    The Zelda Series follows a timeline for a few games at a time, though they have been abandoning that lately.

    Zelda 1 and 2 were one timeline
    LTtP and Awakening were another
    Ages and Seasons were another
    Ocarina and Majora were another

    The games since then haven't really been connected, Phantom Hourglass uses the same gfx as Windwaker, but the stories are unrelated.

    LTtP is my favorite Zelda.

    My favorite game was Oracle of Seasons. Many hours were spent on it. I own retail copies of all games (albeit not original release, like I have "nes classics" GBA Zelda 1 and 2 and the Ocarina of Time Master Quest promo CD for GC)

    Nah.. there's no timeline to unify all Zelda games..

    Well, Zelda 2 comes after the first game

    Phantom Hourglass comes after Wind Waker

    and Majora's Mask, Oracle of Ages and Seasons come after Ocarina of Time in no specific order..

    based on the ending, you could also say that Link's Awakening comes after Oracle of Ages/Seasons

    but, that's it [​IMG]

    Trying to combine those and fit all the others in a particular order is a big waste of time..

    Oracle of Ages was the first Zelda game that I ever finished and it's also my fave(I never had the chance to link with Seasons though), then Link's Awakening, I loved the classic overhead perspective Zelda games! [​IMG]

    Majora's Mask never gets the love it deserves. I have trouble deciding which is my favorite. My tops are OoT, MM, Zelda 1, and LA. The Nintendo ones trump all of the CapCom ones, IMHO.

    The Oracles are good, but LA is definitely my favorite handheld one, Zelda 1 is my favorite 2D console one and it's a definite tie between OoT and MM for 3D. They are just so different I have trouble picking between OoT and MM.

    I love how dark MM is, but OoT just really kept that LoZ feel with the expansive, open environment. I honestly can't think of a LoZ that I haven't enjoyed. I even loved most of WW. I didn't enjoy the Triforce Quest, but I really appreciate the concept of it. They tried to give a real throw back to Zelda 1 with a fully open, non-linear, unbelievably huge environment. Fantastic idea, poorly executed.

    EDIT: BTW, I own most of the Zeldas, just not Zelda 2, Four Swords and Minish cap, though I have played through all of them since the ones I don't own, my best friend does. And the series absolutely follows a timeline and anyone who can't accept that really hasn't paid any attention. There are more than enough context clues to piece together a timeline and it has already been revealed that there IS a timeline. It is a split timeline. It starts with Minish Cap and Four Swords then OoT is where the split happens. One timeline where Ganondorf has taken power and been defeated by Link and another where that has yet to happen. All Zelda games are created completely disregarding the timeline and then fit into the timeline after development is complete so it does not affect the game itself.

    I played and finished most of the Zelda games, and I still own them in cartridge form or disc, plus a couple on my flashcarts.
    I loved them all , but I must admit there was something dark,mystic and beautiful about Majora's mask and the Moon about to fall from the sky that still makes me wish to this day to dig it out and give it another go, which would be a first for me since each and every one of these games take really a long time to finish and it's sort of a commitment.
    So yes, my favorite is Majora's Mask, even though it was less innovative and came after OOT, I liked every bit of it down to the incredible ending.
    And I'm surprised that today quite a few people voted for Wind Waker, I remember when the game came out most hardcore Zelda fans refused to accept it because of the childish cell shaded look, but Nintendo saw it right and still did a great game and time tells us after all it wasn't a mistake.

    Link's Awakening on GBC. It was the first of the series that I played. You could also steal from shops.

    Link to the past & Links awakening.
    I liked the others, sometime not finished yet (oracle, and wind waker + DS) because I didn't have the time, but I will one day [​IMG]

    There's no timeline, but I like to think maybe there will be one explained someday.

    I have all the games, real cartridge, flashcard or VC (zelda II).
    The only zelda I never played are the CD-I one [​IMG]
    Is there any emulator for CD-I ?


    real owned :
    The Adventure of Link (I gave it ;__;)
    A Link to the Past
    Link's Awakening
    Ocarina of Time
    Majora's Mask
    The Wind Waker
    Twilight Princess


    edit :
    too bad, the four swords series, I played alone, I don't know anyone else playing video games [​IMG]

    I just recently played through 4 Swords Adventures on the NGC with 3 friends and I gotta say, it was quite an experience [​IMG].
    We had a blast and for me, that experience came real close to Ocarina of Time which still of course is my favorite. Nothing strikes nostalgia more than OoT [​IMG]

    4 Swords Adventures is pretty good, but I lost one of my GC>GBA cables long ago and I only know 2 other people with GBAs anyways.

    I think Four Swords was a lot better seeing as Adventures seemed like a way to get people to buy GC>GBA cables

    I wonder if playing your first Zelda game has anything to do with it... I mean, Wind Waker was my first game, and it's also my favorite. That also seems to apply to you guys too.

    Majora's Mask. I loved it, but I think it's my favourite because of the fact that I played it before playing OOT
