1Link’s most unforgettable journeys

Breath of the Wild

Lots of games are good. Some are even great. A few you may even be able to call classics. But to our mind, there’s only one series of games that goes down in legend: The Legend of Zelda franchise. 

Starting in 1986, Link, the little forest boy clad in green, led the way to the greatest adventure ever told in gaming. 30-odd years later we’re still experiencing epic journeys through Hyrule; ones that take us from homely villages to dark and mysterious dungeons. 

Whether fighting Ganon’s minions, or simply talking to the vast array of awesome characters, The Legend of Zelda’s world has become home for many fans. Whether you prefer the classic charm of Link’s Awakening or the sprawling modern freedom that Breath of the Wild gives us, we all have our favourite Zelda games. But which ones are the best? Let us go on a journey.

It’s a celebration of what makes Zelda brilliant – the type of celebration that can only be matched in a Korok Ceremony. These are the 10 greatest games in the Legend of Zelda series.
