Today IGN’s “Greatest Zelda Tournament” moved on to Round 2, which means about half of the Zelda series has already been eliminated from the contest. Of course, the competition’s just getting started. With about half of the Zelda series still in the running (it’s debatable whether the CDi games, which somehow made it into this contest, even count in the first place), it’s sure to be an interesting ride!
- Ocarina of Time vs.
- Phantom Hourglass vs.
- Oracle of Seasons vs.
Oracle of Ages The Legend of Zeldavs. The Wind Waker
- A Link to the Past vs.
Wand of Gamelon
- Majora’s Mask vs.
Four Swords Adventures
- Link’s Awakening vs.
The Minish Cap
- Twilight Princess vs.
The Adventure of Link
(I get the feeling that IGN had a pretty good idea of who would succeed in the first round – do you?)
The elimination of the Phillips games is no surprise, but I’m a bit intrigued by Seasons beating out Ages (especially when Ages actually has a slightly bigger audience!) as well as Phantom Hourglass trouncing Spirit Tracks. Well, okay, the stigma against the Spirit Train is kind of working against it (along with significantly lower sales)…
- Ocarina of Time vs. Phantom Hourglass
- Oracle of Seasons vs. The Wind Waker
- A Link to the Past vs. Majora’s Mask
- Link’s Awakening vs. Twilight Princess
I’d tell you where I’m putting my money (both in terms of what I voted for and what I think will actually win), but that’d take some of the fun out of it. Head over to the contest site and cast your votes!
