For years, I have prosthelytized the greatness of Majora's Mask. For a fairly significant time, I was actually in the minority about this opinion. Not that it wasn't a great game, but I was hard-pressed to find someone who agreed with me that it was the best Zelda game out of them all. With the echo-chamber that is the internet, this is now much less the case. This article is from ancient times, 2009, when I was fighting the good fight and I really just needed to put my thoughts into bullet points. I'm putting it up once again, because I still want to bring people over to the dark side, also because I just recently played Majora's Mask 3DS for the third time, and because I am, honestly, quite proud of this editorial. So, without further ado, here she is:
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is a great game. As with all pieces of art, there are going to be people who think otherwise. Majora's Mask has the great distinction, or unfortunate fate, of being a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time which many consider the greatest Zelda game of all time. While I won't argue Ocarina of Time's significance, I do wish to argue why Majora's Mask is better. Or, more specificity, why Majora's Mask is the greatest Zelda game ever created. Hit the jump to see why!
