I thought of making a poll on which is/are the best Zelda games for you.

The first pick for me is:

Ocarina of Time for the Gamecube (Collector's edition). The first time I played it I thought it was a horror game. I didn't play it for a week until I got bored and finally played it again. It didn't have good graphics but it had a cool gameplay and story which made me just want to play it.

2nd pick is:

Minish Cap for the Gameboy. I like the graphics of this game. It's like a 2D version of Wind Waker. It was pretty boring at first but when I got to the action side of the game it didn't make bored.

3rd pick is:

Twilight Princess for the Wii. Cool game with cool graphics. For me this was the best Zelda game of all. It has an awesome story and gameplay which made me play it for hours on the Wii.


Note: This is a Multiple Choice poll

A Link to the Past, hands down.

Pretty much all Zelda games are stellar, but this one manages to stand out with just how good of a game it is.



(I'd have to pick five of them for second place and all the others for third place, so I just stuck with the #1)

i'm still rather partial to the very first zelda, but i love ALTTP the most. i've beat it on the snes, dingoo, and 3x on the gba using an actual cart =P. speaking of which, i should probably get it running on my psp, i'm about due to play through it again.

Darksiders is the best Zelda game.

But if I actually had to choose a Zelda game I'd go with Twilight Princess for its superior atmosphere and not-so-shit characters/build up. Although in all honesty Zelda has been revealed to be rather shallow to me.

1st for me is Majora's Mask. 2nd is Twilight Princess. I guess 3rd would be Ocarina of Time.


I voted Majora's Mask as well. I played them all ( besides the CD ones ! ) and trough the years, when I think back, there was something magical and dark about Majora's Mask that it just doesn't happen anywhere ele.
Oh and the mystical trailer for the game ( all those people looking up at the sky ) was very cool and unforgettable too !

My top 3 Zelda games would have to be;
1. A Link to the Past
2. The Minish Cap
3. Skyward Sword

In all honesty though every Zelda game is great(except the cdi ones), but thee first 2 games I have played over a dozen times each and still love playing them. Skyward Sword I love it but I just can not stand the wii's controls long enough to actually beat the game, but I really want to.

1: Ocarina of Time
2: Majora's Mask
3: Windwaker

I like the oldschool Zelda's, but I still find the 3D ones to be a lot funner.
So, every other title is tied for 4th.

Ocarina of Time will probably be my favorite forever, since it was the first Zelda game I ever really played to completion.

The first Zelda I ever played was Link's Awakening, and it is still my absolute favorite. I still remember as a 12 year old kid, being stuck for days, weeks, months, until finally figuring a part out, how happy I was. It was the first game I even played in the genre, and at the time I was so impressed at how big the world was.

The only Zelda game I've never beat is Zelda II, never could get into it.

1st: Windwaker - I loved this game's art style. It was a much needed change to an aging Zelda franchise. The exploration of the open sea was incredible too. I also really liked the addition of swordplay reaction commands.

2nd: Ocarina of Time - I can't fault the original 3D Zelda. This is where my Zelda obsession all started. Dungeon exploration, collecting habits, puzzles and good guy saving the world plot. This game had it all.

3rd: Oracle of Seasons/Ages, and Link's awakening - These are my absolute favourite 2D Zeldas. I can't believe how great of a job Capcom did on the Oracle games, and Link's Awakening was absolutely amazing!

4th: A Link to the Past - Great game, and my fourth favourite Zelda.

The rest all have their good points. I really like Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, but they're not on my favourites. :(

Im probably the only one but, from those that I played, oddly, only Spirit tracks left a memory of joy XD

Twlight Princess/Skyward Sword/Link to the past...were all good, but gaaawd these games are so stretched. I mean, like, the good parts are so far apart and it always takes like ages to get the real stuff started. o_o

ITT, we show that the Zelda game we first played when we where young is the best in the series.

Thus,
1. Ocarina of Time
2. Skyward Sword
3. Probably Links Awakening

I don't like the 2D-Zeldas that much, since I find them a lot cheaper ("come on, how could you think THAT quirky") and far less immersive than any 3D part.

It's between Link's Awakening and A Link to the Past for me. For the day and age, they made great use of everything in that game. Link's Awakening the same deal, though it was just kind of annoying having to go back and forth in the menu multiple times in just one dungeon, but the item system was just absolutely stellar. And I think Nightmare is one of the toughest Zelda bosses I've fought (I used bow and arrows for him, not the boomerang).
