Speaking to Nintendo Power (via Nintendo Everything), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time director Eiji Aonuma has revealed that while he's happy at the praise lavished on Ocarina of Time, he's aware that no subsequent game in the series has bettered it.

"I'm happy that a title I worked on some time ago remains highly praised to this day, but that also shows how none of the subsequent games in the series have surpassed it," said Aonuma. "As someone who is still working on the series, I have mixed feelings about that. Because I haven't yet surpassed it, I can't quit. Surprisingly, that simple motivation may be the reason I continue to work on the Zelda series."

The most recent The Legend of Zelda title was The Phantom Hourglass, released in 2007 for Nintendo DS. Aonuma also produced Wii Zapper title Link's Crossbow Training, but any further Zelda titles remain secretive.

I really love how there are so many differing opinions on which Zelda is the best. It's quite a testament to the series that each is special in whatever way, and still of a remarkable quality.

My favourite is Ocarina, but they're all outstanding.

I like Ocarina the first actual Zelda which I actually finished and enjoyed. Majora's Mask wasn't my cup of tea as it didn't feel right for being a Zelda title, and I didn't really get on with it at all.

Windwaker was class! great Zelda game till Ocarina came out, and then Twilight Princess on which I took my time with and I totally agree with Ben with that one. I think they have matched Ocarina by far with Twilight Princess probably even better...

Ocarina of Time? Make a better game than A Link to the Past and I'll be happy.

I hated OoT and subsequently I find Twilight Princess is better.

Disagree: they topped it with Majora's Mask. Sure, OoT represented a huge technical leap for the series and all that, but its successor had a much better, darker atmosphere and a bloody brilliant Groundhog Day-esque time mechanic that made it - for me at least - a far more interesting game.
