Let me put it this way. Ten years ago I couldn't wait to play Kingdom Hearts 3. Now I'm not planning on even getting it. I also wanted to really play The Last Guardian when it was first announced, but I still haven't tried it yet. There is a window of enthusiasm for sequals and remakes and so forth. You can't announce something and then release it like 8-10 years later. That is the kind of treatment that I am expecting from FFVII Remake, though.

Kingdom Hearts 3 wasn't announced 10 years ago.

Kingdom Hearts 2 was actually released 12 years ago.  Considering how successful the first two games were, I anticipated a sequel.  And lo and behold we are finally getting one.  But 12 years between games is just too long.

There have been several Kingdom Hearts game since KH2 and all of them are mainline.

Let me ask this.  If someone wanted to own all of these "mainline" games on the day they first released, then how many consoles would they have to own?  (i.e. only count original releases and not remixes and such.)

And why only original releases? That's irrelevant nowadays,  they can now be played on the ps4.

Do you want to have a conversation about this or not?  We are talking about all of the time that passed between Kingdom Hearts 2 and 3.  We aren't talking nowadays.  We are talking about what happened during those 13 years between 2006 and and 2019.

After FF13 I lost hope on FF franchise. I'll buy 7 because I know it was a great game, but I am not paying for episodic releases. I'll buy the GOTY edition with all the content.



My hype died when I saw the gameplay. It's just not what I wanted from an FF7 remake. I wanted it to be basically the same game but with a few modern tweaks. I wanted it to have the same cartoony anime art style the original had instead of the realistic character models they're going with.

In other words, I wanted them to create the game we remember it being, not the game that it actually was.  But it looks like they're completely changing everything, and I'm sure it'll be a good game, but it won't be the FF7 I remember.

Well, if you really wanted to play another home console-quality KH game after KH2 released, you could have at least tried out Birth by Sleep, which came out in 2010. Yes, you had to get a PSP (but even if KH3 had released during the 7th gen, you still would've had to get a PS3 to play it, so it's basically the same situation), but you could have got an experience practically in the same level as KH1 and KH2 without having to wait 13 years. Also, in 2008 (only 2 years after KH2), we got Chain of Memories on PS2, so you didn't have to get another console.
