    I think I prefer the pre-Ocarina visions of Hyrule fleshed out in the various comics and, yes, even that terrible cartoon that we all loved so much as children.

    I wouldn’t object to this if it put to rest the obviously nonsensical and increasingly absurd myth (kept alive by Nintendo) that there’s only one Zelda story and one version of the characters and the various games are selected parts of a master timeline kept under Miyamoto’s mattress.

    Unfortunately, the opposite is likely to be the case.
