The Zelda Thread: The timeline might as well be a scrambled Egg

I dont ubderstand the obsession with the timeline because aside from a couple key titles like OOT or Skyward Sword for example, a timeline reveals nothing of worth or use to anyone. Very very VERY few events hinge on knowing when they happened. Its far more inportant to know HOW it happened then when it happened.

Yeah, personally I don’t care much about the timeline, I actually like the idea that this is all some legend and every time the story is told, it’s told differently...

 

of course, this conversation all started because I was curious where Link’s Awakening stood in the timeline, but that’s more so because of how the game ends. I was assuming Windwaker or something came immediately afterwards, but that was before I knew there was a secret ending.

I'm interested in the timeline from an "archeological" perspective. Putting out an official timeline kills a ton of that speculative fun. 

 

I hope to one day create a popular franchise, read fan theories of how things fit together, and then purposely sabotage those theories.

 

I'll be the ultimate troll.  🤤

Isnt that George R. R. Martin's whole shtick?

Its one of the reasons why I'm ok with the timeline being 'fluid'.

The timeline is ever expanding, so it's fun either way.

 

Zelda games are usually full of little details too. Having an established timeline just gives some closure to otherwise endless debating.
