We can easily write off the disturbing undercurrent of "Majora" as a result of aesthetics, but in this post, I want to offer an argument that the horror which pervades the game is much more subtle and existential than that interpretation. I submit that the ultimate reason "Majora's Mask" continues to terrify us is that, as much as we want there to exist an evil for us to conquer, there ultimately exists no evil in the game.
The Legend of Zelda
The legend of Link’s journeys across time and space have stood at the center of video games since the days of the NES. Read With a Terrible Fate’s work on the seminal series here.
