jilllikesstuff replied to your post: I find that Metroid’s atmosphere is a bit darker than LoZ’s as a whole. I find that when playing Majora’s Mask I sometimes get the same feeling I get while playing Metroid, a sort of dread of what’s next.
And aside of the environment, I gotta say the music adds on to the dark element as well. Shadow Temple and The Well anyone? The list goes on when it comes to dark settings. I love it!
You know what I think adds to the darkness of a game?
