Zelda Informer: "The Legend of Zelda series is a franchise that has been dissected on so many levels. Players have drawn and—at times—extrapolated such a wealth of personal meaning from the games.
Coursing through the entire series from the classic installments through to modern incarnations, and from handhelds to home consoles, is a centrally grounded theme. It is the tale of friendship and loneliness, of love and loss.
From Link’s Awakening to A Link Between Worlds, from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask through to Skyward Sword, the Zelda franchise is a story of making friends, keeping friends and losing friends.
In Zelda, our own lives, and the world around us, we cannot escape this crucial theme that is in our nature as humans: companionship."
