Vote: What's the best Zelda game?

Let us know ahead of Link's 30th birthday this weekend.

Oh, Link. You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you? You're about to hit 30.

The Legend of Zelda hits a certain significant milestone this coming weekend (I've heard that Ganondorf has hired a party bus and is going to be driving the whole crew down to Bournemouth for a weekender), and we thought it might be fun if we asked you to rank some of your favourite games in the series. We'll be posting the results next week, alongside our own editorial vote because it's always nice to know exactly how wrong we are. Be sure to let us know why you made your choices - we'll be compiling the answers in a similar fashion to our Reader's Top 50.

As for the games we've chosen, there's a selection of 18 that take in all the canon entries in the series as defined by Hyrule Hystoria, including recent entries A Link Between Worlds and Triforce Heroes. That means no Hyrule Warriors - although we'll admit it is awesome - no Tingle spin-offs - sorry chap! - and no Wand of Gamelon or Zelda's Adventure. Yeah, we're not so sorry about omitting those.

Voting closes on Monday morning at 11am. Have fun!
