Ranking the series: The Legend of Zelda

Hey, guess what comes out today?! A NEW ZELDA GAME! Woo hoo!

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for the Nintendo DS hits stores today and I really can’t wait to dive into Link’s newest adventure. While some people had trouble falling in love with the last Zelda game on the DS, Phantom Hourglass, I personally adored it. I felt the touch-screen controls worked brilliantly, and it really made things that were starting to feel old-fashioned in Zelda games (i.e. throwing the boomerang) seem fresh and exciting.

So, in honor of Spirit Tracks’ release, I thought it would be fun to rank all the games in the Zelda series, from my least favorite to my most favorite. Yeah, this is going to cause a lot of controversy, but, hey, what’s a good list without a little Internet arguing, right?

Keep in mind that when talking about The Legend of Zelda series “least favorite” translates into “the game is still a 10 out of 10 and amazing, but even in a bakery full of delicious cakes, there has to be some cakes that are slightly less delicious than the chocolate mousse one sitting on the top shelf.”

Make sense? Here we go!

13. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Game Boy Color)
12. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (Game Boy Color)
11. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)
10. The Legend of Zelda (NES)
9. The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (GameCube)
8. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Game Boy Advance)
7. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo 64)
6. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii)
5. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)
4. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Game Boy)
3. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (Nintendo DS)
2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)
1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

What do you think? Do you agree with my choices? Which ranking do you disagree with the most? What is your list of favorite Zelda games (it's harder to rank them than you think)? Are you excited about playing The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks?
