ZD writes: Zelda is home to some of the strongest, most memorable sidequests in all of gaming. Their indisputable charm derives from the lovable cast of characters, variety of locations and the way these sidequests are executed. Hardly will two sidequests feel the same or even share a similar structure. Each feels hand-crafted and developed with care, which is why it’s so difficult to choose my ten favorite sidequests from the series.
What constitutes a sidequest eligible of being on the list? Not much, really. It can span the length of the whole game or be five minutes long. It must, however, lead to the acquisition of an optional item or the achievement of an optional. This makes the list of possibilities a mile long, as each and every installment in the franchise offers Pieces of Heart, other collectibles, special equipment and privileges to be obtained outside of the main quest. Make the jump to see which sidequests are a cut above the rest!
