Decisions Decisions...

I just bought my 3DS two days ago (and loving it) and today, now that I have been paid, I'm going to get another game. The problem is I can't decide between Tales of the Abyss and Ocarina of Time. I've never really played a Zelda game (I bypassed the N64 and didn't bother on other consoles) but everyone raves about Ocarina. Thing is there is a lot of people talking about Tales of as well and I have played other games in that series and enjoyed them.

Decision is mine to make of course but any recommendations?
(Hopefully unbiased ones cos this is the actual 3DS board and not one of the games boards...)

Thanks

I haven't played Tales of Abyss but I can tell you don't want to pass up on Ocarina of Time. It's a really great experience on the 3DS.

I like OoT more on the N64. Link doesn't roll as awkwardly and there are a plethora of glitches to exploit. The 3ds version is still pretty good though.

OoT

I am (or was) like you, never been a zelda fan and had only briefly played 1 or 2 of them, but OoT was a great surprise for me. Fantastic game and port to the 3ds. It was my first 3ds game too.

There is no decision. There is only Ocarina of Time

Abyss is definitely worth playing, especially if you liked other games in the franchise, but go with Ocarina since you've never played Zelda.

I got tired of Tales after around 4 hours. There's nothing really wrong with it, but it didn't capture my interest. And I don't even have the standard complaint of disliking the main character, as I thought his antics were funny.

i hear the zelda "port" is really good and enhanced .. where as the tales port is very lackluster and identical at best

that being said i played both on their original systems and they are both very good.. though OOT is god tier and tales is a notch or two below.. no contest pick OOT!

The Tales port is alright, it's just the same exact game as the PS2 version with 3D and much shorter load times. Not worth buying again if you have the PS2 version, while I can easily recommend OOT3D to someone who's already played the original.

Both are games not to be missed.
