According to the fans over at GameFAQs, Majora’s Mask was the best game in the past decade. In one of their regular gaming tournaments decided complete by fan votes, Majora’s Mask took the crown over Super Smash Bros. Brawl. While this is a great achievement for Nintendo (an all Nintendo final), you still have to ponder how it came down to those two games. With masterpieces out there like Knights of the Old Republic (conveniently not in the competition mind you), Mass Effect… you have to wonder. Still, it was a good contest for Zelda. Majora’s Mask beat out The Wind Waker to make it to the elite 8, while Twilight Princess beat out Kingdom Hearts II to make it into the elite 8. It then proceeded to lose to Brawl. One thing I learned from this is clearly they have a lot of Nintendo fans, because I don’t know how Brawl made it to the final 8, let alone the finals itself by beating out Fallout 3. Still, it’s a fun competition and it was neat to see Majora’s Mask being so popular. Maybe this is a sign Nintendo may want to revisit what made MM great in a future title.
