Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

   
 
Ocarina of Time
 
Not too long after Ocarina of Time was released for the Nintendo 64 system, a sequel to it followed. Majora's Mask took place very shortly after the point where the Ocarina of time ended. This time Ganondorf was no longer the villain. Majora, a demonic being who has inhabited a mask, is now the evil foe Link is forced to overcome. If he doesn't, the moon falls onto the world and everyone dies. Even though time travel played an important part in Ocarina, it was nothing compared to how its used in Majora's Mask. Link is given the ability jump backwards in time to 3 days before the moon crashes down. This is absolutely necessary as there are many things to accomplish that take most of the 3 days to do so. The hard part of the game is that going back in time resets everything you've accomplished except beating temples. Also, masks play an important part of the game, enabling Link to become a Zora, a Goron, or a Deku. Each of these gives link unique abilities while removing the use of most of his weapons. Exploring, fighting and puzzle solving are still in abundance. While I prefer Ocarina of Time to Majora's Mask, I still find myself coming back to play this game again.
