There were several Zelda titles available for the Wii: the Wind Waker and the Twilight Princess full Zelda titles, the Four Swords Adventures was a full game + a tie-in with the GBA, and two discs were released to port older titles over: Ocarina of Time: Master Quest and the Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition.

Yeah, even if you change the wording to "exclusively released for the GameCube" (no space between Game and Cube), it would omit Four Swords Adventures, which is considered the 11th Zelda game (after Wind Waker).

Changed the question slightly. I don't know why @ElCanuck mentioned the Wii because the question was about the GameCube.

I think the musical instrument question should be changed. There's a wiki page dedicated to all of the different instruments the hero uses in all of the games. Including flutes and harps in several titles.

I think the key word is often. I'm not sure if there's another instrument that he 'often' uses. Plus let me ask you this - did any other instrument come to mind BEFORE ocarina? I mean, the question's intent is obvious to a person even cursorily familiar with the series.

Harp came to me first.

Yes. I first thought of 'recorder' which was present in the very first game. However the use of the word "often" does point the answer closer to OoT, as it is a heavily used item. That being said the baton from Wind Waker is also a musical instrument, that is used often.

An ocarina is used in Link to the past, Ocarina of time, minish cap, majoras mask, and probably another zelda game I'm not thinking of right now. Other than that, Link has used a harp (Skyward Sword), a recorder (Zelda 1), a guitar, bongos, and trumpet-thing (majoras mask), a grass flute (twilight princess, although I haven't played further than the beginning, so I'm assuming something else), and everything in Link's Awakening.

Great quiz! I got all of them right the first time I took the quiz. I literally guessed It's Dangerous To Go Alone and almost forgot Impa. Anyways, great job!

You should probably change the wording for "Who is the villain?" There are multiple games where Ganon doesn't even make an appearance (Minish Cap and Spirit Tracks, to name two).

Damn it, I had successfully managed to block Wind Waker from my mind. I really wish they would stop using that awful art style and just stick to the normal one from the other games.

Of course it is, the series is called The Legend of ZELDA, not The Legend of Link (whoever that is)

Christmas morning 1986, my parents got me both the year old Nintendo Entertainment System and the newer Atari 7800. They said I had to pick one and return the other. Before making a decision we went up to Ohio to visit my dad's family. My cousin Brett had the NES. I was blown away by Super Mario Bros.; but The Legend of Zelda was what really captivated me. Nothing on the Atari compared. After that it was an easy decision to make. The 7800 went back to Sears.

Atari really screwed themselves on the 7800. It was supposed to debut in 1984. By 1986 it was too late to compete with the NES, which had third party games, and had restrictions on software producers so they couldn't make games for other consoles. The NES was just so much better, Zelda was the game that did it for me, with SMB a close second.

My favorite games on the 2600 were Solaris, Kung Fu, Combat, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pitfall... but Zelda and Mario were light years beyond those. And the 7800 was just not that much better. At least the games weren't. The hardware was not too far behind the NES.

Because of BOTW, I think of Impa as a 100-year old lady.
