I haven't been this excited to play a game in ten fucking years, so I thought I'd make a thread.

I should have left my phone at home 'cause this is a disaster.
I've purposely avoided all trailers except the reveal and namedrop trailers for BOTW so my excitement level is about 10%. Being careful not to get overhyped.


To answer your question I'd say Wind Waker is my favorite. From the great visuals, to the characters, to the music, it's all so good. Completing the Nintendo Gallery sidequest was probably my favorite side quest in it. It was nice taking photos and learning about all the characters.

Probably Twilight Princess.  I love the game's art style and more mature tone, the combat is the smoothest the series has seen so far, the temples were unique (Yeti mansion and Ooccoo world), and I thought it brought a lot of new and entertaining mechanics.  I remember making a save solely to play the horseback fight with that huge goblin forever.

I haven't jumped too far onto the hype train for BotW, but it's definitely going to be an insta-buy.  I'm still a little skeptical that the open world is going to feel a bit barren, but overall it looks like it's going to have some really solid gameplay with an amazing story.

Breath of the Wild looks incredible.

I always found Twilight Princess as the game that took from Wind Wakers combat, and tried to match Majora's Mask tone but didn't quite manage to do it. Solid game, but certainly not my favorite.

Certainly has the best Master Sword drawing/music though.

Normally, I'm the same way, but this time, I've actually taken to absorbing as much information about the game as possible. Skyward Sword was painfully disappointing, and it's been sixteen years since I've experienced genuine amazement with a game, so I'm just super thirsty.

Needless to say, Wind Waker is my favorite too. I've talked about this a lot, but it's one of only three games I've ever felt deserved a perfect 10/10. It just rocks my socks.

I actually just finished Oracle of Ages today, which inspired me to make the thread in the first place. Excellent game--I'd place it in my top 5 Zeldas for sure. That being, WW > MM > LttP > Zelda 2 > OoA. I'll play Seasons next, of course.

OoT and Wind Waker tie, though I suspect Majora's Mask would be in there if I could just get through the damn game.

Link's Awakening was my favorite gameboy game as a kid, though it felt less like Legend of Zelda and more like a generic Nintendo adventure game. Twilight Princess is also fantastic, but I really had to grind through Skyward Sword. The classic ones are also iconic, but they're so light on story it's difficult to compare to the others.

I know it's the typical answer, but for me, it really is my favorite. OoT. No game has ever made me feel the way OoT has. In fact, I wouldn't even put any games in a list with it that have come out in the past 10 years or so. No game has come close to it, or other games near its time. I know a lot of people don't like The Witcher 3. But now that I think about it, I would put that up there with OoT. TW3 was the best game I have played in years.

I lied, I'm not impressed. But then again, I'm a tough audience.
Wind Waker is my favourite, but I'm a Zelda newbie so what do I know. Didn't like Ocarina of Time, though.

But Breath of the Wild seems like it'll be awesome and I'm excited to play a Zelda game on release. Wii-U version for me.

haven't seen flee talk about quake NEARLY as much

it's just annoying when people don't shut up about how good it is. it actually puts me off of playing it out of a desire to distance myself from the person.

Just some bloke who wanted to be anyone but himself.
Wind Waker for the characters and story
Majora's Mask for the dungeons, sidequests, and the fact you have to schedule specific events.

No, sorry. It is my duty to spread the goodness that is The Witcher 3. Once again. Best game in YEARS. But it doesn't touch OoT. Maybe Cyberpunk 2077 will dethrone it.

But anyways. To be fair I guess I won't mention OoT. A Link To The Past is my favorite besides OoT.

I've actually been trying to play all the Zeldas I haven't played/beaten yet. Progress:

PlayedBeatenGame
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

I've also never played any spin-offs or anything outside the core series, incuding Link's Crossbow Training, Hyrule Warriors, or any of Tingle's games. I've also never played any of the CD-i games, despite owning a CD-i. I really want to try them out some day, but they're very rare and expensive, last I checked.

I'll probably never get to play Four Swords, because it's MP only and I'm not about to go around asking people if they want to play through an entire Zelda game with me--and even if I found someone like that, they'd probably be an unpleasant weirdo (because that's just my luck).

Wikipedia tells me that a special single-player edition of the game was actually released free for a limited time over the past few years, and every time, it slid under my radar. I'll be on the lookout from now on, because that's my only chance at playing this game.

As for Tri Force Heroes, I really don't even want to play it. I'm kinda sad that it even exists, to be honest. I'll probably pick it up if I see it for $10 or less.

I heard it's unlockable on G&W Gallery 4, which I have, so I could definitely play it.

Yeah, but you're gonna have to 5-star every game (classic/remake on both easy & hard) to even have the chance to play it.

OoT was the only Zelda to really catch my interest till now and I hate never getting to finnish it. I can't be bothered to attempt Majora's Mask. Timer mechanics trigger me as is so a game that is one big timer will probably cause me a nervous breakdown.

Not a big Zelda fan. Only ones I've really played were OoT and WW. Never finished either or even got very far into them. Too hard for a kid who doesn't speak the language.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
I've only ever played Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask

Majora's Mask is objectively the best.
