Still my second favorite 3D Zelda, behind Wind Waker. The world is tiny by today's standards and a bit barren, but it's really well designed and has a couple of the most memorable dungeons and songs.

OoT was my first Zelda along with Zelda II, and it's definitely the one I remember the most fondly and replay the most often. The 3DS port is imo the definitive version for fixing a lot of the issues with control and dated design aspects while still feeling like you're playing the same game.

Even though everything OoT did was probably done better in one sequel or another, it still has a place in my heart that can't be overwritten.

It's probably better than 95% of whatever's on there, so it's a good idea.

...I can see replaying OOT sometime.

I will never revisit Majora. I despise it.

Maybe revisiting would lead you to come 'round on it?

Is it the time limit? I wouldn't go as far as to say I despise it but that's my reason for not being able to fully enjoy and complete it.

I think I said this recently elsewhere, so forgive me for repeating myself, but I love the 3-Day Cycle. You have infinite time to mess around and do whatever. You're in no rush to finish the game because you can always rewind time. The way I see it, it's not a limit; it's limitless.

i think majora's mask works better if you think of it less in the vein of a typical zelda experience and more like a groundhog day-style temporal sandbox with some zelda dungeons

It's been quite a while since I've played it but doesn't your dungeon progress get lost if you rewind time or something? I don't like the nagging feeling that despite having probably plenty of time that there is a limit. It works in 2D platformers I guess but I never even liked it there.

dungeon progress doesnt get lost all the puzzles and keys/stuff you found hold over when you rewind time, but you do have to go back to the start of the dungeon

^you keep key items, but the puzzles do reset. Of course when you clear the dungeon, your clear data (aka the boss remains) carry over in perpetuity.

That said, there’s a warp point at the entrance of every dungeon, so if you get to a dungeon, it’s almost a given that you’ll want to go back to Day 1, slow time down, and go through on a fresh clock. A full 3 days in-game is about 2 hours and 45 minutes. I can’t imagine any Zelda dungeon, especially MM’s, taking that full span.
