Oot, the game is so awsome! Why do you think that fan boys still worship it? Hum???
Same reason fanboys worship Halo or CoD. It`s overpopular, and automatically considered better by many only because it has better graphics. I couldn't care less whether it's the first 3D Zelda. That's not enough to prove it's better.
Um, it has the worst graphics of any 3D Zelda, and I can certainly tell you it isn't my favorite because it was the first 3D Zelda. I hate it when people think that is the only reason people like it that much. You can argue whether it is the best Zelda or not, and personally I find OoT, ALttP and MM pretty interchangeable as the best of the series, but it is deserving of it's accolades as one of the greatest games of all time. And it earns that by it;s own merit, NOT because it was the first 3D though that helps since it was so revolutionary at the time. But I don't see anyone taking points of the original Mario just because it was first.
My apologies. Allow me to rephrase myself. I understand that OoT has the worst graphics of all the 3D Zeldas. I was comparing OoT to ALttP, not the series in general. And yes, OoT is considered "best" because it went against all expectations. Most people had trouble understanding that Zelda could work in 3D. That's part of what made OoT groundbreaking. And by the way, Super Mario Bros. will ALWAYS be the best Mario ever made.
oot is honestly 20x better then alttp. alttp just didnt feel like zelda to me for some reason. it had great stoey, but....
