Water Temple

For some completely unfounded reason, water levels of games tend to be the most hated. People say they are often the most difficult and have fiddly controls. On the contrary, water levels are some of my favorite as well as many other people’s as well.

Destructoid has just recently released their Top Ten Underwater levels in gaming, of which The Great Bay Temple from Majora’s Mask comes in at number 10. Here’s the list:

10. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Great Bay Temple

9. Mega Man Legends 2 – Nino Ruins

8. Mother 3 – Sea Floor Dungeon

7. Super Metroid – Maridia

6. Tomb Raider II – 40 Fathoms

5. Super Mario 64 – Dire Dire Docks

4. Donkey Kong Country – Coral Capers

3. Shadow of the Colossus – Seventh Colossus

2. Super Mario Bros. – World 2-2

1. Mega Man 2 – Bubble Man’s Stage

Poor Ocarina of Time Water Temple. It gets to be the title picture of Destructoid’s feature but then doesn’t even make the list. Now, feel free to call me biased and close-minded, but my own list would have been something like this:

1 – The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Master Quest – Water Temple

2 -The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Great Bay Temple

3 – Super Mario 64 – Jolly Roger Bay

4 – Super Mario 64 – Dire Dire Docks

5- Banjo Kazooie – Clanker’s Cavern

6 – Super Mario 64 – Wet-Dry World

7 – Banjo Kazooie – Rusty Bucket Bay

8- Banjo Tooie – Jolly Roger’s Lagoon

9- Super Mario Galaxy – Sea Slide Galaxy

10 -Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Cosmic Cove Galaxy

Honorable mentions would have gone to Beach Bowl Galaxy and Buoy Base Galaxy From Mario Galaxy and Starshine Beach Galaxy in Mario Galaxy 2.
