Groundhog Day and Majora's Mask.

Groundhog Day is THE time loop story. Every time loop I've watched afterwards feels like it's chasing in its footsteps. Majora's Mask takes what GhD did and realizes it on a larger scale, making a whole world out of it. 17 years later and no other game has even attempted to match what it did.

Because timeloops are infinity itself. It's the same stuff repeated over and over again, and doing such thing is a horrible strain on people's minds, like running around in a maze without seeing the exit. But you need to have a reason for people to experience such thing that could cost them their humanity, so you need to introduce a time limit, a sort of deadline. And a tragic one is the best, because people would otherwise quit rather than get any motivation to run in the maze.

A mischevious child of the forest steals a demonic mask from a Mask Salesman and gets semi-possessed by it, using its insane power to crash the moon itself into the earth. You have 3 days before the moon impacts the earth, and you have to gather 4 giants to hold it back. Three days isn't enough of course so you use the Song of Time to constantly warp back to the start of the first day.

What makes the game and its setting so good is how the world itself reacts to the moon. Some characters brush it off and say nothing will happen, others flee (futilely as it destroys the world) the city in hopes to escape the impact, others just accept it and spend time with their loved ones. Really magical game.

Sounds interesting. So they're not just showing the reaction of the MC's friends, but also, of the commoners?
Also, how does the gathering the giants thing work if you constantly return to the first day? Do you seek each one and write down their location so you can visit them as quickly as possible in a single run?

When you think about it, yes, infinity is "edgy". It's immeasurable, too large for humanity to even grasp (have you even tried to think about how big Earth is, to really represent its size in your head? Now do the same with Jupiter, the Sun, the Solar System, the Milky Way, our local cluster, the observable universe? I think you got my point), too complex to understand, too unknown to actually even think about it.
Infinity is "edgy" because it has no end. It's a state of absolute stillness where what we know and use as reference lose their meaning because they are too small in comparison. Time? Laws? Emotions? None of that shit matters, and even laws of physics become distorted at some point.

If you really think about it, to think about infinity is a bit like gazing into the abyss.

Each giant gives you the power to wake them up when you meet them, so once you've found one it's just a matter of summoning them. What a lot of people don't know is that you can attempt to summon the giants before you get all 4 and a cutscene will play where they fail.

Another cool thing about the game is how you can change things too. There's an entire optional sidequest about a couple (Kafei and Anju) who are engaged to each other but Kafei was cursed into the body of a little boy and had his half of their marriage masks stolen (sun and moon masks).

If you do nothing, Anju's grandmother convinces her that her fiance has eloped with another women and she flees the city into the countryside to take refuge with her friend at her farm (seen here >>162122435)
If you go far enough into the quest, Kafei gives you a pendant to show Anju that he's still devoted but desperately trying to undo the curse and tack down his sun mask from a thief. After this, Anju will not flee the city and instead wait at the inn for him.
If you fail Kafei's quest afterwards, they die in the impact separated
If you complete the quest, they reunite at Anju's inn mere minutes before the impact and exchange masks. They thank you and say they'll stay there but that you should flee.

The writing behind the summoning of the giants sounds a bit iffy - are you supposed to turn off your brain and just accept that contracts last through time?
At any rate, that sounds really good for a videogame. I don't really play games, especially in recent times (I've heard that Majora is popular, but never really played it) - I might consider playing this one.
>>
I Liked Steins;Gate (The VN is better) the most. Foreshadowing is a nice thing to have. Mostly I just like it when time loop stories don't just randomly change rules FUCKING STEINS;GATE 0 AAAAAAARGH
>>
>>162122547
The MC is bland (it's Link after all) in order to have you experience the whole thing by yourself, but you can also feel him evolve during some key points. After all, his reason for going on a trip is to find a true friend, and he gets to experience several roles through the various stories with the NPCs. For example, he gets to become a son, a tribe chief, and even a lover during some parts of the game.
And of course, there are particularly powerful side quests, like the Romani Ranch or the Anju quest.
It's the tragedy of the story that's really interesting and beautiful. Each environnement depicts a stage of grief at a time, becoming more and more desolate as time goes by. I won't be like this idiot >>162123268 and tell you every little thing because it's useless. Just play it.

It's at least partially nostalgia but I really love majora's time loops.
Groundhog day is really good as well.
for anime I'd probably say stein;s gate, though that was a bit less focused on the looping aspect and more on the what they could change via time travel aspect

The manga had pretty sweet extra chapter about the origin of majora.
In some place before time there's a powerful beast that kills people but it is bored. A man show up with a drum, he makes a deal with the beast, starts drumming, creates time, the beast start dancing. Eventually the beast drops dead of exhaustion. The man then carves the beast's shell into a mask to seal it's powers within.
