What Zelda game do you hate that everyone else likes?

As you all know, everyone has their favorite Zelda game, and some Zelda games are praised as being the "best in the series." Each game tends to form its own following, and that following sometimes effects other peoples opinions as well. For example, there's the people who fell in love with OoT, and that in return caused other people to try it out and like it as well. Then again, this isn't always the case.

So, out of all of the zelda that have huge followings, which one do you personally not like at all/hate (despite what everyone else says)? As for me, I personally hate Link to the Past. Yep, I said it lol. Now I never thought it was a bad game or anything, it has solid gameplay, its the game that really set the standards for future Zelda releases, its story isn't bad, it has challenging dungeons, and a wide verity of tools. As a game in general, I cannot deny that it isn't a good one; however I still hate it.

I've tried many times to get into the game, and its just something I can't do. I've started the game at least 10 times now, and each time I start it I've gotten a little farther and farther. Every single time I make it close to the end, go a bit farther, and then stop. That's when normally I'd somehow either lose my save file, or I'd get ANOTHER version of the game (for example the GBA version or VC version). Despite playing about 75% of the game through over and over again, I just couldn't get myself to like it. The first time I played the game it felt like a chore, and I didn't have any fun, and every playthrough after I just tried to force myself to finish it; which I could never do. While the Dark World is a really big turn off for me, I think I just found the dungeons annoying. Although since I've played them so many times I can run through them blindfolded, I just hate them... I guess LttP just isn't my type of game.

So, now, what about you guys? What Zelda game do you hate that most people seem to love?

When I was younger, I never really got into A Link To The Past.

Hate is a pretty strong word. Out of the Zelda's I've played, the ones I don't like are TP and SS.

Don't really hate any, but OOT isn't my favorite by a long shot. Still enjoyed it though.

Minish Cap.
I really didn't like Minish Cap and it gets a lot of praise. I don't know if I hated it, but I sure didn't like it.
