What’s the Best Order to Play Kingdom Hearts?

Hardcore Gamer: Kingdom Hearts is no longer a fractured franchise. In the past, to enjoy the full story of the franchise required a PS2, Nintendo DS, PSP and Nintendo 3DS. That is no longer the case thanks to the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix. Now you can play every single Kingdom Hearts game on PS4 in the lead-up to Kingdom Hearts III. For players new to the franchise, this raises quite the conundrum, what order should they play the games?

In order that they released. Never play a game in order of story for 2 reasons.

1.) You'll have to deal with the fluctuating gameplay mechanics. (which admittedly you'll have to deal with in KH regardless) and-

2.) Because the flow of story is important. You might understand the story better playing in order of timeline, but it'll be more enjoyable if you play them in the order they released.

Completely agree with you. Each entry adds to the story, by building on what came before. So I think they should be played in the order in which they released. Gameplay mechanics changing is a great point that you mention. Definitely the way to play them.

Not sure how I didn't know this before, but Days and Coded being turned into movies instead of letting us play the games ourselves really sucks.

Just ordered the collection and haven't played KH before. So is the best order 1,2 then the backstories?
