Some "friend" recently told me I wasn't a Sheep anymore, because I didn't make threads on System Wars anymore. Well, I think that's just stupid! I am still a hardcore 100% Sheep, I am the best Sheep there ever was on System Wars, and probably one of the last remaining ones from the dark Pre-Gerstmangate days.

To prove this, I'll prove my point.

Skyward Sword is better than Skyrim.

Why?

What do you mean why?

ONE

1

The game looks good.

Take a gander at that.

Does Skyrim look like that?

No.

It looks like this:

I don't even know what that's supposed to be.


TWO

2

The game doesn't break by playing it too long.

If you have the PS3 version of Skyrim, the game will break apart the farther you play into the game, and end up playing the game at an average of an amazing 3 frames per second.

That is some quality workmanship.


THREE

3

It's a rehash.

"bu...bu...ZELDA IS A REHASH!" No, it's not. Especially not compared to Skyrim.

We waited FIVE years between Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, and what did we get? A game that controlled compeltely different and was structured in a completely different way.

You wait FIVE years between Oblivion and Skyrim, and what do you get?

"Ooh! I can use my left hand now!"


FOUR

4

We already had dragons last gen.

That's from Twilight Princess.

And it had far better combat than the jokes Skyrim has.


IN CONCLUSION

I'm right.

And before you say "you're a biased Sheep with no credibility", take a gander at my sig.

What's that?

Oh yeah.


A PSN CARD


Oblitirated.

Even though this probably isn't a serious thread, and I haven't played Skrim, I can say I agree with most of it.

Also, Old Man Willy in the title sounds creepy as hell.

#3 Posted by Crazyguy105 (9511 posts) -

Sadly, Skyward Sword's biggest problems is the controls.

#4 Posted by GamerEye (1670 posts) -

I always thought you were a sheep.

#5 Posted by userzero (167 posts) -
Thanks for clearing that up, Old Man Willy.

I applaud you good sir ! And I was around pre-gers whatever, but wasn't a poster, just a lurker :(

I don't care about your opinion.

I do, however, care about exploration and mods. Skyrim>Zelda

Crazyguy105

I personally had very little issue with them.

Yah, I doubt Willy cares about what you care about either lol

#12 Posted by BPoole96 (22784 posts) -

You're so awesome :shock:

#13 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16669 posts) -

I still need to raise the question:

Why are these two games being compared? They both take place in a fantasy setting... And that's about it for similarities.

#14 Posted by LORD_BLACKGULT (947 posts) -

babycakin

Duh...

Everyone on here does not truly care about anyone elses opinions, and they continually post their opinionseven though no one cares.

I'm just trying to fit in. :(

#15 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34140 posts) -

The OP to end all debates right here.

#16 Posted by Shinobishyguy (22416 posts) -

Both games are pretty hard to compare but I will say that Zelda takes a dump all over skyrim in terms of gameplay variety.

Pratically all the major quest lines I've done so far boil down to exploring a cave and killing a target or bringing something back to the leader.

9.0>>>>>>>>>>7.5

Therefore, Skyrim>>>>>>>>>Skyward Sword

#19 Posted by TheFallenDemon (13932 posts) -

Zelda struck new ground in conservative gaming with the world's first openly homosexual and left-handed protagonist.

Until Skyward Sword ruined everything.

Incorrect, they also both have "Sky" in their name.

Goddamn I missed you on here, Willy.

owning a console you bash still doesn't stop you from being a fanboy, i own a 360 and i'm on ps3/pc side while the 360 can go f**** itself

but this is Willy's opinion that Zelda is better!? Everything Willy says is gospel. :S
#25 Posted by madsnakehhh (14141 posts) -

Couldn't be more agree with you good sir :)

#26 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34140 posts) -

I wonder how many people will take this seriously...

#27 Posted by dr-professional (480 posts) -

ONE You took a screen of building in SS and a rocky enviorment in Skyrim. Not even close to fair.

TWO The PS3 isn't the only version. Also Zelda has a pretty interesting bug to as hard as it is to get it. But still this one makes sense.

THREE Zelda does not control completely differently. But it is different. But the structure is the same **** As for Skyrim, you could say similar. It's debatable.

FOUR There were dragons before TP but you use TP as a defense for dragons already? Same year too I believe. Also Zelda combat in 3D has always had issues (Which I call broken, although fans will take that as an entire different meaning..)

CONCLUSION You're not right, it's an opiniona with a few of those. Oh and having a PSN card in a sig means nothing. 1. It could be fake. 2. That doesn;t automatically stop you from being a fanboy. 3. The PS3 is probably not yours.

#28 Posted by GunSmith1_basic (9763 posts) -
I agree that Skyrim is a big-time rehash. All the ways that it is new are not that meaningful. They just took the level of detail from their recent Fallout games and applied that to Oblivion. I disagree with you Wily about SS looking better. The Monet style helps but it is still very grainy. I like lively feeling of Skyrim environments, even if they are a bit choppier.

Who shouldn't take this serious...i mean after all, is the pure true, Willy even post some facts there.

#30 Posted by babycakin (1400 posts) -

Both games has its pro's and con's and it's pretty much comparing apples to oranges. Both give the player a different gameplay experience.

#31 Posted by WithoutGraceXII (1797 posts) -
Or.....they're both good.
#32 Posted by dontshackzmii (6026 posts) -

the combat is way better in zelda

#33 Posted by caseypayne69 (5388 posts) -
Zelda has a glitch that makes the game unfinishable if you don't do something right.
#34 Posted by locopatho (20177 posts) -
Skyward Sword is a great game, especially after TP. It's still nowhere near the awesome of Zelda 1, Link TO The Past, Ocarina, or Windwaker, which were each arguably the biggest, prettiest and all round best games of their vonsole gen however. Skyrim is better in just about every way.

aye

And Skyrim can crash and make you lose entire save games.

#37 Posted by Renegade_Fury (17054 posts) -

You don't need to be a sheep to say Skyward Sword is better than Skyrim, but just have good taste. Still a great thread though.

#38 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
1. I own 5 Zelda games. 2. Haven't finish any of them due to getting bored with the game long before finishing it. 3. I have no interest in playing another Zelda game. 4. Well a guess that's all. :P
#39 Posted by XVision84 (13626 posts) -

Zelda better than Skyrim? Come on now, we both know that's impossible.

Since when can you dual-wield firebolt spells in Zelda?

[spoiler] I haven't played Zelda and I'm sure it's amazing, but my System Wars instincts are telling me to bash it. I must give in :( [/spoiler]

#40 Posted by Maroxad (8036 posts) -

Apples and Oranges.

I agree though, at least Skyward Sword does something well.

Can you make your character in skyrim take a sh*t like you can in Skyward sword, though?

game. Set. Match.

What is it with Wii games and pooping. No More Heroes also. Though Fallout 3 let you drink out of a toilet... so there's that...

Don't forget the stunning feces physics in Duke Nudem Foranal.

#45 Posted by Goyoshi12 (9687 posts) -

I have nothing against either games since I have not played it but...couldn't you at least give Skyrim some edge? I mean, it's not THAT bad. It's almost as bad as IGN's Dark Soul's VS. Skyrim article and god that was horrible because A: It wasn't fair to Skyrim and B: It set up the stupid platform for all those Dark Soul's VS. Skyrim threads here in SW. :evil:

#46 Posted by heeeeeeeeeweeee (2409 posts) -

I will tell you why hexen is better than both.

It's a fps focused on melee combat in the dark ages and it has deathmatch and cooperative support.

zelda and skyrim doesnt have those.

Lets be honest here, Zelda 1 has aged like crap.

and :lol: at skyrim being better in "every way".

There are several aspects where SS completely obliderates skyrim

You can play a nearly bug free Bethesda game ever since they started releasing mod tools :P

Mods. Possibilities are endless ;)

And besides, Zelda dragons aren't nearly as cool as Skyrim dragons.

Are we including all platforms on the skyrim discussion because for me, the game looks absolutely wonderful: (screens from my comp)
