The Missing Link
I promised. I threatened. I want to hear your opinions.
One of the things that I don’t think has been done anywhere that I’ve seen in the community is an official poll about how strongly people care about the relationships of the Zelda games amongst one another. To a large extent, the community is polarised between caring and not caring, but I have a hunch that there’s actually a gradient of opinions, people who care a little or a small bit as opposed to none at all or 100 percent. I’m certain some people actually were eager to know that Majora’s Mask was a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time… or that Wind Waker took place “100 years” after that. So for this Poll’s Voice, I want to hear your thoughts about what you think about history within the timeline.
As always, the actual responses to the poll are extremely exaggerated, so please don’t not pick an extreme choice one way or the other because it’s “too extreme”! (I don’t think that anyone really believes any particular point of view exactly as written!) Just pick one that seems to fit closest with the way you think.
So... about history... To what degree should previous Zelda titles play a role in new Zelda games? (Or in other words, how much a factor should timeline be in new Zelda games?)
