Kh 3 finally added what it was missing from kh2. Sweet skateboard tricks
Alternating between playing Castlevania and finishing up all the Challenge Missions. Did the SP Challenges for the Antlion and even Riku tonight so I'm pretty proud.
Also, want to make this clear: Keyblades are not a Super Saiyan transformation. Getting one is not a force multiplier.
I'm sorry, we're using JK Rowling as a standard for complex, consistent worldbuilding?
I mean, you'd be hard pressed not to look good on that front if it's Tetsuya Nomura you're being compared to.
Hey, at least 4/7 of Nomura's stories aren't solved by convenient asspulls.
It's been over a decade since I've read Harry Potter but I don't think during the course of the series she tore out the pieces of her current narrative because it'd be cooler that way.
I know that now she posts weird shit that got meme'd for a hot minute.
I'm genuinely unable to think of a Nomura story that hasn't been in some way solved by an Ass Pull. I'm not sure that I can even think of one that isn't premised on an Ass Pull.
At least in Harry Potter, you can discernibly point to specific asspulls happening. In Kingdom Hearts, arguably the entire narrative is just a series of asspulls strung together.

Took down SP Challenge Saix. The time limit is awful but I eventually took him down with three Sigils!
I'm not sure that I can even think of one that isn't premised on an Ass Pull. Then I'm not sure you know what asspull means.
You also couldn’t remember why Braig attacked Terra and Xehanort so your memory’s not perfect.

I praise Kingdom Hearts 1 all the time but other than the metaphorical reason I never understood why at the end light shines out the Door to Darkness and obliterates Ansem. Like what's the mechanical reason it happened, if there's a need for an explanation (and this is KH so of course there's one).
Kingdom Hearts resides there is why.
Because Kingdom Hearts is light. With a capital L.
There is light in the darkness. Metaphorically and literally.
Oh phew, for a second I thought Kingdom Hearts 1 had a flaw or something.
no its perfect
Just like Dream Drop Distance!
Bounces around the stage and has my combos interrupted
KH does have flaws.
Its Platforming is outdated, as is its simplistic gameplay.
Its bosses on the whole are also rather boring, IMO. Only the final boss, Chernabog and the optional bosses stand out for me.
All of those are great because they are properly contextualized. The strict platforming and Sora's amateur Keyblade swinging helps sell him as a character instead of Sora the Magical Anime Blender from KHII.
...You actually said that for real.
Yeah, trying to justify platforming with plot doesn't work because the story itself doesn't.
Thats just you projecting that opinion onto the gameplay.
KH 3 does Platforming much better, so much so going back to KH 1's makes me even more likely to not go back to it.
The flaws of KH 1 have always added to it's charm. It's one of the few times the game play matched the character.
I can still give it a play through without missing a beat.
Gameplay that fits the character is better than gameplay that's mechanically fun. KHII sacrificed everything good about the original game in order to polish the gameplay.
Sora is a lot more satisfying to control to me in KH thanks to his big, wide movements, his stumpy jump arc, and the level of interaction with the environment than Triangle Spam: The Game.
No, he’s giving his opinion on the gameplay, learn the difference.

Like people here have played Ico right?
That game is all about weight of movement. The paced running speed, Ico's clumsy swings with a stick, having to physically press a button to hold Yorda's hand. It is so immersive, and I think KH really nails that aspect of defining Sora as a character through gameplay. His animations are subtly perfect and then you get into combat where he swings his mythical sword like a drunk with a bat because he's a little kid on an adventure that's even bigger than his shoes.
KHII made him too traditionally cool.
