Cracking game! Grin Came all the way up at fifth in my vote.  In my opinion, there's at least (probably only) one 2D Zelda to come that this is actually better than, bar the nostalgia value.  One of the very best games on the GBA.

I think there will be two 2D Zelda's in the last 7, one being ALBW which I'm guessing is the one your saying is actually is better then Minish Cap, where the other one that's likely to appear being LttP which has the nostalgia value but how many of us would have actually played it when it came out though, to have the nostalgia part from maybe ZeroBob.

Having said that, there's one other game that I don't think will place, but could throw my guesses into disarray. Otherwise I reckon it'll just be my top nine (Battle Quest was my tenth).

A couple of surprising results there - I didn't expect Four Swords on the list, but Minish is a pleasant surprise to see. It's one I've barely played (may have beaten the first dungeon, can't recall) but I enjoyed what I did play!

Number 7: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Death, mourning and the melancholy of the end of days pervade the number 7 placing, Nintendo's weirdest Zelda and the first spanner in the works for me trying to have a picture of Zelda herself for each game.

You're using Word?! Excel, baby, Excel! Shocked Wink

Also, if the shout out is to me (cos I fits the bill, and that), I only did it twice (which technically is 'repeatedly', I s'pose; bang to rights, guv - I'll come quietly) and the reason I didn't vote for it is because I haven't finished it. Voting for a game I haven't finished doesn't sit right with me.

I'd disagree, by a game, with this being the worst 3D Zelda.  But I'm surprised to see this coming so low (it was my sixth, and I'm not a huge fan of the game, I remember it being NGamer's favourite).  Still wasn't my favourite, but...  Well, the second comment is mine, says most of it already.

Neither, it features a timepiece. But I reckon we're safe from that one.

I tell you what, this is a great vote. If fan favourite Tajora's Task can't get in the top five, who knows what's coming next? Bounce

Number 6: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The Best Legend of Zelda - Page 5 Legend-of-zelda-the-a-link-to-the-past-02
SNES, GBA
38 points, 1 first

The game that created many of the series' iconic tropes, Super Nintendo's Link to the Past slips in at six.

Thank goodness it appeared here rather than any higher.  It came ninth on my list, the last "good" Zelda I've played before some "a'right" ones.  

While good, I feel LttP is often overrated in the modern day.  It's not like MM, where I'm not so keen on what it does - it just doesn't do what it does as well as ALBW or Minish Cap.  It feels soulless, lacking in character, compared to those games.  I feel like LttP rides a wave of nostalgia, from people such as commenter five, rather than standing up on its own merits in today's light.

BUT I know that Drunka is a positive man who likes positive comments.  I'm sure this was an absolute revelation at the time, the pixel art and soundtrack hold up okay in the light of the modern day, and even now it's a massive sprawling adventure, chock-full of secrets.  The world is enormous, very impressive for a SNES game, full of exploration to do and areas to seek out, without any of the handholding of later games.  (I used a walkthrough pretty thoroughly when I played it on the GBA. Embarrassed )  Not easy, either, even when you know what you're doing. Plus, it laid the groundwork for ALBW, and that alone merits some praise!

Let's guess the order of the top five!:

Boo-urns! This should've been higher.
Here's my guess at the top 5:

Yes. That would have been awful. Wink

On the other hand - my hand Grin - I had hoped that ALttP would squeeze into the top five, somehow. That not being the case, sixth is pretty respectable for a game that has divided the voters. I love it (it's my number 1 (I'm like a Wolf Link to get it (hope someone gets that (also aiming to break the current record for nested brackets in the forum (which is odd, because I don't know what the record is))))) because it was such a quantum leap for the series. Although that might place the game as more 'of its time' (the past?!) than 'of today', it still holds up pretty well, in my humble, unsubtle and often wrong opinion.

I think that's what the divide will be, for the most part - those who played it back in the day, and see the quantum leap (quanta are usually pretty small, how does that work? Eh? ); and those who played it now, and see it for what it is today.  With apologies to Jimbob and Zero: I just think the younger forumites' glasses are likely to be less rose-tinted here!

Don't worry, our turn to be rose-tinted will come later...

Slipping in just ahead of its predecessor, 3DS' open-world masterclass kicks off our top five!

Firstly, it's all good - ready to take the results when you're ready to deliver them. It's a great vote and I'm really enjoying it. Thumbs Up!

A 2D Zelda in the top five! Dance A game of remarkable innovation, perfectly suited to the handheld... in fact, easily in the top three 3DS games of all time. Nice! Cool

Huge jump in vote point from 6th to 5th there and guess that will be that last we will see of the 2D Zelda's unless there's a shock on the cards.

Yeah, I wasn't sure whether this would top SS. It deserved to in my mind, mostly for reasons I'll say when SS comes out undeservedly high - but ALBW was my third, my favourite 2D Zelda, my favourite 3DS game, and an absolutely blinding offering all round. Good show.

I've a funny feeling Skyward Sword won't rank...

Also, I was hoping to see ALBW a little bit higher, but top 5 is fine by me.
