What are The Legend of Zelda's best ever games?

Link's Hideaway writes:

"It began way back in 1986 with the release of The Legend of Zelda in Japan. Since then, people from around the globe have enjoyed Link's adventures across a number of Nintendo consoles. But while there's no title available for Wii U just yet, all this is about to change as a high-definition remake of the classic Wind Waker hits shelves later this year. The anticipation for its arrival got us thinking of some of the best offerings from a consistently impressive franchise."

First four

NES Zelda 1/2, A Link to The Past & Ocarina of Time.

Way better than the last four, that's for sure.

No, it ain't for sure. Zelda games are very different in personality so there are plenty of divided opinions. Majoras mask was my favorite, due to the darker depressing storyline and really intriguing sidequests. Zelda 2 was good but it's just above my least favorite, skyward sword.

My list would be:

Majoras mask
Link to the past
Ocarina of time
Legend of Zelda
Twilight Princess
Zelda II
Skyward Sword

All great games though.

Good order, mine's similar. It would be:

-Majora's Mask (Incredibly Innovative idea's)
-Ocarina of Time
-Link to the Past
-Seasons and Ages
-Twilight Princess
-Link's Awakening DX (GBC)
-Zelda 1
-Skyward Sword
-Wind Waker (it was fun, but I never saw a game over screen until the last boss--kinda was too easy (and i was a kid when i played it))
-Zelda II
-Don't own those non-canon versions

I'm ashamed to say that I've played those cdi games. And they are terrible lol. I hope the next Zelda is as unique as Majora's Mask. That's one of my favorite games of all time.

I know I'm in the minority here with the Zelda fans but Twilight Princess is my favorite from the series so far. The dark vibe, wolf link, midna, awesome music and interesting characters. I loved it all!

Midna was the best character in any Zelda game imo.

The Original and SS are at the top of my list. I also liked Zelda 2 more than most players did and OoT is at the top as well.

I also did not like TP and LTtP as much as the other Zeldas.

Majora's Mask I never count it as a true Zelda game, it brings hate but that is the way I think of it. I like the concepts in the games and I think it is a masterpiece in its on right but I consider it a Spin-off. (I wish that Nintendo would make another game like it, even if it was another franchise. the formula would be great in a Murder Mystery game).

WW was in the middle great concepts but too much sailing- and worse having to change the wind direction was repetitive and drawn-out.
