It's in mine, though I'm not sure if it's my 2nd, 3rd, or 4th favorite since they're all so close... it's too bad this series just...died...

Not sure, but it's very possible. It's got a charm to it that you just don't see in games today. I loved all the wacky Japanese influence it had. Such a game would never get released in the U.S. today. It is a shame that the series died.

It's pretty much my number 1.

It's the first, and it won't move from there, because of its great importance it had during my childhood. While everyone was going mad about Ocarina of Time, I got Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, and that conquered me totally.
The whole series is great, indeed.

^Yeah, I played this instead of Oot too (I played Oot over a decade later, but Oot does edge out for me to be my #1). Back then I didn't care for gaming magazines or internet forums (did they even exist? lol), and my friends were PS1 owners, so I bought games soley by what the covers looked like. "Mystical Ninja," with a blue haired ninja dude with some weird bludgeoning looking weapon? Yeah, that was 1000x more interesting than Oot's cover lol.

That said... I'm glad I went into both completely blind (Yes, even Oot in 2009 lol). They're two of the best games I've ever played, and I'm happy to know that that opinion was formed by myself alone, not swayed by what others think about the two or second guessing myself about "nostalgia goggles".

Action adventure == Best genre ever. Well...it's at least my favorite :)

Not sure if it's top 10 all-time for me but I could definitely say it's one of my top 5 favorite games on the N64.

This game is definitely on my all time favorites list. The soundtrack is one of my favorites as well.

I've never thought about it, but probably. If not, top 20 for sure. I have nothing but good (and often hilarious) memories from this game.

Top 10 - yes. But so is OoT. Like what was said earlier, this game just has a charm to it that you didn't get from other games. It doesn't frustrate you as much as Zelda mainly because of the colors, the humor, and definitely the soundtrack. I'd say this was the happier OoT.

Didn't really like GGA too much because of the platforming....the last castle frustrated me to no end but I finally beat it about 2 months ago - could have made it a speed run because of how many times I had to start over.
Mmph...I guess so
