Reasons why Wind Waker gives depressing vibe: Almost all the Hylians were either completely wiped out or completely fled after Ganondorf escaped the Sacred Realm to cause Havoc as revenge against them and the sages/gods for his imprisonment, thus causing Hyrule Castle to be sealed underwater, which now becomes the great sea. The rich history of Hyrule seems to be almost forgotten as well until it's finally rediscovered later in the game.

Both are pretty dark games but I felt Wind Waker for me was especially when you went down to the Tower of Time underwater and it's just an empty world.
Love both those games they're my favorite two. Majora's Mask is number 1 for me and then Wind Waker. People always complained about time in Majora's Mask but if you play the song of slowing and understand how to use saving it's not a problem at all.
