Serious question. I personally only had trouble with Dark Link, but the temple was easy first time I ran through it >_>;

So why do people whine about it whenever someone on the internet mentions it?

1) It really requires you to think and backtrack, where a lot of people just wanna run through rooms one after another


2) They missed a key somewhere and are convinced it's impossible

Also, having to constantly adjust the water level so that you can access the next room tends to grind on people's nerves. Then when you get into the next room, you realize that you missed a key, so you have to backtrack and cycle through the water levels in order to access the room where the key is at, then cycle back through the water levels in order to access the room to use the key. By the time a typical first-time player finally gets to the end of the temple after going through this 4-5 times, their initial frustration has evolved into outright hatred. Then to top it all off, the Morpha boss fight can be almost as annoying as the temple itself, particularly to a first-time player who doesn't know the trick of standing in the corner of the room to stay out of the water tentacles' reach.
This is no time to be arguing about time! We don't have the time!

The main problem is that people think they're too good to use the dungeon map. So if they're missing a key, they have a choice of finding it (by using the convenient map), but they don't.

I honestly felt that Stone Tower Temple in MM was much harder than the Water Temple.

Stone Tower was only truly bad when you wanted to get all of the fairies. Imo, Great Bay Temple is harder.

Now hard for me not counting any of the 2D Zelda games, was the LakeBed Temple.

Because it's the Water Temple.

Personally I find it really annoying when you have to constantly switch between the Kokiri and Iron boots...
