Scholars, hardcore gamers, and casual’ers alike thought they’d never see the day. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has finally been overthrown as the King of Games. Super Mario Galaxy is now officially the highest ranked game of all time on Game Rankings, scoring an average score of 97.9%, beating the Ocarina of Time by 0.4%. The Ocarina of Time held the position for approximately 9 years, making this quite an achievement on Galaxy’s behalf. It seems just that only another Nintendo (Miyamoto-style) video-game could achieve the honor of greatest video game.
Update: It seems that the average score has slipped a bit in Ocarina’s favor. Super Mario Galaxy is now ranked at 97.8% and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is rated at 97.6%. How a 9-year-old game picks up another review is beyond me.
