OKAY TAKE TWO *sighs*
Keep in mind that I am listing games I have either played or seen a large majority of people say are good starters.

A lot of people will say Ocarina of Time or A Link to the Past. These contain the "classic Zelda formula". All other games after these have drawn on these two games the most. Heck, Ocarina drew a lot on A Link to the Past, but since it is the first 3D Zelda and introduced a ton of people into the series because of how it changed the gaming world, it is regarded as the end all of all Zeldas, or something. OoT is on the N64 and 3DS, but is also on the virtual console. I don't recommend playing it on the Wii VC though...that's how I tried playing it and it was horrid. ALttP is on the SNES, I think? Also can be found on the Virtual Console. I've never played it, but I want to.

Skyward Sword, on the other hand, was kind of created to draw in new people. It feels pretty easy to someone like me who knows how Zelda feels, but it can be a fun new experience for those who dont. I have seen it work very well in drawing in new people. A family my family is friends with all started with Skyward Sword and have loved Zelda since. One of my sisters who doesn't play games as often as me or Valk actually beat Skyward Sword before I did. It is immersive and is good for and beginner. Keep in mind, however, that a lot of people have complained about the Motion Controls. I never had an big issue with them, maybe because we have and use the Wii Remote Plus attachment, but it is something to consider. SS is on the Wii.

I will always recommend Twilight Princess. It is how I started, and I feel it does a great job of introducing someone to the "Zelda feel" so often talked about.  Now, the Zelda fan base (or maybe I should say the Ocarina fan boys) really seems to hate Twilight Princess, calling it a copy of Ocarina and blah blah blah. I don't really see their issue, as it is different enough from Ocarina in my opinion to easily consider it a different game, but whatever. I will admit that there are faults with TP, but my main problem with the game is the rather barren Overworld. It doesn't have as many towns/fun secrets to explore as Ocarina or Wind Waker would. TP is on the GameCube, Wii, and Wii U.

Speaking of Wind Waker, I think that would also be a good starter. It's fun, has enjoyable mechanics, and is pretty. It just isn't as memorable to me probably because I haven't finished it yet, and it is more quietly revered than Ocarina, which I also haven't finished. WW is on the GameCube and Wii U.

Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks were both great games that are never given enough credit. They are direct sequels to Wind Waker, but they can still stand alone. They are on the DS, though, so have a very different feel than the rest of the Zelda games I'd say. They're controlled with the stylus, rather than D-pad. I'm just throwing them out there. Not really great intros into Zelda, but fun nonetheless.

Wind Waker was where I started so that's where I'm biased, I don't really want to recommend LttP because I prefer 3D Zelda games to 2D, and I found the final boss a bit rough.

if you plan to play OOT or MM do NOT get it on virtual console. The controls handle horribly and it won't be a good experience. N64, GameCube or 3DS is the way to go (and just for anyone wondering, yes they are on Game Cube OOT through the Master Quest edition with comes with both regular and master quest and on the Zelda collectors edition which has OOT, MM, The Legend of Zelda, and Zelda II)

(Keeps forgetting about that despite playing Majora's Mask on it) If I hadn't procrastinated so bad on that I totally would have played OoT on it. OTL

I beat Breath of the Wild today.  

I wasn't sure about it going in--it looked fucking awesome, but at the same time, Zelda games never really appealed to me.  

While it started off slow for me--I spent most of Switch launch day playing Shovel Knight 'cause the beginning was boring--it quickly became crazy addictive and I just.  Couldn't.  Put.  It.  Down.  Easily one of the best games I've ever played.  

And now I have a massive crush on Prince Sidon.

Okay, either I'm dumb and never saw it, or there was no Sheikah Stone in Kokiri Forest in the original OoT to help people like me who had no clue where to find a sword. After trying this game at least a half a dozen times on emulation and failing to find a sword every time, I almost immediately found the sword in the 3D version just now. Facepalm

The Sheikah Stone is 100% new to OoT3D, made to help people with no idea what to do have an idea on what to do.

There are smaller ones that were in the original, which you had to use a certain mask to talk to, but they were...decidedly less useful.
