Reggie Says Skyward Sword Will Forever Be The Best Game Of All Time

Reggie Fils-Aime is not one to mince words, and while we also believe Skyward Sword is fantastic, he thinks it's the best game ever.

Not only that, he doesn't think any other game will dethrone it from its lofty perch in the future. That quote, and other interesting ones, are taken from an interview with AOL. Don't agree with Reggie? Think Skyward Sword is the greatest thing since sliced bread? Tell us how you feel below.


    I hope it does kick ass.
    Too many people are shunning the Wii right now.

      I'd like to point out, that she doesn't really say the best. More like it's the most unique. Which I then agree with.

      The problem is, many read the headline and believe he said "best", which is not exactly the case. :/

        That wasn't meant to be a reply :/

    Of course the Reggie is going to think that a Nintendo game is the "best game ever", Skyward Sword is a good game and all... but definitely not deserving the title of best game in history.

      I disagree, it's a very good game, but Donkey Kong Country is the best game ever.

        Is it wrong I genuinely agree with this? DKC is the best game ever. It still plays like a dream.

        It's fairly well agreed that DKC 2 is the best, followed by 1 then 3.

          Good to see some DKC2 love. That game deserves every ounce of respect!

          Then I'd say the general agreement in 100% correct. DKC2, such good times.

            Yeah, actually DKC2 is my favourite, but I rarely think of the trilogy as operate entities.

              DKC2 indeed is the best. I'd place the Wii one ahed of DKC3, though.

                DKC2 gets my vote. Best mix of kongs, best theming and the greatest game soundtrack I've ever heard. In fact it's influence seems to have spread to a lot of psy-trance. My drug addled raver mate can't put on a mix without me telling him at least once that a song 'sounds like donkey kong'. The soundtrack has also been remixed and released online.

    I've been playing it since Friday, best Zelda maybe but not the best game ever.

      My Zelda fanboyism has trouble with that sentence.

    so thats that then? weve hit the pinnacle and theres no point in making anymore games because theyll never compare?

    what an ass.

      Uhhh, no.
      I beleive he is referring to the whole package in Skyward Sword.
      Myself, I can't really think of many games that are quite the same as Zelda. Genre-wise.
      what about them controls? It doesn't look like the WiiU will primarily use them, so I doubt we'll see that from nintendo again. what about MS? We'll I wouldn't day Kinect is quite the same, but I haven't seen a lot of support for a fully controlled game like this. Same this with Sony Move.

    It won't hurt to keep the quote in context so let's keep in mind the sentence before that quote;

    "All the reviews aren't out yet, but I counted this morning there are eight perfect scores."

      I'll just add that it'd be really awesome if whoever is on as editor this weekend could change this article. Maybe add the quote I've mentioned and reword the entire article as it stands so it's not your typical KotakuUS "take it out of context and lie to get page hits".

        How about you join the kotaku au editor team and do it? If you can't then please stop whining because they are the editor not you. It's up to them to publish what they want and you have the right to not read it when it's tagged kotaku US. Not that hard. Or you knew this article was by kotaku US and you intentionally comment and complain with the intention to defame kotaku? Either way no one cares about you reading and complaining any article. Troll somewhere else.

          Who is going to check to make sure not every article is a US one every time? I'm certainly not. And I usually don't know if it is one until I've read the article.
          Chazz makes a valid point.

          I'm sure it'll be a great game, but not best ever.I don't think there will ever be a best ever.
          As for Nintendo, they have plenty of great games, it's just "cool" so say Nintendo sucks. They are able to re-invent themselves and have been around for years, much longer then any other game console company.

            Are you serious? Below the article name have an Australia flag and if it doesn't have it then its Kotaku US. Is it that hard to notice when its RIGHT BELOW the title?

            So its not ok to point out the article could be out of context and the only way to do this is to join the editor team of the site instead of making a comment on the COMMENTS section?

    I have no doubt it may indeed be the best game ever made.. FOR President Reggie of Nintendo.

    For the rest of the world, for most of us? Not so much

    "Best game ever made" is very subjective and many people will have many different views on what the best game actually is.

      No, they don't. We all agree it's Jagged Alliance 2.

    Yeah and we trust this man! The dude that said if you dont own a 3DS what's wrong with you!!! Enjoy your swan song zelda as nintendo will be dead in a year or two.

      "Nintendo will be dead in a year or two."

      Exactly. Along with the need to breath, cars with four wheels, McDonalds and green grass.

        Ninty is dooooooommmmed! Doooooooooomed!

        Yeah. I don't think so either.

          All I could think of when reading that was Boobarella from the Simpsons saying "Boooooooobs".

        Put your money where your mouth is. So Nintendo dead in 2 years. I'll put a couple of thousand says your wrong lebumbo.

      Nintendo as a company is 122 years old...

      I really doubt they are going to just up and disappear like that... it would have to take a huge failure, something the 3DS wasn't... at least not as bad as people seem to make it out to be... It actually sold rather well, just not as well as expected.

    Its no Skyrim

      Skryrim's no Zelda either

      I knew there would be one to say it !

      Agreed its def Skyrim, if we are going by Nintendo games then its TMNT IV Turtles in Time on SNES

    If the quote the title is related to is the one in the picture...than this is way off. He dind't say it was 'the best game ever' he said that 'there wont be a game comparable to skyward sword' and at the moment at least, it's pretty true, unless there's a motion controlled RPG out there that I don't know about.

    Really? Seems to me from that quote that he is saying "in history".

    History as in "the past" as in "Best game of all time so far".

    We don't call 2012 or 2013 "History" do we? No.

    Don't ever twist peoples words.

      Except that "going to be able to" is future tense...

    Tell him he's Dreamin'.

    Wow, he hasn't seen skyrim yet?

      Make that two.

      He mentioned being impressed by it at E3, but hasn't had time to get around to playing it.

    There's got to be some context to that quote. I understand he's expressing some obligatory professional bias but there's a line between talking it up and just sounding like an idiot.

    The best Zelda game I've played was called Okami, so yeah... it might be good, but not the best.

      +1. Man hI wish that game got a real sequel, not the half sequel half remake on the ds.

    Nintendo used to be my go-to for gaming, but I gave up on them a long time ago, Zelda is nothing but a rehash of a rehash, mario is just.... well mario and Metroid is dead in the water (WHERE"S MY GLORIOUS 2D METROID YOU BASTARDS)

    I blame Microsoft, I bought an xbox because M$ bought rare, turned out that little transaction was the worst thing to happen to gaming. So long creative, charming games and hello sterile avatar rubbish. I miss (my) golden days. Platformers didn't deserve the violent death they suffered.

    So yeah, Nintendo don't have a creative bone in them apart from gimmicks, they will get steamrolled by M$ and Sony at E3 next year and people who like proper games will continue to cry into their pillows each night (nothing suss)

    Worst article i have ever read on Kotaku, can you please direct me to the section where Reggie "thinks it’s the best game ever." because i read the article and he did not say that all.

    That and the misleading title is horrible.

    Matthew Buzzi, please edit this trash you have posted to better reflect what was in the interview.


      Your glorious metroid already exists.. it was on the snes. Move on.

    As much as you can tell he's a marketing guy, there's something very likeable about Reggie Fils-Aime, I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Yoshis island

    Reggie Fils-Aime is a retard. /end

    Wow. Kotaku US taking quotes out of context much?

    That ain't what he said. He's exaggerating the prowess of the game I would think, but not to the extent that Buzzi thinks he is. The quote could mean "it's the best", but he isn't referring to the game: he's referring to the reception the game has received. That, and he doesn't say unequivocally that the reception is unique, he says "I can't commit that..."

    "and I think some comments were taken out of context"
    -Most hilarious line in the interview for me, considering how I found the interview.

    Don't care for the quote, can't wait to play the game.

    Yes but Nintendo made the 3DS, which means their word on anything is worthless.

    "Reggie Fils-Aime is not one to mince words"

    if i'm understanding this right, you are saying that he never exaggerates?

    have you ever listened to the guy? at E3 i he told the audience that WiiU is an experience, not a games platform...

    i'm sure the games gonna be great, it's one of the few games that i want to get a wii for, but i would not think the head of nintendo america would be saying that their new game isn't fantastic....
