Top Ten Best Things About The Legend of Zelda Games


The Top TenXW

1The Storyline

I LOVE THIS SERIES because its a lot like lost you make your way through a unique world in every game no two games have the same map and every game they give you just enough answers to be satisfied but at the same time raise even more that make you have to keep playing to understand I've had so many debates with a friend over what means what probably the most fun I have debating is which game came first skyward or OOT?

Story is in my opinion the most important thing in a game (ahead of gameplay I'd say). Legend of Zelda is certainly no exception to that. - CoyRex1

Story is an important aspect of every game, but story... isn't always the greatest in the Zelda series. I can name 9 games in the main series that don't have a great story, if not a one-note story.
I don't understand why this is number 1. This doesn't really drive people to play Zelda. - CreepyPastaT10

Especially in Majora's Mask.

2The Dungeons

Without the dungeons, the game wouldn't be as long, as awesome, as fun, as challenging, and as musically creative as it would be with it. Zelda dungeons are one of the main reasons I like the Zelda franchise.

THIS is what drives people to play the Zelda series, something that it has that's unique that no other game series has.
You don't hear praise for OOT because of its music. You hear praise because of its masterful dungeons, such as Forest Temple and Spirit Temple.
You don't hear praise for TP because of its story. You hear praise because of its Snowpeak Ruins, Hyrule Castle, and others.
Dungeons is what really drives the Zelda series. For god's sake, people such as Axle the Beast, me, and a few others write dungeon reviews for that reason. - CreepyPastaT10

3The Bosses

I like how the monsterous things are created.

Stallord, Helmasaur King, Zant, Ganondorf, Majora... the list goes on and on. - CreepyPastaT10

You don't hear of a Zelda game with terrible combat. - CreepyPastaT10

4The Adventure

With my second choice being the story-line, I love Zelda games for the exploring aspect. I love riding across the over-world more than I will ever enjoy the convenience of portals (like in Twilight Princess) simply because I love it. I love The Legend of Zelda because I can explore a beautiful, unpolluted, imaginary land, something I will never do outside of the T.V..

Whether your traveling across the Gerudo Desert, solving the challenges of Stone Tower temple, or just riding across the Great Sea, the exploration and feeling of being an adventurer is something that will never leave your side.

5The Items

The items are great! The things they add to combat are what keep me coming back! I loved the sandbox-ish feel you got from Wind Waker when you felt like you could do anything with the items at your disposal! - Oreanta

the items are the base for the whole game - moose4life19

6The Music

The music is fantastic! You know you've got great music when it sends a chill down your spine!

I feel the music in any source of entertainment just makes it, for me an epic soundtrack is the key to a great game experience

Go to YouTube now. Search Legend Of Zelda songs. PREPARE TO BE AMAZED!

I'm surprised the music isn't higher.

8Solving Puzzles

The amazing puzzles are so much fun and when you beat them you laugh and then there are even more harder puzzles to have fun with.

9Killing Things

Zelda would be the main rival of Miles "Tails" Prower in a Sonic vs. Zelda game.

The Contenders

11Collecting Heart Containers
12Bonus Items
13Turning Into a Wolf

Link is the best as a wolf! Especially because it brings out many new things such as talking to animals, digging into places, fighting certain monsters, and having Midna!

Gives a whole different advantage in which ever situation your in. you can choose which form you take later, but sometimes it's required which action it is. it really depends how far along you are.

Twilight Princess not only improved upon Ocarina Of Time and The Windwaker, but it added this amazing mechanic! - HeavyDonkeyKong

16The Weapons
17Exploring the World
18The Graphics

Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D and Wind Waker have great graphics. Twilight Princess was very realistic for its time.
