I promise I am not joking. I admit I didn't play the game originally in 1998, but I tryed playing it in 2005, tryed playing it in the 3DS version, I promise u when I say I don't understand anything about this game.

Despite the fact that everyone says its the greatest game of all time. Anyone that thinks like me, or have an explanation?

You don't like the game out of spite.

If you didn't play the game during its time you would hardly understand.

So it is bad for todays standards then at least
#11 Posted by DraugenCP (8470 posts) -

You first played it in 2005, that's why. Subsequent 3D Zelda's have all borrowed excessively from Ocarina of Time (and from A Link to the Past if you go even further back), so if you go back to OoT after having already played through more recent Zeldas, it's hard to see what all the fuss was about. But I can assure you that when I first played Ocarina of Time in 1998, I was absolutely amazed,

Even by today's standards it is a decent game; and still a masterpiece for gamers who appreciate retro games.

I love the game but it's just your preference and there is nothing wrong with that. You probably fall into the group of people who think alttp is the best Zelda game.

You're fond of Zelda II? *laughs*

I think ALttP is the best Zelda game; I still adore OoT.

You simply have a different opinion, like all of us.

There are many games that people say are super amazing and I think "what are they smoking" such as WOW or Halo 3. Doesn't make them wrong, doens't make me wrong, it's just personal opinion.

#17 Posted by DarkLink77 (31695 posts) -

Because you have terrible taste in Zelda games. I mean, that much is obvious.

You're welcome.

Now go and sin no more.

Really? I thought it was pretty fun. Not better than it's predecessor, but still fun.

Is the game being terrible the general consensus from everyone?

No idea. You're an enigma.

Not really, it's just polarizing.

I'm wondering how anyone can be found of any zelda game to be honnest

#30 Posted by MLBknights58 (5015 posts) -

Probably because every Zelda game besides Windwaker has surpassed it?

Did you mean especially Wind Waker? Because if not, your sentence is horribly inaccurate.

Because as you just pointed out you're not under the 1998 spell like everyone else. OoT was great...in 1998. In 2005 it was not great, in 2012 it sure as hell isn't close to great.

Wind Waker is the worst of the bunch on a dungeon design standpoint. About the only edge that game has over the other ones is the art direction and overworld. If anything his statement was on point. Al though I'd still rather play WW than OoT.

Well... thanks?

I suppose I should elaborate more on my position, but a Zelda debate seems rather boring. I will ask, however, if you enjoyed Twilight Princess.

I find Twilight Princess to be OoT on steroids. A 2007 release, essentially.

because you're a hipster that loves to go against public opinion? Because there is no way that you would like other 3D Zelda games and not OOT since all of them are based on its formula.

#44 Posted by OniStrat (1800 posts) -

Because of some sort of personal grudge against it? How should we know?

It's weird though that someone would like all the other Zelda games and not OoT, considering OoT is the most Zelda-ish of the bunch (together with ALttP and the original of course).
