In case you were wondering, The original N64 Version of Ocarina of Time scored 99%.

I was not wondering, because

It should be blatantly obvious by now that Skyward Sword puts Ocarina of Time to shame.

How so? They're both great games, I doubt one of them can put the other to shame if they are both critically acclaimed masterpieces.

@MiracleBlaze: Unless you've been ignoring everything related to Skyward Sword in the past few months, I find it hard to believe that you think it might not be better than Ocarina of Time. Besides, it's not an unreasonable expectation. I'd be pretty disappointed if it wasn't better.

@Meta-Rift: I'm not saying Skyward Sword can't necessarily be better than Ocarina of Time, what I'm saying is that it's kind of unfair how you make it sound like Ocarina of Time is some sort of abomination and that Skyward Sword will put it to shame. I don't see how Skyward Sword can put Ocarina to shame if they are both really great games.

My point is not that Skyward Sword can't be better, but that you seem to be treating Ocarina like an awful game. Especially judging by the way you say you'd be pretty dissapointed if Skyward Sword wasn't better than Ocarina of Time, when Ocarina of Time is statistically the best game ever made. It just seems you kind of have quite a low opinion on Ocarina, so I was just coming in to make my point.

Anyway, let's stop having some dumb argument about which is better, and simply say that Skyward Sword will be a great game, and that Ocarina was a great game.

I wasn't trying to argue about it, I was commenting on what was said on the previous page. >_<

Ocarina Of Time was the greatest game ever made... when it came out. It was revolutionizing and the new standard. That's exactly what it sounds like, developers - including nintendo - can use it as a foundation to build games on. So yes, many of them will be smoother/better paced/have better story/have more impressive artstyles.

The only reason why someone would still believe that OOT is the greatest game ever is because they appreciate it's revolutionising nature or because they've got rose-tinted glasses of the past. There's nothing wrong with that, but there's not a single element of OOT that hasn't been triumphed (apart from its influence).

Or they genuinely think that it's amazing. Your opinions of what is 'better' or not don't change what other people prefer.

Rave reviews of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword made me consider buying a replacement Wii to play the game, and then I remembered that a relative won a free console. Win.

OMG! I've just received an email from the shop I ordered Zelda with, and apparently my order has already been despatched ahead of release date!

I had a feeling that might happen, but I didn't expect it this early.

If it's set for release day delivery, it'd probably take 3-4 days for it to arrive anyway. I'd expect you to get it either one day before release or on release day.

What makes me so excited for this game is the huge map and the fact that it is in the sky. Something about flying around to different places on a Loftwing is very appealing to me.

I prefer my nintendo games a bit darker, but hey it still looks really good.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Ordered off zavvi today, so hopefully it gets dispatched soon.

Then hopefully I can finish Uncharted before this arrives.

@ the metacritic argument
We got a remade and, according to the vast majority of peoples, better version of OoT only a few months ago. It got 94% on metacritic. Skyward Sword is currently on 95% so........ what that basically means is that people making metacritic arguments should calm down because they're both awesome games.

and Twilight Princess was also awesome, also 95%. Disagree? Play it again because you're wrong.
