By the way, the Wind Waker series is the same as all the others. Read the stories a bit. The timeline basically puts it something like.. Ocarina of Time, (Majora's Mask, which may not really count, but it's there), Link to the Past, Zelda 1, Zelda 2.
Wind Waker is somewhere in the middle, my guess being before Link to the Past, but it's hard to be sure. Nonetheless, the story is there, referring to other games in the series. I didn't put in the Game Boy games because I didn't enjoy them enough to read the stories and figure out where they all fit in.
