I’m happy that a title I worked on some time ago remains highly praised to this day, but that also shows how none of the subsequent games in the series have surpassed it. As someone who is still working on the series, I have mixed feelings about that. Because I haven’t yet surpassed it, I can’t quit. Surprisingly, that simply [SIC] motivation may be the reason I continue to work on the Zelda series.
GoldenEye I dont think has been outdone. Sure, in some places yes, Nightfire beats every other multi ever (except maybe in Prime 2) Its possible Metroid Prime has done just as good as Ocarina, as those are the two best games on the two platforms.
You know...you are correct. Every Legend of Zelda combined vs Ocarina, of course that has it beat (Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, the original, and a few others can beat it on their own combined) But no single game has came close. I still think GoldenEye 007 is the mere second place winner.
