ZU writes: The Legend of Zelda powerfully weaves a dichotomy of good and evil into its plot. Between the virtuous natures of Link and Zelda, and the corrupted evil of Ganon there can be no starker contrast. This develops into an opposition between complete virtue and abject evil. Link goes and saves the day, Hyrule is free from Ganon’s reign of terror, and all is well in the land.
But, as the series has progressed, so has its plot. Subtle touches add significant depth to the plot. In Majora’s Mask there are many things that Link encounters that hardly prompt the player to give them a second thought. Despite this, they reveal the maturity of the Legend of Zelda series far beyond its humble beginnings.
