Majora's Mask is one of my favorites too, but it's because of the story and characters. If you play it as a straight Zelda game and ignore the sidequests, it's kind of bare bones with its mere 4 dungeons.

I like Majora's Mask too, it's one of my favorite LOZ games that I played (along with Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Awakening). I agree that there isn't a whole lot of dungeons in the game but the sidequests, story, and characters were neat.

You guys know the room in Richard's villa where you have to throw a pot at the door? Yeah. That stumped me for days and I felt so fucking dumb when I had to look up a guide.

I like Majora's Mask quite a lot. I'm not sure if I'd call it my favorite Zelda or not, but I always found the sidequests to be some of the more entertaining parts of the game. It's probably the Zelda game I've come the closest to properly completing, if nothing else.

The only one I've completed to 100% is a Link to the Past, which I did very recently. It's among my favorites just for how fast-paced it is. I think the biggest problem among the 3D Zeldas is that they're really slow games for no reason at all. Wind Waker and Majora's Mask at least make up for it with a great atmosphere.

Fuck the light tear quests in Twilight Princess, by the way. I can say without a doubt that those segments are worse than the Triforce quest in WW.

I need to go back and try Twilight Princess again just to see if I still like it as much as I did when I last played it a few years back.

I definitely don't recall the Tears being as annoying as the Triforce pieces in Wind Waker, though. Maybe it's just because I played WW more recently and it's just still stuck in my mind, but that part is so tedious it's ridiculous. I really don't like to look things up if I can help it, but I'm just not patient enough to gather the Dragon Balls in that game without looking up the stuff I need to do.

What kills it is that you have to do it three fucking times, each one longer than the last, and you're stuck in the gimped wolf form. By the third one, human Link has the bow, bombs, new sword moves and a whole bunch of other stuff. All wolf Link can do is sniff and dig.

Aren't there several rooms in bottle grotto with that solution, though? Maybe my memory's getting fuzzy.

I don't think so. I know it shows up in other dungeons, but Richard's villa is the first place you encounter it.

Really? I guess I might be alone here but I really didn't mind those parts. Probably because I enjoyed playing as the wolf for his speed. I'd say Link never totally outclasses the wolf, because you can use Midna's death circle thingy which kills those shadow beasts instantly, and you don't really need to bother with regular enemies, just run past them. And the tears are not hard to find by any means, they're all on your mini map. I found myself switching to wolf form all the time once you unlock it in the regular world.

Just started a new file on The Minish Cup. So far I'm enjoying it a lot. I already made my way through Minish Woods already and I found Ezlo. I like how Ezlo can act sarcastic and humorous sometimes.

Minish Cap is a very run-of-the-mill Zelda game.

Nothing particularly wrong with that; the Zelda pedigree is a great thing to have backing you. And an average Zelda game is still a great game.

That being said, there's really nothing that sets Minish Cap that far apart. Yeah it's a handheld so it does get some slack, but I think the Oracle games still hold the standard for the best handhelds.

Honestly, now that the 3DS has the horsepower to run a fully 3D game, I'd love to see Nintendo actually go all-out on a handheld Zelda instead of half-ass it like they did with the DS games.

I love the Oracle games dearly, but sometimes they have parts that are really frustrating to have to do. Say what you will about Awakening's overworld, but it's nothing compared to the irritating Goron dancing. Hell, at least the Subrosia dancing is optional.

I love Ages and hate it at the same time. That's probably because I didn't lose my copy of it.

Awakening's overworld is more focused. There aren't pointless mandatory minigames, or expanses of filler zones. It's a meat-and-potatoes adventure-world, but loaded with extra desserts with all the secret nooks, caves, and crannies waiting to be discovered.

Though the mine-cart minigame in the oracles games were really fun.

Yeah, the Oracle games' overworlds I could hardly stand. They're gimmicky as all hell, especially when it comes to the animal friends, and it's way too easy to get stuck and lost. The dungeons are great in both, though. Link's Awakening's overworld just feels, y'know, complete. When you see something you can't get to, you know it's because you can't get to it yet. With the Oracle games, you're constantly wondering if you need to change seasons/timelines, or if you have the wrong animal (Can you even change the animal you get?). It's really irritating.

I still think that the Oracle games are generally superior overall due to the fact that they're really loaded with content too (nearly every sidequest, pretty much, though I never beat Ages' Hero's Cave), but yeah, LA generally has quicker in-between portions before and after dungeons. The only time I can think of there being any long bits in between are the Rooster quest and the Trading quest (which most likely was happening in the first place).

Seasons was more focused, too, though not to the same degree. The only pointless minigame that I can think of in Seasons were the Hyrule Castle Courtyard quests, and even then those only happened twice early on (Rosa and the Feather Thieves).

Ages is probably the worst offender though. The bit between Crown Dungeon and Mermaid's Cave is absolute hell and I can't stand having to do it every time, even if the minigames are fun (except dancing).

And no, you can't change the animal you get. However, you shouldn't need animals anywhere other than areas that are specifically designed and change to adapt to whatever animal you choose. I had the official guide - each special animal area was just that, and everything else was up to items.

I didn't mind the whole age changing/seasons changing thing in the Oracle games, but Seasons certainly wasn't that challenging...It took me 4 days to get through it.

The Hero's Cave challenge was pretty neat though.

And poor Ganon was just a mindless raging nut.

EDIT: The boss music was a little more decent in those games too. The Boss music of Link's Awakening was demoted to the mini-boss music even!

this one's still one of my favorites from Ages even if it is simple and short :lol:

The Oracle games are the only major Zelda game(s) I don't own or have ever played. I'm considering getting one of them soon. Are the games drastically different (I know one has a time changing system and one has a season changing system)? If so, which one should I get?
