7) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap


Released: Game Boy Advance (2004)

It’s rare that Nintendo is ever outdone by another developer when it comes to making games using its battery of characters and franchises, but Capcom managed to do just that when it created The Minish Cap. Taking the basic 2D, top-down gameplay of Link’s Awakening and A Link to the Past, and branching from its own solid Zelda Oracle games, Capcom delivered with The Minish Cap what would be the premier take on classic series’ gameplay for years to come. Capcom loaded the game with deviously challenging dungeons, an addictive sidequest in the form of fusing Kinstone pieces, and some innovative new weapons and items for Link that would go on to heavily influence his inventory in Skyward Sword. Combined with the game’s perspective changing shrinking and growing mechanic, and The Minish Cap left quite the mark. Here’s hoping Capcom can get another crack at the series, one day!

    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.
