Personal affinity mostly informed by how often I played them in the past and have been compelled to replay them again over the years, there's nothing particularly objective or technical about it. This definitely favors the older games as I was there when Zelda I & II were the biggest thing in the world and so I played those games a LOT and still do!Can I ask why Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask are below Zelda 1 and 2?
I actually recently replayed Wind Waker and I appreciate it a lot more. I'm still not totally sold on the dungeon design, but I finally understood how vital the Great Sea is not just for atmosphere, which I'd always appreciated it for, but for gameplay and story. Though it is still kind of in what I consider to be unnecessary and excessive downtime, I think I'm gonna bump the game up to around TP in my ranking. It's still not as good as PH lmao but I don't consider it Skyward Sword tier anymore.when the newbie has botw as their favorite but ww is their second favorite (and interchangeable)
