Because its one of the best Zelda games ever, if not the best, and the best game on the GameCube, in my opinion.

It is the best in my opinion. I remember getting my copy with the platinum Gamecube console for Christmas.

Such an awesome day :)

My favorite Zelda game, but best on the cube I'd say is Tales of Symphonia or Baten Kaitos

Not only is it best Zelda and the best GameCube game, it's also one of the most technologically impressive games ever made, especially at the time. It still holds up perfectly well, in my opinion.

Wind Waker was an extremely unique title to say the least. It took an established franchise, drastically warped its artistic style, gave it an open world feel, and created quite possibly one of the most epic renditions of the classic Link + Zelda vs. Ganondorf fight I've ever seen.

It also applied a lot of new ideas to established characters. The ReDeads for instance are pretty different in their designs, and the gadgets Link uses are nothing like in other games. Name me another Zelda game where Link floats about (or creates air bursts) with a giant leaf. Or travels around in a talking boat. And on top of all of this, the Link you played as was a child throughout the entire game. And he had a little sister.

The reason Wind Waker is still relevant is because it took initiative to step outside of the box and became a very memorable title in the series. It even spawned a series of GBA and DS games that use the same style.

lol Sorry for the wall of text. Just my two cents.

Its my fave zelda just because it gave you so much freedom.
It was the art style that drew me in though, while nearly everyone else was crying cuz they wanted a realisic zelda i was loving this new style.
It was the little things that got me like the plooms of smoke from a bomb or sailin while birds flew overhead with the majestic music playin..... classic

I think its the best Zelda game there is. The game even had great story twists that still haven't been out done by any Zelda game to come since.
