The creator of Gravity Falls called Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts a cynical abomination that proves God doesn't exist.
How over the top can you get Gravity Falls is so f***** overrated...there, I said it.
No he is an imbecile.
He's actually quite a clever and creative bloke, as well as a good voice actor.
"It’s certainly not the convoluted and poorly written story that keeps us coming back" Wrong. The story is definitely why people keep going back as well as for the characters. "advertising Disney flicks" KH3 definitely felt like a Disney advert a lot of the time. Strange criticism from Alex Hirsch but if he doesn't like the mashup then fair enough. Tastes differ but I couldn't disagree more. I love the crossover.
I agree that the story was convoluted....as it's always been. Major problem was they have so many characters they just were trying to resolve, and you go through the whole game doing the Disney stuff, you see what Rikku and Sora are doing, but a lot of they spend time on Disney story, which we already know if we watched the movies, and then cram as much resolution as possible into the final level. That said, It is the story that keeps people coming back, because it's a decent and fun story, despite it's rather dark undertones. Don't really agree that it advertises Disney flicks though. Although, I enjoyed the Tangled stuff, so may want to watch that because Repunzel was pretty cool.
WHat is it about athiests constantly trying to prove god doesn't exist?
Dude, he's just being purposefully over-the-top in his brief rant about how much he hates Kingdom Hearts.
look, i adore gravity falls... but wth? is he on drugs? criticism is good, but this is just bullshit
"It’s a superficially pretty series that is only popular because it plays off our nostalgia for Disney and childhood." Obviously. So do "Cuphead" and "Disney Afternoon Collection". How is that a bad thing and how does that make it a 'cynical abomination'?
You're right but I wish it could be a good game i.e. have a good sensical story and be nostalgic
Story be damned. With no SE characters to cross with is a big no no, on what the foundations of thus series has laid out.
TFW you don't know what Gravity Falls is.
This author should do research on the relationship between Square Enix and Disney before judging. Kingdom Hearts came to being because Squaresoft already wanted to make a new kind of game and they approached Disney for collaboration. Disney did not commission the project as an advertisement. In fact Disney basically lets Square Enix do its own thing with Kingdom Hearts, down to choosing the worlds they make. For example the Pirates 3 world was chosen specifically because the team wanted to take on the challenge of adapting a live action movie.
