IGN Greatest Zelda Tournament

After a grueling round one and round two, IGN has come down to the semifinals of its Greatest Zelda Tournament. Read on for the results so far including who lost the second round, who faces off in round three, and where I’m putting my money, figuratively of course – unless someone wants to bet against Ocarina of Time taking the crown.

Round 1

  • Ocarina of Time vs. Zelda’s Adventure
  • Phantom Hourglass vs. Spirit Tracks
  • Oracle of Seasons vs. Oracle of Ages
  • The Legend of Zelda vs. 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

Round 2

  • 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

The only thing that really surprises me from round two is that Majora’s Mask beat A Link to the Past. I mean, it should in my opinion, but I wouldn’t have thought that’s how the vote would go. I ain’t complaining, even though it deserves to be in the final four. Here’s who faces off in round three.

Round 3

  • Ocarina of Time vs. The Wind Waker
  • Majora’s Mask vs. Twilight Princess

I find it extremely interesting that the final four happen to be the four main 3D console releases in the series. For this round I am tipping that Ocarina of Time will beat The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess will beat Majora’s Mask. Given the undue hate for The Wind Waker out there, there’s no way it can top Ocarina. On the other side, Majora’s Mask could pull it off, but Twilight Princess is largely loved. It’s a bit of a case of old vs. new generation there.

No doubt Ocarina should take the title from there, which would have been expected right from the start. Only here at Zelda Informer would something other than Ocarina win (namely Majora’s Mask). Head on over to IGN to cast your vote. I have no shame saying that I voted for The Wind Waker and Majora’s Mask.
