Ocarina of Time. Is it the best game ever?

I've heard it be said that the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time really is the best game ever made. I've even heard this quote from a friend, "There are two types of gamers in the world; those who think Ocarina of Time is the best game ever, and there are those who are wrong."

So... Is it the best game ever made?

hmm.

it's not my favorite Zelda, but the impact it had not only on the series but games and gamers in general is undeniable. in terms of its design for the time, it really is masterful. if we're really going to have this conversation and not let personal preference get in the way, then we're going to need some criteria for what it takes to be "the best game ever."

i do think that OoT sits in the highest tier of the pantheon of great games, but if it truly is the greatest ... i don't know. one of the things that always bothered me about it was that while it was an amazing transition from 2D to 3D for the series, structure-wise it wasn't revolutionary at all. i think that fact alone holds it back from the "best ever."

Siberianhusky89 We have a Nintendo Fan in the Making

It's one of the best games ever, I'm not sure about absolute best, but after seeing the list of games considered the best games ever, I can live with OOT being the best game ever, why?

Games considered as the "best game ever": Final Fantasy 7, Super Mario RPG, Earthbound (****in Super Smash Bros.), Super Smash Bros Brawl., the list goes on... It's horrible really. Earthbound is one of my favorite RPGs by the way for those who think I hate it or something, I don't hate Earthbound, I just hate the fanboys that rape Earthbound with their lies and exaggerations.

If I'm to talk about a game, I want to show respect to it, point out it's flaws and it's strengths alike and take it for what it is, not because Super Smash Bros. influences idiots with an idiotic idea. It's like this basically.

Let us say I composed a song. Some Beatles fans don't like my song or haven't even heard the song. John Lennon (If he was alive during the time or whatnot) or Paul McCartney then states they love my song. Then all the sudden Beatles fans are crazed for my song, even some who haven't listened to it.

Get the drift?

yeah that happens to a lot of good games. final fantasy vii would be my personal pick for best game ever, but its fans and spinoffs have raped its asshole to the point where i can never look at it the same way.

but at the time, in 1997, it was the most amazing thing i had ever seen, and remains probably the greatest video game experience of my life. sure i was only 10 at the time, being very impressionable and not the cynic that we all become after adolescence, but the fact remains.

Ausden is an unknown quantity at this point

This is one of those games that will forever hold a spot on my shelf as an all around outstanding game. It's so good, that if mine stopped working I would actually fork over up to $100 for it. It's that good!

Twilight Princess wasn't all that fun. It didn't drag me into the game and there was way too much story. It was just so... Bleckh, I'm not sure how to explain it, but I didn't really enjoy it all that much. Some of the dungeons were more annoying than fun and running into the field wasn't fun either, neither was the town.

It's a good game but I don't think it's the best. Even Twilight Princess surpassed it in my opinion.
