Last time I checked I thought all the dumb fanboys were still crazed over their ocarina of time and final fantasy 7 :barf
not that the games are bad, but to be considered the best just shows a shallow pool of references :tired
Link to the Past is so much better! :garg
(now we really need emotes of keen wearing mario and link hats :) )

LttP was good. LA was bette-- *brick'd*

Honestly though, OoT was not that good. It brought the series into 3D, and I'm not sure that was a good thing. Also Navi is possibly the most annoying thing ever. My personal favourite Zelda game would be Link's Awakening. Classic Zelda gameplay, great storyline (slightly more immersive story than grab the MacGuffins to get to the Big Bad, even if it is the same underlying principle). Ah, good stuff.
Also Earthbound is good.

I voted for Keen. :foot Sonic would get the second place in my voting.

According to me Mario is the best video game franchise overall...I must vote for it...

Leisure Suit Larry is easily the best franchise (outside of Commander Keen, of course). I don't get all this Sonic love... that's clearly the worst franchise ever. It makes my face hurt even thinking of those games.

The BEST RTS franchise out there. Commander Keen is along the best platformer franchises with Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet & Clank (though both have just gone worse since the Day 1 I suppose).

Also, I forgot (how could I! Now I must submit to darkness...) to mention the Kingdom Hearts franchise. Why is it not included? >:

Because it's considerably smaller than most other franchises listed, I guess.

Kingdom Hearts is a meta-franchise. If you removed all the pre-existing franchises from it, it wouldn't be anything. :P

They're Sonic's face, viewed front-on. Yeah. That's it. At least, the one on the left is.

Yes, they did sell those pasta cans.

I won't argue with your opinion. But how would you explain your hate for Sonic? I admit I am a Sonic fan, but I am genuinely curious of your reasons.

Now being that you consider Sonic to be the "worst franchise ever", is there any franchise that you would consider to be worse than Sonic? (I'm sure many people could name a few). Being the worst is a tough act to follow.

IMO it just borrows characters. Nothing more.
