The Uncanny Valley and Wii

Glorious is the day when player and character become one, using the same mind, shedding the same tears, fighting for the same cause.

Have you ever heard someone say, "Humans are rational animals"? While it's true people use logic and higher brain functions to accomplish amazing feats, the wide range of emotions we possess are also uniquely human. Solving a difficult puzzle in a Zelda game using all of your mind's wits can be very satisfying, but so can watching your in-game character's best friend sacrifice him/herself in vain before your eyes, and then witnessing the desire for vengeance erupt in sorrowful scream.

Zelda Replay: Majora's Mask

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Is Ocarina of Time as legendary as I remembered it? For the most part, yes. In spite of a handful of missteps — a few obtuse puzzles, some tedious backtracking, and a clunky stealth sequence — I don't believe the last 23 years have been unkind to it. Ocarina remains a brilliant example of the medium, a landmark game that shaped the future of its own franchise and 3D gaming in general. After more than two decades it retains its inventive dungeon design, challenging puzzles, dynamic combat, wistful storyline, unforgettable music, and empowering open-air freedom. I feel confident calling it one of the greatest games of the fifth generation, even if I'm no longer prepared to list it among the five best games ever made."

Back when video rental was a thing, I rented out Majoria's Mask, I never finished it though. I did buy the 3DS version before the eshop shutdown, so maybe one day I'll finally play through the whole thing, it's amazing how well these games hold up though. I briefly played Ocarina of Time for a while and it was really fun.
