We all have a list of our favorite Zelda games. Our favorite Zelda games are those that have had a large impact on us, be it as a gamer or on a more personal level. Compiling a top 10 Zelda list is no easy task, with so many great games in the series. GameTrailers has rose to the challenge, and has put up a video of their top 10 Zelda games of all time, with a detailed description of why each Zelda game is where it is on the list. Which games made it onto the list? Where do your favorites land? Hit the jump to find out!
The list has both surprising, and not-so-surprising moments. Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past are ranked at number one and two respectively, which comes as no surprise. Both games are often times hailed as being the premier games in the Zelda series, and which game is considered better varies depending on who you talk to. Link’s Awakening makes it to number 3, which is a bit surprising, considering that it is ahead of both The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, two games which have been massively praised in recent years. Nonetheless, Link’s Awakening is a great Zelda game in its own right and I’m sure many fans will appreciate it being placed so highly on the list. To me, it is surprising how low The Wind Waker is ranked, especially considering its resurgence in popularity over the past few years. However, this is simply one list by one entity, and it is interesting to see how different people rank certain Zelda games!
