This week was an interesting one for Nintendo. First, everyone’s favorite Italian from Brooklyn turns out for the Apple press conference and announces Super Mario Run. Then while looking for someway to kill time at work this morning, I noticed that “Top 5 Zelda Games” was trending on Twitter. I’ll give my top 5 at the end of this article, because you’re so curious! I will say this, since the internet can have a Zelda debate about the best Legend of Zelda out of the blue, it just goes to show how great these games and franchise is!

Majora’s Mask was also trending since most of the masses who participated with this hashtag have Majora’s Mask as their top Zelda game or in their top 5. Majora’s Mask is an enjoyable Zelda game but it never occurred to me that it had the fan following to appoint it “the top” Zelda game! One could argue that it does have a cult-like following, what with the various fans requesting a Majora’s Mask remake back when Operation Moonfall was in full gear. Majora’s Mask is one of the more challenging Zelda games and you have to be on your game to complete it. There are plenty of side quests to perform as well as that sinking feeling in your gut that the world of Termina will end in three days, since the moon is going to crush everyone. No pressure!

Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for, and my own contribution to the “Top 5 Zelda Games” Twitter trend, here are my top five Zelda games!

  1. Ocarina of Time
  2. A Link To The Past
  3. Legend of Zelda-NES
  4. Majora’s Mask
  5. A Link Between Worlds
