The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, and has arguably been responsible for some of the best video games ever created. Since the launch of the original game back in 1986, we've seen the series move from 2D to 3D with assured competence, and this year we'll see a crossover release — in the shape of Hyrule Warriors — which will attract an entirely new generation of fans.
Next year, the franchise will take another evolutionary step with an open-world Wii U entry, so we thought there was no better time to look back on this beloved lineage and ask the all-important question: which is the best entry in the Zelda series so far?
Below you'll find a list which contains all key individual Zelda games, though we've made judgement calls in excluding some re-releases while included others that could be considered as remasters, and also opted to just include one of the Four Swords portable releases; the CDi games are also out, because they're terrible and, more importantly, were released on third party hardware.
Cast your vote for the one you believe in your heart of hearts to be the best instalment, and we'll publish the results in the not-too-distant future.
