They're remaking FS and LA as well, and possibly MM.Right there you have my answer. If OoT wasn't the best game, why did Nintendo chose to remake only that one? Because they are making sure OoT isn't forgotten, for it deserves more than that, it deserves to be remembered for what it is, the best game ever.
One word, my friend: Mario. The only more popular video game character than Link.OoT's graphics were also breathtaking for its time. Later people will also say, TP's graphics were breathless, for its time. OoT was the peak of game industry when it came out. I'm not saying other games haven't created better graphics and stuff, I'm just saying that OoT has been the only one that has become perfection in its time. It's the only one that reached a height no other game has reached.
SS DOES look awesome, but this is all just personal favors and experiences. It's different for each person.I do not deny that SS doesn't look frigging amazing, and that it might come bigger than OoT. But for now, and for the entire past decade, OoT has been Number 1.
