    Quite simple. Anyways, mine is Majora's Mask. Following that would be the oracle games, then Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess.

    Mine is Zelda 3 Link to the Past on SNES.  I also like Zelda 1, Zelda 2, Zelda Link's Awakening (Gameboy), and Ocarina of Time.

    Mine is also Majora's Mask. A Link to the Past was amazing too. I can't believe I finally met another person who thinks MM is the best though.

    Ocarina of Time. It had the best story, the best graphics (relatively speaking), the best temples and the most imagination.

    I actually like windwaker best. I just loved the whole free, no loading world thing. Getting in aboat and sailing away was proably the number 1 complaint people had with the game, but i found it to be immersive

    I loved Ocarina of time simply because to me it was the most well crafted adventure out there, moreso than twilight princess in my opinion which werent as good as ocarina of time.

    Also, Wind Waker is way underrated, it is one of the most fun games I have played in this millenium if that is any indicator.

    My favorite Zelda game would be a tie between Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker.

    I'd have to say Twilight Princess.
    The story is the best in my opinion, and it's way more interesting to play, with both the puzzles and the combat.

    Failing that, A Link To The Past.

    Links Awakening for sure.  Unfortunately I got rid of my GC w/ GBA adapter.  Stupid Game boy color games don't work in DS'.  (so I can't play it)  Then it's A Link to the Past and then Twilight Princess.  I hate Windwaker passionately.  But it's art direction was sweet.

    Ocarina of Time strikes me the most in terms of overall quality and significance, thus becoming my favourite from the series.

    I never owned any handhelds, so I'm not counting them, but here's my list!

    1. Ocarina of Time - it wasn't just a game, it was an event.  It blew me away and owned me my entire Thanksgiving break when it came out.
    2. Twilight Princess - this game is incredible and barely loses out to OoT
    3. Link to the Past
    4. Wind Waker
    5. Majora's Mask
    6. The Adventure of Link
    7. The Legend of Zelda

    Link to the Past is my favorite, followed by Twilight Princess. Twilight Princess is the most story driven of all of the main home console Zeldas, and by that I mean it had the most cutscenes.

    Majora's Mask is my favorite.  I thought the way the masks were incorporated, the time travel, and the volume of side quests brought a lot to the game.  This is followed closesly by Wind Waker (artistic style, roaming the sea) and A Link to the Past (2D Zelda at its best).

    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is my favourite; just the combination of near perfect gameplay, stunning 2D sprites and a awesome score combined with the duality of the Light and Dark worlds made a near perfect game.
    And although Ocarina of Time is a more revolutionary game, I prefer Twilight Princess to it because it refines all the mechanics introduced in the N64 game.

    i've been thinking a lot about this. OoT is probably the best (especially if you played it when it was released), but my Favorite is actually Windwaker.....

    Twilight Princess, not only my favorite Zelda game, but my favorite game ever. Closely followed by Wind Waker, The original Zelda and Ocarina of Time.
