Does any game have an atmosphere better than Majora's Mask?
The lower ceiling of the observatory looks like a moon surface
4 completely different scenes that all are in close proximity.
Kinda hard to not have a clusterfuck here and there. Maybe if OP didn't take a picture from the ocean area and focused on one section.
No game has more atmosphere than Silent Hill.
Except maybe Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.
that timer only appears in the last 6 hours (in-game hours, not actual hours), if I remember correctly.
Also, no OP, many games have great atmosphere, but I don't think any topped Majora yet.
Every single npc in the first game had a name and a schedule and even some npc's who would leave town or only come to town at certain points.

The atmosphere of MM is actually not that great. The only reason why it's even decent is because of the moon falling. The fact that it's going to fall is what is responsible for the atmosphere. Aside from that, none of the areas of the game, save from the Astral Observatory and some areas of Stone Tower, are really that atmospheric on their own. If you think about it, almost all the areas in the game are shockingly bland and boring. The atmosphere of the dungeons is also pretty horrible, and pales in comparison to other 3D Zeldas - nothing in MM comes even close to the Forest Temple, for instance.
So yes, OoT does indeed have a better atmosphere than MM, although I still like MM. OoT has a lot of cool stuff like the far-removed and historic Spirit Temple, a lot of cool little grottos like the forest stage, the weird rainbow wall room, the arrow-rupee room with weird lights on the wall, and the grotto under Kakriko. It just felt like a world with more peculiar touches in my opinion. MM didn't have much of that. It's nice how they made Termina Field more content-filled but it looks very ugly as a result.
Fragile Dreams has a very similar atmosphere to Majora's Mask final night.
I really, REALLY recommend it.
>I haven't played DeS
Apart from Okami, I've never played a game with such an amazing Japanese atmosphere.
Atmosphere doesn't have to be dark and scary. Just remembering the overworld music makes me so happy.
Most of MM's environment looks like a clusterfuck. It took everything that was specifically tailored and constructed for OoT and patched t together to save time. That's why it looks the way it does, as opposed to being intentionally creepy by feeling more like a game instead of a natural environment.
I don't know shit about geography but OoT made sense. A rocky mountainous area seperates the field from the desert, the river actually starts and goes somewhere, the snowy region really just a bit of snow and ice instead of completely frozen over all year round and most of the other environments are low key.
Compare it to this.
