I stopped caring about games journalism 10 years ago (and I'm not about to start caring now) but there's something I'd like to know. 10 years ago Ocarina of Time was widely considered to be the best game ever made, has this changed since then? Is there a newer title that pops up in the minds of most people when someone brings up "the best game ever made"?
For me it's Morrowind.. Probably more out of nostalgia-goggle vision than anything else. I don't think I'll replay the game, if only because I cannot handle grinding through the early Sceyda-Neen/Balmora stages of the game..

Mass Effect 2 for me, I've replayed it a ton, and every time I get ready to play it again I think: "Surely it's not as good as I remember it, it's only nostaligia" and then I play it and it's always as good as I remember. It's the only game that has stayed good for the years I've had it.
A lot of places will say things like one of the older 2d Super Mario games, or OOT, but I think public opinion is swaying to the newest greatest game of all time
_____.You know the one.
Your opinion is really depressing.
I just finished playing ME2 for the first time, and boy did it suck really bad.
Maybe I was just spoiled because ME1 did a lot of shit right. But man. ME2 felt like such a massive step backwards in so many ways.
I've been working in the VG industry since '99 and I've never met anyone, be them American, British, German, French, Japanese, South Korean, or Chinese that considers Ocarina of Time to be the best game ever made. Not a single one and I think the comments here today are testament to that.
