It's been announced the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III will release next year. Fans who grew up with the series are elated, but Gazette gaming columnist Jake Magee doesn't get the craze.
I'm in the same boat. I tried the original game for a few hours many years ago, and it didn't do anything for me. I assumed it was because I never had any interest in or attachment to Disney characters. I'd like to give it another try though one of these days, and see if I can learn what all of the fuss is about.
If you don't like action rpgs or Disney then don't play it because your opinion won't change. Trying to save you money
I don't understand why people think that playing with kids disney characters is fun in an rpg..
I'm playing kingdom hearts 1 for the first time and am onto the 3rd world/boss now. The beginning is always slow but it picks up. If you don't like action rpgs, square, or Disney then it's not for you. I'm not understanding why certain people have to say they don't get the craze if they never did care for the composition of the game. Obviously they wouldn't like it.... I've played a bunch of kh2 but am trying to catch up for kh3's release and that also means I need to buy kh2.8 And from the little I've seen of kh3's, overall gameplay and controls look indefinitely improved. So if you're trying these older games you have to understand not everything is going to be perfect by today's standards but they're still fun games with lots of cutscenes that you can skip if that's your thing. Just get off the first area and the first world where you experience different Disney world, only takes 2 hours max, even if you do more than you need in the opening area.
Combat in fragmentary passage is the best in the series imo so if KH3 is the same I'm delighted!
So the author doesn't get the craze? Who cares? Don't understand? Were they supposed to automatically like every single series that exist within gaming?
I played KH1 when it came out on PS2 back in the day, but I wasn't a tremendous fan of it back then for some reason or another (I got the game a few months late and was really big into the Tales of games back then). KH2 completely changed my opinion of the franchise, however, as was something I played through three or four times- I loved it. Form changes were the beeeeest. Then I played the various spin offs, the card game one, the one with Roxas that was mission-based and I recall absolutely none of its story because it was too slowly drip-fed, the one on the PSP that I really enjoyed, and the 3DS one too. Then I played a few of them again on the PS3- good times. I still don't know what the hell is happening in the story. I think that basically every bad guy is Xehanort, who used to be Ansem, except he wasn't actually Ansem, he was Xehanort. Eh, hell with it, I'll read the wiki again before KHIII comes out, I guess.
What's there to get? It's either you like it or you don't. There's a pretty hardcore fan base behind it and like any game with a fan base they generate a lot of hype for the next entry in a franchise they love. If you don't get it then walk away. I don't see the poInt in questioning the craze. What are you into? I'm sure someone doesn't understand why you like what you like. It's not freaking rocket science or something to ponder about exestentially.
Some people like Kingdom Hearts, others will not. Opinions, how do they work?
I never did either, just my opinion but mixing final fantasy and disney never really made any sense. Lots of people surely thought otherwise though
It is such a crazy mix but for me it worked like a charm. Most of it is Disney anyway with cameos from final fantasy characters more than anything. There wasn't been one final fantasy world so far.
It's the marvel vs capcom for final fantasy nerds. I'm not interested but I have a few friends that are into KH lol. Grown ass men super hyped about a Disney crossover. It's funny but people people like crossovers, it's not complicated.
Disney is for everyone, not just kids ;)
I know it's just funny how hyped they are about it.
Disney is certainly not for everyone, I never liked Disney characters even as a kid. It all just comes across as slightly sinister.
Well, I don't mean everyone likes it. I mean it's not just for kids. But if you wanna talk about sinister, there's a hidden cartoon at the end of Dunno during the credits where these strange black demon things were trying to cook the 3 pigs. Had no idea it existed and I woke up with that on the tv. Scared the shit out of me 😂
Yeah I think some of us get more hyped for Disney than kids do! 😂 No regrets though 😁
right there with you! haha
I'm not a ff nerd and I bet there's something mentally questionable about you, but of course there can't be because you're a grown ass man. Any one of your bad habits would have me questioning your character, especially if you're a grown ass man. Hypocrite of the month, guaranteed
Why so butthurt lol? You took that mad personal. Mentally questionable? I'm not questioning my friends character and I'm not calling their hype a "bad habit". I said it's funny that grown ass men are stupid hyped to the point of obsession for game with kid characters. Like nin said, he's more hyped than kids are. I find that funny, no more, no less. Relax doogie.
Not butthurt, simply calling out what I see. Your counter to my reply is invalid as you posted that before nin could comment on your post. I couldnt care less what nin is obsessed with, your comment generalized pretty much any FF or kh fan. If you want to speak about grown ass men just make sure you have no faults. Again, Im not buttmad, don't be so quick to judge
What you saw was wrong. You're obviously butthurt and took my comment personal. Your reply to my post is invalid because what you said has little to do with what I said. I didn't counter your irrelevant post, I clarified. No my comment didn't generalize anyone. I was talking about MY FRIENDS. People you would probably consider thugs that are obsessed with kingdom hearts. I think it's hilarious, that's all. My comment had nothing to do with you, you got anal for absolutely no reason lol. Everybody has faults, I'm not saying that them liking kingdom hearts is a "fault". You make no sense whatsoever. I'm not judging you, I'm judging your post. Which reeks of butthurt.
There is a craze?
People are hyped for KH3 because we've been waiting for this game since KH2 which came out in 2005.
Friend found KH2 on a wet day on the street around the time it came out, he gave it to me which I still find odd cause he had a PS2 too! Well, I played it, loved it. Before it, I would never give it a second look.
That's how most Xbox owners are with exclusives in gemeral, they don't know what they're missing
Looks like a hack and slash game with disney kids stuff thrown in
I like Disney films and Square but even when the first KH game came out it felt too kiddie for me and now we're several years in the future it's even more so. Don't get me wrong I'm not looking down on adults who are into it as like I say I don't mind watching Disney films and kids tv with my little girl, I just don't feel any desire to play a game in that genre.
I like Kingdom Hearts , they aren't my favorite franchise but they are well made action rpgs and I like rpgs of all types. This like all games isnt for everyone, what is?
I also don't get the LoZ craze. It's simply just people with different preferences.
Final Fantasy meets Disney Need I say more?
Except it was never like FF.
Kingdom Hearts takes various elements from Final Fantasy
I never got the Witcher craze but it didn't really change the levels of success that series got.
Awesome combat, playing in famous Disney worlds, best animations in gaming, great soundtrack... How could you not get the craze?
Holy sh** these articles are just bad.
it's maybe just not for you? There's a lot of games I don't understand. Didn't need an article to explain it.
My interest in the series was seeing Disney characters in a video game, the bonus was seeing Final fantasy characters. Overall I never expected the game to be really fun and the complicated plot to keep me on the edge of my seat.
