  1. Ocarina of Time
  2. Skyward Sword
  3. Wind Waker

OoT and SS switch often in my head since I finished SS the week it came out. It is so difficult for me to decide which due to me actually enjoying them for very different reasons so it almost purely depends on my mood.

I love Twilight Princess but that's because it's the only Zelda game I've ever played. I've gotta say that the dungeon design in that game is phenomenal except the Zora water temple which was tedious.

If you can count Darksiders then that too.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is the best Zelda game, in my opinion.

Ocarina of Time, I suppose. It's the game I remember the most, and considering I played it when I was like.. wanna say 4-6, that means it left the best impression on me.

A Link to the Past, followed by Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

Probably Wind Waker since it's the only one I've finished (though I've gotten close in others).

I'm going to go with Links Awakening and Oracle of Seasons mostly out of the nostalgia I have for them. Recently I was a bit unsure on how I felt towards the series, then Skyward Sword came out and reinvigorated me. There is still plenty wrong with that game but there was definitely something in that game that made me feel like a kid again. If Nintendo can give the next Zelda game everything Skyward Sword had plus worthwhile sidequests and a world with some exploration then I really think they will have crafted the best Zelda game to date.

I heard the Tal Tal Heights theme recently. I hadn't heard it for years, but the nostalgia came flowing back. Also, it and the Majora's Mask overworld theme don't get enough respect.

I agree that Twilight Princess didn't quite have the same magic (which I'll readily admit might just mean it didn't meet my impossible nostalgic expectations), and it's good to hear that Skyward Sword (which I haven't played yet) might.

Easily one of the best pieces of music from the whole franchise. I used to stay in the mountains for ages just listening to that track alone. It delivers so much with so little. Well, that whole soundtrack did, to be honest.

I don't like any of them, but my favorite (least not liked?) is Wind Waker.

I think the most amazing part of it is that how deftly the composers worked within the limitations of the GB sound chip, which must have been pretty severe.

Yup, and that's part of what I meant. It's amazing, to say the least.

Every time this topic comes up i start debating in my head which of the games i really do think is the best. And it's always between A Link To The Past and The Wind Waker.

The Wind Waker it is.

Some might say it's a predictable answer, but with out a doubt my favorite Zelda game is Ocarina of Time. I have many fond memories of playing it when I was kid. As I recall, immediately after my first playthrough I started up a new game. I just wanted to experience it again. It's safe to say it was an experience that no game has come close to surpassing since. I have a lot of love for A Link to the Past, and Link's Awakening as well, but unfortunately I haven't really enjoyed the series since OoT. I never finished Majora's Mask because I found it to be more frustrating than fun. I did finish Wind Waker but... I hated the art style, and the world was fucking boring. I haven't played any of the other games so I can't speak for them.

Both Wind Waker and Twilight Princess for me (considering I have never played OoT, Majora's Mask, or the original LoZ games on the NES (I have played Oracle of Seasons, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword)

Link to the past. I have a LOT of love for Skyward Sword and Ocarina though. I really wish I had some way to play Wind Waker.

Come on SexyToad this thread has been done so many times.

The purists will say it's A Link to the Past.

The connoisseurs will say it's Majora's Mask.

The rest of the world will say it's Ocarina of Time.

It might be Oracle of Seasons.

What about those of us who say Wind Waker

That game in General had a fantastic soundtrack. Again it could be due to my nostalgia and playing through it during a pretty young age but every time I listen to the OST the bit tunes ooze magic. I really recommend Skyward Sword though it reinvigorated the series for me. I'm fairly sure I'm going to get chewed out for this but if you can manage to get the Wii Emulator up and running you can find fixes for some of the smaller annoying issues like how the game insists on celebrating when you pick up 5 rupees every time to start up the game.

Wind Waker is the only one I ever got into. Loved the wind, sailing, open world aspect.

Wind Waker is the all time classic. Mere sight of it made people cry with rage and joy...even before it came out.

The game is so good it was able to shut millions of ardent haters up the minute it was actually playable.

It's the best version of the tale that all of these games tell.
