I agree with thisRegarding Skyrim...
There are two Elder Scrolls games which stand up to the very best the Zelda series has to offer: Daggerfall and Morrowind. Both are staggering, and for different reasons. While I wouldn't call either better than Ocarina of Time, they're quite worthy of being on any list of the greatest games of all time.
Oblivion and Arena are both clumsy and badly designed for different reasons, and are most certainly not among the greatest games of all time. While I wouldn't say they're worst than the worse Zelda game (Twilight Princess), they're both pretty bad.
I expect Skyrim to be good. I do not expect it to be as staggeringly good as Daggerfall or Morrowind. Perhaps it will exceed some mid-range Zelda titles, but I doubt it will stand up to the best.
I have high expectations for Skyward Sword--it looks unified, well-designed, creative, etc. Simply because Skyrim has more breadth and may boast high quality does not mean it will be better; Morrowind was an amazing game for countless reasons, but I wouldn't say the final product is as good as Ocarina of Time. That's why I'm certain Skyward Sword will exceed Skyrim in the most important ways.
I recognize these are opinions. I'm not willing to call the quality of games subjective, but I know people may disagree. Just a disclaimer.
Im just wondering with this and do realize this is your opinion, but it is a very common opinion of which I do not know why. Why do a lot of people think Twilight Princess is the worst Zelda? I consider it one of the best because of its amazingly brilliant story and all the cool items. The only thing I hated about it was the Music.
I realize this is also just my opinion but I have to know why people dont Like Twilight Princess so much. Its not on my personal favorites but i dont consider it my least favorite in the slightest. Dont take this wrong way at all, Im Just wondering with the upmost respect
The Great thing about Metacritic is that It takes all of the other reviews and critical scores, combines them, and picks the highest rated one for that year. Both of The Galaxys won because they both got a majority of 10/10s.Well... looking at the award history for Metacritic... I think Skyward Sword stands a very good shot of getting it. Based on how they've picked the two Mario Galaxies and Twilight Princess. But if that doesn't get their's I'm not so sure it'd be an RPG. Only one close to get one from them is GTA. Not sure if Skyrim will come up on there since they chose Twilight Princess over Oblivion. I don't really know what other game might stand a chance with Metacritic if it's not Skyward Sword.
Its not just some stupid popularity contest like it is with most sites and TV shows (Referring to Spike TV)
