The Legend of Zelda Formula

(click to enlarge)

Though on the surface, The Legend of Zelda series would seem to be one of the most creative in all of video gaming, there are certain “threads” that run through all of the games that when all lined up, seem like a bit of a formula.

This handy chart above shows a number of different categories that you’ll see in almost every game, including a bunch of series staples. But even if it does follow a set path, that doesn’t make the games any less incredible. I’m seriously thinking about buying a Wii just so I can play Skyward Sword.
