I was maybe 13 or 14 when the 1st kingdom Hearts came out. I was actually quite excited for it, I loved Japanese RPGs and had some Disney films I loved as a kid. I had forgetton why, but I only played the game 8 hours or so before I set it down never to play again.
Now, in 2019 as a father of a 8, 6 and 1 year old I decided to give KH3 a go. No doubt my 6 and 8 year old enjoy watching me play (or play themselves since 92% of combat is mashing the X button) and that makes it worth the purchase to me. Being able to play a game with my little girls intently watching everything that happens. BUT. I finally reminded me of why I never bother to finish the original on PS2.
I fooking hate Goofy and Donald. They both are very annoying to listen to, and in their original cartoons were the comic relief. Definitely not the material to lead a high fantasy game. I set down KH1 when I realized I was stuck with them as young teenager(I truly had forgotten why I drop it until playing KH3). I though it would be essentially Mario RPG but with Final Fantasy themes and Disney characters thrown in, it could have been cool. I pictured acquiring party members from Disney movies and being able to swap them in and out based on what I felt. But no. It is fooking Donald and Goofy. I am personally quite let down that they still insist on them being the key Disney characters in the game and playing KH3 has let this sink in more.Last edited by bigjon - on 15 February 2019
