My original location in the Zelda community was Nintendo's Nsider forums (before they were infested with spam and n00bs). I was a Zelda newbie, not knowing much about anything save the post-OoT games. I learned quickly, however, and eventually "grew up," eventually owning a version of every Zelda except OoA and FS (GBA), and beating nearly all of them. I learned of such Zelda lore as the CD-i catastrophes, the cartoon series, and, yes, the timeline.
I began creating a timeline before I knew that the controversy was so huge, and eventually learned that my timeline sucked. I created a new one, this time using the facts, and after much debate and several revisions to my timeline. My journey for timeline anwers soon led me to other lands away from Nsider, namely Zhq, where I also settled down. I came for the timeline, but stayed for other reasons. 'Tis a great place. Now I'm here today, still researching and although I have learned much about the details of the Zelda series, I am still no closer to a perfect timeline than I was when I first began. I'll keep trying, though.
Of course, timeline debate is not my sole reason for liking the Zelda series. It's all about the gameplay: that's my motto. By far, my favorite Zelda game (co-incidentally my favorite game, period) is A Link to the Past, with Link's Awakening trailing close behind. ALttP, LA, and TWW are my three favorite video games of all time. Other games that I like include, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario Sunshine, Golden Sun, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Resident Evil 4, Tales of Symphonia, Super Mario World Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Half-Life2, and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
In reality, I am a 15 year-old highschool student, studying to eventually work in the gaming industry, whether it be development (what I really want), the media, or even just retail. It's what I'm best at, and I think that it would be the perfect calling for me.
