"Zelda and Zelda By-Products"
 
   So, I think this has probably come up before, but: I've never played a Legend of Zelda game. There's no particular reason for this, I don't have anything against the franchise, I just haven't. (One contributing factor is that I haven't had any Nintendo hardware since... what, the 64, I think.) The adaptation of the source setting that exists in the UF universe is almost entirely Marty Rose's work.

So here's the thing. I've been watching some online videos of Breath of the Wild gameplay, and it looks interesting (albeit not "pay whatever scalpers are charging for a Switch" interesting), but it raises certain questions in my mind. Questions that someone around here can probably answer.

Questions like: do these games all happen in a shared continuity, or alternate versions of the same setting? Or in other words, is this Link's life, eternally and forevermore, or are we seeing a different version of him in each game? Because I assume the storylines are broadly similar from game to game, and if what I've seen of the Breath of the Wild story so far is anything to go by, the poor bastard could use a vacation. Even Commander Shepard only got run off her feet to save the universe three times, and there have been, what, 250 Legend of Zelda games?

And: Is this "Blood Moon" thing a recurring mechanic in the series? I ask about that one mainly because something very similar is the world's most annoying Minecraft mod, and it would make a lot more sense retroactively if it turned out to be a Legend of Zelda reference.

(Also, why is Zelda not the main character if she's in the title?)
