The only ones I have legitimately 100%'ed are Links Awakening (Original Gameboy including all seashells) and a Link to the Past.

These days I don't bother with pieces of heart or mini games I don't like.

I've never cleared a Zelda game 100%. With Minish Cap I've been trying and I am pretty close, but I doubt I'll manage it.

Never have 100%'ed one. It's too tedious and some of those heart pieces in some of the games are ridiculous.

When I close my eyes, I see pixilated blood.

The last one I 100% was TP. I just don't have the free time anymore.

I think I did with ocarina, just cos I love the game so much.
But otherwise, I only ever 100% the game if there's some actual reward from doing so. In Zelda games, that surplus of time and energy is usually spent getting more heart containers. That has almost no purpose assuming you're good enough to complete the game with a regular number.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

No, just like with every game I play it until I am satisfied. I don't see 100% as the finish line. I will play a game until I cannot play it anymore. Sometimes that is 100% multiple times, sometimes that is after 1 hour of playing. I do plan to finish at least every Zelda game right now I have a few console Zeldas to finish then I will switch my focus to the handheld games. (although I have finished all of the Wind Waker Trilogy)

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Interesting stories. I have achieved 100% in some Zelda games but I admit sometimes it feels pointless, so you only should do it if you are enjoying every second of the game. For example, I love Ocarina of Time, but I still have one piece of heart to find in the 3D version and I don't know what piece is that, so I don't want to try to search for every single piece of heart again.

In Wind Waker HD if you get all the figurines it's only because you can't get enough of that game, it's not my case so I gave up that side quest but tried to get all the other stuff.

Majora's Mask is one of the few Zelda games I'd say it's really worth it trying to get everything.

Wow. There are a lot of people here very proud of meaningless achievements.

My answer would be not unless I really enjoyed them, and the game doesn't bore me before I've finished it completely. So far the only Zelda games I've played that tick those boxes are Minish Cap and A Link Between Worlds.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

Nothing is meaningless. Everything holds value to someone somewhere.

I was young when the very first Zelda came out, so the NES entries as a kid? No way. But Link to the Past, the first Gameboy one, and Ocarina I did. Twlight/Skyward and the newer DS ones I've played, but didn't 100%.

I got 100% on Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker (and maybe Majora's Mask) many years ago. That was back when I was quite young and I didn't have many games to play and I had a lot of time on my hands to do such things.
I think I got pretty close to 100% in Skyward Sword on hero mode, but I don't remember.

I don't see the point anymore, but I understand the desire.

I tend to be one way or the other with 100% completions. There are many Zelda games where I got 100% of all of the things I cared about, but not everything. For example, in Ocarina of Time, I have all 100 Skulltulas, All items and equipment including bottles, but not all Heart pieces. I don't think there is a single Zelda game i've gotten maximum hearts on. In fact, I have probably completed most Zelda games if you don't count the hearts.

Question: for those who 100% complete their Zelda games, do you use guides or look online at all? I am very adamant about staying away from outside help (unless its a friend playing with me who hasn't played it before me). Don't get me started about Sheikah Stones -.-. But I'd consider it pretty impressive to complete everything without help.

I rise from the ashes!

I don't. I didn't care about skulltulas, and I often don't care enough about heart pieces. The figurines in windwaker were definitely intended for another kind of gamer.

The Zelda games manage to feel complete to me even if I don't collect every single item, a feature it shares with the metroid series.

I did manage to 100% both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, which I am quite proud of! I usually get everything but one heart piece in Zelda games, and at that point I won't travel across the entire world for one heart piece. Takes too much time for my liking and I don't like using walkthroughs.

The only one I ever completed 100% was TP. Every other one has either gone completed or never finished. Problem with Zelda is there's can be a few ways of 100% it, for example, running through the entire game on just 3 hearts, never using potions, collecting every little trinket you can find, never dieing at all etc., I find if you can complete any Zelda game with just 3 hearts, you're pretty amazing. I only did it on TP and that was still pretty challenging, honestly... probably would never do that again.

I absolutely love the Zelda games, but there have been some that I just cannot finish. Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass are by far THE worst Zelda games I've ever played, they are atrocious. Wind Waker just wasn't for me, I just couldn't get into it. Majora's Mask, brilliant concept, brilliant story, masterpiece in its own right, but I just could not play it, let alone finish it.

As much as I've enjoyed the Zelda games I've completed, going for 100% might drag them out too much for me. Zelda tends to have the perfect length regardless of how many completions I've done, so taking more time during a completion for 100% isn't going to benefit my experience.

That's kind of how it is for me. Good pacing is important, and going around collecting things can stretch things out to an unnecessary degree. That said, I love collecting the Heartpieces in Zelda games, because it has an obvious benefit and there are usually challenges associated with them. But stuff like the skulltulas and Poes? Screw that...

I try to, but I haven't succeeded so far. In quite a few Zelda games, I gave up because one certain thing became way too annoying to bother with 100% the game.

-In Zelda 1, I somehow have never gotten to Ganon. I've explored 95% of Death Mountain, but for to this day I have not been able to get to or even find Ganon. I just get hopelessly lost.
-In OOT, I've never been able to get the final Giant Poe.
-In Majora's Mask, for some reason I could never find one of the holes for the "play the song for the 4 Gossip Stones" heart piece (which also meant I didn't bother to do the Mayor heartpiece because I didn't want to do the Kafei and Anju sidequest twice just to get the better ending). Not to mention that final Goron nonsense...
-In Minish Cap, I have no idea how to finish a certain sidequest. Yet I've done the awful seashell quest. TWICE.
-Twilight Princess, I never bothered to find some extra poe souls.
-And now ALBW, I probably won't do the streetpass thing, which gives you things technically! But I don't care, I'll get everything else and pretend it's 100% because **** you.
