The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is the weirdest game in the Zelda series. It's also the best, even better than its obvious inspiration, Ocarina of Time.
Nope. Can't agree. It's got some good concepts and ideas - but for me, it's the one Zelda game I have never been able to finish and don't really like.
To each their own. I have always considered Majora's Mask to be the superior game given it's incredibly unique concept, art, and story. Skull kid is also the most sad and relatable Zelda villain hands down.
Yeah, to each their own. No doubt at some point in the future I'll have yet another attempt at the game to try and prove myself wrong about it! :)
Majora's Mask side quests were a lot better than OoT or any other game. But the main quest was too short. Overall I always considered it as an expansion to OoT.
@Jdoki I feel the same way about Majora's Mask. Meh...
Majora's Mask has always been the best Zelda in my book. As mentioned by a couple others above it is a little shorter than others in the series (such as Ocarina of Time); however, the atmosphere and the characters more than make up for that shortfall. I adore it for having the courage to depart from standard formula a bit and implement the controversial but brilliant time mechanic. My appreciation of this games partly stems from how fleshed out they made the game with each mask. Some of those stories were rather powerful. Alas, I just missed out on the Collector's Edition at Frys...
Nice click bait title.
It's a totally subjective opinion here, they're both fantastic games. I personally like Ocarina of Time better.. but I also happen to like Wind Waker better than both.
Windwaker HD might be my favorite. Loved the original but the changes to HD remake made it such a great game. Not to mention touch screen inventory is amazing. I really look forward to play MM again and determine if I like it more then OoT.
Ocarina of Time 3D I liked even more than the original, I'm picking up Majora's Mask today leaving my opinion entirely open. I could end up liking it more as well. I haven't been able to try Wind Waker HD yet unfortunately.
I look forward to playing MM after the great remakes for OoT and WW I have high hopes. Again touch screen inventory is just helps these games so much.
No click from the title alone.
Ocarina of Time is way better than Majora's Mask. Still, Majora's Mask is superb.
Nope not at all.
Nope, I have to disagree here. The time limit holds Majoras Mask back. Both are timless classics though
The time limit only holds Majora's Mask back if you don't know how to use it properly. It really isn't a problem once you learn the time-altering songs.
I would argue that the time limit lifts Majora's Mask past Ocarina of Time.
I like peanut butter...
I agree completely. Actually I have been replaying Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask recently and I still stay with the same opinion that Marjoas Mask is a lot better than ocarina. Don't get me wrong ocarina of time was an AMAZING intro to 3D zelda, but when compared to majora's mask it doesn't even hold a candle to it. I can list reasons and explain in great detail why majoras mask is better but since this is an age old argument I am not gonna even waste my breathe.
Of course it is, It is more mysterious, dark and attractive than OOT. And the OST is better too.
Link to the past takes that crown but both Ocarina and MM are very good. Out of the 3d Zeldas, Ocarina takes it in terms of more epic perhaps but MM is spectacular in ways no other Zelda manages
