#1 The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time

I'm so happy this is #1! Makes up for the disaster of it missing top 10 last time! This marked a turning point in how I viewed games. It totally touched my heart and it has everything an adventure should have, great puzzles, a great sense of magic and wonder, memorable characters and music, replayable, it's lengthy & challenging and it just is an embodiment of a real classic, totally timeless! 8-) Long live Zelda!

We could just do franchises. Then Pokémon gets one position only. :lol:

You bitch, not putting any pics for Pokemon :lol:

Meh at the #1 cos I've never played Zelda and don't care to.

I'm also completely MEH at Gen 1 of Pokemon coming in the highest for the series cos it's actually not that great. The graphics are terrible, the games are full of glitches (which are fun but that's beside the point) and it's just too simple and a bit boring. People only voted it highly cos of nostalgia.

I'm glad Gen III did so well, cos usually that's the hated of the Pokemon gens, even though everybody jumped on the I love Gen III bandwagon when the remakes were announced :lol:

Gen II is awesome as well cos of the extended gameplay after the Elite 4 is over, but I prefer the remakes.

Thanks for hosting the countdown Bill, despite your hatred of Pokemon :wink: :lol:

Oh come on, don't have that attitude, try it you might be surprised! :lol:

Shorty a game I want to suggest to you knowing your taste as of now, have you ever played the game "The Dig"? It's an old game but if you like point and click and Broken Sword, it may well be worth checking. I'm playing it right now on the SCUMMVM emulator (which plays old amiga and DOS games) and it's EPIC! :o

I didn't take part but Need for Speed II, seriously? :lol: I have that on PS1 and it's nothing special. No Wipeout game in the entire top 100?

Shorty, I don't think Gen I is "full of glitches", I mean... I can't even think of any glitches that don't require you as the player to do certain actions e.g. the Missingno cheat, or cutting a plant and then saving in the spot where it was.

Respectable #1 on the countdown. I've never really been into Zelda, but I understand that this game is very significant in the history of video games. It was also the #1 ranked game by critics on Gamerankings.com until Super Mario Galaxy came out in 2007.

Zelda is overrated. i really don't understand the muse behind it. Pokemon no matter what generation is basically the same thing all over again.

I tried to play it few times when I was a kid but just couldn't like it. My brother was the one who bought one of the Zelda's game in the 90s (i don't remember which one) and we both don't like it. I gave Zelda another try on game boy but nope. meh. It didn't live much to my expectation given the overly praised for it.

I will take Sonic or Mario over Zelda any time any day :lol:

Have you played Ocarina though? Anyone who loves a magical and challenging adventure would adore Zelda. Ultimately I guess it's a taste thing as the thought of playing sims all day is the most boring thought ever! :lol:

That's just your opinion though....well like I said it has everything a great adventure game should have, perhaps you should give it a proper chance, it's a game that deserves patience, besides we are all different, different types of games appeal to different people. :D

Damien, it really is a flawless #1! 8-)

I am actually kinda sad with the lack of love for RPG games in here. :cry: RPG is my most favourite genre and besides Final Fantasy, there are some others magnificent RPG games especially on PS1. Two most memorable RPG games that I forgot to include in my voting (they would be in my top5) are:

Legend of Dragoon (It has 4 discs on PS1. :lol: Even though it is a time-based RPG, the battle is very unique)
Image

& Chrono Cross (the diverse number of characters is amazing. Still not finishing this. I shall continue to do so :lol: )
Image

And if any of you guys like j-RPG, you should try Wild Arms series. They have great plots and amazing music
