Almost every game, when released, had a placement relative to atleast one other game: -AoL is a direct sequel to LoZ, as it said ingame that it took place many years after Link defeated Ganon, it also introduced the idea of multiple Zeldas to the series. -ALttP was confirmed to take place long before the NES titles on the back of its packaging, and even featured the ancestors of Link and Zelda from Zelda I, while also delving into Ganon's backstory, revealing that he was a human(ALttP was even the first game to use the name ''Ganondorf'', even before OoT did) as well as giving us the backstory of the Triforce, and establishing things like the Master Sword and the Sacred Realm -LA was confirmed on its official JP site to take place after Link defeated Ganon in ALttP, with hints such as enemies from ALttP(Like Agahnim) reappearing in LA as dreams. -OoT was confirmed in interviews to take place before ALttP, and was made clear ingame with it expanding on the origins of Ganondorf, the Triforce, and the Sacred Realm. -MM obviously takes place after the child ending of OoT; I think everyone can atleast agree on that. -TWW references the events of OoT heavily throughout the game, and was confirmed by Aonuma to take place long after the adult ending of OoT. -FS was confirmed to be the oldest tale by Aonuma; keep in mind that this was before TMC and SS. -TMC is a prequel to FS, made clear ingame with it establishing the origins of Vaati and the Four Sword. -TP was confirmed by Aonuma to take place long after the child ending of OoT, with TP alluding to the era of OoT with structures such as the now destroyed ToT, for example. -PH is an obvious sequel to TWW, featuring Tetra and referencing TWW in the intro. -ST was confirmed to be 100 years after PH. Niko is still alive as an old man, and Tetra is mentioned, with the Hyrule in ST being a different Hyrule from the one we see in all other games. -SS is obviously a prequel to the entire series, with the origins of the MS, Hyrule Kingdom, and Ganon being expanded on even more. -ALBW alludes to ALttP, and is said by the developers to take place long after it. -TFH is a direct sequel to ALBW, confirmed by Aonuma. -BotW, while having no confirmed placement, most likely takes place long after AoL due to Ganon being devoid of any humanity and having attacked Hyrule multiple times in the past, and taking place in a timeline where the sages from OoT were awakened and remembered in Old Hyrule. Aside from OoX and FSA, every game has had a confirmed placement at release. Everything I said above(except for my placement of BotW) is factual. Why does this misconception exist?
