This is crazy talk:
If there’s one thing in the video game world that’s been twisted and misunderstood more than anything else, it’s the timeline for the Legend of Zelda series. Due largely in part to both A) Nintendo not making the effort to make the connections between the games clear, and B) Nintendo of America putting a timeline up on the official Zelda site that in no way makes any sense, fans of the series are lost and confused. Well fear not, fellow readers. After hours upon hours of research, and lots of help from our fantastic forum-goers, I’ve managed to compile what I think is the most accurate representation of the Zelda timeline available.
