Um... yeah... definitely OOT. I don't know why there'd be any dispute. Not only is it the best Zelda game, but the best game of all time.

A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time are my favorites :) I liked The Windwaker as well :D

link to the past is the best yet but I think TP will be better.

September 1st, 2006, 01:09
link to the past ruled i loved that game.
oot is good but i think i may prefer link to the past

September 1st, 2006, 01:16
They all rocked, but I've got to go with Ocarina of Time and a Link's Awakening!

Majora's Mask was great as well, but for some reason the storyline felt "short."

scarph
September 1st, 2006, 02:04
well i like all zelda games especially lttp, buttttt if someone could fix their emulator, cough cough exophase, maybe i could experience minish cap, beccause uhh i already own it on gba, i just dont play it there, yea thats right

September 1st, 2006, 02:06
Ocarina FTW

PSP_Newbie
September 1st, 2006, 02:13
1. Ocarina of Time
2. Wind Waker
3. Majora's Mask
4. Link to the Past
5. Link's Awakening
6. The Oracle of Ages/Seasons

Minish Cap looks good, but never played it :(
If Exo manages to fix the bush-cutting glitch, that would be awsome ;D

I never played N64 zeldas but I give it to Zelds:ALTTP as not only the best Zelda title, it is one of the best adventure titles ever!!!!

Adrenalin
September 1st, 2006, 02:54
i can only say OOT cuz its the only one i own... but it freaking beats the pants off any other game !!!

September 1st, 2006, 03:01

3. The Legend of Zelda
4. The Minish Cap

kcajblue
September 1st, 2006, 04:16
after thinking about it, i came to the conclusion that The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will be the greatest Zelda game ever.:D

Ocarina of TIME!!!!! than quite possibly twilight princess (it's going to rock trust meh) and of course don't forget... alink to the past..

DemoniusX
September 1st, 2006, 04:40
I personally think Zelda II is the best zelda ever. Great action,Good spells and awesome game play. The orignal was dull you just walked around like a jack ass hoping it would lead you some where.

2nd Place is OoT for me because it really captured the magic of what zelda is about, OoT was the ONLY reason I bought a 64 but Mystical ninja was the other reason.

September 1st, 2006, 04:46
Okayp
Zelda iz my favourite game series (other than mana) I have every Zelda game to roam the planat!
3rd- fav is Links awakaning, cuz of its deep stor line and portabilityness,
2nd- A Link To The Past, cuz it was the first game I ever beat! and of its graphics and its for the best sstem ever the Snes,
1st - Ocarina of time, cuz of the 3D rendering and how it looks and the amazing gameplay and secrets!
( O ) ( O );)

Most of you no offence, are pretty ridiculous. If you were present and even born in the NES era i feel bad for you for picking either Ocarina Of Time, Majoras Mask, or Wind Waker. Link To The Past had great music and overall had the best items so thats not a bad choice at all. Links Awakening-So fun and very impressive for a Gameboy Zelda, def one of the best. To the user who said that the original Zelda everytime you played it made you feel like you were playing it the first time-Right on dude!


The Original All The Way! As a kid I had sooooo many memories playing that game, and think about it, to develop a game that fun with a T.V show, great plot, and items like that that contribute so much to the gameplay in the 80's is so impressive!


Ocarina Of Time was very fun and is one of the best N64 games of all time and was a very high seller but its vastly overrated. Being a kid in that game was the biggest waste of time in my life. . .You can't tell me that once you knew you could be an adult you weren't saying to yourself "When am i gonna become an adult? When am I gonna become an adult? over and over and over. . . ." and uhhh Water Temple-Most Annoying thing ever!

September 1st, 2006, 05:05
OOT and Maj Mask then Wind Wker

pkmusicmaker
September 1st, 2006, 05:16
Honestly, windwaker was ridiculously fun. Lookin forward to playin Twilight Princess on the Wii.

Kaiser
September 1st, 2006, 05:23
OOT with Majora's Mask as a close second and yes I did grow up in the 16-bit generation. But I really don't care for any of the 2D Zeldas. They kind of bore me.

The Zelda series was at its peak on the N64.

paco1984
September 1st, 2006, 05:34
what? zelda link to the past is definately on the top of my list. it has the best music of all of them in my opinion and the deep swordplay was awesome you could atack parry mele attacks and block ranged attacks. that game is still fun to play too i cant seem to pick up oot for verry long. and i didnt think majoras mask was verry good. it felt just threwn together.

Shemp
September 1st, 2006, 05:41
Ocarina of Time. I bought a Nintendo 64 just so I could play OoT and Mario64; ironically, those were the only decent games I *ever* played on the 64. But they were enough. :-)

Wind Waker (GameCube)

cyrien
September 1st, 2006, 08:05
Zelda's Adventure on the CD-I by far the best Zelda game ever made... on the CD-I.


But seriously the best has to be either OOT or LTTP... about equal in my book.

FYV
September 1st, 2006, 08:32
Link to the past and OOT are both very good

It has to be Link to the past, the story, music, gameplay and everything else makes it amazing.

tsurumaru
September 1st, 2006, 10:53
Since;
I was amazed by but never completed OOT (Damn you Water Temple!)
I never owned a SNES (Damn you Megadrive loving europeans!)

I'd have to go with "Links Awakening" on the gameboy, the concept, plot and ending was so well conceived it deserves it *Sniff*

A masterclass at story telling!

AuroEdge
September 1st, 2006, 11:26
Zelda: Ocarina of Time is definitely the best in the Zelda series and best game of all time. Link to the Past was fun back in the day, but OoT kicked a ridiculous amount of ass.

warped
September 1st, 2006, 12:06
Yea OOT! great graphics, gameplay, music... jus amazing for its time..! plus it was the most challenging for me.
Thats why i luv it. :D Greatest Zelda of all time!

LTTP gets 2nd, used to play that all the time! Good stuff! :eek:

Billz
September 1st, 2006, 12:12
My Snes almost got fryed playing link to the past....
My N64 didn't get mildly warm untill O.O.T......

These have to be two of the best games ever made and i will have to say Link to the past just for the Nostalgic Value............ " LINK.. LINK .. WAKE UP... "

DEKU 4 EVER !!!!!!

September 1st, 2006, 12:42

but a link to the past gets my vote

Well all i can say is... I guess we can't help it...
i'm not saying i think 3d graphics are better than 2d graphics or anything, but with the 64's potential, ZOOT surely had better variety and length of gameplay, even originality in may ways. OOT's music was very appealing to me too, and the sound quality obviously improved too.

So whichever is better depends on a variety of factors, but don't diss those who love OOT ; theyre just as much of a zelda fan as u are.

No Offence intended.. not trying to diss u either
look forward to the future (Twilight Princess - YAY)

PS: Has anyone heard any rumors/announcements of what instrument will be used in the game?
Personally i'd love a selection of two, the ocarina for calssic tunes and maybe something new.

Man, it was a pretty hard game in some places, but DUDE!! FINISH IT!!

I had to use parts of walkthroughs once or twice to pass some seemingly impossible places. maybe u should do the same.

I believe your thinking of Links Awakening Method, mine would have to be either Zelda II (I know stone me) or OOT just cause I never got a chance to play the original until I'd already played throught the other ones and by then the impressions were to deep.

#4 A Link to the Past
#5 The Original

September 1st, 2006, 14:08
My favorite is Majora's Mask, but I kinda wanted to help the people who couldnt beat water temple.
I think I know where you were stuck. You needed another key to get to Dark Link, but couldnt find it eh? Well the key you seek is in the main little tower in the center. Make the water go up, but you have to go down in the hole at the bottom. You will reach a room with the key. I doubt you wanna pick up that old n64 though.

either A Link To The Past, or Ocarina of time. Which is also the same as about everyone else is saying.

Wind Waker, no contest. Shigeru Miyamoto's original vision for the game, and a welcome change of style for the series.

Too bad everyone bitched about it and it's going back to mature Zelda.

September 1st, 2006, 15:21
wind waker was awesome but i still think oot was better that was one of the best games i ever played and it was damn hard to complete since i was like 9 at the time back then queen gohma scared me :eek:

yea your right wind waker was awesome too bad its going now i loved the feel of that game and the music was preety awesome I would have like the windwaker style graphics in the new game but oh well i think an older windwaker link would have looked kool.

September 1st, 2006, 17:30
Majoras mask is the best in my opinion. I own it on N64 and the Gamecube version which came with MarioCart DoubleDash

jak66
September 1st, 2006, 17:47
for me its oot, compared to rpgs nowadays its long, has a good story (back when it was made it had good graphics) and a good soundtrack

if it wasnt for the whole sailing bit trying to get the triforce in wind waker, i might have said that, but that bit spoiled it for me

(notice how only 2 people have mentioned links adventure, the second one, before now, what was it people didnt like about that one?)

Ocarina gets my vote. But the SNES game- Link the the Past is a very very close second!

Ocarina gets my vote. But the SNES game- Link the the Past is a very very close second!

Gotta admit I was about to say the same, exact thing.

Also, I liked tha GBA version of Four Swords that came in the same cart as Link to the Past...specially when I get to play it with 3 of my drunk friends at home. lol ...It does somehow remind me of Goof Troop on the SNES.

Shemp
September 1st, 2006, 19:18
(notice how only 2 people have mentioned links adventure, the second one, before now, what was it people didnt like about that one?)

As far as I'm concerned, Link's Adventure was ugly and had no story. Perhaps it was the change from the original top-down presentation to a side-scrolling format. Or maybe I'm just trying to justify things after the fact--all I know is that I had a viscerally negative reaction to it, and to this day consider it to be the worst Zelda game.

No offense to any fans, natch. :)

September 2nd, 2006, 00:32
The original classic on the NES that started it all has got to be my favorite. Sure its not the most technically advanced or pretty Zelda game, but it was the first video game that drew me in and kept me hooked. To this day I still play the original in short bursts on the PSP thanks to NesterJ.

A link to the past on the SNES is amazing also. And I'm now for the first time enjoying Minish Cap thanks to Exophase and his incredible gpSP...

"Ocarina Of Time" is my favorite, followed closely by "A Link To The Past" on the SNES...

..."Windwaker" is ok, but I never really got into playing it (put it down after a week)
