyward sword took the crown from Ocarina of time, not long now =)

TruthbeTold4617d ago

I'm as excited as anyone for this game, but for the writer to approach it from a 'I haven't played it yet, but it's time to supplant Ocarina of Time' standpoint is just misguided. My opinion anyway...

Z:SWS has to be relay incredible to top Ocarina of time

BinaryMind4616d ago

The author first states OoT had a sort of "magical" quality as the reason it is such an amazing game. Fine with that, but I guess all it takes are a few glowing reviews to make the author believe Skyward is already the best game ever. Why does Skyward even have to be better than OoT? I'm fine if it's just an amazing game.

TruthbeTold4616d ago

I don't mind if it ends up being better, and would actually love that. But people saying such things before they've even played it is a little disturbing.

Skyward Sword+ Motion plus x Nintendo's historic development skills = an epic experience.

I would be surprised if skyward sword wasn't better than ocarina of time, this is the biggest Zelda game to date. And its packed full of content. Edge gave it a 10db and I've heard nothing but good things from it. I can't wait to play it for myself

Lord_Sloth4616d ago

I shall hold my opinion until I play the game.

Also, I seem to be the only dood who thinks of Majora's before OoT.

LightofDarkness4616d ago

Nah, lots of people prefer MM to OOT. It just didn't get as widely publicised and thus is not regarded as the better game. Plus I think it pissed off some Zelda purists.

You forgot one and it's a doozy. The weapon is kindness in undertale. :) defeats countless enemies.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the anti-Breath of the Wild

Polygon: "To get back to the way Ocarina made us feel, it was necessary to reject almost everything about it."

Ocarina of Time changed my life forever, such a masterpiece

Zeldafan64175d ago

Hard to believe it's 25 years old already.

The feeling this game gave me the first time i had my hands on it is indescribable.. i still get the chill from that day..
botw is like a spin off of the series.. it’s fun but with many flaws and the most important which is Zelda formula isn’t there..

FinalFantasyFanatic174d ago

I can't even remember how many times I played through OoT, I finished that game, and collected everything so many times.

Vits175d ago

I generally agree with the author here. However, if I had to point out a single game as the 'anti-Breath of the Wild,' that would be Majora's Mask. Pretty much everything in that game is interconnected, relies on something that the player must have done previously, is timed, and can be considered a puzzle in itself.

gold_drake175d ago

but still considered the best of the seties.

i would have liked botw to be more like ocarina.

25 years from today whatever Zelda is out people would too be looking fondly at Breath of the Wild.

Ah the more simple times of the 2020s.

It isn't...


Zelda: Ocarina of Time - A Legend 25 Years in the Making

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time debuted 25 years ago, forever changing the face of video games and becoming a legend of its own.

I used a guide to beat part of it but some of the rest myself, still enjoyed it regardless. Too bad they didn't stick with this kind of gameplay for the rest of the series as I would prefer it over what they're doing now.

TheBrainZ207d ago

A definitive moment in video game history. Played it countless times, and Zelda was the best reason to own an N64.

FinalFantasyFanatic207d ago

I played through OoT so many times on the 64, then I bought it on the 3DS before the Eshop shut down. I wish we could have a Zelda collection like we did for Mario, I still can't believe that never happened.
