'. Nooooooooo thank you.
i got my PS2 just after the 3 came out. i'd read some stuff on 'Kingdom Hearts' and the premise sounded intriguing; Disney characters crossed with a (final) fantasy RPG? Yes please! ... Then i saw how "edgy" it was with the character designs, dialogue, story, etc. and i immediately shut that shit down. i played for a total of 3 hours, all the while groaning and rolling my eyes. No person should have that many zippers
. i couldn't get through the 'Alice in Wonderland' garbage so i didn't even get very far. i bought it used from Gamestop so i swapped it out for something else the very next day. The sales guy asked why i didn't like it and demeaned me in front of his coworkers and other customers. "Hey guys! Look at this asshat! He doesn't like Kingdom Hearts!
". Just out of curiosity i looked up some of the cutscenes on YouTube and fucking LOL'd
my ass off! i'm so glad i didn't get invested in it because Kingdom Hearts designs are hideously overstated and colorful, the voices are a perfect storm of terrible mixed with perfect, the storyline is hard to follow and the lore is unnecessarily deep and makes no goddam sense. Besides, hardcore
'Kingdom Hearts' fans are some of the cringiest mother-fuckers i've ever met in my life. WORSE than "Five Nights at Edgy's" fans. That's not to say that all
fans of the games are cringe-lords but the worst of them make my skin crawl. How ANYBODY can take the game seriously
as beyond my comprehension, especially given the old-school Disney settings and such. it's like serving chocolate icecream on seafood pizza. All three flavors are great on their own but mixed together makes a cluster-fuck of equally incompatible concepts.
For the record, i LOVE the old Disney cartoons and characters but only a handful of JRPGs (namely FF7). i didn't know exactly what to expect; only that everybody recommended it. i feel like i dodged a bullet.
Addendum: i also spent far too long typing this one single, solitary post. Dammit. My soda's gone flat and my cookies are stale...
