Let me introduce you to the concept of April Fool's. On this day, people play pranks on each other. You sir, just totally fell for it. By the way, let me reiterate how retarded it would be for Nintendo to remake Ocarina of Time. It would be RETARDED. I even added emphasis for you.

 You don't remake what is arguably the greatest game of all-time. A remake would do the game no justice whatsoever. It still holds up beautifully today. Giving it next-gen graphics would do far more damage than good. I don't understand the whole retarded obsession of remaking great games that are still great. They couldn't make any substantial update to it other than a graphical polish, which would just remind us all how small the game is compared to today's games. Perhaps to fill that void, they'd add new things and areas, but in truth, the odds of those additions really making the game better are unbelievably slim, and chances are that fans of the original would really not like the game to be tampered with in that way. Anyway, it's an April Fool's joke. You've been had, and so has pretty much everyone that has read and believed what you've said. It's not gonna happen, cap'n.

The Zelda movie, right?  That was awful.

Oh man, that movie trailer was hilarious. That was over the top.
Looked more like a Legend of Zelda movie trailer than a game.

no they should not remake OoT. I mean dont get me wrong i loved the game but i want to see some change in the Zelda Franchise. I want to see a new, innovative things instead of the same old style they have right now.

"I wouldn't mind them taking their time making a good DS port. The Mario guys got their Maro 64 game out, and still made good next-gen game afterward."
Agreed.  I wouldn't mind OoT on the go.

The wii is a great console with innovative controls that enhance the gameplay and compensate for dated graphics!

APRIL FOOLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Th3_James is funny and makes valid points through sarcasm! APRIL FOOL'S!

He also uses unfounded rumours as an excuse to make a point. No April Fool's here, just shows how stupid some people can be >_>

I never finished OoT, so yeah, remake it. I didn't have an N64.

#65 Posted by vidiot (2737 posts) -

It makes sense financially. Of course it would have the pedigree of "Ocarina of Time" plastered on the product, a very easy sell. They have previously announced that a new Zelda game was in development for Wii, it could be this. Or it's not. It could be an easy bridge between the development time required for a brand new Zelda game, with a remake that would probably run on the Twilight Princess engine, low cost high return in profit.

Personally I hate the idea. The game is one of those rare games that has aged well. You've already re-released it for GameCube and Virtual Console. Nintendo should strive to make the equivilant of the next Ocarina of Time.

Then again, this is all still speculation.

This could be the only thing to make me buy a Wii. I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooove OoT, I'm just playing it right now on my PC.

I don't think it will happen. If anything, I think it will be another "Master Quest" game.

It's from N4G, which is a 99% guarantee that it's fake.

naah, I have my N64 and the game, unfortunately, I can't play them on my TV's because I only have HDTV's and it just looks really bad on those. :(
#72 Posted by License_To_Bill (792 posts) -

The game still plays. It would be nice to have a remake. I would prefer a cel-shaded game, though.

It's also very likely this is a joke. EGM totally had me pre-order Twilight Princess a year and a half before it came out 'cause I thought I was getting a "realistic" remake of Wind Waker as a bonus.

I dont think that a remake is really a good idea, but aren't the two things you mention in your post the exact things that remakes usually fix? I mean, if they did a remake, they would most certainly update the graphics, and would probably add a few things to the game to liven it up. Again, not saying they should remake the game, but your post seems to say one thing when it means another.
"
 A remake couldn't fix overdone gameplay, but it could fix the graphics. I wasn't saying that a remake wouldn't fix that, I was just saying that the game has not aged well at all. It was an amazing game for its time, but if it was released on the market nowadays, it would probably be regarded as a piece of crap.

I dunno, id say its aged as well as any 3D game from the N64 PS1 era. I mean, It was essentially the same game as Twilight Princess, save the graphics.

I think a new OoT would be great to have, new graphics and a fully orchestrated soundtrack would be brilliant for the game many of us love, but just not now, not when the game would only look slightly better than Twilight Princess. The step up would not be big enough, not for me anyway.  The game deserves the HD treatment, and fans oif the game should not be milked with a version on Wii, not when a inevitable HD version will turn up down the line.

I would much rather see a DSi version of Ocarina. I would love to see the game in handhel form,

From my understanding there were a few cuts to the original game that could not be added if not for memory restrictions. If some of those could be put in place without upsetting purists I would like to see them in any new version, on Nintendo's next console.

This. Like I said earlier, its too soon for a remake. OOTs 20th anniversary, with the way the Wii is selling, may be near the end of the next Nintendo consoles cycle, or beginning of the Wii 3, so it could be perfect.

You can say that about any game. 

If Halo was released today it would be regarded as a piece of crap.

If Resdient Evil 4 was released today it would be regarded as a piece of crap.

If Super Mario 64 was released today it would be regarded as a piece of crap.

If Golden Eye was released today it would be regarded as a piece of crap.

If Big Rigs was released in 1980 it would be regarded as the best game of all time.


#79 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

Thats all pretty true. REsident Evil 4 is still good-looking enough and modern enough in its controls to probably get a lot of good reviews, but Goldeneye wouldn't have a chance, and Mario 64 and Halo would most certainly be panned.
