          MM would be dramatically lesser if not for OoT. They complete each other. Plus, OoT had the grace to shower you with other girls, even if Zelda was the crux of the plot. So let's not be too harsh on it.

            This. Zelda being important to OoT is worlds different to the Zelda is the main motivator and only thing that matters to Link thing that SS and onward try to push so damn much.

            This.
            MM is my favourite. It's the most personal one for me.
            I always watched my older brother play OOT up until he dropped it at the water temple. I played it for myself when i was like 18 to 19 years old.
            It was really good, important and i enjoyed it. But it wasn't "my" game still.
            Then I finally played MM after 3 attempts and 100%ed it.

            Man what a ride. My experience with OOT and my brother made it feel even more like it was made for ME. Especially as i had pretty rough time with existential questions when i was very young.
            Kino.

            But the game would not hit as hard without the memories and base of OOT existing before it. And in my opinion that doesn't make it inferior or bad. It's just that it has a dependency for you to apreciate it and having that enriches the experience.
            I have trouble imagining someone who loves or likes MM but is salty about disliking OOT so much for having to play through it beforehand.

            Also, these were kino enemies.
            I loved them individually as regular enemies.
            But when regular enemies team up to suddenly show character was goated. Loved these loveable mischievous goofy bros.

            I mean visually, and in their interactions. They're just halflings or hobbits or what have you with a touch of forest spirit that really only exists in the background for flavor
            Them having fairies is purely from their connection to the deku tree

            Meanwhile gorons and zora are way better than dwarves or elves, despite that being essentially what they are
            The scrubs are visually interesting and have a strong cultural identity and homeland stemming from their physical abilities

            Hey now, the Kokiri are creative enough just because of how they fit into the setting. They're an intelligent and amicable race that's a literal death sentence to meet, that have bonded with a species others have only ever been able to catch like an insect.
            Scrubs didn't fill their role or replace them because they were uncreative, having them in Termina would just have made it feel too much like home for the game's atmosphere to land.

            I liked all of them tbh. Not every race needs to be super exotic. I also think kokiri are just not as exotic to westerners compared to japs so they might feel more safe or generic to us compared to the japanese.

              The kokiri work because they reinforce the themes of growing up and losing your innocence. There is nothing wrong with them. They are not hobbits because hobbits are not children. Frodo is 50 something years old during the war of the ring.

                Elves aren’t fish people. Kokiri are neverlanders/the lost boys, not hobbits. The only thing they have in common with hobbits is that they are short. Dwarves aren’t made of rock (unless you really want to get into the weeds but that’s another story). Making comparisons to something and saying something is similar to something else isn’t criticism anyway.

                I like the zora because they're a creative take on a fantasy trope that leans into the creative aspects specifically to lend the race a different flavor, rather than being the same old slightly modified humans
                Just like how I like that gorons are not just dudes that live in mountains and diggy diggy hole, but go the extra mile of being weird ass monkey armadillo rock creatures that roll around like sonic and only mine and "smith" because they eat the fricking rocks, and because of that have a super lighthearted and simple personality and culture

                Just because you ascribe the Zora the mantle of "essentially elves, but also unique visually" does not obligate every comparison you can draw between an OoT race and "standard fantasy" to be that same distance. The Zora are just the Zora, the similarity between them and elves is primarily a result of them playing into a basic story role and not because they are meant to be "the Zelda take on elves". The Gorons you have a stronger argument for but it's still a stretch. The things you're noticing aren't "fantasy tropes", they're just fricking tropes, if it weren't a species of graceful and weird fish people it would be a country of graceful and weird people who love water not fricking elves.

                If they were completely identical to hylians other than their choice of environment and obsession with fish, then it wouldn't be a fantasy race(which is a fantasy trope), which is the thing that I'm referring to the artistic merit of when talking about how the races are designed

                And you're equally moronic if you think just being "interesting" is the only purpose of a fantasy race. The characters have to exist for an entire story, anon, they live and die by their thematic contribution, which their appearance is a part of. To imply that literally only one race is allowed to be human-like is to demand that a bunch of more familiar/welcoming story roles be impossible to fill by any race but that one.

                No, moron, I am saying that on an emotional level, a human-like race is more immediately relatable than an inhuman one. No matter what conscious thoughts you have on them, the human-like appearance is part of their emotional profile as a species. Don't discount it in the context of a world with more alien races just because you consider it cliche in a world where races tend to be squashed or stretched humans.

    As much as we emphasize Koizumi's involvement, Majora's Mask isn't solely his work. So no, not really.
    What's amazing about Majora's Mask isn't just the artistry of it, it's the constraints under which it was made. Its development was the result of a nearly perfectly-tuned dev team, with just the right size, skill, and internal familiarity to get shit done both quickly and competently, put under extreme limitations in some departments but given total freedom in others.
    So in short, it's beyond lightning in a bottle, it's a miracle game. The circumstances of its creation are even more impossible to recreate than most.

      The time constraints show, it's why various unrelated concepts were smashed together. Example of the stone temple having three different aesthetics in it plus a bat vampire miniboss with a goofy cartoon face in the middle of it. They had one they had the other, smash it together, use every asset.
      Random ass caves are main quest centric, epona's got no purpose and is just there if you want to ride a horse for fun, the meat of the game is in side content because then it doesn't have to all be linked together, the story's short, the dungeons are short, suddenly cutscenes take on a cinematic tone during the pirate fortress but then it's back to normal once the bay temple segment is over. A lot in Majora is just left to dangle in the wind in an unstructured manner and that was these circumstances at work.
      The devs made good with the situation they had though because this extreme variety enlarges that world and disconnects it from Link the player since it wasn't entirely tailored around the green hero. No wasted effort and the players likes that unique spin so it worked out.

        The concepts work when smashed together because, if nothing else, the developers were pretty much on the same page. Any two bits of content don't necessarily have to resonate with each other, just with the headspace the team was in. And the game does an excellent job of putting you into a similar mental space to the developers, if you can get into it a bit.
        Like you said, part of the circumstances is the devs making the best of the situation they had.

          Well in this case there's a few things which really don't have to resonate together.
          >we need a design for the blacksmith that forges the cool sword
          >i got an underwear nippleman and a buff gimp who screams NYUUU NUUURR
          >do i have to model the nipp
          >ii dayo
          >wait let's contextualize this duo for a sec

            What do you mean this duo is perfectly resonant. Let's say that metal's not the only material getting pounded in that forge if you gnome saying. I mean a blade with an orange and gold harlequin pattern, anon..

    The kokiri work because they reinforce the themes of growing up and losing your innocence. There is nothing wrong with them. They are not hobbits because hobbits are not children. Frodo is 50 something years old during the war of the ring.

      Kokiri are a good expression of living outside the samsara. Hyrule may always endure, but there will be races that will always exist outside of the royal bloodline.

          OoT was the revised version with the blood taken out and the Fire Temple muslim chants replaced and Majoras Mask well... it was full of bugs and would crash also some of the cutscenes were video files instead iirc, I think it also ran worse than a real N64 version of the game

            That's false.
            The AUDIO during the credits of MM GC is streamed from the disk like a CD to prevent the audio issues heard during normal gameplay, but all cutscenes are still animated in-engine.

      I don't think anyone ever explained to Zelda that the Ocarina of Time selectively creates alternate branch realities instead of reshaping a singular timestream by altering the past.
      Being fair, having a musical time machine is quite unanticipated.

        That being said, does this mean that when Link restarts a cycle in MM, he is effectively leaving and dooming the people in the timeline he just left?

          Its mechanics in Majora's Mask may be fundamentally different, as Clock Town is under the purview of the unknown and enigmatic Goddess of Time.
          As we all know, every goddess everywhere is always real. This probably explains the collapsed golden timeline where Link did everything and everyone is happy at the end, regardless of how you handled your final cycle.
