It might sound a bit casual but Mario is probably my favorite series, if we limit it to the /vr/ stuff. That's including spinoffs like Mario Kart, Party and the RPGs. I love the platforers as well of course, but if we count each Mario spinoff as its own series seperate from Super Mario Bros. then each one equals a lot less than the whole, I think. If we count each Mario series (SMB, Kart, etc.) separately, then Metal Slug would be my overall favorite videogame IP.
>>2765405 Yes, he should have said series or intellectual property. Thankyou grammar anon.
>>2765373 Probably Zelda. Most of my other favorite games never garnered enough to be considered a franchise, or if they did, most of the games are shit.
Ocarina of Time gets a lot of shit hurled at it, but god damn it's so good. To this day, I'm always amazed how solid it is. The game doesn't hold your hand, doesn't bullshit you, and has zero filler. You progress as fast as you want. You can take your time and do everything, explore everywhere and talk to everyone, and likely get all kinds of neat shit to supplement your experience, or you can just fuck everything, make a beeline straight to Ganon's castle, be done with the game in like 7 hours, and the game NEVER slows you down. Considering this game basically wrote the book for 3D adventure gaming on the fly, it did it near-perfectly.
It's a shame that every subsequent Zelda has been a step down. Majora, only slightly, because some of the pre-dungeon tasks are a bit too much like filler. Wind Waker suffers from obviously cut content and miserable pacing at the beginning and ending. Twilight Princess, I haven't played since it came out, but I recall feeling greatly annoyed by the mandatory wolf segments, and being forced to find "tears of light" or whatever to unlock new areas to progress. And well, we could fill a book with Skyward Sword's problems.
>>2768321 Your criticisms for Majora are valid, but I didn't mind the number of dungeons personally. I know dungeons are what make a Zelda game but there was so much to do outside of them in that game that I never felt bored. It was a nice change of pace at least.
>>2768367 All filler in OoT is completely optional. Unless you're going to claim something like evading the guards on the way to Zelda in the castle or having to do the Epona race is filler. I'm having trouble thinking of anything.
>>2768426 Oh I gotcha, yeah I don't know if you actually NEED her for anything else in the game after that point. I just brought it up as something the game forces you to do that some people might not like and call filler. Not some ravenous OoT fan here or anything, I just like it and play through it once a year or so.
Love me some Mega Man. Not the most original series in the world, but always delivers a fun experience with some great music. Plus, I can't get enough of the overall character designs. They're just so colorful and original.
>>2768434 >>2768436 The game doesn't even require you to get Epona. You could go through the entire game without setting foot in Lon Lon Ranch.
The act of getting Epona isn't even filler. It's the act of getting Epona. You have to ask Ingo to a race and win twice. It's a challenge with a reward. I know the exact definition of filler is sort of subjective, but some people get pretty stupid about it, though. If you look at it their way, dungeon enemies and puzzles are just filler until you get to the boss, and dungeon bosses themselves are just filler until you reach the final boss.
>>2768397 I didn't even mention the number of dungeons. I consider Majora to be just as good as Ocarina of Time, really, it's just so very different, and it requires some patience and a little bit of repetition that makes it less than ideal to just pick up and tackle in a straightforward manner like OoT.
>>2768368 Not that guy, and I fucking love OOT, but going back to the forest to learn Saria's song right after leaving was pretty annoying. It does introduce the lost woods and forest temple, but that could have been done while you were there the first time, or the shortcut to there from Goron City could have been made to be unblocked with something other than bombs.
It's a very minor amount of filler, and is the only part of the game that I would call such. Still, it's there. Even great games have flaws.
>>2769125 It's a bit of backtracking, but since it introduces you to an important new song, AND allows you to explore an entirely new area that has tons of shit to do (The Lost Woods), I think it can hardly be considered filler in the typical sense.
>>2773102 It is an edit of the "Zelda's Reaction" meme featuring the emotions (and Riley) from the Pixar film Inside Out. Riley (the blond girl on the lower left) is the cutest of them all but she has the name Ocarina of Time instead of Riley. Therefore, it is true that Ocarina of Time is the best Zelda. According to /co/.
