Although Wright`s games are absolutely coolarific, and he`s definitely had huge influence, I think pioneering the platform game puts Miyamoto ahead.
I think the flames you got were because your original answer was a bit acerbic, even if it wasn`t intended so!I`d reject the claim that I was young at the time it came out, I`d been playing games for a while, but I still remember the effect Ocarina had on me. I would agree the story is a bit cliché, but it`s the storytelling that is the most compelling aspect the game for me. The plot twists, the sweeping cut-scenes and endless subquests were delivered perfectly, and the fact that these were new innovations in gaming only intensified the magic I felt when I played.
Other games may have emulated this, but an update in graphics or lengthening the story or adding "immersion" does`t make a game "better" in my humble opinion.For me, Ocarina is timeless. It`s like films, or books. Star Wars is my favourite film, despite it`s age and graphics.
Which game is your favourite then?
PS I loved Majora`s Mask`s darker tones, but it was too subtley
Augh. And, Ocarina of Time was pretty damn awesome, but, I must say I enjoyed Majora`s mask more at the time. The characters had a lot more life to them, they were better designed and more realistic.
LoZ: Twilight Princess schools them all, however.
I`ve seen `documentaries` like this before, all they do is make you realize that video games had to start somewhere.
Ocarina of Time: soooooo awesome. My first Zelda game and the one that got me hooked. Definitely the best game ever made.
I did wish they said more about other stuff like Sega though. Miyamoto is great but, I wanted to hear about his competition as well =/
I wish he were still closely involved with Zelda, but I have great confidence in Aonuma. :D
And after Wii Music, maybe it`s best he, uh... took a break to recharge his, uhm... creative juices. :|
There are many many great games. But Ocarina of Time is timeless, and I`m not sure any game will ever surpass the indescribable magic it possesses.
"Ocarina of Time as greatest game ever? You have to be kidding me. Great game, sure. But play it again sometime this week and I think you`ll change your mind."
This is what people who care more about graphics then gameplay or story say.
Ocarina of Time has the depth and storyline that most modern games can`t even touch.
I`ve just finished completing it again for a billionth time, and if you compare it to most (non-Zelda) RPGs from before it was made there`s a stark contrast. 10 years on it still holds up better than most. Z-targeting, immersive 3D storytelling and balanced real-time rpg combat, it invented them all and did it right first time.
Miyamoto is NOT solely responsible for the game though, that`s partially why the vid annoys me, he didn`t create a lot of the things about many of the games listed that helped make them so great.
Either way it`s just my opinion, why do you disagree? :)
But yeah, Miyamoto is one of the big players, but not sure he should get all the credit they`re giving him.
PS Ocarina of time IS the greatest game of all time.
