But seriously, Final Fantasy VII. I find it irritating that people think it’s the best RPG ever created, just because they missed the SNES RPG Golden Age. It’s really not the best Final Fantasy, even (that goes to Final Fantasy VI/US III IMO, and IV/US II is better than VII too). And that’s leaving out Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, etc. (Yes, I personally believe that SNES RPGs are the pinnacle of the genre, in case you couldn’t guess.)
Jeez… what else? CoD’s pretty overrated, but I don’t think it’s as bad as most people say it is. It just depends on which installment you play. Also most sports games, it’s just the same game with new rosters and slightly tweaked gameplay year after year.
\/ @Natsuru below: yeah, Ocarina just has a lot of nostalgia behind it. I personally just missed it due to my age, and I still think it’s an excellent game, and it’s definitely up there in the top Zelda Games, but IMO Twilight Princess was one of the best games in the series; I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone else with that opinion.
