For me, it was the original on my old NES (which is a different design than the normal one that I see in images) (I still have it). Didn't get into it because I was really young, then, shortly after getting my N64 (on my oldest brother's birthday, no less), I got Ocarina of Time, and I was hooked. A couple years later, my grandmother gave me three N64 games for my birthday (Paper Mario, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and Majora's Mask), and with the two Zelda games, I kept picturing myself in either Hyrule or Termina with everything safe. Odd side note with Majora's Mask: when I first saw the TV trailer for it, I thought the game was about getting a mask that belonged to someone named Majora and returning it to him/her. Just remembered that now. Right now, I can play seven out of eight Zelda games that I can play on the Wii, with the first game I've ever had pre-ordered: Skyward Sword (didn't get to play it for another month afterward, but it was worth the wait, despite beating it in around a month). Those seven games are, in reverse order of original release, the aforementioned Skyward Sword (my new second-favorite Zelda game, bumping off Majora's Mask), Twilight Princess, Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past (heading to the second Dark World dungeon), Zelda II (I'm currently putting it down as worst canon Zelda game to date, ignoring the ones I've never played to keep completely objective), and the original (thanks to ZD's walkthrough, I'm on Level 8, but the last time I played, Level 8 called me a jabroni (that's a Rock reference for those of you keeping track).
