[RIP PS2] In Simpler Days: Kingdom Hearts

Who would have predicted the brilliance of infusing a Japanese role-playing game with Disney characters? Well, Squaresoft did, and the product is still one of my favorite games from the days of the PlayStation 2. Soon, an entire series would emerge only getting more complicated with every entry, but in the beginning, things were much simpler, yet still pretty crazy. When games like Final Fantasy X and Guilty Gear X2 filled my library, I had not expected that I would soon be traversing different worlds alongside a giant anthropomorphic duck and horrifying dog creature.

Nevertheless, one game rocked our world with intense nostalgia and insane hair as one of the greatest action role-playing games on the PS2 and possibly ever: Kingdom Hearts. (3DS, Dev, Industry, Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 3, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, Next-Gen, PS2, Retro, Squaresoft)

This game influenced my life so much. I probably wouldn't be listening to the music I do, play the games I do now, watch the same movies, tv, etc. if I never got this game and my PS2 for that Christmas 10 or so years ago.
