Twilight Princess, represent.  Such a beefier, more daring, more complex entry than Ocarina of Time.

It's always Majora's Mask.

These poll results better change and QUICK. OR ELSE!
 
Dude, Twilight Princess doesn't even belong in the same conversation as Ocarina of Time.

Not according to Jeff.

Link's Awakening DX, or Majora's Mask. 
All of them are great though. 
I'm not really looking forward to Skyward Sword though.

True.  Though that doesn't stop people from giving me shit about loving Twilight Princess.

A Link to the Past. It's more open and has better dungeon design than any other game in the series.

Well, the first Zelda is more open, but openness is also pretty much the only thing that game has going for it.

I don't understand the love Twilight Princess gets. It feels like it's trying too hard to appeal to the kids who wanted to play as adult Link in Ocarina. 
 
Anyway, my favorite is Wind Waker.

#11 Edited by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -

Majora's Mask to me, personally. More objectively, I think it's probably A Link To The Past. 
 
EDIT: I'm surprised by all the votes for MM. It's never been that popular in similar polls past.

It's either Ocarina of Time or LTTP depending on when you were born I guess, with Majora's Mask as a dark horse for all those non conformist rebels.

It's Ocarina of Time for me though as that was my first Zelda game and it's the greatest game of all time.

A Link to the Past is fucking amazing, nothing before or since has beaten it except maybe secret of mana

#15 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask/A Link to the Past are the best ones for me.

#16 Posted by theoldhouse (439 posts) -

Majoras mask or ocarina 
 
Twilight princess was the first 3d entry to feel a bit unoriginal (still great though)

#17 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2779 posts) -

Seasons and Ages were pretty good but don't hold a candle to Link's Awakening. Just the fact that it was the first Zelda game that could be played anywhere on the GameBoy might make me a bit biased in my choice.

#18 Posted by dragonzord (822 posts) -

Major'as Mask is winning?

You're alright by me, GB community

#19 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Ocarina of Time. My favorite game of all time.

#20 Posted by BeachThunder (12087 posts) -

Awakening followed by LTTP.

#21 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

They're all completely interchangeable to me. I don't understand why anyone likes this franchise. I've tried almost every game on this list and they're all the same aimless wandering with crap combat.

#22 Posted by Chop (1999 posts) -

Majora's Mask is the only Zelda game I really really enjoyed, so that one. 

#23 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

A Link to the Past, one of the best games of all time

#24 Posted by Tonylope (194 posts) -

Wind Waker all the way! 

#25 Posted by Zippedbinders (1013 posts) -

ALTTP and Windwaker. But I voted for ALTTP, that Magic Cape gets me every time. Best optional Zelda item of all time. Of all time.

#26 Posted by Marz (5658 posts) -

Link to the past no doubt.   I'd put Zelda 2 in second....  even though it's the odd one out of the whole series and I'm probably the only person alive that likes that game.

#27 Posted by amir90 (2164 posts) -

So many of them are good in their own ways.
OoT will always have a place in my heart. Twilight Princess was a nice addition, a bit more of a dramatic link :)

Ocarina, of course.

#30 Posted by MaFoLu (1858 posts) -

Can't decide between OoT and Wind Waker, I had a great time with both those games.

I guess I'll have to go with OoT just because it came first... I know, that is great reasoning for what makes one game better than another...

#31 Posted by airules (128 posts) -

The best zelda? Ocarina of Time. It did everything you could want from a zelda game and did it almost without a flaw. I tried and failed to get into the 2d zeldas (although I'm currently working through Awakening on my 3ds) so cant really speak to them but the 3d ones post ocarina are largely too iterative to be the best.

Majoras Mask is a wonderful game but also a very odd one. It's time mechanic along with the futility of all your efforts being undone at the end of the cycle cripple the usual sense of achievement. On the flip side the mask sidequest is probably the best the series has ever had and is tons of fun. I cant help but feel most of the love for MM is down to it being the edgier younger brother of OoT. ("Oh you love OoT? Well it was nowhere as good as Majora's Mask. Oh you never played it? No it was fairly hard to get hold of and only the true fans got into it")

Wind Waker is six months short of brilliance. The stuff thats there is great but the game suddenly runs out half way through. I mean theres only 4 dungeons! Come on! And two of them have the same theme pack stuck on! The hunting of the triforce is lame beyond imagine and forces you to add every single island to your map, something which should have been relegated to the level of side quest alone and certainly not the main meat of the second half of the game. The changes to the gameplay are welcome (such as the super spin and the different buttons for drop and throw objects) and help make this a great playing game even today (although you cant uninvert the controls. wtf nintendo?). I love this title but it's failings make it nowhere near as good as OoT.

Twilight Princess is an odd one. Whilst technically a great game, it just doesnt ever feel quite right. The towns lack the charm of those in OoT, MM or WW and the whole game ends up feeling like an homage to OoT and LTTP rolled into one. The graphic upgrade from WW is pretty great but completely fails to wow on the limited power of the Wii. If this was in hd I cant help but feel it would have been better for it. The changes made here are minor or useless. In particular the wolf sections are pretty painful, especially the hunt for the shadow bugs which feels pretty grindy. Much like WW triforce quest, the bugs here feel like padding after game testers found the game too short.

The DS zelda games (The Phantom Hourglass and Spriit Tracks) are both great games with some of the best puzzles in the zelda games so far. The ability to draw on your map make the scope of puzzles stretch far beyond what is in the current room, something the 3d titles never seem to manage (the only counterpoint I can remember is in OoT the 23 is number 1 deku shrub puzzle in the deku tree which requires you to remember the sequence for all of 5 minutes. Right near the end of WW you have two doors, one left and one right. The left one has four candle sticks with a different number of lit candles on each, indicating an order. In the room to the right there are four crystals to activate in an order. Instead of you having to remember this order, when you enter the room on the right the camera zooms in on the crystals in the order you need to hit them. The time between you seeing the hint and it giving the answer is two very close doors. I guess another example of playtesting damaging WW) The DS games suffer from a similar problem to TP in that its very forgettable. I cant remember any of the new characters or any piece of music from either DS game.

All of that being said they are all still a ton of fun. Zelda games are the only games I've ever replayed. Like ever.

Phew.

Sorry you did want my opinion right? :)

Oracle of Ages/Seasons for me :O

#33 Posted by Hector (3365 posts) -

I'd have to say Wind Waker, it took everything that made OoT awesome. Refined it and added an amazing art style on top of it.

#34 Posted by ajamafalous (12029 posts) -

The only one I've enjoyed was Wind Waker.

#35 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Ocarina of Time I would say is the best, but I think my favorite might be Wind Waker.  It's close between those.

#36 Posted by Matoya (416 posts) -

Links awakening

#37 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Actually, Darksiders is my favorite Zelda game.

#38 Posted by Twiggy199 (498 posts) -

none of them

#39 Edited by swfcfan (264 posts) -

A link to the past is the best Zelda game by miles as It was all about the puzzles!

I had many happy hours playing & watching this game with my father. In fact I feel honored to have played this great game.

BTW This thread is making me feel old with all the talk about Ocarina being a classic. That game was the biggest disappointment in my life!!!

#40 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I really enjoyed Twilight Princess on the Wii, so I picked that one. After that, probably Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time and then Wind Waker.

#41 Edited by imsh_pl (3298 posts) -

The Legend of Zelta.
 
In all seriousness, there is only one choice:

#42 Posted by wafflez (528 posts) -

link to the past and then ocarina.

#43 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

The Windwaker, I felt it had the strongest story and a charm that's completely unmatched. Getting the master sword in that game was completely epic, where as in Twilight Princess, it didn't feel like a big deal at all and was never mentioned again after you acquired it.

Link to the Past is a close second. Perhaps it's because it was the first Zelda game I played, but I just really love everything about it.

#44 Posted by FiestaUnicorn (1577 posts) -

I couldn't vote.  Saying that I like Ocarina of Time more than Wind Waker or that I like Wind Waker more than Ocarina of Time is too hard.

#45 Posted by Grumbel (910 posts) -

Gameplay wise, probably LTTP. But storywise Links Awakening is by far the most memorable, the other's aren't even close, its easily one of the most memorable endings of any video game ever, quite an accomplishment for a GameBoy game.

#46 Posted by forestofdeath (252 posts) -

I was always partial to 'The Wind Waker'--really felt like one of the most complete Zelda experiences I've ever had.

#47 Posted by HumanityPlague (251 posts) -

1.  Okami
2.  Darksiders

You know I think my favourite might be Wind Waker.
