I'm replaying this right now....and my god, the story actually holds up.
It's so refreshing to see characters who don't fall back on the endless tropes that exist today in JRPGs. Yeah, the game steals quite a bit from a few popular novels, but I'd much rather have that than "edgy/overconfident young hero" or "cute girls being cute" as the entire focal point of the plotline.
There are a lot of plotholes, as exist in most any work of science fiction that dares to create it's own universe, but I'm actually compelled by the story alone to keep playing the game, which is something that is far too rare today.
Anyone want to talk about this game?

FUCK Majora's Mask. This game sucks balls. My friend recently had me over for a week and had me play Ocarina of Time. Loved it. I only ever played the original and A Link to the Past when I was a kid.
So I finished OoT in that week and decided to download MM and an emulator. I got to the first temple and ran out of time during it. So i reset the day and got all the way to the end and beat the boss. Right before I start the race to get the Mask of Scents I hit the 5 minute mark and ran out of time before I could finish. So I reset and found out I had to do the WHOLE FUCKIN TEMPLE over again just to move the stupid thing in the way to do the race again. I fail the race a few times and finally decided that this game is everything wrong with video games.
Now I'm all for a challenge in the games that I play, and I do oppose how games today have no challenge when it comes to game overs, but c'mon! Don't make me do the same crap over and over just because I run out of time in the three days. I mean, hell, you have to go back into the Woods of Mystery EVERYTIME you want to take the stupid boat ride, just to access the Palace and the Temple? And I kept losing my rupees instead of being able to stash them and get the next wallet and that was pissin me off too. Fuckin game.

So /v/, how long do you think it will be before we see a reference to Gangnam Style in a video game?
The song got super popular really quick, and lets be honest, its gonna happen at some point.
Do you think it will be a character made in the image of PSY, perhaps the song playing on a radio station, or maybe even someone in the background imitating the dance from the video.
Oh and I'm not talking some random indie game, I'm talking something mainstream.
I'm not surprised if it doesn't turn up in the next GTA, on a radio station.
I actually like the song, couldn't care less for the video or dance though
