Oracle of Ages

Zelda is a great series, and has had some fantastic handheld installments. It’s no wonder then, that quite a few of them make Modojo’s top five lists – one list for every portable gaming console. From Android, to cell phones (remember them) to the 3DS there is a top five list for every handheld gaming device. Of course, no Zeldas make the top list for the 3DS, however, surprisingly, Phantom Hourglass came 5th on the Nintendo DS list. Frankly, I am shocked that it beat Spirit Tracks both in this and IGN’s Greatest Zelda tournament. Spirit Tracks is superior in my opinion, but perhaps people are thinking Spirit Tracks is just a refining of Phantom Hourglass – the same reason some say Majora’s Mask is better, but most still go with Ocarina of Time.

The Minish Cap placed in second on the Game Boy Advance list, which is a tad higher than I would have thought, but no complaints. If they were including remakes, then I believe A Link to the Past should have been first there. On the Game Boy Color, Oracle of Ages and Seasons came in fourth, and Link’s Awakening took the flag on the Game Boy, which is no surprise. The full Nintendo console lists are below.
