Lack of a Zelda collection makes me a disapoint panda. Maybe it's because Nintendo knows every fan already owns several different versions of like, every Zelda game, unlike Mario where the original Bros. series was only re-released in NES form until the Wii version of All Stars.
What Nintendo doesn't realize is WE CAN NEVER OWN ENOUGH DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF EVERY ZELDA GAME.

Still, cool site. And I still DL'd those wallpapers instantly. Oldschool Master Sword, I command you; BADASS-IFY MY DESKTOP.

Yeah.

Midna, she's so adorably snarky!
Favorite Link
Twilight Princess Link, because I'm being a shallow fangirl
Favorite Girl(Like the one you are gonna save.)
Zelda
Favorite Boss
Gohma in OoT. it's hard to put into words, but the first time I played OoT I was having a disconnect between it and the older games. OoT was fun, but it didn't feel like a Zelda game. Everything was so different from the earlier games. Then I entered the boss room, the door slammed shut, Gohma dropped down and I went "OH!".
Favorite game exclusive item(Lens of truth, Pegasus boots, gale boomerang)
I'm drawing a blank :S
Favorite dungeon
I always liked the Forest Temple
Favorite music track
Saria's Song

ZELDA 2 IS THE WORST ZELDA. D: (RANT AHEAD!)

Spoiler! :
But in all seriousness, Zelda 2 is by far the most annoying and confusing Zelda game I've ever played and it may rank up to the most annoying game I've ever played. This game is ridiculously hard. Almost every enemy has a projectile attack (which, coincidentally, is usually a rock) or has the most annoying pattern that you have to beat them in, the "level" up system is confusing as hell considering I've leveled up my hearts and magic that causes no visual change but at the same time you can find upgrades for them in the game that actually DOES cause a visual change, and everyone is fucking useless. Seriously! Why are there so many NPCs in this game that do FUCKING NOTHING? You talk to someone, "Hi!" and that's it. Hell one time I was in the middle of a town and said hi to someone AND SHE TURNED INTO A FUCKING BAT AND KILLED ME. There was no way to even tell that would happen! This game would at least be tolerable if the enemies sometimes dropped health or something but NOPE. HERE'S SOME MAGIC. Even worse is when you defeat something of high experience and it just gives you magic. No experience, just the magic.

._.

Plus...I honestly can't even tell what the hell is going on. I don't really get any real explanation to the story or even what I'm doing in these dungeons. Figuring out how to even get to the first dungeon was just pure luck. I find it ironic that the dungeon you get the candle in requires you to go through a dark cave that you'd need a candle to get through or else the monsters in the dark just start destroying you, but I digress.

Honestly, I think this is just one entry I'm skipping permanently. I tried to play it before but just got confused and stopped. This time I got a little further but it's just not worth the torture.


To sum up, Zelda 2 is the one black sheep in the Zelda series that secretly hides an Uzi in it's wool. I'd stay away unless you know what you're doing.

Jesus, I can't hit a Darknut without the sword beam because I keep getting too close because of his short sword.

I like Zelda 2 for it's challenge but god damn it it gets confusing without feeding through unless dribble spewed from the quizah-retarded NPC's roaming around towns.

Ironknuckles are jokes once you get the downward thrust. :D
*EDIT*
... If I recall correctly that is. I may just be thinking of the boss version on the horse.
I do know it's either downward thrust or regular jump attacks. The key to Ironknuckles was jumping, I remember that much, haha.

I love this series, like there's no tomorrow. . .
But I guess that's the same for a bunch of people here, eh?

Favorite Game OoT was instantly shelved in favour of Majora's Mask when I got it. At least, that's how I remember it. . . So, MM, Minish Cap, and Ages/Seasons, probably.

Favorite Helper(The ones that pester you) Probably Spirit Tracks' Zelda. Or Midna in the second half of the game (she really really grated on my nerves at first haha).

Favorite Link ... No idea haha. Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks Link looks so adorable. But Ordon Link's outfit appeals to me~ Come to think of it, probably TP Link. Wolf form + charging at the guards in Castle Town = giggles aplenty. Am too easily amused by far.

Favorite Girl(Like the one you are gonna save.) Maybe PH' Tetra? ... Neh, I don't really know. -shrug-

Favorite Boss That dragon thing in the sky in Twilight Princess, maybe? Or that spinner-oriented boss in that sand place of the same game. Goht and that huge lava dude in... Spirit Tracks (?) that you had to ride the tracks around were pretty fun, too.

Favorite game exclusive item(Lens of truth, Pegasus boots, gale boomerang) Spinner? Or double clawshots hehehe. -swings about- Pegasus seeds. And, albeit not game exclusive, Roc's feather/cape have always been quite well used on my end.

Favorite dungeon Not a clue =/ My memory isn't that good, really.

Favorite music track: This. Is. The hardest question here! For me, at least. I think I love just about every Zelda song to death =I But, ah, lessee--
Minish Village (Minish Cap) - As soon as I heard it and entered that place, I think Minish Cap won my heart as one of my top LoZ games.
Song of Storms/Windmill Hut - Infinite <333
Dark World Overworld (aLttP) - not much to say, I just find this real easy to drift away to. . .
Gerudo Valley - More infinite <333
Tarm Ruins - I almost forgot this one. Not quite sure how.
Dragon Roost Island - Not sure how I found this one, as I've yet to play much of Wind Waker (so hard to get my hands on it ;-; arrrghhhhh), but. Oh man. No words can describe that awesome feeling I get when I listen to this song :3

Honourable mentions to: Vaati's battle themes, Zora's Domain, Stone Tower, Goron City, Nayru's theme, Sacred Grove, Song of Healing, and Lon Lon Ranch. And. Uh. Almost every other song too. |3

edit;; will link songs once I get on a better computer =I youtube would kill this one, heh...

You must find WW. It's insanely fun. Toon Link really shined in Wind Waker.

I kinda like Zelda II actually. I'm better at it than Zelda 1 or Metroid. So far I've done the first palace, and most recently got caught off guard by one of those bat villagers and died. But at least it probably won't happen again. I mean, obviously there'll be more bat villagers, but this time I'll always heal first and then talk to everyone.

My only word of advice to people new to Zelda 2; Don't pick up the Link Dolls early in the game. Once you grab one it's gone, baby. No going back to grab it again.
Once I learned that I decided I'd save them all for right before the final Temple and Dark Link.

Oh, and since I missed this post earlier;
