The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Best Zelda game. Best Adventure game. Best GAME. This game may have used the same gameplay mechanic and graphics as Ocarina of Time, but it took it to a whole mother level. Ocarina of time was amazing, but this game is an absolute masterpiece of work. Also, this game had the best story of any Zelda game. If you've never played this game, then go play it NOW! If you've played it but don't enjoy it, well then that just sucks for you. Rating: 10/10
When it came to anything I experienced in video games or even movies, I was more into more light-hearted, uplifting, and comedic stories because I didn't really know how dark, depressing, and emotional stories could be really amazing. Everything changed when I picked up this game. I never thought a dark story would be so engaging to the point where I start think differently. This is an amazing game. I've grown to love dark and emotional stories in video games and movies. This is top ten material right here.
The vibe of this game is incredible. There are moments in the game that are fun and childish, and then there are moments that make you want to cry. I bought this game when it first came out and I was 9. I didn't find all of the masks until I was 20. I refused to use online help or manuals and it was the most satisfying win in a game ever. And the time concept of the game is incredible. To beat this game you will need to know what time different characters will be in what places on the map. The depth of Majora's Mask is incredible.
Such a philosophical game. It makes you think about everything differently. Here are some thought provoking quotes from Majora's Mask.
Your friends... What kind of... people are they? I wonder... Do these people... think of you... as a friend?
What makes you happy? I wonder... what makes you happy... does it make... others happy, too?
The right thing... what is it? I wonder... if you do the right thing... does it really make... everybody... happy?
Your true face... What kind of... face is it? I wonder... The face under the mask... Is that... your true face?
I love this game. Best story of all time. The entire Zelda series is flawless. Such a great game this is!
This game has almost everything that was amazing about Ocarina of Time and adds even more amazing elements to it. The dark story, the deep characters, the mask collecting, the intense three-day time system! Need I go on? The world is fun to explore and sure there's only 4 dungeons but they are all great (yes, I even like the Great Bay Temple okay). Such a fantastic game, it's not only my favorite Zelda but probably my favorite game ever! - DrewtheGamer98
Best game ever? No. In fact, it's my 13th personal favorite game. However, it gets my vote because it is in my opinion the best story of any game and is also extremely thought provoking. Plus, who doesn't love that creepy moon and all the symbolism that it entails?
When we come together to decide on the best video games of all time, do people even consider brilliant exploration mechanics and original atmosphere? Majora's Mask is a complete dream, its both childlike magical world to explore and deep psychological themes reach people of all ages.
Emotional, scary, interesting, fun. Those are just some of the words I could use to describe this game. One of the first games I finished and I can confidently say that it is my favorite game of all time. The only reason that it isn't number one is the retardation of the masses.
One of a kind. How creepy yet captivating the game Is makes it stand out. And this is coming from someone who played it when I was 4 in 2002 and 17 in 2015. It used to scare me when I wasn't younger. But now I love it, and it's a game I can never forget.
Majora's Mask does everything right in my eyes. It's a perfect Zelda adventure with very fun dungeons, cool masks and mask transformations and some pretty deep characters. May I go on? - DrewtheGamer98
Only 21? This should at least be in the top five. It had the best story I've ever seen in a game, awesome weapons, and addictive gameplay. Best Zelda ever and one of the best games ever!
One of the Greatest games of all time. It took what was great about Ocarina of Time and improved upon it. The story is dark and amazing and the three day time limit system works very well!
After I've played a game, I would always say "That is my new favorite game! " but non of them compare to this one. I got the 3D version for my birthday in 2015, and I thought it was great. Soon after I played it, I got really frustrated with the 3 days and actually thought to stop playing it. Luckily, I finished and the ending was amazing for me. - Dawscr
This is not only the greatest Zelda game of all Time, but also the greatest game ever, because of the great Atmosphere, Soundtrack and Story. Not to mention the Characters...
The greatest use of time in any game ever. A living, breathing world. Loveable characters with darker tones. A masterpiece for the ages.
Excellent sequel to OOT and the hidden puzzles that are crucial to the story (song of time backwards) make it so captivating.
Am I the only person on here that prefers this over Ocarina of time? - PugLlama
It has the Zelda formula that makes it a masterpiece but adds something special that makes it the best of all time
Nothing left to say... Nothing... It's just the best game you will ever play in your life! Trust me!
Great addition to the Zelda franchise, again a dark theme is apparent. Very good game
I'm glad this is even on this list, I love it, but most people don't. It's probably because it runs on the same engine OOT did, it only took the developers 8 months to make it, so, I can understand, and I'm fine with that.
One of my favorite games of all time. The only game I like more is Ocarina of Time
It's up there with Oot, one of the darkest stories ever. - htoutlaws2012
This is one of the few that deserves to be called art. - SkyWolf
This game is just slightly better than Ocarina of time, but I don't know why. - Toot
