My favorite zelda game would either be Ocarina of Time, or Skyward Sword.

p.s. I had a chance to get Majora's Mask on Wii virtual console through Club Nintendo, but decided not to because i don't care for the 3-day time limit.

You get to retry those three days as much as you want and you keep all the important stuff you have, including rupees, mask and most quest items, even if you do go back to the beginning.
The three-day thing just works to add some challenge to your dungeon exploring and make you have to manage your time a little by fast-forwarding and slowing down, but it's not a limit. It's just an interesting mechanic that regulates the game world.

IMO it's one of the best Zelda game exactly because of that. You don't see many games with that sort of original concept anymore.

nope, you have to store those in the bank. if you dont do that you lose them too...

and i was trying to tell him that without giving too much info... didnt want to spoil it for him. but i guess its not much of a spoiler anyway. and honestly, its not that of a challange either if you use the you-know-what (im sure you know?). i think its just there to give a darker feeling to the game (just like looking up). its the only zelda game (i think) where you pretty much fight a natural disaster and not a bad guy. and its a slow death in a way too. i think the main reason they made it this way was also to give each NPC a special schedule each day.

...thus keeping them. I don't see your point.
I agree, the 3-day thing and that sick moon grin looming over you give the game a much darker, impending doom sort of feeling. It's generally the darkest Zelda game all-around in my opinion, even though the Shadow Temple in OoT gives it a run for its money.

No kidding. I got Zelda I and II through virtual console and they are HARD. Although they do remind me of Link's Awakening, which was my first Zelda game. Or rather LA resembles them...

I haven't been disappointed with a Zelda game yet. Well, I guess I didn't care for the originals too much, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, seeing as how they are older than I am.

[/quote]wow... are you sure you understood that correctly. the 3-day time limit plays a ROLE in the game but you dont actually play it for 3 days... please read it again its a great game.

Yes, it is not a 3 day time limit real time, but a 54 minute time limit, and I don't care for time limits.

Well that just doesn't make sense, because you are going back in time, you should keep rupees you have in your pocket instead of the bank.

p.s. now you are making me regret my decision to not get majora's mask, for free.

OoT 3D... because it's 3D!!! But really it's better than the others no doubt. I've played Twilight Princess and it wasn't that great. I like Ocarina of Time because it when you go to the future and see what happened to the different people and communities, it makes you realize the consequences of your actions.

Ocarina of Time is the most epic for me. But i think Majoras Mask is the most touching and fun to play.

While not a bad game, it's certainly my least liked of all the console LoZ games.

it makes you realize the consequences of your actions.


The consequence of the world being taken over because you went into some other dimension for 7 years to grow up to stop that evil? I always thought that was kind of odd. It's not really your actions either.

Ocarina of Time is the most epic for me


I shall forever remember when I was ~9 years old walking out of the Temple of Time and into Hyrule...only to be screamed at by a zombie. Gave me nightmares...

I agree though Ocarina of Time is one of the best games ever. Interesting story, good gameplay, good graphics (for its time to be sure) various quests, challenging dungeons and an entire world to explore.

Wind Waker is probably the second best LoZ console game, followed by Majora's Mask.

I have to agree with Sauron23, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is the best. It has puzzles, skill, and fun. Epic.
