    To each his/her own opinion on the worth of the system. That being said, you can't just assume that because you don't like the current titles, that OOT is "considered to be the only game even remotely worth purchasing for the 3DS at this point in time." because that's just ignorant.

    The system has multiple titles that were well reviewed, and a few that were still considered to be interesting enough to own.

    It's fine that you don't like the line-up, but just don't assume you're opinion is shared by everyone.

    *EDIT* Sorry, I meant to put this in my post but I completely forgot.

    As far as the value of the game goes, I think it's all based on two things.

    1. How much you liked the original game.

    2. How much the 3D effect adds to the experience for you.

    I've always like Ocarina of Time, and I felt the 3D was very well done in this title, so for me this game warranted a purchase.

    Yes. Very much so imo. The 3D stereoscopic is easily the best on 3DS so far, the improoved graphics are great of course, the interface for items is a lot better imo, and the Master Quest has both more damage of enemies than previous master quest versions, and is mirrored in every zone. Neither of those have been done with the master quest before, which makes it very nice if you ask me.

    Again: Yes, it's worth $40.
    Worth $290 only if you have a lot of money. I only got a 3DS because it was a gift, I can't afford one on my own.

    To me it was more than worth the price, but then again I'm really able to give an unbiased opinion (I had five physical copies and the VC version before I bought the 3D version).

    ...I said considered. Primarily because the general consensus is that the launch 3DS titles were poop. Like I said, I'm a third party. I'm riding what has generally been said, and that seems to be the feeling.

    Now, quit trolling, flaming, being an annoying ass, whatever your doing, in this thread.

    I quote like the graphics. BUT, from an unbiased point of view, it's not worth buying a 3DS for. I have my 3DS because I love Nintendo, and I love OoT. One of my favorite games of all time. There are also other games I like for my 3DS, Rayman, Samurai Warriors, Ridge Racer and Pilot Wings. All of these games together make it worth it for me, because I like them all. But in other people's opinions, I doubt it would.

    Who are you to tell him to stop trolling and flaming? Have you looked at the posts you've made in this topic? Also, he asked for opinions of people that have played both. You obviously haven't played the 3DS version (Maybe not even the original), therefore you aren't helping by posting in this topic at all.

    It's been almost 12 years since I've had a true play-through of this game. So far, I have no regrets in buying it. If it has been a LONG time since one has played it or if someone hasn't ever touched this title then I'd suggest getting it. In my opinion, it looks and feels amazing.

    There are little things they could have done to make it better... Maybe touch up on some more things in the game, added some newer content (maybe the beta content), or something just to appeal to those who have played every port of it.

    Overall, I'm glad I made this purchase. It doesn't warrant a system purchase but it's great for collection purposes or any reason I said above. The price seems fine in my opinion but maybe it's just because I have the money for it.

    Ocarina of time 3D, you can equip 4 items, and use them very easily with the touchscreen, The Motion Control is a interesting touch, AND the graphics are amazing.

    There was no need to get a wii because the game was also on gamecube and had exactly the same graphics. The gamecube version had much better controls. I mean, you swing the wiimote and it wait until you,re done swinging to make the move, while on the gamecube version, you just press B and it's done.

    im surprised theres not an auto play option knowing nintendo

    Honestly, if Nintendo never released any "ports"(game just being played through an emulator) there would be less people bitching about it.

    I feel it is worth it but I guess I'm biased because I like Zelda games. Sure they could have improved the graphics even more but that takes time. This is Oot on a handheld, 3D (though i dont care much for any 3d), improved graphics and performance, new control mechanics(although not drastic), and Master Quest included(not every release came with it).

    The main argument is we've all played it before (we all haven't) but why do people bother with anything like the VC on any system?

    He's doing exactly what I said not to do. I fed a light opinion. When I said I didn't want any flaming or trolling, I meant it. I will be a fucking bastard to you if I need to as a way to uphold it. Unless you take my posts as far out of context as possible to try to pose me as an aggressor, it is hard to take my posts as trolling, flaming, or anything of the like (within this thread at least). Unless you call agreeing that a remake released over 10 years past the first release should look better as flame baiting or something.

    I have made the intentions of the thread clear. If you can't appreciate that, you are invited to not post instead of trying to derail it.

    Stay. On. Topic.

    But all you're doing is fueling flamers and "trolling." If you're going to ask for opinions, don't just shoot down every positive opinion people give.

    The question you asked in the OP seems pretty rhetorical, and it's as if you're just waiting for people to post good things about the game so you can quote them and belittle them and their opinion(s).

    EDIT: And yes, I do agree that that's trolling, because it DOES look a TON better.

    lol, $290 just to play OoT3D? That's like saying people paid the whopping $600 for the original PS3 just to watch Bluray movies, because that is not true.

    It's not about paying $290 just to play OoT3D. It's about paying $290 to start your 3DS collection with the device and a game worth its price tag, and just like the PS3 took time to get some more good games, the 3DS will as well.

    Holy shit dude. I agreed that it looking better was basically an obligatory move on part of Nintendo. How the fuck is that trolling? I've commented maybe six times, INCLUDING this post. How am I only feeding the negative opinions? Half of what I've said has been trying to get you derailers to stay on topic. I've requested it nicely, I've basically demanded it, and now I'm flat out telling you. Stay on topic, or go the fuck away. What you feel the intentions of the thread are your own. I was genuinely curious on what people thought, but you are just down right determined to think otherwise.

    I would think that I know why I created the thread, not you.

    I have not shot down every positive opinion. I have not really commented on jack shit that people have said. Quit trying to make me the aggressor. Anymore of this, and I will promptly request that posts be trashed. Not arguing with somebody who assumes and doesn't listen, and I'm not going to let other people ruin this thread either. I realize it's believed that every 3DS related thread needs to turn into a debate on the worth of the 3DS, and its future success. Believe it or not though, it doesn't.

    What. The Wii doesn't support motion controls for its native emulator.

    Awesome question/s!

    After reading throughout the thread, i'm going to agree with Mcguild on the whole "omg master quest/boss rush" rant.
    The only thing I've read that makes OoT stand out are the graphics and control mechanics...oh and 3D. lolz
    On the other hand many bought it because of the goodies. If i had the chance i'd just buy it for the OST(got a connection with a buddy from the u.s, yay
