Legend of Zelda
Being the original, it is obviously held very highly by me. Lots of hidden things, great dungeons, etc. For an NES game, this was awesome. It's also one of the only Zelda games that still provides a challenge for me. I kind of wish that the movement would be smoother, but again, it's an NES game.
It stars Link and has Zelda and Ganon, but doesn't feel like a Zelda game. If it were a new series, I think it would've been recieved better. However, with the lack of usable items, this game just isn't up there with the rest of them.
Link to the Past
This game was AWESOME. It's difficult, has a great story, nicely built dungeons, tons of items, and just lots of great stuff.
My first Zelda game, and also my favorite. Lots of humor and interesting stuff here. Also the first game to have companions (Bow-Wow, etc.). And it's not in Hyrule, which is kind of nice. The DX version added photos and a new dungeon, both of which were awesome.
Ocarina of Time
Most people like this game the best, and for obvious reasons. The first 3-D Zelda game was very in depth and boasted a new kind of Link - the Adult Link. Also, races other than Hylians were introduced, making the way for future games to have more diversity. The Master Quest was even better, because it gave me more of a challenge than the original.
At first, I hated this game because of the 3-Day system. However, it is now one of my favorites. Tons of sidequests and stuff to do. Plus the fact that you could be all of the different races - Goron rolling, Deku flying, and Zora swimming were all great.
Oracle of Ages/Seasons
The most underrated games in the series. Too few people have tried these games, and I think they're some of the best ones out there. With linking availability, there is more to do in this game than most of the others, and they're actually challenging. The ring system was also awesome.
Not what I was expecting, but still good. The storyline was too short, but there was a lot to be done. I think I would've liked it better if there was less time spent in the boat. The graphics didn't bother me at all.
Four Swords Adventure
This game is one of those that's Zelda, but not. There's a lot of hidden stuff and cool items, but it's too linear. There aren't really any side quests or anything. You got to play with your friends, but I never really did that anyway. Overall, it was fun, but not something I would play a lot.
This was a fun game. The music was awesome, and the new items were great. It was a bit too short, in my opinion, but it was still great to play and fuse Kinstones.
Another great game. I don't think it lived up to all of the hype it was given, but it was a lot of fun and very epic. Just not overly challenging.
This game was a good jump into the realm of stylus control. It had great islands and dungeons, even if they were a bit easy. The final boss was the most damaging Zelda boss I've played since Zelda II, which is definitely something. I still don't like Linebeck.
