    Posting this here because the DS is the only handheld that can play them all.

    Mine is Minish Cap BY FAR. Got all the way to Vaati (in the PC, no less), second incarnation, and lost my save [​IMG]

    Starting over. LOVE this game. Never got that far with any other entry.

    Link's Awakening. I love it, and so impressive for a 1992 handheld game!!!

    I only played Phantom Hourglass and didn't even beat it, but it was really good.

    Links awakening here as well. When I am in a somewhat more puerile mood the hack "Link gets laid" for the same game is something I find amusing.

    Minish Cap- good but not better.

    Ages/Seasons. I have still yet to complete it.

    GBA port of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past- good as the SNES version was too but as the hacks can not be played I am somewhat less interested.

    Phantom Hourglass- not played an English version yet for anything more than testing (dpad hack all the way mind)

    IDK. I've only playted two; Phatom Hourglass and Minish Cap. I didn't beat either. I really never got far in Minish Cap but I did get pretty far in Phantom Hourglass but stopped playing. But the time I did play Minish Cap was good. So I guess I will go with that.

    TLoZ Phantom Hourglass for me, I love the graphics and the touchscreen controls.
    Although Links Awakening is very impressive also, especially for a game that has been developed like 15 years earlier!

    I have the Minish, and Phantom Hourglass, but the only one I have really played over 2 hours is Links Awakening DX. Truly a perfect game. Holds up quite well today.

    My Favorite was LttP. it was just so big and so much fun. I really liked Minish cap, but it was too short. they needed more. i dont know what, it just needed more.

    Minish Cap has been the best for me. I beat the game, but I had to give it to my cousins.
    I would've chosen Phantom Hourglass, but I didn't like the controls.

    Oracle of Ages/Seasons. I admit that Link's Awakening DX is amazingly well done, considering the GBC's limitations, but the Oracles do what LADX did, does more and better. Minish Cap was good, Phantom Hourglass was, IMO, a joke of a game. It literally made me want to brake my DS out of frustration.

    Oracle of Seasons.
    It's my 2nd favorite handheld game of all time. (1st being Golden Sun.)
    I remember my friend letting me borrow it back when I was in middle school (about 8 years ago.) I never beat it back then, but I came back to it last year and beat it. Good times. [​IMG]

    I'm stuck between Phantom Hourglass, LTTP/FourSwords, and Oracle of Ages...

    The Minish Cap was mindblowing. I've played it a bit after a phase where I was far, far away from gaming, so I had no idea what to expect. It was more than I could wish for.

    Link's Awakening was pretty good, but a bit simplistic for my taste (then again, it was a GBClassic game). Oracle of Ages/Seasons ain't bad, but I never had enough patience to finish any of them. Phantom Hourglass is great, I've enjoyed it a lot when I played and would be my 2nd fav handheld Zelda despite a few issues.

    Oracle of Seasons for me! Runner up would be aLttP, followed by the other GBC ones, and Minish Cap. Phantom Hourglass just isn't as good as those, in my opinion, but it's still great.

    U guys must be sleeping! Of course A Link to The Past!
    Being able to play the SNES original on handled was the best thing ever! Link's Awakening DX is kind cool too, but well a Link to the Past IS THE GAME [​IMG]

    I would love to see in the future nintendo handled system (after DS [​IMG]) Ocarina of Time. Best damn game ever.
