By the way, I registered anyone who wanted to be friends on Mario Kart, just in case you were wondering.
But anyways, So, the other day I got a free Wind Waker HD with my copy of Mario Kart 8. I forgot how much I loved it, and forgot just why it’s my favorite Zelda. So, for fun, I thought we could all rap about our three favorite Zelda dungeons.
1.) Tower of the Gods (the Wind Waker)
I don’t know why, but this is always the dungeon I think of when I think of the Wind Waker. I really loved this level when I first played it as a munchkin, and those feelings have lingered ever since. The look of the level and the atmosphere are right on. I like that there’s so much water around. It makes the level feel all the colder. There are also really bright shots of rainbow colors over neutrals that really stick out in my mind. I also really loved the song of control—I always thought it sounded pretty chilling. The statues you control are also a really fun addition, and the puzzles you solve with them and Link were clever. The whole thing has this decrepit, ancient, feeling to it, which I love.
2.) Sky Keep (Skyward Sword)
I really liked this level because it put me into that intense mode of concentration that I sometimes get into while playing videogames. I really liked the music it played during the fire part of the level too. I also really liked that it had such bright colors, too. I was getting a little sick of the traditional super-dark dungeons before the final levels in Zelda. The puzzles were fun and clever, and I liked that it combined all the stages you previously went to together. Overall, the look of this game and the look of the Wind Waker are some of the reasons why the two are pretty much my favorite Zelda games.
3.) Stone Tower (Majora’s Mask)
if this doesn’t make your favorite Zelda dungeons list, I’d be very surprised. What can I say? It’s bizarre, it’s dark, it’s subtley creepy, and you can make up all kinds of stories in your head as to why the place is the way it is. And let’s face it, that part where you flip the level upsidedown is just too cool for words. There’s a bunch of really creepy statues hanging around as well. I tried to play this level late at night once, but then I was like, ‘dude, this is way too scary’. Let’s not also forget that the music is pretty boss. Also, you can guess pretty easily that this one is my third favorite Zelda game. The whole concept of everyone’s going to die in three days is the best thing ever.
Which three are your favorites?
