The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

One day, a mysterious mask seller had a very special item stolen from him: Majora's Mask, an evil relic that possesses its wearer. When Skull Kid, the mask's thief, runs into Link one day, he steals the Ocarina of Time and inadvertently thrusts the young adventurer back into the path of danger once more. At the request of the mask seller, Link must now track down Skull Kid to find Majora's Mask and his Ocarina of Time.

A story of masks. The evil mask is fought with righteous masks. The major threat that Link is trying to prevent is Stalkid calling the moon down and the massive destruction that would inevitably cause. This is possible because Majora's Mask apparently makes anything possible. Link has decided to follow the vague advice of some fairy who barely seems like fe knows what fe's doing--presumably because there aren't any better plans---and go to the Swamp, Mountain, Ocean, and Valley. At each of those locations, there is a giant masked monster that is causing environmental shifts and other problems for the locals. Fe learns songs from people that fe can play on feir ocarina. And fe receives some masks after the deaths of some people that allow fem to transform into various species--Deku Nut, Goron, Zora--with some of the benefits that come from being those species. I enjoyed seeing the different species. After defeating each of these four boss monsters, a giant is released from their masks. We only see the giants' legs, with their waist up being covered by clouds, so it's a satisfying reveal when chapter 7 shows their full and glorious form. The beginning and end are dealt with in more depth and the middle sections--where I assume most of the gameplay occurs--is condensed to only include the most plot-forwarding aspects. The final chapter is an origin story for the mask. The story had the structural rigidity that comes from it being based on a Zelda game, the fights were pretty lackluster, and the ending was just whatever. Similarly to Link's Awakening, it takes place in another, non-Hyrule dimension--this time called Termina. I'm not entirely clear on the nature of Termina or whether this Link ever ends up back in Hyrule or not (or if Hyrule even exists in this timeline anymore or not), but I did get the impression that its formation might have been caused by Majora's Mask.
