Hey everyone, and welcome to Zelda Informer’s Best Zelda Ever 2017 Announcement / Contest Thread. You can think of this post as a trailer for our list, which will be published in full on November 30th. Please take a minute to watch the video above to get all of the details.
Finished? Awesome. Let’s go over some logistics.
As stated in the video, you have a chance to win a pretty sweet bag embroidered with the Sheikah logo courtesy of our friends at Musterbrand. All you need to do is leave a comment in this post of what you think our list is gonna look like. So just to reiterate, not your own favorite list of Zelda games, but what you think the averaged out list of our 20 Editor’s is going to be. At the bottom of this post will be a copy and paste template that you can use to make your prediction!
The way that scoring will work is similar to how the scoring worked for making the list in the first place. A game was scored 18 points for finishing atop an Editors list, 17 for finishing second, 16 third, etc. 18 points for 18 main entry games. Scoring users lists will be similar to this.
If you correctly guess the top game, you will receive 18 points. If the game you thought was going to be number 1 actually turns up in the number 5 spot, you will be given 14 points (= points less for 4 spots off). The amount of games that you were off between your predicted spot and it’s actual spot will be what’s used to deduct points. It’s system that looks complicated, but is actually super simple and takes care of any potential ties as well.

Good luck to everyone, and I hope that you guys dig our 2017 rankings of the Best Zelda Ever. It’s a diverse cast of characters that work here at Zelda Informer, so putting together a list like this is tough, but just as fun since you get a glimpse into everyone’s experiences with the Zelda series.
Make sure to come back to Zelda Informer on the 30th to check out our list. See you all then.
