We cannot think of modern society without also thinking of video games. And we cannot think of video games without thinking of history either. Games that deal with history are sold in ever-increasing numbers, striving to create increasingly lively images of things past. For the science of history, this means that the presentation of historical content in such games has to be questioned, as well as the conceptions of history they embody. How do games create the feeling that they portray a past acceptable to their players? Do these popular representations of history intersect with academic narratives, or not? While a considerable body of work on similar questions already exists, both for medieval history as well as for those games dealing with the 20th century, early modernity has not yet been treated in this context. As many games draw their imagery – perhaps their success, too? – from the years between 1450 and 1815, it is to their understanding that this volume is dedicated. The contributions encompass a wide range of subjects and games, from Age of Empires to Assassin’s Creed, from Critical Discourse Analysis to Ludology. One aim unites them, namely an understanding of what happens when video games encounter early modernity.

The growth in popularity and complexity of video games has spurred new interest in how games are developed and in the research and technology behind them. David Heineman brings together some of the most iconic, influential, and interesting voices from across the gaming industry and asks them to weigh in on the past, present, and future of video games. Among them are legendary game designers Nolan Bushnell (Pong) and Eugene Jarvis (Defender), who talk about their history of innovations from the earliest days of the video game industry through to the present; contemporary trailblazers Kellee Santiago (Journey) and Casey Hudson (Mass Effect), who discuss contemporary relationships between those who create games and those who play them; and scholars Ian Bogost (How to Do Things With Videogames) and Edward Castronova (Exodus to the Virtual World), who discuss how to research and write about games in ways that engage a range of audiences. These experts and others offer fascinating perspectives on video games, game studies, gaming culture, and the game industry more broadly.

Video games are considered by many to be just entertainment-essentially void of skillful, artistic intervention. But as any gamer knows, there's incredible technical and graphic talent behind even a flickering Gameboy screen. You may have never heard Shigeru Miyamoto's name, but you've probably spent many a lazy afternoon absorbed in his work. Joining Nintendo as a video game designer in the late 1970s, Miyamoto created the powerhouse franchises Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong-games so ubiquitous that Miyamoto was named one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People in 2007. Combining critical essays with interviews, bibliographies, and striking visuals, Shigeru Miyamoto unveils the artist behind thousands of glowing gaming screens, tracing out his design decisions, aesthetic preferences, and the material conditions that shaped his work. With this incredible (and incredibly unknown) figure, series editors Jennifer DeWinter and Carly Kocurek launch the Influential Video Game Designers series, at last giving these artists the recognition they deserve.

An ordering of the Zelda games as their events occur within the fictional universe. This official chronology was revealed in detail INTRODUCTION I just completed all 16 Legend of Zelda games, which were created over a span of 25 years, in about a month. I took notes during my play through of all of these games, noting important lines of dialogue, plot points, characters, locations, etc. The goal of this was to create an overall timeline of all the major events and games in the series. Interestingly enough, shortly after embarking on this quest, Nintendo released an official artbook, the Hyrule Historia (Japanese only). In this book, they actually reveal the secreted timeline. So, my work was basically done. However, I plan to go much more in depth than the book did, but sway my analysis towards the timeline they provide (which does indeed seem legit). Before I start my timeline/analysis, I think I should point out two important ideas. The first is that these are Japanese games. That is, these games were developed in Japan first, and then translated/localized for the US and other territories. This means that there is the possibility of certain things being lost in translation, of character or town names to change, major dialogue changes, etc, which may impact the exactness of my analysis. The second issue is with the concept of retroactive continuity(retcon), meaning that after facts have been established, designers can retroactively change the truth and alter the series' universe. After playing all the games, this has easily occurred many times, so you may see me point out some of these seemingly contradictory facts, although I'll try to meld them together taking this concept into consideration. Obviously, not everything was planned from the beginning, and over the course of 25 years, 16 games, and many different designers, developers, and writers, not everything will mesh together perfectly as the story and universe evolved and expanded. With that being said, I will now attempt to layout the overall timeline of the Zelda universe, chronologically, as easily as I can, with as much detail as possible and as little conjecture as needed. I will be basing my information primarily from the games' story and manuals only, with a little bit thrown in from developer commentary, Hyrule Historia, and other similar official sources for support. I will annotate all of my facts, listing where they come from, and any speculation and theorizing from my part will be clearly evident and not stated as fact. I should also note that I'm focusing this essay on Hyrule and its history, so I won't delve deeply into the lore of other areas, such as Termina, Holodrum, etc, but I will of course discuss the games in which those settings are involved and how they affect the timeline. And of course, SPOILER ALERT. I will be spoiling EVERY Zelda game ever made and it might come at times you don't expect it. Sorry.
