Haha I'm so glad I don't see anyone having clicked the New Four Swords Anniversary as their first game! Haha I was gonna vote that just to be a troll but decided against it. But yeah, if thats your first game and you're playing it on your own, HOW THE HELL did you make it here haha
While I had technically tried a few minutes of Zelda 2 and ALttP, it was only for the sake of who I was visiting with at the time. The first game that got me into the series, and the first one I owned, was Link's Awakening DX. Foooooooooond memories.
Well its a long story. Me and my dad got smash bros on the N64, and my dad was like: "Link looks pretty cool!" So he got OoT and MM, and he got me LA: DX. So technically LA is my first game, but my Dad and I beat the others.
The first Zelda game I ever touched was The Legend of Zelda. I was probably about 3 when I played it, and had no clue what on Earth I was doing, lol. It was my cousin's game, lol. The second game I ever played was either Ocarina of Time, or Link's Awakening. I got them both around the same time, so... I have a hard time remembering which one I played next.

NES Legend of Zelda and Adventure of Link at about the same time. I was way too young when I played them though (too young for video games right?) so the earliest memory of playing Zelda would be Ocarina of Time.
The first The Legend of Zelda game I played was The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I remember I was always stuck before getting to Dodongo's Cavern because I didn't know I had to get a song to play for Darunia (Saria's). I also remember lending it to my dad's friend so that he could help me (and I also remember him calling Ganondorf "El payaso con capucha", which is Spanish for "The clown with a cape" or "The caped clown"). xP
Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening, was the first video game to capture my emotions and didn't feel just like a fancy high-tech toy. Then I got Majora's Mask which was my first console Zelda game, and I was hooked forever.

My first Legend of Zelda game was ALttP, I still remember how amazed I was when I was 3 or 4 years old.
My first reaction was that it was colorful, bright, and that I wanted to play with it, then about 3 or 4 years later I was able to play with the snes since my uncle let me played with it for the first time.
I remember getting Wind Waker for Christmas one year. I put it into our trusty purple Gamecube and loaded it up. I was filled with amazement at the games color and music. That is, until Aryll was kidnapped by Kind Helmaroc and I put the game away for years out of utter fear

"Nah... I mean, I'm already pregnant, so what other kind of shenanigans could I get into?"
I'm 95% sure Ocarina of Time was my first Zelda game. I feel like it might've been Link's Awakening though, but the more I think about it, I remember not having a clue what Zelda was when my mom got us OoT. We must've gotten LA very shortly after.
