Well, it was kind of obvious. I don't think anyone thought Nintendo and their games would have become so big back during the NES era.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I mean I don't think the amount of depth and backstory we see in Zelda games was intended back in the day.

It was actually mentioned years ago over and over. That's why they never revealed said timeline until recently. It was the fans who demanded a timeline.

I mean 3 timelines? Creatively done Nintendo, but yeah...yeah...I bet the people behind all of it were pulling their hair out trying to make it work.

I'm guessing most franchises started out like this, I wonder what Kojima has to say on the matter? I'm curious to know whether he made the original Metal Gear for MSX knowing that it would spawn many sequels and prequels if it succeeded...

Well, do not think many buy zelda by the timeline.

so I see no reason for the controversy.

So Oracle of Seasons wasnt planned from the beginning?

In the beginning the concern was to make great games, not look forward to timelines. As rocky as the indusrty was back then you couldn't worry too much about future titles
