The recently released Link's Awakening for Switch, a 3D console remake of a 2D Game Boy title, well and truly brought the all-time classic into a modern age.
Finally, a new generation will be able to experience some of the diddy adventure's most memorable moments, from Link finding his sword on the beach to Marin's tear-jerking Ballad of the Wind Fish.
The Game Boy title presaged Zelda's transition to 3D over twenty years ago, and since then we've seen the series continue to produce some of the most impactful moments in gaming history.
With this in mind, let us reflect on some of the best the long-running series has given us to date. These are the moments which left us crying tears of joy, sadness, or maybe even fear. As long as they could stun one into silence, it qualifies for this list.
Bear in mind of course, this list is a combination of fan consensus, as well as personal preference. If you don't see something you think should be on the list, feel free to leave a comment below, and it might appear in a future list!
