    you all knew this was coming: everybody should realize the Oot vs. TP comparisons to come after it is released on VC monday morning, so i'll start making it now, TP is better on Wii, worse on GC. the motions of the wiimote and nunchuck make you feel like you are in the game

    I think his point is that Twilight Princess on Wii is better than Ocarina of Time, but Twilight Princess on GC is not as good as Ocarina of Time, mainly because the gameplay is less immersive on Gamecube due to the lack of motion-sensing controls.
    I could be wrong though, not very clear :S

    They're both good!

    but Mario is the best ever

    EDIT: i'm comparing OoT to TP if you didn't know

    ya that's what i was trying to say, i was kind of tired when i posted that. But that's exactly my point. On the Wii, it truly feels like you are link, even though u still can't talk, but on GC, it just feels like OoT with no trading, not as much sidequests and really, just like another Zelda game. i wanted different opinions and how you all think the games compare.

    OOT has a better story and more better characters, and the bosses wont so freakin easy a baby could beat them.
    Twlight was a fun game but OOT is a classic and as characters I cared about Twlight had some saga's that we only in the story for like 2 scenes, While OOT had Saga's you had met before and get to know a little, OOT also had Shiek one of the top 4 best Zelda Characters ever. Plus I liked the villages more in OOT better like the new towns were ok but besides Castle Town nothing special. Both were great game but I would choose OOT over Twlight any day for its story, characters, levels, Music and landscape. Bigger's not always better.

    The one thing I hated about TP was how the story was more about Minda than Link....which truly destroys the feeling of the game! OOT on the otherside was mostly about Link.....and becoming the hero of time! OOT will be my number 1 favorite Zelda game for a long time now
    WINNER: OOT

    Nintendo is going to have a hard time topping Oot. it had it all, the plot was amazing, the it wasn't filled to the brim with mini games like wind waker, it was long as ****, and just all around amazing.

    Look at SSX Tricky most say its the best of its series and its not the newest SSX game, look at Sonic, look a Mario, look at Mario Kart, many of there best games came out years ago and were so good its hard to make one better than them. TP was better than WindWaker but I mean Nintendo is really going to need to work on a Zelda Story and make characters that are stick with you for them to beat OOT.

    I was revisiting OOT on emulator recently & it seemed like I had put in at least 20+ hrs into it & still hadn't even gotten Epona yet. How long is that game? Now, after nearly completing TP, it seems like OOT was much longer. Thoughts?

    Both are great games. I recommend getting both. Zelda TP is the reason you got the Wii. Zelda OOT is one of the reasons you got the VC, unless you already own it on the N64, and your not tempted to get the Wii version.

    I'm just asking which do you think is longer.

    I'm debating whether to get the GC version or download it on VC.

    So am I...:( ! On the one hand its much cheaper to get the VC version. But it doesn't have rumble and the graphics might be as good as the GC version. Plus the GC Version you could always play on the next gen console if Nintendo does not figure out a way to transfer VC games.

    And oh yeah...Twilight Princess is THE BEST Legend of Zelda game ever!

    OOT is a great game, it kind of goes to the root of the zelda series! wonderful done game. one of the best N64 games ever released! TP is awesome! I never played it on the gamecube, I got the wii on the first day it came out! Same with zelda TP first game I got on wii! it reminded me of labrenth- with david bowii
    ha ha!!!!! the gamme play is great for the wii! it would have sucked to play on the gamecube! if you still think OOT is better well it's a great game, TP is awesome one of the best game of the year!!!!!!!! I just want a next gen game for the wii not a port! is thhat just to much to ask!

    How can Ocarina be better than Twilight? Twilight is what Ocarina wanted to be years ago, but couldn't due to technical limitations. Twilight is like Ocarina on steroids. All the same areas but MUCH bigger. Instead of one little Hyrule Field, we now have like 4 huge ones. Instead of some crappy circle of water inside a cave for a fishing area, we now have a huge one, with more land features, that changes seasons with each visit. We used to be limited to ranged weapons on horseback, now we can have awesome swordfights with other riders on horseback. Don't let nostalgia blind you, people. Ocarina is like some weenie rough draft of Twilight. Twilight is obviously the best.

    TP is far better than OoT, but that' sonly my opinion ....... having said that, Link's Awakening on the Game Boy is the best of them all.

    i loved Oot when it came out for N64, and i bought it again when they remastered it for Gc, but.... TP(wii) manages to surpass it's predecesores in nearly all things.

    there are only a few things i did not like about TP(wii):

    chickens.... i mean, ok... its cool to control them, but, i'f i had a choice
    between controling a chicken for a few seconds, and having a mob of chickens fly out to kill me, well, i'd pick the ladder. killer chickens just make for a
    better conversational peice.

    fishing.... don't get me wrong, the fishing in TP9wii) is SWEET!!! its just that, the fish are all relativly the same size as as the rest of their species. i caught a 25" Pike, and it does not look much longer then the 20" pike i caught minutes before. even the Hylian Loach is un impressive. In Oot, you caught a 15" fish, meh, 20" WHOA, big size defrence. i also do not like looking at my caught fish and having Hena talk to me every time distructing my view.

    music.... TP(wii) just did'nt deliver like Oot did in this department. Oot had some strong and rememberable music; used to go to school with the forest temple them stuck in my head. I barely even noticed the music in most of TP(wii), props to Agitha's Castle though, very nice.

    wish there was a two handed sword like in Oot and Majora's Mask. twood be sweet. but now i'm just getting picky

    other then that, TP(wii) is a master piece of story and gameplay; never cared about graphics when it game to games, but TP delivers there too.

    those are my thoughts, not worth 3ยข i suppose.
    let me know if u share my thoughts
