    Yeah, that forest temple freaks the hell out of me too. Try playing this temple at nighttime, in the dark, with no lumination except that of your tv set.
    You'll get the creeps man…I'm sure.
    Though I think the original fire temple theme is even worst. Glad I never heard it while playing at night.

    Fantastic list! All great picks. I wish it could be a top 11, because the Spirit Temple them from OoT is out of this world.

    • The Spirit Temple from Ocarina of Time is my number one favorite, although I think that the list above is pretty great, as well! ^_^
