    Too bad they didn't show Link being trapped in a bottle in Hyrule Warriors when using the Great Fairy as Link's weapon.

    So I hate admitting this, but I've never played a Zelda game before Breath of the Wild. Obviously I'm hooked now and I need more! 

    So which Zelda games are there that I need to play? I would love to know which ones the community loves the most.

      Hoo boy, this is a big question. Let me preface this by saying that I don't think I've ever played a Zelda game that wasn't good, and I've played all but the first two games for the NES and the Phillips CDI games.

      That said though, my personal favorites are Link to the Past, and Twilight Princess. Link to the past was easily the best example of an open world Zelda game before Breath of The Wild came out, and established many of the staple ideas that have remained in the series ever since then. If you have a Wii or WiiU you can find it pretty easily on the Eshop. Twilight Princess on the other hand has imo the best storytelling in the series, with tons of memorable characters and some of the most thrilling moments Zelda has to offer. That one just got an HD remake for the WiiU, and it looks absolutely gorgeous.
      Some other ones to consider:

      Ocarina of Time and Majora's mask are both somewhat dated since they made their debut on the Nintendo 64, but they are classics for a reason, and both have had remakes with major graphical upgrades for the 3DS, you really can't go wrong with either of them.
      Wind Waker has a huge overworld with a really fun art style, and while it feels a bit empty at times it's still great for the feeling of adventure it provides. This one also has an HD version for the WiiU. 


      Hope this helps!

      I agree with Howlingarmadillo, those are some pretty top games. Ocarina of Time is a classic worth playing, Wind Waker has the most memorable soundtrack I've heard in a Zelda game, and Skyward Sword is a pretty interesting one.


      For handhelds, I definitely recommend Minish Cap, as your adventuring partner is a hilarious talking hat. That one should be available on the Nintendo Store. Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, both DS games that take place after Wind Waker, are a little different, but kinda underrated IMO.


      You might be interested to hear that Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Ocarina of Time are all referenced in Breath of the Wild. So maybe start with those.

      I second Twilight Princess. Amazing storytelling, and solid swordplay.
