zelda ocarina of time had to be at the top somewere, the best zelda game made had to be there somewere
zelda a link to the past also had to be there, long but brilliant game
the thing that gets me is that HOW on earth did majoras mask get all the way up there sad.gif

It looks like Japanese gamers value the older titles more than the newer ones... I don't understand how the original Legend of Zelda made it in the top ten. It was a groundbreaking game but certainty not a favorite compared to Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Skyward Sword, and Ocarina of Time in my eyes.
