Here are the Best Zelda Games
Legend of Zelda’s video game series is one of our favorite action-adventure series. Adventure gaming fans like me have been working to save Princess Zelda, the evil captor, since the late 1980s. Now, as I am awaiting the fifteenth installment (not counting spinoffs and remakes), it seemed like a good idea to list my top four Zelda merch video games.
1. Ocarina to Time
Majora’s Mask was two years later and followed the game in 1998. (more later). The setting was the Hyrule Kingdom. It was also the first Zelda game that went 3D. This changed gaming forever. There were tons and tons of side-quests that featured great boss battles with Shadow Link. Gannon’s boss fight with Shadow Link was the most impressive, only beating Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.
2. Majora’s Mask
It’s hard to follow a great act. Majora’s Mask, the storyline sequel of Ocarina of Time, comes in a close second. Although it is darker, it is still unique. It’s all about transformations such as the Bunny Hood that double Link’s running pace. You’ll feel great pressure to complete the adventure, with the 72-hour ticking clock counting down to the end.
3. Twilight Princess
Twilight Princess beats Ocarina. It took Nintendo almost a decade, however, to achieve this. TP is much larger than Wind Waker, is darker and is far more difficult. It is harder to collect hearts and more difficult for enemies to inflict severe damage on Link. Although it lacks voice acting and orchestrated musical accompaniment, the game is still very enjoyable.
4. A link to the past
Shigeru Mikamoto managed this entire collaboration. Shigeru Miyamoto reversed the perspective to the overhead while adding new elements, innovations and features that would be staples in later games like Hookshot, the flute, and the Pegasus boots. The A Link to the Past introduced the concept of two parallel worlds through which you could travel: the Light World (which contains Hyrule) and the Dark World. Ganon destroyed the Sacred Realm by acquiring the Triforce.
