Battlefield 1942 is a much better, or at least much more fun, game than Ocarina of Time, if you ask me.

 ???

strange idea to compare those two games. And no, Ocarina of Time is waaaaay better than Battlefield 1942  ;D

I agree completely. The last time I went to go buy a new video game, in which I had nothing in mind, I just stood at the wall where the ps2 games were lined up. I scanned the wall over and over. There was literally nothing that looked even remotely interesting. The companies aren't making new types of games, it's all the same. Platforms, first person shooters, RPGs. The RPGs are not even good anymore. I greatly enjoyed the beginning ones, like Chrono Trigger. That was a fun game. But, when I get one of the new RPGs, it seems like it is 90% video and story, and only about 10% play time, with absolutely no shift from the other games.

Companies seem to be shifting too much towards graphics, and I'm sorry, but they still don't impress me. Maybe once we can actually see the characters running around our living rooms I might say that the graphics are a plus, but I don't care about playing Xbox360 and SNES. SNES had some of the best games I have ever played, and now if I look at the PS2, what games do I have? I only have about 15 games because nothing out there seems good enough to buy. People seem to be focusing more on 'storylines', and graphics. These aren't books, they're video games. I play them for fun, not to learn more about this imaginary world. If I want that, I can watch TV -shudder-, or read a book.

You also can't really compare Ocarina of Time and Battlefield 1942. They are two completely different games in two completely different genres. Both are wonderous games.

morrowind (elder scrolls 3) was WAY better than oblivion... oblivion compared to morrowind seems a little empty... and then there was another GREAT rpg called never winter night`s and that game is really unpopular but was really good

No, neither of them were good. Morrowind was Daggerfall, but with even less depth. NWN was an absolute Greek tragedy compared to its forebears, such as Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment.

This conversation is of course barring spore... ;)

Spore is innovative, but quite frankly, it appears to lack any depth outside of the character creation system.

Now, I know many of you are spore fans, but this is what I think about spore if I haven't made myself clear: it looks like a good game, but i could live without it.
