Why Kingdom Hearts is One of the Best Series of All Time

With the next entry in the series, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance on the 3DS releasing at the end of this month, I think it is a great time to discuss this. So, without further adieu, here is why I will say that the Kingdom Hearts series is one of the best series of all time. (3DS, Disney, Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, PS2)

Asking for Square Enix to make Kingdom Hearts III is like pulling teeth. Do they have to constantly hurt the fans?

At least they're still releasing good quality games that continue the story, answer questions, and give depth.

Are they?
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1241d ago
Yes, they are. Have you played any of the more recent games? They're pretty good and add a lot to the story. Despite being on portables with 1 or no analog sticks they play pretty well too.

A franchise they know sells, they won't give us 3 in terms of closure to the story until there is a huge decline in sales.

Regardless, it is an amazing series in which I hope we see HD releases.

it is an amazingly addicting series. i love all of the hidden metaphors and eastern philosophy in the games, as well as all of the trippy disney stuff that always has hidden meaning behind it. good stuff, genius!

I still can't understand why people like this series so much. I was excited to play the first game (Disney and FF together? Count me in!) but when I played it, it was disappointment after disappointment. It all felt wrong, controls, plot, enemies design, gold and exp "exploding" everywhere after beating an enemy, senseless addition of FF characters, the gummi ship sections...

I was the same. I wanted to like it, but this and FFX put me off JRPGs for years, sadly.

I'm on the same boat.

It doesn't really get better either...I'll tell you this though

The battle system, it's amazing.(in Kh1 at least, in Kh2, meh, in BBS it's also good as well but same story as KH1 in the description below)

The problem is, the enemies are repetitive and don't use the battle system to it's full potential like alot of the boss fights do. Along with this, the game makes you do nothing but fight for the whole time, which makes battles repetitive. If the battles were more spaced out, and more unique which utilized the battle system in full, it would be great.

Music, again top quality. The story, it's actually alright, but it's too cheesy/disney/children for me personally.

FF characters are selling tools, the real FF/Disney cross over is the Main characters. Sora etc is an FF/Disney character/


FF versus Xiii. Why I am excited/ The game is supposed to have old FF exploration and not comprise of battle after battle. There are even airships and cars and ****. Music. Not childish.

For me trhis IS the best series ever. It was my first game as a kid and it changed my life. This is probaly the only reason I play the games I do and in turn, the only reason I come to this site. It introduced me to Final Fantasy and got me into JRPGs. I've loved every single game in the series and things just get better and better. I don't know what I'm going to do when it finally ends in the coming years.

It is a great series. It would be awesome if they used the new Luminous Engine for a Kingdom Hearts game.
iamlegend9999  +   1241d ago
You just not figuring this out? Of course it is.

And one that I'll never get to play since they won't release a collection...
