          No. People were arguing about a Zelda timeline way before Historia came out, especially after both WW and TP made direct references to OoT. The only real curveball Nintendo's official one threw was jamming all the pre-OoT games into a third timeline.

                The notion that the Zelda series is just a bunch of disconnected legends is newer than its adherents want you to think.
                Zelda 2 was a direct sequel. People would've been confused if ALttP was just a vague retelling of the same premise as both prior games. So they definitively set it in the far past of the first two games. That's where the name comes from. It's "the past" of the first two games, the only other games that existed at the time.
                Then ALttP Link had some further adventures on Game Boy in LA and the Oracle games, and then came OoT, which depicted events told as a legend in ALttP (with some revisions, in fairness). MM was, again, a direct sequel.
                It was only with WW (coincidentally, the first game Aonuma was in charge of) that things got hairy, since it took place after the same OoT ending that was clearly intended to lead to ALttP.

                I actually thought WW was a perfect prequel between OoT and the NES games, because it would explain why everything is so barren and rocky. Its from a receded great flood. But i wasnt aware Lttp was a prequel back then and always assumed for some reason it came after the nes games.

                I think if you stripped some of the OoT-specific references, it'd make an okay amount of sense coming after Zelda 1 & 2, ironically.
                There's corrupt, and then there's so corrupt you can't be trusted with a gift from the gods you worship. If there was any Hyrule that might have benefitted from being wiped away, genuinely, it's THAT one, not one fresh out of the Sealing War.

                Even back in the day, Nintendo officially said that ALTTP was a prequel to the first two games with a different Link and Zelda. You can see this on the back of the box. However, there really isn't anything directly tying the game to the first two games within the actual game itself, it might as well be a reboot.

          There is no one game that explains the whole thing, but plenty that have direct, blatantly stated connections to those before it and those before it to others before those. Plus instruction manual backstories. Plus direct dev interviews stating certain games are prequels or contain the same shared characters.

          Hell, even if it's non canon, the fact Nintendo gave the ok to the plot of hyrule warriors which specifically is based on the concept of a chronology existing is heavy evidence Nintendo gives the slightest of shits and always had some intent, even if loose and oversights may contradict stuff.

        "the timeline" has always been fanfiction garbage. nintendo saw it and went "ha ha, neat." and published it themselves. each game stands alone as its own thing, with very few games being directly connected to another (lttp and lbw, ages and seasons, maybe a couple of others). every mainline game has been distinctly isolated to stand on its own, where nothing is truly related, just recycled names/places/things.

        timeline gays are drooling morons, and not real zelda fans. just moronic autists with a fixation.

              It was never split in ALttP. Ganon had the full Triforce.
              The sages sealed him in the Sacred Realm in OoT, which is theoretically where the Triforce went back to eventually. Big brain move on their part.

              ALTTP has Ganon imprisoned in the sacred realm with the full triforce; it doesn't split. It actually makes sense to have it as a "link fails" branch from OOT in that regard, where Ganon takes the triforce parts from Zelda and Link only to be locked in the sacred realm as a last ditch move from the sages.

            Not that anon, but the origin of Ganon being described in a LttP as a transformed thief Ganondorf and seeing it basically play out in Ocarina of Time was strong evidence. Unless it happened twice.

            Ocarina was written with the intention of being about the imprisoning war mentioned in alttp's backstory.
            Furthermore, it's explicitly ganon's origin story, serves as the explanation of link's Peter pan clothes, gives more details on the master sword, explains the creation of hyrule as it was made by the Goddesses in its own backstory, the sages become the basis for the town names in AoL and so on.

            Go replay Oot and read the text. A huge chunk of its writing serves as an origin to things in tloz, aol and alttp.

              Okay that makes more sense.

              It's just a bunch or really strange decisions made in the game. It feels like multiple different writing teams that didn't talk with each other, or the game was written in two phases with two or more different ideas and then mashed together.

              Like I said earlier, if you think about it, other than fixing the house and telling the guy to go to Tarrey Town, Link didn't interact with Bolson.
              Seems like only the characters with the most memorable quests remember Link, and it does sort of make sense.

              First time noticing it? Every sufficiently large game suffers from this to some extent. That doesn't even necessarily mean open world either, Persona 5 also pretty obviously had multiple writing teams that did not talk nearly as much as they needed to. Open world is just a surefire way to smack your game in the face with the limits of human creativity at full force.

They didn't disappear after the first Calamity, they were buried underground and the Hylians excavated them right before the second Calamity. Even if they teleport underground instead of just getting buried over time, we should see them in the Depths given that even older Zonai shit is down there. Plus their purpose isn't complete, Ganon's awake again, so they should teleport back, right? Not arguing with you BTW, I don't think the devs thought of a good answer for this

I always felt the inevitable true, true, true origin this time guys revelation, is that Hylia, Demise and The Hero were all born from Triforce wishes made to counteract the other one.(mortals wish for guidance, Triforce creates Hylia, rebelling mortals wish for power to stop this deity, Triforce creates the literal demise of the goddess, those trapped in an age of war wish for a courageous champion to end the chaos, Triforce creates The Hero)

Make a true Zelda 3 with nes era link going on a new journey in a new land.

      The Koroks are what the Kokiri actually look like, since they're forest spirits. They only looked like children in OoT so Link wouldn't feel like an outsider even more than he already did by not having a fairy.

        Why didn't they turn back into trees as soon as Link left the forest and was exposed to the weird shit of Hyrule? Which he promptly had almost zero reaction to, because when you're directly inspired by a character (Peter Pan) the last thing you should do is try to add characterization and improve on it.

        It cannot be, the kokiri didnt even know Link was a Hylian. Its more likely they turned into koroks after the flood because the small forms are better suited to the island tree were they live and to fly on the wind better. Besides, pretty sure the kokiri sage acts surprised when he sees the Korok

      I stand to reason that OoT ruined everything. It was praised for its graphical advancement and adaptation of the established adventure to the new visuals. That's it. Once you establish that all you need to garner critical acclaim is related to graphical/visual elements, all motivation for mechanical advancement becomes lost. Particularly if you have zero respect for yourself and the medium.

    replayed oot recently in jp and it's unreal how much better the writing is than the shit you see in botw/totk. even shiek's edgy poems before each temple are infinitely more readable than any fricking line of zelda dialogue in totk, not to mention the GODAWFUL champions vs their oot "counterparts". i think it's just a fricking mistake to have that much focus on character writing when you have terrible writers, the level of restraint shown in oot is admirable by comparison. each of the major npcs for each race only gets like a handful of lines and a sort of gesture towards a fuller personality, like ruto really only has two little scenes with young link, but those scenes (and the GAMEPLAY) succesfully convey her personality. versus breath of the wild where you see the fricking stupid champions over and over and never really learn anything more about them than what you can infer about their stock character type from the first few moments you're introduced to them

      The ability to imply the existence of something you don't directly show is a lost art. Hyrule is, objectively, not all that expansive, but it is precisely crafted to imply more than is present in many key places. It works hard to give you the feeling of exploring a full world without actually making you trudge through all that dead air. Now games have the resources to just throw huge fricking expanses of walking forward at the player, and players are on average so dumbed down they prefer it.

    I know this thread was created for general timeline autism, but where in OP's pic does it say they're retconning the existing parts of the timeline? They'll probably just say BOTW/TOTK are set a gorillion years in the future without confirming which specific timeline they're on, like they did when BOTW came out. And that the Zonai showed up at some point after all the other games but before BOTW/TOTK and their "first" kingdom of Hyrule was just the "first" one they were familiar with.
    >but that's fricking stupid
    I agree, but it's less stupid compared to the Zonai showing up around Skyward Sword and no one mentioned them or the Demon King under the castle at any point in the other games even though BOTW/TOTK Zelda learned about them just by going to her own archives. It would be bad business to upset timeline autists any more than they already have by telling them the artbook they bought in 2011 isn't just out of date, but completely wrong. If they're smart they'll never truly retcon anything, but keep making up new bullshit that you have to buy more and more books to understand

      The Zonai easily could have been the Minish before they shrunk. Rauru even wonders where his people went.
      Not that it matters, because both races are just flavour of the month that will vanish forever by the next game, never to be referenced again. We've had I think four sky races that "created" Hyrule at this point. The Minish, The Wind Tribe, The Ooca, and now the Zonai.

          It was definitely implied, because you see a flashback of a past hero, and he has no hat. I don't think it qualifies as a retcon, but is is silly.
          It was the first game as far as I remember that solidified Zelda has some godlike hidden power independent of the Triforce.

      Yes. I think they play the games out of order, so the connections are lost on them. I started with OoT, so the references in WW and TP are obvious, but if you started with BotW and just played whatever then I can see how the games would seem disconnected.

        Outside of obvious examples like Zelda1 to Zelda2, Wind Waker to Phantom Hourglass, or OoT to Majora, I don't really see too much harm in just playing them as you please. While some of the nods and connections are neat, it's not something to get too worked up about.

          There's no harm in playing them in whatever order, but if you play them in whatever order and it causes you to fail to see the connections, you can't continue to insist "they're just nods, nothing canonical!" when people point them out to you.

            Sure, but that's expressly different from saying that all the games are retellings of some legend and acting like a comprehensible continuity didn't exist at one point.

            It's not playing them out of order that bothers people. It's people playing them out of order, then insisting none of the games are connected outside of direct sequels that bothers people.

            Fair. I've personally stopped caring, even if I spent a bunch of time pondering and talking about this topic before Skyward Sword came out. Just kind of a topic that comes and goes in certain respects.

                I'm more of a Mega Man guy, so I can understand the sentiment. There is always some story beats going on in every Mega Man game, but outside of more story-focused titles (eg. Mega Man Zero), you can often just brush it off as blue guy jumping and shooting. Is it necessarily wrong to just focus on the gameplay? Not really. But does it mean some semblance of story doesn't exist? Nah. The writers might have never been in the same room from title to title, but there's still some stuff in there. Just don't worry too much about it when it comes to some weirder details.

      Because the only way they can justify how lazy and half-assed story and continuity has become for the franchise under the new guard is to pretend it never actually played a role in things.

        The dungeons in TotK sucked compared to traditional Zelda dungeons, but they at least looked more like dungeons than BotW's. I liked the overarching mirror puzzle in the Gerudo area.

          It's still just a baby step, that took them 6 years to make. Dungeons should just not be this bad in a series that built it's framework on them from day 1. I get that expecting another Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess type game where half the dungeons in it would easily fit in a Top 10 list is unrealistic, but at least give me a smattering of pretty good ones like Wind Waker or Majora's Mask did.

      While many games connect to other games, you really aren't meant to connect every single Zelda games together into a single unified timeline.

    what sucks about the timeline there hasn't been a new Zelda mainline inbetween BotW and TotK, only remakes or ports. ALBW (and triforce heroes to some extent) were the last titles to get sequels. Four Swords Adventures might see a revivial in the form of Zelda99 for Zelda's 40th anniversary that is if the NSO service is still around. Toon Zelda needs a revisit. I don't think Capcom is interested in remaking Minish Cap or Oracles of X and it would be great to have a third Oracles game that features that unused Ganondorf concept. the NES titles need to be revisited.

    What are the lore implications of Links' other viable love interests having red hair/theming and names that start with M (Malon, Midna, Mipha, Medli if you're into that)

      Implication is that he'd totally bang Ganondorf if he was a hot villainess.

    (almost) every game is so far removed from every other one that the "timeline" literally doesnt matter. oot and mm is the same link. lttp and lbw may be the same world, but literally doesnt even matter because they are so far apart and stand alone so strongly that nothing matters. and even if zelda 1 and 2 are the same link, they didnt even really HAVE story back then, so its a non-issue. the vague similarities and "continuity" is just an excuse to to capitalize on recognizable favorites, doing (mostly) the same things in new/different ways. they often hit the same core story beats and progression too. they feed you slop with a new gimmick, dancing the familiar puppets in front of you. you think its part of something bigger, when it really isnt. its a cheap, tongue in cheek NARRATIVE gimmick (you know, to go along with all of the game play gimmicks each core title has) that even the developers ADMIT TO NOT GIVING A SHIT ABOUT. they deliberately create each new game far enough removed from others so that they have the freedom to do whatever the frick they want. they shoehorn it in somewhere on the autist timeline as an afterthought (again, by their own admission). they put a little bit of effort to not retconning stuff, but they dont care much if they accidentally do. as the years have gone on, they care less and less, because deep down, it was always a cheap gimmicky afterthought.

    you're an autistic slop eater if you care about the "timeline".

    there is objectively more coherent and COHESIVE lore/timeline in any single soulsbourne game. laugh about zanzibart shit all you want, its more meaningful and relevant to the game/lore/timeline than zelda's half baked timeline of reincarnation cycles.

    Anyone who thinks Nintendo actually gives a single iota of a frick about the Zelda ""timeline"" and isn't just making this over-priced toilet paper to milk their cultist consoomer fanbase is a legitimate moron. Can't wait until the next Zelda gets announced and takes a diarrhea shit all over this "new" timeline.

    Zelda lore autists unironically should stop hurting themselves, and just get invested in Souls lore. Nintendo does not give a shit. Everything you've ever wanted with sperging out about secret hidden story stuff exists in From games, and is encouraged. I don't even mean this to be rude. You will probably just have more fun.

    what's up with this happy/sad news shit that keeps being posted

    the only reason i can think of is that telling people how they should feel about the news/article/whatever in the post invites shitposting and increases (you)'s. have we really sunk so low

      it's a meme from japan. crummy twitter accounts and tabloid-like blogs/sites post stuff with headers like 「悲報」(lit. sad/grievous information) trying to create artificial controversy or drama, so imageboard gays and shitposters started copying it to have a laugh. they post it over there like "[Sad News] Snoys blown the frick out". of course it's cringe as frick when some gay canadian does it "ironically"
