I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for forever—well, sort of. I got stuck and put the game down for a while, maybe a couple of months. But when I picked Phantom Hourglass back up again, I couldn't get unstuck. And I didn't even know why I was stuck in the first place.

Even before a new installment in Nintendo's fabled The Legend of Zelda series hits shelves, it has the uncanny ability to ignite heated, passionate discussion on its untested merits. At the same time, it often summons cool, breezy reflections on the overall series and its special qualities. And what happens afterward? More of the same thing really. But there was one significant outcome after the release GameCube's Wind Waker and the Nintendo 64's Majora's MaskTwilight Princess.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Game Description: The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess brings you back to the land of Hyrule, as you uncover the mystery behind its plunge into darkness. Link, a young man raised as a wrangler in a rural village, is ordered by the mayor to attend the Hyrule Summit. He sets off, oblivious to the dark fate that has descended upon the kingdom. When he enters the Twilight Realm that has covered Hyrule, he transforms into a wolf and is captured. A mysterious figure helps him break free, and with the aid of her magic, they set off to free the land from the shadows. Link must explore the vast land of Hyrule and As he does, he'll have to enlist the aid of friendly folk, solve puzzles and battle his way through dangerous dungeons. In the Twilight Realm, he'll have to use his wolf abilities and Midna's magic to bring light to the land. Revisit classic and new characters—Link, Zelda, Midna and many others.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Game Description: The Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap takes young Link into an all-new adventure where he'll explore Hyrule and battle evil on the microscopic level. An ancient magical sword releases the evil mage Vaati and he causes trouble all over Hyrule. Link has been sent to restore the sword and seal Vaati inside it—but it can only be done by visiting the Minish people and getting their help. Link will have to shrink to do that—and the strange Minish Cap will be his guide in this new mirco-world.
