According to the BBC, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the best game ever made,
on a list made from fans of the Edge Magazine.
Their list is the top 100 games of all time, and while I agree with some of the picks, there are a few that don't really cut it for me. It seems that CNet Crave blog's Don Reisinger
has the biggest beef with the list. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is truly a masterpiece that should be thought of as one of the greatest games ever created. But to call it the greatest game of all time is a serious misstatement. Unlike Super Mario Bros., Ocarina of Time was released in an era where video games were booming and sales were on the rise. Simply put, everyone was playing video games, and the game was the best of its time. But no other game in history--Ocarina of Time included--was able to save an entire industry from almost guaranteed destruction the way Super Mario Bros. did, and it is for this reason that we should all give ol' Mario and Luigi credit where it's due."
What game does belong at the top for you? Reisinger does have a good point with Super Mario Brothers. It did change the industry big time. I'd say my pick for #1 would be Wolfenstein 3D
and the fact that is the grand daddy of 3D games, really. Ocarina of Time is a good pick for just being a really good game, but does it need to be a game that changes the industry or is it more about just being a kick-ass game?
