Link's Awakening got the recognition it deserves

What a terrible list from Kotaku. Link's Awakening second, Oracle games third?

what an ugly list!

Yeah, there's not much worth defending there.

I do appreciate A Link Between Worlds being in the top 6, although I'd probably go even higher. Maybe fourth place.

3) Oracle of Ages/Seasons
2) Link’s Awakening

Yeah, I saw this list when they posted it.  Ugh.  Lots to disagree with.

I have never played the multiplayer Zeldas, or the DS games, so nothing to say there.  I do agree that the NES games have aged poorly.  It does feel bad to put the original that low, but what are you going to do?

I do have trouble comparing the 2D games to the 3D games.  But within the same style is easy enough.  For the 3D games, Wind Waker is way too high.  Skyward Sword is way too low.  Just flip those two and it would be a much better list.  For the 2D games, I guess I can't really argue with LttP>LA>OoA/OoS.  But all those 3 at the very top?  Meh.

Shooting stars and meteors will randomly land in Hyrule giving rare materials.

Looks like you can pre-order the special edition of Breath of the Wild at Dell!
