** One of the best video game series of all time! At least, in my opinion. Out of all of the games, ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' deserves special mention. The gameplay is so wonderfully unique that I still have not found another game like it. It might seem like a normal hack-and-slash game at first, but it is so much more than that. The glorious combat and different combos, incredible mobility, the combination of combos with mobility, amazing enemy staggering while feeling the weight of the keyblade, revenge value, magic and items shortcut, fun and challenging bosses, and the vibrant worlds make the gameplay absolutely amazing. Combine that with the great story and characters, and this is truly a game to behold. I know some fans think that the story is silly, inconsistent, and whatnot, but in actuality, the story has still remained internally consistent, and I love how the games continue to build upon one another for one of the best Myth Arcs I have ever seen in my life. I love this series!

** Of special note, I have to quote ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'' when they mentioned the social boss battles. Hopefully they'll make the rest of the game companies sit up and take notice that wittling away at a life bar isn't the only way to have a satisfying, pulse pounding confrontation with an antagonist.

* Christ on toast, ''VideoGame/LiveALive''. I had to emulate it, of course, and after spending some time with it, I don't regret it at all. It's just ''adorable''. The first scenario I played, the prehistoric one, was very innovative in conveying the story without dialog. I am only about halfway through the game, but I think this is one of the most fun games I've played in a while. They don't make 'em like this anymore. The game is like a hybrid of a more-functioning ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'' and a less-overexposed ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. If you don't have any moral qualms about emulating older games(and let's face it, who does?), then run, don't walk to your nearest computer and get the fan translated ROM from one of those less skeevy emulator sites (I suggest Cool [[UsefulNotes/ReadOnlyMemory ROM]]s) to get your hands on ''VideoGame/LiveALive''!

** Not to sound shallow, but the production values are what seals the deal for me with both games. The visuals are just amazing. The scenery makes me wish I were really there. And the soundtracks are just wonderful. Together, these two aspects create a world you never want to leave.

** As a 2000's-born troper, I can consider myself blessed that I got the opportunity to play ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. I was so impressed with the plot that I now want to become a plot writer for video games in general! I pretty much owe almost all my appreciation for old games (especially JRPGs!) to this game (and maybe {{ChronoTrigger}}, too.).

** I'm not exaggerating when I say that Kingdom Hearts may be the one thing that helped me the most develop as a person. Before I left for college, I was in a serious funk, not knowing really who I was. My dorm's lounge had a PS2 bolted to the floor, and after watching some friends play [=KH2=], I thought I'd give it a try. I ''LOVED'' it. By the time I had finished, I was no longer ashamed of my love of Disney or video games. Before, I was very "closeted" about my hobbies and my nostalgia, but playing [=KH2=], with my friends watching and cheering me on, made me much more open about them and ProudToBeAGeek.

** ''Chrono Trigger'' is basically a nerd's wet dream come true. Featuring Akira Toriyama (Best known for Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump) as the character designer and artist, Yuji Horii (Dragon Quest) and Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy) as designers, and Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogear, Mario Party) and Nobou Uematsu (Final Fantasy) as composers, that alone should convince any reader to buy this game straight onto their PSP or DS or iOS or [=PS3=] or Wii or even (My favorite of all) the SNES off of Amazon. Though be warning the PS1/3/P versions have slow loading times. Also, if you hear the terms "New game+" or "multiple endings" and don't immediately think of this game, then you obviously haven't played it.

* ''{{Terranigma}}'' is a truly amazing game that sadly gets far too little recognition. The story is great, the gameplay is enormously fun, the music is excellent, and it has possibly the most touching BittersweetEnding of any game out there.

* ''KingdomHearts'' has its flaws, like everything else. I won't deny that- heck, even I'm getting frustrated with Creator/SquareEnix for not being consistent with the canon. But the series has still been fun to play for me, and even though the retcons get irritating and the Nobodies needed to be explained better I even enjoy the story. It's Disney without being overly kiddy (definitely a dose of sugar and light, yes, but not overly dumbed down or TastesLikeDiabetes) and that makes my inner child {{squee}}.

** The thing is, Disney's brand of feel-good ''isn't'' the TastesLikeDiabetes kind, really, and the fact that Mickey Mouse works so well as a BadassLongcoat proves it. The ''KingdomHearts'' franchise reminds us all of why we like Disney movies in the first place.

** I also love the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games. The new games coming out might be iffy (due to Square messing up canon) but the first ''KingdomHearts'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'', and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' are pretty much the most amazing games ever made! They combine the Disney of my childhood with stuff I'm into now almost perfectly. Major awesomeness!

**** Nah, the original KingdomHearts will always be the best KH game of all time for me. Everyone knows that the FirstInstallmentWins.

** I just loved the magic-based puzzles in Kingdom Hearts(the first), though many were optional they were fun to find and only required common sense to complete(like using thunder on the broken wire in Traverse Town, or casting stop on the Big Ben to halt Phantom's doom spell). And magic was so well detailed in a subtle way, like using it on the fireplace in Cid's accessory shop(while the fireplace didn't actually affect anything and wasn't even a puzzle it could still be lit by fire or put out by blizzard and the smoke stack would either release smoke when you went outside or not accordingly).
