ah, we found it, we found the biased one!
Zelda 1 is...good. It's alright. It spawned something great but on its own its only okay. (I feel that way about every game on the NES except Mario bros 2 and 3 as well as the Final Fantasy/Dragon Quest games. I feel that the NES did 2D as well as the N64 did 3D: We could do it but very few games did it well and aged well.)
Zelda 2 is trash from top to bottom.
Zelda 3/Link to the Past is a masterpiece.
Zelda: Ocarina of Time is good for its time but it was just a 3D Link to the Past (which meant uglier and clunkier)
Majora's Mask is a mixed bag. It has all the problems of OOT without any of the charm or feel. It DOES have a unique gameplay loop and original plot/theme, though.
Wind Waker is a masterpiece but a LOT of people hate it (no idea why, it's my third favourite zelda and arguably the 2nd best overall zelda game)
Links Awakening is just a simpler Link to the Past. IT's good, but not great (I got the remake on Switch and..it was alright)
Oracle of Seasons/Ages were great again.
The 'Zelda formula' was perfected with Link to the Past, emulated poorly with Ocarina of Time, dismissed for Majora's Mask, twisted in a weird but in my opinion great way for Wind Waker, and perfected in Twilight Princess. I personally hated Skyward Sword almost as much as I hated FFXIII but we'll not get into that. Breath of the Wild is another masterpiece.
And no, people didn't 'ignore' the flaws in that game. you're a fool if you think that. the reason it got perfect scores across the board is becuase, while there were flaws, there was so much int he game that was outstanding that the flaws didn't matter. There were MANY flaws in Ocarina of Time, too, and those were far, FAR more annoying and obfuscating than 'weapon durability' or whatever.
I disagree with pretty much all of your opinions on the Zelda games. Does that mean you're biased?
