I always thought that Buzzfeed was just good for 27 pictures of cats that look like US Presidents or something (and the occassional brilliant long form feature, to be fair) but they have created a pretty cool series of GIFs explaining the impenetrable (and silly) Zelda timeline and I actually almost found it useful!
I say 'almost' because, despite being a huge fan of the Zelda series, I literally couldn't care less about the timeline and I'm not really that sure why people treat the subject with such passion. I've always just played Zelda games as like a retelling of the same story in a different context, with different variations on the same themes. I've never felt like there needed to be some sort of canon timeline. Maybe it's just me.
In fact, when it's all laid out, as it is here, so cleanly it becomes apparent just how little sense it all really makes. And how unimportant it is in the grand scheme of things.
Head to Buzzfeed to watch the entire thing!
