THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: 1998 VS. 2017
Posted: Posted March 10th by Q

Here is a video that shows Breath of the Wild compared to Ocarina of time on the N64. It's amazing ow much graphics have progressed since 1998. I remember playing OoT on my n64 and just being amazed at how large Hyrule field was and it seemed to take forever to run across it on foot. Everything was so detailed for 1998. But now BotW puts it to shame.




What do you guys think?

Good thing those labels were there or I may have had a difficult time telling them apart. :p

I still think OoT is very impressive for its time. To go from Link to the Past, to that, is such a huge leap.

I agree. The transition from LttP to OoT was huge. It probably can't be overstated how revolutionary OoT was in bringing that action/adventure genre into 3D, and it's influence is still apparent in BotW.

I have LttP on SNES Cart and I have OoT on N64, GC and 3DS.

I also have Majora's Mask on N64, Wind Waker on GC and Wii U, Twilight Princess on GC, Spirit Tracks on DS, Skyward Sword, and link's Awakening DX for the GB Color.

I wish the NES Classic would get back in stock regularly so I can grab that and finally be able to play a legit version of the first Zelda game.

Imo, these games aren't really comparable. Oot was a pioneer for the time, while BotW introduces mechanics... that have been done... in other games. ....

Does that mean a Dark Souls game could be coming to the Switch?!?!

Somewhat off topic(more into scores)

but here's how all the game zelda games are ranked in metascores from metacritic

All of this is by Metacritic score, there's no panel or anything. Blame critics at the time of launch of every game.

So the ranking is...

1. Ocarina of Time (99)
2. Breath of the Wild (98)
3. Windwaker (96)
4. Twilight Princess (95)
4. Majora's Mask (95)
4. A Link to the Past + Four Swords -GBA- (95)
7. Skyward Sword (93)
7. A Link to the Past -SNES- (93)
9. Oracle of Seasons/Ages
10. A Link Between Worlds (91)
11. Link's Awakening (90)
11. Phantom Hourglass (90)
13. The Minish Cap (89)
14. Spirit Tracks (87)
15. Four Swords Adventures (86)
16. The Legend of Zelda (84)
17. The Adventure of Link (78)
18. Triforce Heroes (73)


In your guy's opinion.. What's your top zelda list from all the zelda games you've played?

I have played a lot of Zelda in my time:

1. A Link to the Past
2. The Legend of Zelda
3. A Link Between Worlds
4. Link's Awakening
5. Majora's Mask
6. Ocarina of Time
7. Wind Waker
8. Twilight Princess
9. Oracle of Seasons
10. Oracle of Ages
11. Adventure of Link
12. Skyward Sword
13. Phantom Hourglass

I've yet to play Spirit Tracks, Four Swords Adventures, or Minish Cap. I've thoroughly enjoyed everything in my list up through the Oracle games. I wish I could appreciate Adventure of Link, and I didn't even remotely like Phantom Hourglass.

In time I expect Breath of the Wild to shake out near the top of the list. It's absolutely fantastic.

I'm not much of a Zelda person but from what I've played or seen. I won't be rating Breath of the Wild though because that one definitely seems like more of the kind of thing where I need to experience it firsthand. I've played Twilight Princess, A Link to the Past, OOT, MM, and Minish Cap. Everything else is just seen. Also Twilight Princess is the best fuck the rest.

1. Twilight Princess
2. A Link to the Past
3. Wind Waker
4. OOT
5. Minish Cap
6. Skyward Sword
7. MM
8. Link Between Worlds
9. Adventure of Link
10. The Legend of Zelda

"but here's how all the game zelda games are ranked in metascores from metacritic"

I really dislike Metacritic. I much prefer an average score, and if we did go with that BotW would actually barely beat OoT. Barely.
