10) The Legend of Zelda

Released: NES (1987)

The beginning of the Zelda series remains an engrossing and challenging game all these years later. For those fans who discovered The Legend of Zelda when it first dropped on NES, it was unlike anything that had come before it. The sense of freedom the game engendered was one of its biggest draws: Zelda made players feel like they were truly exploring the world of Hyrule. With minimal direction, players could complete the game in a range of different orders, solving puzzles and fighting beasts all along the way. It’s a milestone of the industry, and an incredible piece of the series’ history.

    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.
