Nostalgia = Ocarina of Time
Face value = Majora's Mask.
Those would be very closely followed by like, all of the rest of the series. ('Cept the first one, oddly enough. Link to the Past was my first Zelda game, and going back to the first always feels like playing a vastly inferior LttP, which causes me to lose interest in minutes.)
I guess Oracle of Seasons will probably always hold an extra special place in my heart, even though at face value I love games like LttP and WW just as much.
Oracle of Seasons was just one of those games, man... The kind that wasn't just an amazing game I happened to try out one day... It captured my heart long before it came out, and me and my friends were all obsessed over it. A game like Paper Mario and Kingdom Hearts, that I would seek out new Game Informer, (well in this case and the case of Paper Mario, Nintendo Power,)
magazines like crack to get more info for, and wait and wait and wait for a release date, building to a blissful feeling of "I can't believe I'm finally playing this gaaaaame!"
To date it's the only Zelda to truly feel this way for me other than OoT, which only felt that way because I got an N64 long after everyone else, and always dreamed of the day I'd get to finally play it.And it's a feeling that Versus XIII has been building up to as well.Favorite Helper(The ones that pester you)
I don't hate Navi like most people do, but Midna is my fave.
For... Multiple reasons... One of which I won'ttalkaboutbutnowit'sobviousanyways.Favorite Link
Young Link from the N64 games. (I guess LttP Link kinda counts too, even though he's not the same Link.)
I love Toon Link, but he felt a bit too dopey, whereas Young Link has serious cojones for a kid his age, Triforce of Courage or not. Especially in Majora's Mask. As a nerd and 90's guy, the ideal adventure hero for me has always been a courageous youth. Young Link was the very essence of such a hero.
After that it's Toon Link for sure.Favorite Girl(Like the one you are gonna save.)
A tie between Zelda and Cremia. (That's right, Cremia. Not Malon. You know why.
Favorites aside, I ship Link x Everyone, and disregarding canon; Young Link x Everyone. (But I totes ship Toon Link and Tetra.)Favorite Boss
ARGH SO HARD TO DECIDE.
I can't pick just one, but several of mine would be Volvagia, Agahnim, Ganondorf and
Ganon from OoT, Ganondorf from WW, and Onox in his Dark Dragon form;
THAT fight blew me away more than anything else in the portable Zelda games.Favorite game exclusive item(Lens of truth, Pegasus boots, gale boomerang)
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- Another hard one to decide. I really love the items that let you alter your play style and/or the game itself and do odd things that equipment just doesn't do, like the Masks in Majora's Mask, and the Magic Rings in Oracle of Seasons. Playing as a Subrosian was so fun.
Other than that I really loved Din's Fire, the Spinner from TP, oh! And the decorations in WW! Being able to put trippy plants and flags and sculptures all over some of the islands was a pleasant surprise for me.
