Well, here we are at last. After nine months (seriously!), the moment we've all been waiting for has arrived. With 40 complete scorecards submitted, it's safe to say that TDLoZRT was a huge success and something I'm quite proud of. This morning I counted and recounted the scores and the final results look a little (well, exactly) like this...Last Place:
Four Swords (GBA) 53 pts12th Place:
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES) 114 pts11th Place:
Four Swords Adventures (GC) 125 pts10th Place:
Oracle of Ages (GBC) 168 pts9th Place:
The Legend of Zelda (NES) 194 pts8th Place:
Oracle of Seasons (GBC) 195 pts7th Place:
Link's Awakening (GB) 235 pts6th Place:
The Minish Cap (GBA) 240 pts5th Place:
The Wind Waker (GC) 334 pts4th Place:
A Link to the Past (SNES) 341 pts3rd Place: Twilight Princess (GC/Wii) 366 pts2nd Place: Majora's Mask (N64) 367 pts1st Place: Ocarina of Time (N64) 388 pts
Yes, Ocarina of Time really is the greatest Zelda title of all, claiming 14 1st
places in people's charts and 12 2nds
. Even 2 Last
places from Geography and Manashima couldn't keep it down.
Second place was a hotly fought spot throughout, and MM really did just manage to hold off TP by one point. One more scorecard could've easily flipped things. Much like the contest for best handheld title. Just five points kept LA and TMC apart. But how will these two fair against PH next year? Being described by many as the best handheld title ever, some might even say it can go so far as to beat OoT. Boy, next year could be fun.
Thanks again to everyone who took part, this definitely wouldn't have been the same without you, and I hope you'll all be back next year for The Definitive Legend of Zelda Review Thread: Volume II!
