Your first sentence answers all. You kinda had to be there. And those seem like incredibly minor gripes for a game that came out 13 years ago.
The joke is Majora came out 2 years later and fixed all of them but people still like OoT more.
Majora's Mask is different, strange, and terrifies people uncomfortable with breaking out of the traditional Zelda mold.
Then what about any other Zelda game ever, OoT is still the king for some reason.
I will shoot anyone who actually claims OoT is better than Wind Waker if I were to meet them in person.
I will go get a gun license, buy a mother fucking gun, go to a shooting range and pay to have lessons so I can learn to properly carry and operate a firearm, and then I will shoot them if they are still waiting for me in the same place.
If not I will go home and spam their inbox and just be satisfied with that.
