    This is and will continue to be a disputed topic, and winner. I have a hard time picking the "best" game of all time, especially when you have to go across all consoles and to PC. OoT was an amazing game and I played it as much, if not more, than the next guy, but I still find it hard to pick only one game as the best.

    No, it's not the greatest game ever. There is no greatest game.

    OoT has always and will most likely always be my favourite game of all time. Simply the most amazing gaming experience of my life when I first played through it, and was perfection back in the day. Even now I play through it over and over again.

    Though some games have come close, none have so far taken away this spot for me and probably won't do for a while to come.

    This game is getting a bit overrated. I loved it, myself, but I don't believe there's any game that deserves to be the 'greatest game ever,' like Kokoro said. It's without a doubt up in the ranks, OoT exceeded my expectations, but calling it the greatest game ever is like saying it's absolutely perfect.

    It is such a difficult question to ask, since our ideas of a video game's greatness are based on our own experiences and memories of the game. Plenty of other games are technically more impressive than OoT, giving improved controls, graphics, stories, etc., but our mental comparisons are still place this game on top.

    Naming a game the greatest ever is a very exaggerating statement. Ocarina is very enjoyable but I don't think it's the greatest ever.

    I've never been able to play the game; it gives me motion sickness, as do most of the Zelda games.

    Any game that makes players physically ill is not a good thing.
