Need to go outside boy?

Sono42130d ago

botw should be at the bottom, only thing keeping it up was a zelda drought, a popular new console, and hype. Absolutely no substance.

@Sono

It’s super telling of your illogical vapid hate for that game when you feel it should rank below Wand of Gamelon, Faces of Evil, Links Crossbow Training and Tingles Rosy Rupeeland.

I played all except Four Swords games and Oracle games.
But from the ones I've beaten:
1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
3. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
4. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
5. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
6. The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
7. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
8. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
9. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Still need to finish A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening. Maybe someday I will return to Phantom Hourglass.

Good list! Mine is:

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
3. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
4. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
5. The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask
6. The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
7. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
8. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
9. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

It's amazing how much love the Zelda fanbase has for every individual game, and how much this list will change from person to person. Says something about how good the franchise is as a whole, and how special every entry is.

Of the zelda games I've played (which is only a few) wind waker was the best for me. Fantastic game that was brilliant to play, had beautiful visuals and was a great world to explore.

My list would be:
Wind Waker
Link between worlds
Ocarina of time
Breath of the Wild

Ocarina of time may be unfair. I got horribly bored in the middle and that's likely just because I played it in the last couple years and not back when it was all new. Link between worlds was just a fun little game from start to finish for me which is why I placed it higher.

I played ocarina at launch. For it's time it had the most amazing visuals. I often paused it to show people how amazing it looked.

ninsigma30d ago

I can definitely see Ocarina being amazing at the time. Even in terms of mechanics it's impressive.

I played ocarina and majora for the first time a few years back, and while I enjoyed oot I felt like it hadn't aged as well as a lot of people claimed. Majora's Mask, on the other hand, has aged way better. The darker colors hold up better and there is still nothing like the game's time system, it easily has the best side quests of any zelda game. If you haven't tried majora I would recommend it, I was disappointed by oot but majora's mask is probably in my top 10 favorites. It can be a polarizing game, but a lot of times people that aren't that into the standard zelda formula like majora the best.

I was super psyched for OoT and I just wasn’t that blown away.
I think my expectations were unrealistic.
It was very slow, and little exploration.
The water temple keeps me from playing through it again

conanlifts30d ago

My top two.
1 Ocarina of Time.
2 Breath of the wild

Relientk7730d ago

Ocarina of Time
Wind Waker
Twlight Princess

Are my favorite 3 Zeldas, from the ones I played
