Any games that are just as good as the Nintendo classics that inspired them?

If you consider Okami to be in the same vein as the Legend of Zelda games (the 3-D ones, anyway), then I'd say it easily outclasses all of them.


This, Okami is the best Zelda game, except maybe Wind Waker

Rogue Legacy is a fairly new game. Its a randomly-generated, rogue-like, Metroidvania RPG, with a great sense of humor. Loads of fun, and tons of re-playability.

Awesome soundtrack, too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEuaTgsgJT0

Mega-difficult, though.

Agreed, Okami was absolutely brilliant, I'll go as far as to say it is better than all the Zeldas. There were a lot of PSN, Steam and Live games that were great, better than some AAA titles imo. Lots of retro style games, Hotline Miami, Lone Survivor, Super Meat Boy etc. could've easily been great SNES games if not for the content. Also as was said the Metroidvania type games, Shadow Complex, Mark of the Ninja, Guacamelee etc.. Plus Fez, Knytt Underground, Bastion there were a bunch.

Well since you said Darksiders counts I guess Darksiders
I thought both of them were better in all areas than the 3D Legend of Zeldas




Except stableness since Darksiders 2 was bit of a glitchy mess at the start

I'll vote Darksiders as well. Basically the Zelda mechanics complete with all the tools and Epona. So unabashed a ripoff and still very well done.

Okami is better than The Legend of Zelda WW, TP and SS imo

Batman Arkham Asylum is imo, at least as good as any Metroid game.

Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed is as good as any Mario Kart game.

3D Dot game Heroes is as good as any 8 or 16 bit Zelda imo

I thought Jak and Daxter 1 was better than Super Mario Sunshine.

Panzer Dragoon is as good as Starfox

There's probably loads more

And Darksiders isn't quite as good as Zelda. It's a good game, but the level design, combat, puzzles etc just aren't quite on the same level.

Okami though... Yeah, that game is probably my favourite Zelda game of all time, and it's not even a Zelda game!

Come on, combat in Zelda is very limited and needs an overhaul.
