2) The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Released: GameCube (2002)

It’s funny how time can heal all wounds. Once upon a time, The Wind Waker was reviled by fans and critics alike for its cartoon-like visuals, lampooned for dumbing down the series before it ever even hit store shelves. 12 years later and following the remake of the game in HD, Wind Waker is very close to being the pinnacle of the Zelda franchise. The game so many hastily dismissed revealed itself as an intelligent, bold turn for Zelda as a whole. Wind Waker made narrative strides that current games can’t even come close to with full voice acting. Not only that, but the game evolved the core 3D gameplay established in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, refining it into something far more elegant and intuitive. Though sailing can be overly long for some (which Nintendo addressed, for the most part, with Wind Waker HD), and the toon graphics are still not everyone’s cup of tea, Wind Waker is a true masterpiece.

    Nice list, and it had to be pretty tough to rank so many beloved gems! I’d put Link’s Awakening higher and Minish Cap lower (maybe even kick it off the list and include the Oracle duo) but everything here is solid.

    Spirit Tracks remains the one Zelda title I haven’t finished. Every time I pick it up, I’m quickly turned off by the central Tower of Tedium. If the otherwise fun and memorable Phantom Hourglass hadn’t had a similar Basement of Boredom, I’d have tried to squeeze it into a top ten.
