Just over a year ago Paste ranked every game in the Legend of Zelda series. It was a fine piece—smart, thorough and fair—but, in time, it has become somewhat obsolete, as these pieces tend to do. Something pretty significant happened in the last month to completely change the entire foundation of that older piece, and so we’ve felt the need to update it. And that’s what this is: the update, of that previous ranking, from just over a year ago, deep in the midst of the pre-Breath of the Wild era. These thoughts are as crucial as the arguments they’ll probably incite (and if you want to argue ‘em, go leave comments at our Facebook page or the larger, all-encompassing Paste Facebook page). So join us on an epic adventure through 31 years of Legend of Zelda and Legend of Zelda opinions, as we plunge ever deeper into danger towards an inevitable (and perhaps too-obvious) end.
