Nintendo Minute Shares Favorite Zelda Games, Gives Shoutout to Midna

This past weekend, Nintendo Minute hosts Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang celebrated Zelda’s 30th anniversary with a rundown of their top three favorite entries in the series. Although there is some overlap — Skyward Sword is on both lists — this video highlights how the franchise as a whole has managed to attract people with radically different tastes.

Yang praises Twilight Princess as her No. 1 pick, and attributes much of the game’s brilliance to everyone’s favorite mischievous imp. Indeed, the air of mystery that surrounds Midna throughout most of the adventure was one of the driving factors of my first play-through.

Check out the video itself after the jump, and be sure to share your top three favorite Zelda games in the comments below!
