Was he right about Ocarina of Time being an overrated piece of shit?
>>
Absolutely not
Very disappointing video since I quite liked his Megaman X one
>>
yes, he was

OoT is basically every normies answer then asked "whats ur fav game" and it's that way because people never shut the fuck about it

but you know, rose tinted goggles and all
>>
>>324259803
The point of that video wasn't to just say that Ocarina is overrated. He argued that Ocarina should not be considered the basis for what people consider "Zelda", but rather the first game on the NES.
>>
No. That video basically destroyed any credibility he got with the Megaman X video. Nigga don't know shit.
>>
How can you trust a highschool dropout who is so unbelievably inept at video games, despite playing them his whole life?

Arin is worse than DSP, for fucks sake. He's so incredibly shit.

no,he is a massive cringe tier cuck, and thinks simons quest is better than castervania 4 because of muh items

Ocarina of Time is my favourite game, but I haven't seen the video because I don't care about some YouTube personality's opinion on any video game.

sometimes I look back at his newgrounds page and wonder what the fuck went wrong

Many consider it to be the greatest game of all time. It gets a huge amount of praise it doesn't deserve. That's what overrated means.

It was hardly a videogame review at all, it was just 31 minutes of Arin trying to prove that he has severe ADHD
>>
>>324259803
It doesn't matter if he was or wasn't. It pissed it off fanboys and made him relevant again for like a month or so. Mission accomplished.

I honestly enjoyed WW a lot more than OOT. Sue me but WW felt more like an adventure and I just don't "get" OOT. You get a bunch of upgrades but most of them are just used for puzzles and the game felt clunky enough to where getting them just wasn't enough carrot on a stick for me. Never seen any of his videos besides the megaman one though.

It's kind of overrated, but not for the reasons he states and it's not an awful game like he states. It's still good it's just not the game that should serve as 'the perfect one to measure other games by'

Yes, but pretty much everything that is good and popular is overrated because people can't stop going on about it being the best thing ever.

No, it's still a good game

His video basically came across as an ADHD riddled child. He's wrong as fuck
>>
>>324259803
Absolutely, but what bothered me is that he shat on Z-Targeting. It was legitimately necessary to have in the game otherwise it would be pointlessly difficult to hit anything with that controller setup. It's just like when people bitch about the Homing Attack in the Sonic Adventure games, it's a necessity given the speed you're moving at combined with the extra dimension of movement you've been given.

I've never once heard or seen someone say TLoU was their favorite game.

I like ALTTP more and I think he was wrong about most of his criticism or at the very least over exaggerated how bad they made Ocarina of time.

The one thing he did bring up that is true is that 3D combat is shit, but this isn't just a problem with Ocarina it's a problem with 3D games in general and most devs inability or lack of effort in trying to make it work and yet feel real at the same time. Z Targeting, QTE and all these other handicaps are just a way of slapping the player and the devs with an easy way out. I know it's a meme to like souls combat but I feel it's the first game series in a long time to try and do actual 3D combat without handicaps

You can "manage" in OoT to the same extent without, which is you'll get by but it'll be a pain. No one but idiots would as they built the game around you using that

>>324265151
i find lock on really useful in monster hunter but it's definitely not necessary if you have the circle pad pro
>>
>>324265127
That is only applicable for certain weapon types. It also falls apart when facing an enemy with a shield due to the need to circle strafe them.
>>
A lot of the complaints he made are valid criticisms, i just think he claims they affect the game more then they actually do.

OOT isn't flawless, it isnt the best game of all time, it isnt even the best Zelda. It's not even top 3. But its still a good game, especially for it's time.

OoT may not be the GOAT in some respects compared to modern games, but it pretty much cemented its place in history the second it came out.
First, no game since OoT has had that "holy shit is this real" sort of innovatory power. Nintendo was in the right place at the right time and was able to take that spot as the first good 3D game. (No, your top-down static background turn based combat game doesn't count here in this field)
Second, it took that first place and took it really good. They didn't make no shitty game. It's a game with heart. For a decade after its release, arguably even today in some respects (emphasis on some), it can be a gold standard to compare other games with.

If people don't believe that a game has yet to come along that wowed them like OoT did, then that's their choice m8.
(Inb4 "only people whose first zelda was oot thinks it's the best," if you were old enough to have played lttp first you'd have been able to actually appreciate how crazy it was to play lttp-in-3d-but-better. The sect of "ocarina of time is overrated, lttp is better, babbies" shitflingers were always either just contrarians or born after OOT came out, so it wasn't anything special to them. I can promise you that nobody back in 1998 was thinking "I wish this was top-down sprites still")
>>
>>324264928
>Man the old games were great cause secrets
>WHY DOES THIS GAME WANT ME TO FIND A SONG I DON'T KNOW ABOUT
>>
>>324260327

It's more the 90s kids answer to their favorite game. Everyone else seems to be indifferent to it. OoT isnt' even the best 3D Zelda game.
>>
>>324265312
>You can "manage" in OoT to the same extent without, which is you'll get by but it'll be a pain.
Can't say I agree, there are actually some advantages to not using lock-on in Souls games where it's a damn-near necessity to use Z-Targeting.

>>324265328
>It also falls apart when facing an enemy with a shield due to the need to circle strafe them.
It's actually beneficial to not strafe around because it's much faster to regularly run or even sprint behind the enemy and do so without locking on.

I think it is something which spiralled out when everyone was trying to look nerdy. For the time Navi was quite pervasive so while not the most annoying thing ever it would be something people picked up on. This then escalates as people try to look cool especially if they were doing something on zelda (like an animation for newgrounds) and needed a joke from it to the point where that is some of the first exposure people had

I hope I don't become like him, I mean I'm not talking about his opinion on things, I'm talking about people like him who were avid gamers as kids in previous eras and got to their 30's and became retarded when it comes to newer games, they're like a grandpa trying to figure out how facebook works. Just like my coworker who is 31 years old, has a PS3 and remembers games like Resident Evil fondly but has trouble beating TLoU.

Golden age nintendo fan here

in 1998 when I was 10 literally zelda and slipknot were my 2 favorite things

In middleschool peoples biggest thing they wanted was OOT

and pokemon was played for years in 2000 the whole school was trying to find missingno without the internet and everyone was talking about ways to get it but no one knew how to do it
People were saying you have to push cars you have to put the game in very slowly
Talk to all the gym leaders in different orders.

It was the golden era of nintendo because
EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT NINTENDO.

I even went on a boyscouts trip and they snuck a n64 into the trip and they were playing golden eye n64
calling it the best shooting game ever made
right after watching beavis and butthead do america.

Those kids though were 14 and 15 years old and they were listening to grunge-pantera machinehead helmet fear factory

I grew up in the nu-metal era where in highschool slipknot KoRn mudvayne coal chamber kittie mushroomhead where all those bands were adored.
>>
>>324265842
Dark Souls

Some of the points he makes are valid, those animations and looking around for a button to shoot were just ways to show off the flashy new 3D graphics which seems dated. This isn't a thing exclusive to that game though, it happened to every early 3D games back then, I remember the early PS1 games doing this, showing off their cool new 3D engine or how doing things ingame would make the controller vibrate. It did blow my mind as a kid though.

Sort of. The problem is that his argument was coming from a place of just being shitty at the game. The controls are very manageable, and there's nothing wrong with the game's structure.

The big issues with Ocarina to me, and this goes back to when it came out, is that it's just sort of boring. It never felt like the grand adventure it was tagged as. Nothing feels like it has any weight. The music is tinny and largely pretty unimpresive. The enemies are easy and unnecessarily time-consuming to defeat, and the dungeon designs just lead to a lot of dead time where you're walking around, trying to find a solution but there's nothing to do in the mean time.

If you want to compare to LttP, the music is much stronger, both in composition and quality, the enemies are far more engaging and dangerous, and the dungeon designs, even when you get lost usually still put enough obstacles in your way that you don't feel like the game has come to a standstill.

I'm hard-pressed to call OoT a "piece of shit" considering the amount of content in the game and the fact that there's nothing seriously wrong with the playability of the game, but I've never been able to stick with it to the end because I just get bored.
>>
Back in the day, sure, it was great, and if you stopped playing video games when you grew out of the target age group, OoT would probably be one of the last great games you played. It is definitely something normies cite as the greatest simply because of universal appeal, you'd be a jaded vidya cynic to berate some normie for liking it. It doesn't hold up to games now though, and compared to how Zelda improved on the franchise from then on its the weakest 3D Zelda around.
>>
He comes off as someone trying to be a special snowflake, purposefully shitting on an objectively good game that everyone likes.

Some of his points are retarded, and some are valid, but the game is one of the best of all time simply because it's a better game than most other games out, even today.
>>
>>324259803

its the mentality of people that dont read anything in games. Games have gotten so dumbed down now you dont need any of the dialog to play the game. People are used to that type of dumbing down and even a game like wind waker is difficult for them to figure out.

A lot of his complaints were just random and it doesn't quite lead well into a comedic format when you're trying to take down a worshiped game.

Personally OoT sits somewhere in the middle of my Zelda favs. But I still think you better come up with a solid argument to take a game like this down rather then starting off with a shitty strawman. I actually don't even understand that keyboard warrior bit when IT'S JUST HIS OPINION GUYS and yet I will make fun of you for wanting to argue against it. There's only so much you can do to make fun of fanboys before you sound like something worse yourself.

okay two questions

1. why do casuals/chicks love zelda so much

2. why does every zelda fan i meet irl turn out to have not beaten any of the games

>thinks simons quest is better than castervania 4 because of muh items
Are you stupid? He made an entire video about how bad and annoying Castlevania 2 was. He believes that Castevania 2 is the worst in the series, which is true. He like Castevania 4, but his argument is the items are useless since your whip can do better than if not most, than all the items.

If I hadn't heard him and Jon slightly get into it over OoT during their Sonic 06 playthrough I would swear he doesn't legitimately believe anything he said about it and was just clickbaiting

Remember when he compared the style of Castlevania that he likes to high-class dessert and the style he doesn't like to junk food?

He didn't say that. But all of his criticisms were entirely valid. With exception to the "combat taking you out of the world" thing which is something I didn't feel when playing OoT.

But still. The combat in OoT is boring, designed around the idea of waiting and not actually being good (just like Souls games).

Exceptions don't prove the rule, anon. OoT has good fights and well designed enemies, but they are by far not the majority.

Besides abusing a glitch is hardly how the game is intended to be played.

Are you saying he's merely pretending?

I'm in the same boat. I still enjoy OoT and appreciate what it did for the industry but I don't understand why people think sequels built on better hardware by a more experienced dev team can't turn out better then its predecessor(s).

>>324269907
No, I'm saying he's not trying. They're not paying attention or making attempts to git gud. He's legitimately playing that bad, but that's just because he's not seriously trying.

The worse they play the longer a let's play is, the more views they can get. And people always prefer watching people struggle with a game.

It's fun watching speedrunners who are incredible at a game, it's fun watching funny people who are terrible at a game. It's not fun watching somebody be average and "good" at a game.

>3) Use the Power Crouch glitch. In Ocarina of Time, crouch stabs do the same amount of damage as the last "slashing" attack you just did. (for example, if I jump slash with the biggoron sword and switch to my master sword and crouch stab, each crouch stab is as powerful as a biggoron jumpslash). This works as a child too, of course.
The video uploader literally admits to abusing a glitch. No fault in that, it's just not indicative of the game design.
Upload a video of you beating some Stalfos just as quick without using the power crouch glitch once, anon.

3D was a puzzle itself. First boss in the game requires you to look up. People to this day get stuck on that.

OoT is getting shitted on because people are dumb as fuck to figure out simple tasks. "The game doesn't handhold you, so is bad!" (Arin with the spike things, for example).

>"The game doesn't handhold you, so is bad!"
this is the dumbest counter argument since he loves the fist Zelda, a game with no information given to you
OoT holds you hand all the time by having the game stop and tell you what to do and where to go, Navi is there to hold your hand

>his fucking work is to play videogames and he is terrible at them
at some, which all of are, but he plays classic mega man and bloodborne just fine

>he even complained about having to wait when opening chests, this literally proves that he has ADHD
the chest cutscene is annoying because its not needed, im fine with cutscenes but we dont need one every time he opens a box

>he even missed the commands buttons in WW, what a fucking joke of a person
something that can be missed when you are trying to focus on the game, while also talking to another guy in the room while also trying to be funny, little things can be missed
>>
>>324272161
Navi is there to point you in the right direction, Fi is there to hold your hand. And if Navi wasn't there, Arin would just bitch and moan that he doesn't know where to go.

>>324259803

OoT was the first 3D action adventure game that didn't feel like a sloppy mess of failed mechanics on top of being generally well designed from gameplay to story.

It isn't perfect, but it's harder to think of better games. That is its claim to fame.

I came into this thread to say you're a child. Monster hunter was a series DEFINED by lack of lock-on until...I think 3U allowed you to press L to shift camera focus as a pseudo "lock on?" Anyway, the most RECENT one. And eve then, it's not a lock-on.

Never heard of the claw? Never seen the meme the images of "where's the lock-on? Why's my weapon so slow? Why can't I see monster HP?"

You want a game with the 3D combat being talked about, you go for Monster Hunter.

Ocarina of Time is overrated, but not because he said so. It's overrated, because while it was the Zelda title to breakout into a new dimension and influenced other games that followed, it ultimately killed Zelda's potential for something new(Twilight Princess). People wanted a realistic Zelda and clamored Ocarina to be that, when it was just a fantasy style, which while it was realistic in a sense, wasn't REALISTIC.

Short version, Ocarina's popularity hamstrung Zelda and its fans. Wind Waker was rushed, but it has yet to be topped as far as console Zeldas go.

Yes. He's correct for the most part.

Ocarina was a product of its time. Back when it was relevant, it deserved all of the praise. But it aged horribly and the Zelda series has been hamstrung by horrible combat ever since.

Z-Targeting is the remains of a god-awful controller. This is why Twilight Princess for the Wii was one of the worst entries in the series.

I'll still argue that 3D Zeldas have some of the most unsatisfying movement and combat in any popular series.

Because CG was just a portion of what made those years so revolutionary, since then there have been huge overall improvements in gameplay, interface design, fucking voice acting etc.

There's a reason there's not a agreed upon "Citizen Kane" of vidya. Not to mention that film has 50+ years on interactive media
