1. Link to the Past
2. Legend of Zelda (NES)


I don't really know how to rank them past that. I haven't beat Ocarina of Time. I know that's top dog for a lot of people. Some people really like Majora's Mask but I haven't even played it. Twilight Princess was really fun. Wind Waker was meh from what I played. Skyward Sword is pretty good from what I've played.

I also really like Adventures of Link for NES. It was different but it's still a classic to me.

The Wind Waker

(I apologize, Ocarina of Time comprised the majority of my childhood, and from that time I've never taken the time to dabble in the 2D Zelda experience.)

Skyward Sword is one amazing game. Ocarina of Time was good, but I think Skyward Sword is the best there is. Hacking and slashing using the Wii remote as a sword is just the funnest thing ever.

It's a great game. So was Legend of Zelda. People just wanted the sequel to be the same game and the same format and instead they went to a platformer.

It's a great platformer, but it suffered from 'nintendo power' syndrome like many NES games.

Still, If I want to play a NES platformer I'll just stick to Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden.

Out of the ones I've played when I was a kid:


1-The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (I beat this one so many times, it was one of my fav SNES games ever)
2-Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (Played it all of the time. It was extremely difficult, and I could never beat it)
3-The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (I was starting to grow out of video games and into girls, so I only went through this game once)
4-The Legend of Zelda (Went through the game a couple of times. It lost some luster due to the awesomeness of the Dragon Warrior series)
5-The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (I played this on the black and white gameboy while on a vacation roadtrip with my parents. It helped pass the time)


If I had to choose one to play again today it would be Zelda II, because I never could beat it.

The final castle with the fallen angel and the shadow link at the end was spectacular. I could beat it, but it took me awhile. A Link To The Past, by way of comparison, was terribly easy. I love a Link To The Past, it was a great game, good length without going overboard BUT... the gameplay and fighting the enemies was just too damn easy. That let to more people playing thru it, beating it, which I'm sure made it more popular. But Zelda II's sidescroller format, while highly frowned upon, was made challending by the creators, AND it's the only Zelda like that, which makes it original.

To everyone who puts A Link To The Past above Zelda II - it's not so much the sidescroller format, as much as it is cause you can actually beat A Link To The Past, isn't it?

At the time of it's release, the graphics were fantastic and I loved the story line. It was one of the first RPG's I played on SNES so I played it A LOT. I only rank it #1 due to its sentimental value.


Like Final Fantasy. I would still rank FF3 over any other... even FF7.
FF3 was the first in the series that I played. I loved the characters and storyline of the Espers. Kefka was boss!
FF7 brought the game a whole new life on Playstation. It was HUGE and I loved it... but based on sentimental value... I would choose to play FF3 again anyday.

Fantastic post, great points all of them.

I too rank FFIII over FFVII for all of the reasons you listed above.

I would also rank A Link To Past over Ocarina Of Time for the exact same reasons.

Link To The Past and Zelda I and II all share the exact same sentimental value to me. Zelda II, IMO, was by far the most challenging of the three, and I always felt more "lost" and "someplace else" there than i did in one or three, which is why I think it's my favorite Zelda. i dont view the sidescroller format as either an advantage or disadvantage, something about Zelda II made me feel more like I was "on a quest" than the others, dont know what.

I agree it was a great story, but it was on Gameboy which drops its ranking for me. If it was on a normal console, it would've had a lot better replay value.

I started playing Link to the Past on my phone last week, and realized how much I suck at action games on the phone. So I fired up the emulator on my PC at home, hooked up the xbox 360 USB adapter and have been playing the crap out of it. It really was a great game for the time, and it's still a lot of fun to play.

I love the kind of open world games where you get equipment upgrades that let you back track and access the areas you couldn't access previously. It's like "Hell yeah, I got the hookshot! Now I can back to that one place that had the chest across the chasm that I couldn't get to before." That's why I really loved the Metroid series. Super Metroid was awesome, and Metroid Prime is probably tied with Ocarina of Time as my favorite console game of all time.

What could possibly be disappointing about Skyward Sword?

1. It's repetitive nature. I don't need to kill two bosses multiple times with almost the same tactics minus one small minute change.

2. No challenge. Beat it literally with a ton of hearts in a matter of days, never getting hung up on a single puzzle.

3. No real side quests to speak of. Once I beat the game it was done for me, I didn't have the desire to play through hero mode.

4. Story. Honestly kind of bland, starts out great enough with a fresh take on the classic storyline but just degraded over the course of the game.

5. Dungeon progression. The first three dungeons are brutally easy with the last dungeons being the better ones. It shouldn't take half the game or more to discover greatness in any game.

7. Traveling around. The reason Wind Waker was a bore to me was sailing around a boring sea all game long with the only rest coming from being on a green island that looked like all the others or a dungeon. I loved Wind Wakers art style, as I loved Skyward Swords, but when a big chunk of the game is spent traveling from point A to point B, I hate looking at the same boring backdrop.

8. Boss battles. Namely the last one, besides the repetition of killing two bosses three times each in very similar ways, there were few boss battles that were well designed. The end boss battle, I really didn't care for and it really wasn't even a multiphase fight, that just signals laziness in my point of view. Where is the multiform Gannon-esque boss battle at the end? Every single Zelda game out there has a better ending boss battle than this one.

So I go into a room with a sky and water on the floor and fight someone who is supposed to be the evilest baddie ever who I spent the entire game trying to not let get released and the only change to the fight was his fighting style midway through and some rain, lightning and thunder? It's exactly like the Shadow Link fight in Ocarina in the Water Temple only the weather changed. It was aweful in my opinion.

I don't like Nintendo because of what they've become, a company that relies on gimmicks over great games. The motion control gimmick was what Skyward Sword was all about, and NOT telling a Zelda story the way it should've been told. IMO they should've taken their time and done it right and put it on the Wii U as a launch title instead of a throw away game on a dying system. I honestly don't think Nintendo will make it out alive after this system but that's just my opinion.

I'm critical of Skyward Sword because every other Zelda game I bought at midnight or the morning after on release all the way back to The Legend of Zelda has had elements that this game short changed on or just decided to leave out, and in that regard I found it to be disappointing and I pray that the next one will focus on the story and not the Wii U's ability to throw things at the screen from the controllers.

On a side note, I'm playing Castlevania Symphony of the Night right now, and it's quite fucking awesome. I bought it when it first came out. I remember my brother and I each got to pick a PS1 game. He got SOTN and I got Nightmare Creatures or some shit. We ended up playing SOTN a lot more, needless to say.

He ended up conquering it, and I played it from time to time, but I never got to the upside down castle.

I could be wrong, but I think there was a limited edition gold cartridge of that game that's worth a pretty penny now days. So you might have seen that. Either that or it's still in its original wrapper. If it's neither of those things, then I have no idea. A game store down the street has a used copy of it for like 30 bucks.

Not sure about the island (Wind Waker's world was an open sea with a bunch of islands), but Majora's Mask had a clock that you had to keep track of. Certain events only happened at certain times over a 3-day period. I think the game was over at the end of the third day, but you could play a song at any time to take you back to the beginning of the first day. That was also the game that had about a dozen or different masks that you could wear.

I seem to remember Majora's Mask being much harder than Ocarina of Time.

The end boss battle, I really didn't care for and it really wasn't even a multiphase fight, that just signals laziness in my point of view. Where is the multiform Gannon-esque boss battle at the end? Every single Zelda game out there has a better ending boss battle than this one.

So I go into a room with a sky and water on the floor and fight someone who is supposed to be the evilest baddie ever who I spent the entire game trying to not let get released and the only change to the fight was his fighting style midway through and some rain, lightning and thunder? It's exactly like the Shadow Link fight in Ocarina in the Water Temple only the weather changed. It was aweful in my opinion.

I don't like Nintendo because of what they've become, a company that relies on gimmicks over great games. The motion control gimmick was what Skyward Sword was all about, and NOT telling a Zelda story the way it should've been told. IMO they should've taken their time and done it right and put it on the Wii U as a launch title instead of a throw away game on a dying system. I honestly don't think Nintendo will make it out alive after this system but that's just my opinion.

I'm critical of Skyward Sword because every other Zelda game I bought at midnight or the morning after on release all the way back to The Legend of Zelda has had elements that this game short changed on or just decided to leave out, and in that regard I found it to be disappointing and I pray that the next one will focus on the story and not the Wii U's ability to throw things at the screen from the controllers.

I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with you on almost every count, you're entitled to your own opinion, but after Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword rekindled my faith in the Zelda franchise.

I'm stuck in the dungeon where you get the wind blower thingy. It's been a while since I've played it so I can't get specific, but yeah...that's where I hit a wall. I'm thinkin about playing it tonight to try to get past that part. I was really enjoying the game up until this dungeon.

I'm old, but "Link to the Past" is, and will probably always be, my favorite game of the series. It's one of my favorite games of all time.

It's got a really cool "Help me!" feature, in case you didn't know. There's a stone statue looking thing beside the sparring hall in the town. If you get stuck, go to that thing and ask for a hint. It will literally show you exactly what to do.

Also, here's a really good walkthrough I found, that you can use as a last resort. I try not to resort to the hints, but sometimes it's impossible.

I still put Link to the past first, then Ocarina of time. That's only because of how great link to the past was when it came out. Loved that game.

How could you not have beaten Ocarina of Time?

I don't know. N64 was a time when I really didn't play games as much as I used to, and when I did, I typically played PlayStation. Almost always a sports game like Madden or something. Then every time I've tried to go back and play it, I always end up playing for a bit, determined to beat it, but then I take a break and never get around to going back to it. I'll beat it one of these days. I guess that game isn't as captivating to me as it is to most.

So I was playing Ocarina last night. I'm at a part where I had to find Saria in the Lost Woods or whatever her name is. She gave me a song to play whenever I want to talk to her. Now I don't know where to go or what to do though. It's been such a long time since I've played that I don't remember where I'm at in the game.

Also I've been playing Skyward Sword off and on the last few days. I got past the dungeon where you fight the crab boss. The one where you have to unbury him with the sand blower thingy. So I'm totally back into that game now. It's pretty good.

YMMV = Your mileage may vary = different for everyone

bugs bunny cutting off florida is a .gif that has been floating around the internet for over a decade. no one likes florida... it is a shit hole of old people and the home of the bottom 10% of the American IQ spectrum.

recently billay posted it and has reveled in the fact that it got a few people to chuckle, leading him to act as if he had traveled back in time, drew the cartoon, then forwards in time, created the .gif, then back to the present where everyone is enjoying his masterpiece.

Not a chance. Square-Enix has taken a huge shit on the Final Fantasy brand the last couple of years.

Yeah, I played the latest (XIII?) and they completely lost me with the characters and story.

Of course, maybe it's always been Final J-Pop Fantasy and I'm just getting old.

XIII was an okay game (I guess) and they at least made money off it. Now XIV on the otherhand, it basically put Square-Enix on its knees and they've already admitted it has done un-fixable damage to the franchise.

They'd be wise to do some sort of continuation of the FF7 storyline with the same characters.

I'd buy that.

Also I'm not sure if I've already added my 2 cents, but Ocarina of Time is probably in my top 5 of all time. Link to the Past was great as well.

Never played any of the others.
