    I still argue that LA has a better narrative. It's more akin to Metroid in that it doesn't need consistent dialogue. Plus, the owl makes a good ominous character there. Owl statues solidify it further.

    And canon is definitely important if you want anyone to take your game's story seriously. That timeline is one of the worst things done to the Zelda series and I'll be damned if the upcoming Zelda games are devoted to tying that catastrophe together with them.

    I like blaming MM's flaws on shorter dev time.

    It does not matter. It's more connected by lore then by time. And we all know time is flexible in LoZ.

    I see it as a story told through a game and not just a game in itself. Short dev time or not it's still a master piece

    That lore (or lack thereof) is exactly a significant part of what holds it back. Recycled characters are antithetical to effective lore. Moreso in a game that focuses on these characters and their problems. Who are they? Are they the same guys? Twins, perhaps? Parallel dimension?

    For the record, I don't consider any Zelda a masterpiece. Great games, but they're no Shakespeare among the gaming world.

    I don't get what your talking about. The connections through symbols is what links (no pun intended) all the games together. All the Zelda's and Link's are only symbols. They don't even share the same personality. It's that lore that makes the series legendary. It's more then just the same type of save the princess story, it's story is spread through time. A story of gods and men. And like Baccano!!, it's not told in a linear fashion.

    Shakespeare is only great because of how it influenced society and Zelda is one of the most influential video games ever. But not all masterpieces are made that way. Why I view MM as a masterpiece is they way they go about telling the story and that story are the stories of everyone you meet.

    Nobody plays Zelda for the lore. It's pretty craptastic. Ocarina at least bothered to expand on the little bit of lore there was. MM didn't care for it at all. Zelda's puzzles, dungeons, and world are its core.

    Best way to explain it is by expanding your horizons. For every game like Xenogears, there's a plethora of CoD's and Maddens, but the struggle is completely worth it.

    The 3 day cycle is great, storytelling is not.
