I had the strangest feeling of deja vu when I entered this thread... But, OoT is probably my favorite since it's the one I played the most. Also, considering I have never played wind waker or skyward sword or anything beyond part of Majora's Mask, I'll have to stick with OoT. A link to the past is a very close 2nd!
My choice was a toss-up between Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time - and I picked Skyward Sword simply because I would be wiling to play it right this second while I think I have played Ocarina so much that I wouldn't want to play it right now.
But I think Wind Waker should be the right choice since I think it is the most polished Zelda-ass Zelda game.
They're all utterly phenomenal, but Skyward Sword does it for me. Despite it's obvious modernity, it has this really excellent old school feel to the storytelling and the world is fantastic. The controls are perfect, they work seamlessly.
Yeah I really enjoyed Skyward Sword as well. What do you want to see in the next Zelda game? I wouldn't mind one with a darker tone again like Twilight Princess, it seems like they like to mix it up when it comes to art styles every other game.
One of the first two. Voted for II, which happens to be one of the least liked in the franchise. I recognize many of the later entries are much better games, but those first two are special to me. In the late-eighties I was younger, and video games of Nintendo's caliber were new to me, so I'm choosing based on which bring memories of having the most fun.

It feels like we have this thread once a week. A Link to the Past is still my favorite, despite not having Genesis instead of an SNES when I was young. I didn't play A Link to the Past until a few years ago and it is still my top choice for Zelda games.
The only right answer here is a link to the past.
A Link To The Past is the one and only answer.
I find ALTTP kind of boring honestly. There's nothing particularly exciting about the world, the story has little to no exposition or interesting characters, and the combat is pretty archaic and mindless.
