Tell me which ones of the zelda games use the touch screen to move the character/camera/whatever. I hate touch screens.

3DS - OoT uses touchscreen for 2 additional item slots (X, Y, I and II), dunno about MM but possibly does too, other than that nothing
DS - Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks

Only the DS games Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks use the touchscreen to move your character / swipe your sword / equip and use items. In the 3DS titles (A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D) the touchscreen is used to change into first person view, accessing the map and status screens as well as for equipping / using items, which can mostly be also done by other means (circle pad, d-pad, a button etc.)

Okay, thank you all. I was asking because I fucking hated Spirit tracks and Phantom Glass because the controls made me want to commit suicide. I've never played Zelda on a handheld since then.

on the 3ds zelda games you use the analogic stick and keys to control, the touchscreen is used as extra buttons (like item selection)
pretty much this..
