This game…The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask is one of the most saddest games I have ever played.
My first time playing this game was when I was about 7 to 9 years old, and my brother was always the first to play new games. To us, as young kids, Majora’s Mask was simply a game where you need to eventually beat and save the world! I thought it was pretty cool how you can turn into other creatures by wearing a mask!! It was like halloween with a splash of adventure lol
Though I was too young to understand the deep messages it conveyed to the players. Now, I am 19 years old so 12 to 10 years have passes and I replayed Majora’s Mask. I started to better understand the game, and the sadness behind it.
When you are inside of the moon and the little kids start asking you deep questions about yourself and the choices you have made in life.
I was taken back by it. As a kid I thought they were just silly questions and I didn’t really understand them. They question your friends, who you are, what makes you happy etc.
This game had also exposed the feeling of losing someone valuable in your life. Like your sona hero or a celebrity or lover
What really put the icing on the cake for me would be Kafei and Anju’s side quest
both Anju and Kafei loved each other so much that they had chosen to die together. Despite Kafei being cursed by the Skull kid. I was literally crying at this part!
Then, a recent youtube video had shown me something I have never noticed in Majora’s Mask and that would be on the final day in Romani’s Ranch. omg.
This part…Cremia had wanted to make Romani happy before they await death. This part really got to me, and I couldn’t help but cry. I found it so hard breaking that Cremia had to be strong and keep her sister happy till the last hour.
There are so many sad parts to this game that I can stay here all night and talk about it, but I won’t :’D because it really saddens me.
To me this game helped encourage me to treasure my time. Even though this is a video game, and yes I am highly aware of that, it really makes you think. Rather it’d be about your own choices in life or for you to value what you have because you never know when it’ll disappear.
of course this is just my opinion you can disagree if you want…but it’s kinda pointless since this is how I view the game…>w>;;
I highly recommend for those who haven’t played it, to give it a try! It’s not just sad it also has it’s funny and heart warming parts :’D I’m not trying to discourage you to play the game x’D
okay I’m done ;w;
