    I may be in an extreme minority here, but I personally think Ocarina of Time is a HUGELY over-rated game. I wouldn't even go so far as to call it the best Zelda game of all time, much less the best video game period, but that's just MY opinion. Honestly, I think Twilight Princess is a much better game with a better cast of characters, and arguably the best incarnation of Link to date. I'm not counting Breath of the Wild since I haven't played it and I'm avoiding doing research on it until I get a chance to pick it up for myself, but that's beside the point...I feel like a LOT of gamers speak so highly of Ocarina purely on the grounds of nostalgia, and are almost blinded to some very deal-breaking flaws in the experience such as needlessly-cryptic and maze-like level design, a first act that repeats lore to the point of tedium that you can't speed up in any way, and a helper character that was handled in such an irritating manner that she became the most famous joke about the franchise. Navi the Fairy was handled so poorly that she was ultimately wasted, and you can even make the argument that Midna's role throughout most of Twilight Princess was an attempt to take the concept of having a helper character alongside Link and actually give them a real importance to the story of their particular game, as well as contribute to gameplay in a unique way.I'm not saying Ocarina of Time is a bad game, cuz it's not, but it's not THE best video game of all time. Solid Top 10 material, but not the best. It has too many forgettable characters, one of which being so badly mishandled that they're nothing but a joke to the fanbase now, and a deus ex machine ending that kinda makes the whole game feel unnecessary if you're willing to pick it apart like I am. I'm also not saying Twilight Princess is the best Zelda game, only that it's MY personal favorite, being the only Zelda game I've ever been able to beat without help or feeling like a lab rat being subjected to behavioral tests.I can't say for certain what the best video game of all time is, but I also doubt there CAN be said to be a true "best ever" video game, as every gamer has different tastes, as well as their own experiences with games that will affect their opinions, much like my frustration with Ocarina of Time compared to my relative easy time with Twilight Princess makes me favor the latter over the former. I think the original Painkiller would be a pretty good contender for the top spot for someone like me: Blowing away demons, undead, and all manner of unholy creatures while a kick-ass heavy metal soundtrack blasts through my speakers? Sign me right up!Trying to declare a definitive "Best Video Game of All Time" is simply not possible, as there will be no unanimous agreement between gamers and critics about which game deserves to sit atop the throne, but EVERY gamer has at least one that will forever hold a special place in their hearts. So, just for funzies, here's MY Top 10 Video Games, in no particular order:Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2Mass Effect 2Star Wars: The Old RepublicStar Wars Battlefront 2Devil May Cry 3Resident Evil 4Crysis 2The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimDiablo 3The Legend of Zelda: Twilight PrincessAnd, hey, if you made it all the way down here and haven't written off everything I've said as gamer heresy, here's a bonus: I think Dragon's Dogma is a VERY under-rated game, and any fan of RPGs with lots of lore, an engaging world, and great combat should go check it out. The level of customization that goes into making your character is insane, and how the game handles the passage of time makes it feel more organic than a LOT of other RPGs I've played in the past that either feel too predictable and artificial, or never change unless the plot demands it. I haven't played ENOUGH of it to rank it among my Top 10, but I plan to rectify that if I can ever pull myself away from Diablo 3.I know this was long, and I thank you for your time and your patience.
