I said it before in this thread but I think to get the most out of Zelda games you have to put a bit in, (as I'm sure you're aware from your play-throughs of LoZ and Oracle of Ages) and that is so true for OoT and Majoras.
I think while you are going through your Zelda phase you MUST pick up a 3DS soon with a copy of OoT as the new style visuals pull you in so much more now. The enjoyment I'm getting from it is off the charts, it's up there with the very best games I've ever played and I'm sure it'll be the same for you.
A few minor reasons I didn't get on with it like others are the sometime ugly characters. The fairies were really odd looking and somewhat out of character to the feel of the series. Also the visuals, while nice were not as vibrant as LttP and I never liked the sampling of the music as much, though the actual tunes were good.
I will get OoT3D. I can't wait in fact. I love the fact it is portable now, for some reason I love playing Zelda on a portable. The other is the visuals look a millions times nicer then the old version.
I never actually played Majora at all. By the time it had come out I had completely moved from current gen Nintendo, not to return for some time. I pretty much had enough of all of their repeated IPs around the turn of the millenium. I found though I loved a few, Starfox and F-Zero mainly, I still prefered many of the SNES originals. This continued into the GCN, Mario Galaxy was average, Starfox was poor, Wind Waker never appealed, F-Zero GX was ok, but it felt more like a tech demo, no physics!
Anyway i'm kinda pleased that happened as now I can embrace the games I missed. Wind Waker is something that really appeals now, think it looks beautiful. Ocarina is a title I will finish though. I am at the Water Temple on the GC version as I said, I should just load it up to carry on really.
