Some opinions below

I'm gonna go and completely agree with @Thunderbird and @Geonjaha here. I remember first playing after hearing so many things about the game. It took me about 20 minutes to realize I was massively disappointed. It wasn't bad, but I certainly didn't think it anything too special, let alone the greatest gaming experience in existence. It shouldn't matter how revolutionary it was, it should be stood on it's own merits. And as for being revolutionary, I don't see where it did much that A Link to the Past didn't do, it just did them in 3D. Speaking of A Link to the Past, that's actually my favorite Zelda, and I think all of the previous Zeldas are much better than OoT. Not to say Ocarina is a bad game, I don't think it is, but like @Geonjaha, I haven't finished it, it just could get boring.

Personally, I don't think it is THE best game ever( nostalgia probably plays a big part in that claim ), but I can definitely see how much of a game-changer it was on its release. It's still an enjoyable experience to this day and the foundation for all other Zelda games to follow. You become the Hero in an epic battle between good and evil, explore intricate dungeons, traverse a large diverse world, and meet a colorful cast of characters along the way. What more could you want?

On another note, I see that a lot of people who haven't even finished the game are criticizing it. You can't judge a work of literature by its first few chapters and I think that same logic should apply here. OOT is ultimately greater than the sum of its parts.

My one gripe with it is lack of replayability. I own the 3DS version, and after completing the main game and the master quest, I really don't feel compelled to ever play it again. I really enjoyed it, it was definitely one of the best games I've ever experienced, but not the best. I like games that I can keep on playing, or play more than once. With OoT, once I've done it once, I know how to do it, and it's not interesting anymore.

The game has aged a bit. While I still really enjoy the game, Ocarina of Time has way too much box pushing puzzles.

Also: As I said in an earlier thread, there are two types of great games. Revolutionary games and Evolutionary games

Revolutionary Games: Creates new gameplay mechanics, and wows, or raises eyebrows at launch. They don't age well, because developers are inspired by their ideas, and improve on them.
Evolutionary games: Create old gameplay mechanics from old games, and improve on them. They make gameplay better, and age better because of it.

Games like Ocarina of Time, and Super Mario 64 are revolutionary.
Games like A Link to the Past, and Super Mario Galaxy are evolutionary.

I think the main reason OOT isn't the best game ever is because other Zelda games have used every single idea from OOT at one point or another and more often than not improved on it. Sometimes greatly. Like having dialogue that you go through quickly with the b button.

Are we talking about the wonderful uncut original version, or the ugly edited version that this site loves to praise?

Most people I know love to play it again and again. I for one, play it through every couple of years. If you make a classic, no matter the genre, they tend to be very replayable.

Just my 2 cents, but I think it is the best game ever.

It's Wario time Yaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

I've played some of it on the Wii VC and then played through and beat the 3D version, making it the first Zelda game I've ever beaten. It is an excellent game, but I don't know about calling it the greatest game ever. I think nostalgia plays a big role in that, but I understand that it was revolutionary in its time, with features like locking onto an enemy and future Zelda games borrowing elements from it. Ranking the greatest games is risky business in general because of biases, nostalgia, and fans' feelings for a series.

I'm not going to say that you're wrong Thunderbird or that Ocarina of Time is the best game ever, but I will say this;

Ocarina of Time is extremely important. In a time when many 3D games were struggling to create a smooth player experience in the face of also being good games, Ocarina of Time did both surprisingly well. While there can be moments of frustration, those moments are instances rather than anything that has to do with the core gameplay mechanics. At the very least, all of the core mechanics are fluid to use, something which was rare for an early 3D game.

It does have alot to do with nostalgia, but you also have to consider how does a game impact the industry at time of release. Ocarina was revolutionary at time of release, totally changing the way games are made (my opinion, don't shoot). 1 example of my point is 'Z Targeting'.
Sure there are many games that have bettered Ocarina, but are they considered revolutionary at their time of release ?

So it was the best game of all time at release. I don't see being a revolution then should affect how I feel about it now.

I don't expect you to have the same opinion, as I said, there is alot of nostalgia involved.

For me personally, in my gaming life (started with an Amstrad 6128), no game as wowed me more than Ocarina. This is because at the time, there was nothing like it. Today's games have evolved and improved on this formula, and some are very good, but they don't have that wow factor I experienced with Ocarina

But this is all subjective. Each to their own
