Ranking Zeldas


So I finally finished Twilight Princess. I only actually play around 3 games a year. Last November I played Gears of War and since then this is the first game I've played. (looking at a demo does not count) I fully enjoyed it, I love the Zelda series but, in the end I thought it was one of the weaker Zeldas. I'd probably rank them

  1. Ocarina Of Time (N64)
  2. Wind Waker (GC)
  3. Link to the Past (SNES)
  4. Links Awakening (GB)
  5. Majora's Mask (N64)
  6. Twilight Princess (Wii/GC)
  7. The Legend of Zelda (NES)

I didn't really get into any of the others like 4 Swords or The Minish Cap or Oracle of Ages / Oracle of Seasons

I don't know if it was that Twilight Princess was actually not as good or if it's a matter of me being more jaded but when it ended I felt almost nothing where as "can a game make you cry?" well, I got teared up at end of Ocarina of Time, Link to the Past and Links Awakening. I thought the feeling of the final boss on Wind Waker was probably the best. Not the actual battle but the final blow I guess. Unfortunately Wind Waker blew it for me by just ending it there. No teary eyed reuinions.

Twilight Princess had some awesome stuff in it. The fighting on horseback blew me away the first time it came up and they managed to advance the series a little more again but I just never got into caring much about any of the characters. Not that the Zelda series has ever been all that deep in story but I can't put my finger on what was missing that made me not get into it as much as previous ones.

What's your ranking?
