The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64, 2000)
guessed by KLXVER and TruckOSaurus
How does a company like Nintendo follow up one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time? It releases another one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. Such was the scenario with Ocarina of Time and its sequel Majora's Mask, a game that actually improves upon the graphics and play control of its predecessor. Whereas Ocarina was a "traditional" Zelda experience, Majora's Mask is unusual; it's much more cerebral and much darker than other games in the series. It also features an unusual hook: the 72-hour timeline, which gives the hero Link only three days to save the world from destruction.
