    Legend of Zelda
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Each game is essentially a remake of the first.

    The other games, even the likes of Windwaker, are just gaiden.

    Darksiders is the best Zelda game.

    There's only actually one true Zelda game.

    The first 3DO game.

    Link's Awakening DX is all you need.

    All you need.

    Okami is the only Zelda game you'll ever need.

    There are no true Zelda games. It's only Zelda when Link says "Well excuuuse me, Princess."

    If they are side-stories, then how are they remakes?

    Now this is storytelling

    The best Zelda game was the NES game, followed by the Game and Watch game.

    Everything else is gay, Den.

    That looks like one of Mongo's unboxing videos.
    So glad he took the time to show us the back of the console.

    Well Twilight Princess was a tired retread of Ocarina so that can be discounted. In terms of story, they've all been pretty much the same schtick.

    Haven't played Skyward Sword yet mind.

    And side-stories, sorry gaiden, doesn't make them any less truer.

    The only thing i'll say is that after reading the Hyrule Historia, TP and LoZ/LTTP sit in different timelines, so doesn't that make TP a side-story too?

    Quite frankly if Link: Faces of Evil, Zelda: Wand of Gamelon and Zelda's Adventure aren't considered canon then I'm done with the series.

    I always wondered why there was a 'legend of zelda', unless the legend was 'silly tart who keeps getting kidnapped'.

    Maybe the mario games should be called 'the legend of peach'

    What does the Hyrule Historia have to say about this?

    Well Darksiders II was a departure from that old formula, so it's hardly embarrassing that he didn't include it.

    The official entry says 'the legend relates to zeldas very perculiar lack of a gag reflex'

    They all seem the same to me.
    I probably shouldn't be in this thread, but frankly I can't understand this obsession of the West with the Zelda franchise. I don't see why this should be THE ultimate gaming experience of all time.
