I've only cherry-picked a few Zelda games to play from the franchise and I've enjoyed what I've played but I'd like to try going through the entire franchise's line-up start to finish. The problem is, I'm not really sure which games are proper, mainline entries, and which are "Zelda adjacent" entries (like Link's Crossbow Training).
The list seems pretty straightforward for me until I get into the handheld stuff. I have no idea which GBA/DS/3DS games I can skip. If someone could provide a list of games to play, that would be great. Also, I don't really care if they're "good" or not, I just wanna know which games are "core" to the franchise.
