People putting this much stock in review scores is giving me a headache. I know there's not really any other concrete metric you could use, but still. In any case, it is patently absurd to argue that LTTP is not at least close to as popular as OOT. If nothing else, it has several years' worth of additional nostalgia behind it, it's more accessible/easier to play, and 2D sprite graphics tend to age better than 3D polygonal graphics. Not to mention they of course just released a super popular, super well-reviewed new Zelda game where one of the main selling points is that it uses the same map as LTTP. Think about that, they reused an entire game world and were PRAISED for that decision instead of being assailed with accusations of being "lazy" and "recycling." That should speak volumes for how hallowed a game LTTP is.
It's also of course ridiculous to write off 2D games or portable games entirely as incapable of being the best. Not everyone is legally blind and has trouble squinting at portable-sized graphics on portable-sized screens, Basher, it would do you well to step outside your own damn head now and again. And I don't know if you've noticed, but there's been somewhat of a 2D/sprite graphics revival in gaming for oh, the last 10 ****ing years or so.
