I don't know how I managed to go 26 years without playing a Zelda game, but I did. I already heard that both games are great. I'm just wondering which one is better for a newbie to the series.

hmm I want to recommend minish cap. I think that's the easiest Zelda ever

I want to recommend the original legend of Zelda which was the first one I played and beated at the age of 6.

I think you should do like all us old-school fans. 2D Zelda first, then 3D Zelda. Both A Link Between Worlds and Ocarina 3D are perfect picks to start with either gameplay style, so go for the latter after playing the former.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Can't go wrong with either of the two, though I'd personally recommend OoT first.

Either is fine. Maybe flip a coin or something, but OoT was my introduction to the series and I have loved it ever since. Or I agree, you could go for the 2D to 3D perspective and see some of the series progression that way. They're both great games.

The original Legend of Zelda on NES? It should be there on VC.

Don't forget that Link's Awakening, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons are all on the E-Shop. All three are very good.

OoT, it's relatively easy and a good intro to 3D Zeldas.

All the others are great, too, even the two DS installments.
