Imprisoning War. Also known as Seal War.
It's about time we abandoned the use of "Imprisoning War". Its true name is Seal War (not even Sealing War), as it's about the Sages' Seal. That's much shorter and smoother than the other thing anyway.
OoT comes after ALttP is the gist of my argument.
Well, that's your preferred placement so you have to defend it somehow. Your points, however, can hardly convince...
Looking at the games overall, ALttP clearly seems "older" than OoT, in terms of technology and so on.
And TMC is the game in which the world feels almost as modern as in TWW, and yet it is the very first game in the timeline - so what?
The Zelda world is an anachronistic world, because Miyamoto loves Western and other developers love the other epochs that have sneaked into some games.
TWW's going with a pirate theme (which no one ever complained about, because of the Flood changing the society) is pure coincidence because they simply wanted the game to feature a sea and sailing - voilą, 17th century here we go.
And how is it that the last games in the timeline, LoZ+AoL, are those that stick most perfectly with the middle ages?
Btw, an often overlooked fact is that ALttP has mailboxes (which of course have their justification, with postmen being around since as early as TMC), while OoT has not.
All of this shows that seeming characteristics of a certain real world epoch have no chance as evidence at all.
Plus, ALttP heavily implies the triforce hasn't been moved before the IW since the gods left it, and ALttP follows straight on from the IW
Actually, this argument here is better used to support OoT > ALttP.
in OoT, the gateway to the SR is well known and locked with a temple, stones, ocarina and a legendary sword.
It's not well known. It's a legend that only the royal family and the eldest Hyruleans know of.
TP proved that that temple is declining after OoT, with the three mechanisms fading away along with it. That's obviously what we end up with in ALttP, too, as the designers did their best to show.
The creation story has always and only been associated with the same time period--the time period in which the Triforce was first disturbed. Otherwise there would be no reason to reference it at all.
Oh how very true!^^
It's one of the reasons why I have ALttP directly after the OoT era.
