I did it, bros. I finally got around to playing through Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask.

I did it, bros. I finally got around to playing through Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. Every heart, every madk, every upgarde. And no game overs in OoT.

I finally have the right to give my opinion on these games. They’re pretty good.

Look, I can’t pretend it’s still 1998 and it’s the first time I’m seeing a big open field in a game or any of the other things that these games pioneered, but I can appreciate them for how revolutionary they were compared to what was out at the time.

The music is fantastic and undeniably some of the best in any game to this day. It really elevates the whole story even when it’s fairly simple. I’m starting to play some piano and I’ve been learning the various Ocarina songs on it.

Majora’s Mask has some really good side content, and I’m sure I’ll remember most of the npcs and what they do for a long time.

We never did find out what happened to Navi, and it seems like it was ends with Link setting out to a new land to look for her again. Too bad there wasn’t a third game. I can see why people were upset they got Wind Waker instead at the time.

I’m going to read the manga for these two games (which isn’t very long) and maybe check out some fan content. There’s a romhack in development called Indigo which is a fan-made sequel to MM, so I hope that comes out eventually.

What are your thoughts on these games?

    I'm more interested in your opinion, since I didn't put that much effort into either one.
    1) Was this your first time playing both games?
    2) What other Zeldas have you played?
    3) What were your biggest impressions of each game, i.e. apart from the music, did you have strong opinions about design, aesthetic, etc.?
    4) Did you like one more than the other, and/or found one to age better?
    5) How irritating was each one to 100% without deaths, and was it an enjoyable experience for you to take up that challenge?

      1) I played the 3DS versions but that was over a decade ago and I didn’t collect everything.
      2) Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, a few handheld games, BotW.
      3) OoT felt a bit basic, like the template that future Zelda games would use, but it was still enjoyable. MM fleshed out some of the side characters better than almost any from the other games. MM really nailed the somber feeling of impending doom that nobody can do anything to stop.
      4) I liked the main quest of OoT more and the side content of MM more. I didn’t enjoy how much I ended up having to look up for MM- I hate looking things up but I also want to see the full game without spending an extra 30 hours blindly rubbing up against everything. I think that MM would be fun to replay- knowing what to do but trying to get it done as efficiently as possible.
      5) Having to replay a few of the dungeons in MM was a pain but it wasn’t too bad. Also I definitely did die in MM but I didn’t care because it’s not listed on the save file.

        Thanks for answering those. What did you have to replay dungeons in MM for, to collect the fairies? I always thought having to get all of the gold skulltulas in OoT would be a pain, but I guess it wasn't so bad in practice.
        I know I got the Fierce Deity mask on my second playthrough of MM, but I probably had to look things up too, though I can't remember what exactly. Having to wait around for events to pass is kind of annoying, but I really enjoyed the novelty of the repeating 3-day cycle. I wish more games tried to do something ambitious like that, especially from a major series like that.

          I didn’t get all of the gold skulltulas. You don’t need to in order to get all of the heart pieces. Your reward for getting them all is limitless money, which is completely pointless as you can get money easily by the end of the game and you wouldn’t have much to spend it on anyway.

            I misremembered and thought the final reward was an upgrade to a 999 rupee wallet, instead of infinite money. Either way, yeah, it's worthless except for adding stuff for kids to do once they've beaten the game. It's weird how many games offer monetary incentives to players when there's virtually nothing to use the money on.

          Shade is more appropriate, as it's just the regret the Hero of Time left behind when he passed. His actual literal spirit is the current Link as he is continually reincarnated to save Hyrule. You guys should know this stuff it's literally the entire reason Wind Waker Hyrule got flooded -The Heroes soul didn't exist in that timeline anymore

      You get access to a song right away called the Inverted Song of Time which slows the passage of time enough that you don’t need to worry about running out of time before finishing a dungeon or whatever. So I’d say it’s not a problem unless you obsessively need to try to get everything done in one cycle.

      Congrats. I never did get around to getting 100% on Majora's Mask. Come to think of it, that's when I stopped bothering with 100% completion in Zelda games.
      Have you played Master Quest yet?

      >What are your thoughts on these games?
      OoT felt a bit like a retread of ALttP, although with them creating a new 3D design and all the stuff they created for it, I can give it a bit of leeway. There's a difference between saying that OoT sort of followed the same formula as ALttP, and with them repeating the same formula for the next five games.

      Majora's Mask was unique, and I liked it. I'm a fan of the time loop mechanic, in other games along with Majora's Mask, so it was fun as both that and a Zelda game. Swimming around with Zora Link was one of the few times that swimming has been fun in video games, and I'm sad to hear it got tied to a magic meter in the 3DS version.

      >Getting a game over isn't a big deal.
      Back in the original Zelda games, they included a counter which showed how many deaths you had in the run. It was a bit of a badge of honor to finish a game file with 000, which meant no deaths, and sometimes meant finishing the game in one sitting.

      Zelda II was the big exception, since you always had 001 even with no deaths. The 1 was counting the file starting, not a death ending.

      Obviously it matters a lot less in Majora's Mask, since you technically end up failing at the end of the 3rd day and it's completely impossible to clear 100% of the content before the end of the first loop. It might be possible to clear enough and beat the game on the first loop before the reset, but obviously not get 100% completion.
