So is OOT just so good that it isn't even counted now?

To be honest the frame rate is horribly bad, but besides that it's still a great game. The 3DS version proves that without a doubt.

i don't think OoT holds up well.

plenty of older games hold up exceptionally well. hell, my top 10 games of all time were all released before 2000, but it's not even a Nostalgic list since i hadn't played many of them until the past few years. like the entire SNES library, i have no nostalgia for it, as i didn't start getting games for my SNES until 2010 (had Genesis back in the day), but many of its games are my favorites of all time and i would rank them much higher than many modern games.

OoT, however, just isn't that good. its puzzles are more of chores than they are genuinely smart, its fetchquests are meaningless and do nothing to expand your experience, its dungeons are alright for a while but eventually turn into chores, its combat is pretty good but overall not so good that you want to keep fighting and fighting, its time travel mechanics are inferior in every way to Chrono Trigger's (more eras and points in history to choose from, bigger world to be affected, more cause-effect between past times and future times, more choices of time periods from which to end the game, more sidequests that involve making different time periods affect eachother, etc).
there's just not much i ever really cared for with OoT. it was really impressive at first, until i got into the meat of the game, then it just kinda reared its boring face.
