The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is a 2000 action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. It is the second game released on the console in the The Legend of Zelda franchise. Majora's Mask was critically acclaimed by reviewers. It introduced a more complex plot and is considered one of the darker Zelda titles. It also introduced a time system that drew a mixed reaction from players.
In recent years, Majora's Mask has been gaining more respect from the gaming community, to the point where it won the Game of the Decade Contest and was the first runner-up in the IGN Zelda Tournament, behind Ocarina of Time.
