I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU AND IMMA LET YOU FINISH BUT FINAL FANTASY IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME... OF ALL TIMEOriginally posted by JJ Rage:
Sorry, but The Legend of Zelda is without question the greatest franchise of all time.
Hang on I just read the blog. I am actually aghast that someone who works professionally in the games industry could be so oblivious to the Legend of Zelda franchise. Thinking it's for kids? I expect that rhetoric from non-gamers but come on! Zelda is thematically far more mature than Assassins' Creed.
Assassins' Creed 2 and Brotherhood are excellent games but just they're shallow blockbusters with ridiculous stories compared to the subtleties of the Zelda series.
Assassins' Creed is doing well because it is shiny and new, but the series will be long forgotten when people are still waxing lyrical about the joys of riding across the plains of Hyrule at sunset.
