I'd like to say that i have read a few comments on various message boards, where some people suggest that majora's mask is merely the shadow of ocarina of time. I personally have a somewhat different opinion. I'd say that ocarina of time, while without doubt being one of the best games ever made, is a bit superficial, at least compared to majora's mask. If you look at the story in ocarina of time, then it's faily straight forward, with link saving hyrule from ganondorf, but it doesn't really have the same characters or atmosphere as majoras mask. If you put it a bit in perspective, it seems that ocarina of time was missing some of the depth from majora's mask. If you look at the story in majora's mask, it starts out with link being seen riding through the lost woods, where he begins on a more personal journey.
