Super Mario Oddysey Vs. The Legend of Zelda:Breath of the Wild

Postby DJFMHD » Mon Dec 25, 2017 3:44 pm

Zelda is game of the year imo. Mario is great and is a 2nd of place of goty and way better than 3D land and world (which are still good games) but a little overrated and dosen't hold a candle to the Galaxy Series.

If my GOTY thread is accurate, I’m gonna assume that SMO is probably gonna win this poll. Personally, I think BOTW is the better game.

Odyssey is the better platformer of the two while BOTW is the better open world game of the two.

Zelda is a technical disaster. It drops to like, 20 fps at times. Just that fact puts Mario ahead of it, to be honest.

I have to agree, it feels smooth but the framerate is like trying to run through a ton of spiky bushes.

Are you playing on the Wii U? The Switch version runs better (because it is a more powerful console) and I have not experienced many frame drops on that version. I have not actually played the Wii U version but it would be safe to say it runs worse.

Eh, I would say that probably they are pretty equal. Reason is because it's hard to compare and contrast two very great and popular games, especially those of different genres.
Don't expect me to post here often, if at all.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that this isn't supposed to happen.

For me it still drops mainly when I'm messing with fire

Actually, I'm on Switch, but there's frame drops regardless. 30 FPS is the game's max when docked so that may be the case.

I honestly prefer Odyssey, since I prefer platforming over combat, but I may be biased because I had never played a Legend of Zelda game until a year or two ago.

Now because I noticed you can't do a 3 heart run of Breath of the Wild

So you prefer Odyssey because you can't do a 3 heart run of BoTW? No offence, but that makes absolutely no sense.

Have you tried a 3 heart run of other Zelda games before making this reply? And in Breath of the Wild, you MUST freaking have 13 hearts of health to even claim the freaking master sword. :geek:

Orly? I can just rely on the powerful weapons in the Ganon battle if I do try a 3 heart run. ;)

But how is it relevant that I've tried a 3 heart run before? The point is that liking Mario Odyssey over BoTW just because you can't do a 3 heart run (I'm actually pretty sure you can) of BoTW doesn't make a lot of sense.
