Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time named the "greatest game ever"

9 July, 2007

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has topped the best 100 games ever in the history of gaming by a research conducted the by readers of Edge magazine and industry experts. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, has been voted as the greatest ever in the poll by the magazine.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a 10-year-old game for the Nintendo 64 games console. This game is also one of only five games ever to receive a 10-out-of-10 review score from Edge magazine.

Of the top ten games, five were games made only for Nintendo game consoles. Super Mario 64 came in the third spot.

Tony Mott, editor in chief, said, "If you were new to video games and were going to go out and buy 100 games to make an instant collection, then these would be the games to buy. "Ocarina of Time is nearly 10 years old, but its position at the top slot in Edge's 100 Best Videogames shows that great game design does not age. "

Although the Zelda game may not be able to compete with the new kids on the block in terms of visual effects, as with many classics, the game's appeal is much more than its appearance.

The top 10 games contain only one game made for the PC, classic first-person shooter Half Life 2. Microsoft Xbox 360 also has one game in the elite list, Halo: Combat Evolved at number seven.

"If we did this poll in five year's time, I would hope to see more PS3 and Xbox 360 games in the list. But I don't think anyone would argue we have seen that many classics in this new generation," said Tony Mott. "It appeared not long after games made the shift to 3D, everyone was wondering if it could make the transition."
