The list is almost always different From Zelda Fan to Zelda Fan.

That's because most fans fail to recognize the one and only truth about all Zelda games: they're all great!

You can enjoy some above others, sure, but in terms of actual quality... they're all equal.

You obviously never got to play Wand of Gamelon.
One of the worst games ever made, compounded by the fact that it was a Zelda title.

@Jyndal
the CD-i games were not made by Nintendo
they are not counted as a LoZ game
go look for it on the LoZ official timeline
you don't see it in there for a reason

it's like if i would make Metal Gear Solid game and have it all cutscenes of uncensored male to male intercourse
but it still wouldn't be MGS game

Majora's Mask is my personal favorite as well.
The tone and atmosphere of the game is unlike any other in the series.

Here is the list of Zelda games I have played: Zelda 1 and 2, LttP, Link’s Awakening DX, Minish Cap, OoT, MM, WW, TP, and SS. Out of all of them, my favorite was Ocarina of Time. My least favorite was Majora’s Mask. I beat Majora’s mask, but just didn’t enjoy it for some reason. I didn’t find it fun. But, I enjoy Zelda games quite a bit. I can’t wait to play the sequel to A Link to the Past on my 3DS, and I am ready for E3 so that I can see a new Zelda game on the Wii U.

Majora's Mask?!
Really?!

MM was a quick cash grab on the dying N64 system. I could have dealt with OoT, or WW getting #1, but MM?

Personally I love the original best, but then again, I've been gaming since the Atari/Amiga/Colecovision days.

whoa...quick cash grab? It did things other games hadn't even tried at the time.

The Town was alive, or that is how it seemed.

I like it's place within the Legend of Zelda world.

I've still yet to beat it or any LoZ game to be honest though.

Quick cash grab?
A release, four years after Ocarina of Time, on a system that was on its way out?

Far from, I would say.

That list is identical in the top five. Each of us has our own personal emotional ties to each Zelda game. We all reacted differently. Very nostalgic read!
contradictory  +   745d ago
totally agree with the 1st one.
jagstatboy  +   745d ago
Why isn't Darksiders on that list? LOL.

so many awesome Zelda titles. Each one with its own unique twist and timeline. So glad i got the chance to play them all.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   745d ago
Twilight Princess will always be my number one.
Gr81  +   745d ago
That's difficult to gauge
The Original was just so ambitious and incredible in so many ways. It created a genre. Zelda II switched it up and was awesome in its own right. It also created staples for the franchise, such as magic and combat. ALttP, while toned down in difficulty, expanded the content of the Zelda Mythos, and is a benchmark for the series. Then you have OoT which is heralded by many as the greatest game ever (single player). It remains mine (With Metroid Prime 1 & 3 right there as well)

Majora's Mask, eh. Wasn't my cup of Tea. Then came Toon pip-squeak Link with Wind Waker, and I wasn't feeling that at all. Never got over the bait and switch Nintendo pulled with the art style. Twilight Princess was definitely better, but the wolf sequences were lame and messed with the pacing.

And then we waited an entire gen for Skyward Sword. Which took so long to make in order to allow players to dowse for weird animals and collect tad tones. Skyward Sword was a disappointment and wasn't worth the wait.

Now we have Wii U and they showed a great demo back in 2011 E3, but then we get Wind Waker HD (I'll pass) And I'd be willing to bet Nintendo goes some sort of Cel shading for the Wii U Zelda which will release in 2016.

At least 3DS has ALttP sequel on its way. That could be an excellent game if Nintendo decides to limit the reliance on a gimmick (turning into a drawing? ;/ and instead focuses on the content and combat. I know I'm looking forward to the finished product though.
