Game Informer and their fountain of knowledge delivers yet again and this time they found out which three Zelda games Eiji Aonuma likes the most. He gave them his top three and also mentioned which one out of the lot he thought was the most underrated. Check out the list below:

3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

“Twilight Princess, because I wanted to create something better than Ocarina.”

2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

“Ocarina of Time is a game that gave me the opportunity to create a 3D world.”

1. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

“This is something my wife also likes, Phantom Hourglass. That’s number one. I was developing Twilight Princess, and the goal for that was to make something better than Ocarina. But then that game was something I proposed as a new style of gameplay, and I was a producer on that game for the first time, so I have a lot of sentiment for it.”

The most underrated Zelda?

“The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. I wanted the users to play a little bit more of that game and have that experience. I love that game.”

    • Hey Now! I lost many hours building good memories of bad times getting lost in that game!
      Rambo for the NES was the same deal. Battling screen after screen of 2D combat pergatory.

      Some of us are just gluttons for punishment. xD

  1. I guess phantom hourglass is up there for me, just I wouldn’t have expected anyone to have it as #1 compared to most other Zelda games.
    I just will forever be salty about that bit where you had to close your DS to print the map. It took me so many weeks before I figured that out because I was under the assumption that games weren’t able to register things in sleep mode. I wasted so much time trying to complete that temple. <_<

    • Reading about the game before and after launchmakes it pretty clear that most people just never gave the game a chance. Even many Zelda fans didn’t.

      And that is a shame, since that game is really good.

  2. Almost finished 100%ing phantom hourglass and it’s worse than Zelda II. Sorry, having the stylus control everything is anything but fun. And twilight is not better than ocarina so he failed on that. It’s far easier, and far more forgettable, and far less magical.

    • The game was good, but some people had the misfortune of the motion controls not working properly. I was one such soul. My system, no matter how many times I calibrated it, would not register the correct motions. It was even worse when I did it again on hero mode. Ghiraheim (spelt wrong I know) on hero mode was a nightmare because of the controls. Story was great though.

        • Yep. Even just basic movements. I would slash left, both fast and slow, to keep trying. Instead he would go right. Like I legit wanted to destroy my Wilmore. Getting my assignment kicked because the controller won’t register properly is not exactly a fun time.


  3. I’m way too indecisive and non-committal to be able to pick favorites and rank them. OoT, LttP, SS, WW, TP, 1, and 2 are all super duper important to me, and I guess collectively would be my favorites. I got about halfway through MM, and really liked it, but ended up stalling out. Same with L’sA. Hopefully someday I’ll be able to get back into these and finish them off…..and I’m really looking forward to Breath of the Wild!

    …..p.s…… am I the only one here who thinks Zelda II is awesome? It’s my pick for most underrated Zelda game, and personally, I would’ve LOVED to see at least one “proper sequel” to it. I think that’s why I like the CDi Zelda games even though their garbage. They’re like the illegitimate bastard children of Zelda II. :-)

    • Zelda 2 is hard but it’s really fun. Also the entire world and creatures introduced in it are fantastic (namely the Zora). Plus the music is some of the best of the series, AND it’s one of the only loz games where Link/Zelda is canon/romantically involved. ;)

  4. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4! Hopefully it will also await us at Nintendo Switch if Nintendo doesn't FUCK things up again!}

    My #1 favorite is Wind Waker with Skyward Sword being my pick as the most underrated game in the franchise.
