Greetings, Zelda Universe! You probably don’t know me. In fact, I’m sure you don’t. I’m Xizor, and while I’ve been a member here since December of 2003, I’ve posted an imperious 46 posts. Yes. Do not get overwhelmed by how impressed you are.
Anyway, I have been for many years involved in what was Legend of Zelda.com and what became Xero Gaming. However, this first posting will coincide with the closure of Xero Gaming. I am also an active Bureaucrat over at the amazing Zelda Wiki. I had not planned to become a part of Zelda Universe’s team, but sometimes you have to take what people hand you.
Well, to get to the actual part of this you care about, here we go. Every week, I will be searching the forums high and low to find simply the best (or not) threads to feature here on the front page. I call this: Featured Forum Thread. This week’s feature is….
“Just what is so good about Majora’s Mask?” – Started by Zayzie
The thread posits a pertinent and valid question: just what makes people think that Majora’s Mask is the greatest of the Zelda games? A valid question indeed! I myself am not sure, because I have never played. From what everyone gushes, it’s supposedly the reinvention of the Zelda wheel, but I somehow find the idea that a grandiose side quest is the best of the series to be offensive. It simply desecrates the holy ground upon which sits A Link to the Past, the indisputable champion of what makes the greatest Zelda game so great.
So what do you think? Do you think Majora’s Mask gets too much credit? Or perhaps you think that anyone who dares speak out against it is a Zelda heretic? Give your opinion in the thread itself and see what everyone’s buzzing about!
