Mike Gordan says:
Yeah, sorry for the rush to a new thread, but I decided to post a list of the best Zelda games of all time. Here's the set of rules:

1. You get 2 up votes and 2 down votes, and can only vote once per day. Once a game hits 0, it's out of contention. You can use your 2 up and down votes however way you want.

2. No remakes or rereleases are considered for this list, nor any crossovers. Anything else is fair game including the CD-I games (due to this, I will not be taking any requests).

3. The same rules apply in all of my other games regarding mistakes; if one is made, I am in charge of editing them out. In the case of a goof up on your part, or on the part of another who skipped you, you can make the edits yourself.

Now with that said, here are the list of every official Zelda game released to date (20 if one counts the unofficial titles below Skyward):

The Legend of Zelda - 10
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link - 10
A Link to the Past - 10
Link's Awakening - 10
Ocarina of Time - 10
Majora's Mask - 10
Oracle of Ages/Seasons - 10
The Wind Waker - 10
Four Swords Adventure - 10
The Minish Cap - 10
Twilight Princess - 10
Phantom Hourglass - 10
Spirit Tracks - 10
Skyward Sword - 10
Link: The Faces of Evil - 10
Zelda: The Wand of Gamalon - 10
Zelda's Adventure - 10
Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland - 10
Link's Crossbow Training - 10
Irozuki Tincle no Koi no Balloon Trip - 10

+2 Ocarina of Time (arguably the pinnacle of video gaming most definitely deserves to win, especially over an almost exclusively mediocre franchise)
-2 Phantom Hourglass (painstakingly repetitive and tedious)

Umm, there is a Nintendo game that needs some more voters (note, go the last page of the thread, that's where the most recent vote is)

The Silver Star: I see. Well, then. I'll go over there and help out if I can, but if you're only doing this due to this thread, well, at least my thread has a consistent identity; every single official Zelda game in some way, shape or form, with the exception of crossovers and rom hacks.

Besides, I have too many games up and running, so once I close a game down, then I'll go over there and check yours out. I do promise though that, if I can't I'll send some of my friends over on my behalf.

And if a game is the ''best on that list,'' then it's the best game in the series, period. Why? Because outside of the few crossovers like Smash Bros. or Soul Calibur II on the Gamecube, I included literally every single solitary Zelda game. That means the most points that can be won in this game is 200.
