Worst Zelda Games

Every Zelda game is great in it's own unique way (except for the cdi) but there are just some you don't feel like finishing sometimes.

The Top TenXW

1Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

This game is by far the worst Zelda game in the series and I'm surprised that this has only about 20% of the votes. Seriously if you hate any other Zelda game then you obviously haven't played this one. Close to one of the WORST GAMES EVER

Nintendo didn't actually make this game. It was made by a crappy company who also brought you Link: The faces of Evil and Hotel Mario. I can't remember the company name because no one on the face of the earth enjoys their games.

Somebody take Wind Waker off! And Gamelon sucks

So Bad It's Hilarious

2Link: The Faces of Evil

IT SHOULD BE HIGHER! Faces of evil is the worst zelda game. And WHY ARE SKYWARD SWORD AND WIND WAKER EVEN ON THIS LIST?!?! SS being number 7 is one thing but WW being NUMBER 1 IS RIDICULOUS!

The character voices are stupid and awful and the mid-scenes are just ridiculous.
Who cares if "GIRLY" Link can do the duck walk, it just looks stupid and weird.


I hate this game. its one of the worst Zelda games ever.

This games is a pile of trash. The only thing we got from it was "mah boi"

3The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Ocean kings temple too long, enough said

I agree this was the game that got me in zelda I agree it is hard but you babies can't beat it

You have to do the Temple of the Ocean King 6 times. SIX. . TIMES!

4The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

People are STILL hating on this game? Wow, I thought we were past that. This game is an awesome game, and a lot of people would say it is the best Zelda game.. I think it is the 2nd best Zelda game after Ocarina of Time.

Who voted for this game? Because it has perfect motion plus controls, vibrant colors, great characters, an amazing story, and endless fun. Don't vote for Skyward Sword!

I think people are really confused. You are voting for it and posting comments about how it is good. This game was awesome. This is a worst games list.

Best game in the franchise

5Zelda's Adventure

I can't believe Zelda's Adventure is top 10! Seriously, this game sucks.

This isn't even a legit Zelda game

Zelda's Adventure sucks and is too different from the other CD-i games!

This should be #1. - MKFlame7

7The Legend of Zelda: The Four Sword

I have a deep hatred for this game not only was I not able to play by myself, but I couldn't find anyone who had this game. After looking at a walkthrough the game seems incredibly short and is set up as a stage select instead of an adventure requiring you to travel at your own pace. The only thing this game is worth getting for is the Link to the Past game that came with it. Which by the way was my favorite of the franchise.

Four toon links how can that be possible?

8The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Screw all of you who is saying it's the worst game

Whoever made this list is a flat-out idiot with no sense of a good game or adventure!

Why do you hate this game? Screw you for whoever put this game on this list

How is this bad

10The Legend of Zelda 2: Link's Adventure

In my opinion this could have taken out the franchise, and its only the 2nd game!

12The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This game is amazing and in my opinion one of the best games of all time. also I hate everyone who said that its bad

I thought the story in this one was amazing and creepy- almost as good as in Twilight Princess. But the graphics sucked, the game was short (four dungeons! ) and the gameplay was annoying and dumb. The masks themselve sucked. Worst Zelda game ever! (though Four Swords, Faces of Evil, Phantom Hourglass, Ghost Tracks, and Wand of Gamelon suck too. ) How did Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Ocarina of Time get here though? Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess are two of the greatest Zelda games ever (and my personal favorites) and though Ocarina of Time is overrated, it isn't bad.

What the heck one of the best games ever o see how it is there are only three games in the series that is bad the rest of the list is good games

3 Day Time Limit. All I have to say. - MKFlame7

13The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Is the best one both for the gamecube and wii the wii one is mirrored

This is one of the best Zelda games how did it get here

This game had a creepy world and story and midna is the best character in any Zelda game.

One word to describe this game: BORING!

14The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Is this a sick joke!? Why is this on the list?

Though it is a bit overrated, ocarina is still a great game!

Get this, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword off of the list. Never played Majora's Mask or Wind Waker, but most people seem to like it, so get them off the list too.

This game is a fantastic game and deserves al it's praise it's not overrated it's a game that must be played at some point in life

15The Legend of Zelda (Original Game On the Nes)

This game is amazing, I don't know how it got on here because it is one of the best Zelda games and anyone who hates it sucks at life.

AMAZING is the only way to describe this game.

17The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Ocarina of time and link between worlds don't deserve to be here

Are you kidding? This is a great game!

18The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Master Quest)

Ocarina of Time is the best Zelda game, and a lot of people can agree. But Master Quest, oh god. The puzzles are insanely stupid. Stalfos everywhere, poking things with your hookshot as a "puzzle", and downright annoying dungeons.
