      Story and world design: KH1 > KH3 > KH2. Gameplay: KH3 > KH2 > KH1.

      Look in to your heart you all know it’s true

      KH1 has extremely satisfying, grounded combat that expands the further you play to the point you are doing super jumps and shit, but it doesn't go out the ass with them.

      2 is wanna be DMC shit where basically every major encounter requires some gay gimmick QTE button press segment

      Idk what 3 is, probably more of 2s autism.

        This. KH2's combat can get really fun once you get a good wealth of abilities and it's a lot more high flying cuhrazee combat but 1's combat is great just for different reasons.
        And considering 2 is like 80% combat, 20% minigames, it's no surprise the combat gets a lot more attention.

        3 fumbled its execution and didn’t live up to more than a decade’s worth of hype. The pacing is also somehow worse than KH2’s, which is an achievement.

        1 is a great adventure game all around, while 2 is a great from a pure combat standpoint. 3 tries to be a bit of both, but somehow managed to do both elements worse than the previous games.

        Personally, I feel KH1 has better combat overall because it had better encounter design that forces you to actually use a lot more of your toolset. 2 has great mechanics, but the encounter design is very poorly considered since only the FM exclusive content is even remotely challenging.

        Also, having to grind Drive Forms for growth abilities instead of having them
        Be tied to story progression was a horrible idea, and was largely responsible for 2’s garbage level design.

      Kingdom Hearts 1 was an Adventure RPG. It has action combat, but also emphasized backtracking, exploring the worlds more, and solving puzzles. This is something the series lost as it progressed into a pure action game and stopped caring about having the Disney Characters break away from their traditional roles in the movies to have their own interactions with Sora and the Heartless.

    There is nothing wrong with KH3 itself.

    The game had sky-high expectations because they bombarded us with so many trailers to build up the hype and when the game couldn't live up to that, people were let down and shit on it. It looks like they've learned their lesson too cause we haven't heard a peep about KHIV info since the reveal trailer.

And the story in the KH series is growing progressively worse with each entry, like a malignant tumor. Franchise is in need of a reboot.

    1)They had already fricked the story up with countless mobile games at that point so hardly anyone even really knew what was going on in the plot by the time 3 came out.
    2)They used unreal engine instead of their own proprietary engine like they did for the older games, making the third one feel noticeably different to play.
    3)They went absolutely full moron with the amount of reaction commands offered to the player in every single fight.
    4)They did not include any of the classic final fantasy characters that played pretty big roles in both 1 and 2.
    5)Some of the new worlds they added were not as fun or memorable as the old worlds that were replaced such as Halloweentown and Hollow Bastian.

    KH1 is good all around experience with fun worlds and level design, neat gameplay that gives your abilities utility outside battle, and a simple FF story with old school Disney magic. 2 is a cool FF x edgy Hot Topic Disney game with super flashy and streamlined action combat. 3 is just kinda ok. It doesn't wrap up the spin-off games’ plotlines very well at all, the Disney stuff is all modern crap that I’ll admit I have little connection to outside the Pixar stuff, and the gameplay is like a meh watered down version of 2. It was just kinda whatever.

In kinda biased though because I got the chain of memories comics at a school book fair so I knew what was going on there for the most part. I had no idea what was going on with the story by 3 though and I’ve heard they’re actually still making new shitty mobile games after 3, making the problem even worse.

      The story in 1 is pretty simple, eases you into the rules of these universe while always keeping focus on Sora's personal quest for Kairi and Riku. 90% of the script in 2 amounts to "unnamed hidden character in a black robe speaks to another unnamed hidden character in a black coat ominously about things that haven't been explained and probably won't for another 30 hours, if not explained in a different game", Sora basically forgets to ask about Riku or the King in half the worlds. I also remember how the whole reason for the costume changes in some worlds was because they're not supposed to say they're from different worlds. In 2 he downright sings about being from a different world.

        Kung Fu Panda

        And that alone wouldn't be enough to fulfill a quota of worlds for any type of Kingdom Hearts games. I would sooner prefer Nintendo properties as even the niche ones have a charm. I can easily imagine Sora fulfilling the role of Captain N as a spiritual successor.

      They should really get a new main character at this point. Sora is like an adult now and part of what made his character good in the first place was that he was a naive kid thrown into a scary situation but he had a pure heart and refused to give up. Sora should just be an npc character that the new young protagonist meets along his own journey.

      Worse than people hate Disney. Disney is making BAD movies. If you think people SERIOUSLY like trash like Encanto, Onward, Luca, Turning Red, Soul, Raya, etc do think again. And no, even the movies people pretend are modern day "Renaissance" tier are boring trite like Moana, Coco, and Zootopia. That last one is honestly straight up shit only beloved by the young generation of Loser Furries who will catch a disease at some furry convention which they will deserve for being furry freaks.

      The bottom line is simply that Disney is making BAD movies which will become BAD worlds for Kingdom Hearts. And the alternative of relying on Nomura to increase the original content is not a good one because he's a stupid fricking hack in the first place. He's not like other developers. Do you think Capcom's employees for example NEED Marvel vs Capcom to create a successful fighting game? No way. Nomura on the other hand is NOTHING without other people's famous properties. He's been riding the coat tails of Final Fantasy and Disney's classic properties for twenty two years and ongoing. On his own he is a failure.

      Got more respect for Igarashi since he proved he could make a Castlevania game that was NOT Castlevania and sold on its own merits. Nomura is shit. And I hope he somehow fails so badly he's demoted at Square Enix. Kingdom Hearts is better off left discontinued than to continue as it is, with Shit Modern Disney and Shit Nomura and his toadies like Tai Yasue another hack.

I imagine from day 1 SE was aware that having to rely on Disney was going to bite them in the ass sooner or later.

        Moana is the only modern Disney movie that could work in KH despite its quality, Either way it seems that KH4 may pivot to Live Action content like Star Wars and Marvel and that may just be the amount of interest to drive KH4 over the line and get us Verum Rex.
        Once Verum Rex is done we don't need anything else.

        >Got more respect for Igarashi since he proved he could make a Castlevania game that was NOT Castlevania and sold on its own merits.
        I don't know about that. Bloodstained was advertised as just Castlevania without the name, the game is a mix of Symphony and Aria, the game is a non-stop "remember this from CV"?. If Nomura just made a blatant Final Fantasy game with constant callbacks to FF but called it Last Illusion would you really praise him for it? It's still riding on the coattails of someone else's creation, just in a legally different sort of way.

        Yeah honestly with the state of current square and current disney, kingdom hearts is looking pretty dead. The real shame is that both could come back at any time if they just stopped being run by morons because both companies are perfectly salvageable but we know that won’t happen. Square will continue putting out slop and disney will continue going with diversity gay shit as their main appeal until both companies are so controversial that they have to bring in consultants to fix their image which will probably just make things more bland and safe. Disney has enough money to hold out for a long time though so we might still get a real second renaissance

        And yet nobody else started feeling the need to defend other KH's gameplay until the KH2 fans pointed out the strengths of their favored system.
        And then they went so far as to make full conversion mods for other characters in a way they never did for 1 or 3 (3 has characters but nothing like this)

        People care about KH2 in a way they don't care about the rest of the series and I think there is something special about that.

      >KH3 shits on the stories of 1 & 2 by bringing everyone back to life
      That's one of its better points IMO. Well, it would be if they capitalized on it more. Your villain is a crazy scientists that wants to cause an event just to see what'd happen. He can manipulate time, so he has literally infinite time to do what he wants. He WILL win, so the only way to stop him is to beat him after he wins. You can't even kill his goons because they'll just come back.

      I just feel like that point wasn't driven home enough. Sora's like "Oh no! Xehanort's back :D" when he should be like "Even if I win here, it won't matter...".

    Throwing my hat into the ring but Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 are celebrated due to three things...

    1) They were early games in the entire Kingdom Hearts series so Nomura did not have enough time to destroy everything with his shit writing and bloating the cast with shitty characters no one seriously cares about.

    2) They were console games so that means the gameplay was actually decent instead of crippled by Handheld Limitations which the majority of Kingdom Hearts suffers from. And no Osaka has not become perfect by now either, Remind is not an excuse for all their shoddy gameplay from the previous games including regular KH3.

    3) Finally NOSTALGIA. Combine the positives listed above with youthful childhood wonder and nostalgia and that's why Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 are seen as the greatest of all time.

    Not that it matters art the current time anymore. Kingdom Hearts is kind of a damaged brand. Much like Insomniac Spiderman just because Kingdom Hearts 3/Spiderman 2 sold well doesn't mean anything when we know interest in sequels is shrinking with each passing year. Can't wait to hear Square Enix say that Kingdom Hearts 4 had disappointing sales.

      I'm a longtime fan of KH, and I feel I have blood on my hands for the franchise becoming such dogshit. I was there, watching the Deep Dive secret movie on repeat, wanting to know more about the mysterious, original characters that Nomura created. Dual wielding keyblades? Same for the power ranger motherfrickers in the KH2 secret movie, they made me crave more Nomura autism. And the dude sure delivered, but he went too far. KH3 was nothing more than a black hole of unfiltered autism.

        This opening is so dreamlike, elegiac, and beautiful. It’s almost so surreal it’s hard to believe you didn’t just dream it up when recalling it. But that’s what I love about it. It can show imagery that couldn’t be possible if logic was taken into account. It feels so much bigger than itself, and that’s because it is. It’s telling the tale of these tragic but brilliant characters in a poetic lucid dream of an opening.

    Chain of Memories was probably one of the more clever approaches to reusing the worlds, specially since there's not even a pretense of going into the worlds for some moronic reasons, it's just a background change for the battles without NPC's. Although a CV KH sounds pretty fun. I know there's a romhack for Dawn of Sorrow that adds CH's Sora.
    If you ask me, the real solution would've been to make only original worlds but heavily inspired by classic Disney. Hell, the best Disney stuff is public domain stories anyways. SE could've made their own interpretation.

    Nomura strikes me as nose to the grindstone kind of guy. For all we talk about him or KH or how moronic the writing is, he just does whatever he thinks is cool and writes around that. I think it's more that his fans put him on a pedestal rather than he thinking of himself like that.

    Literally everything about KH3 is dogshit, the only slightly redeemable thing is the boss-rush loredump at the last hours of the game, which is still just shitty design in it's own right anyway though. The entire game is a fricking slog just to get to that point and it's not worth it.

    This is coming from someone who teared up on the opening cinematic of KH3 and I even went to a KH orchestra in my city as the game was coming out. I loved some of the music and things in the series despite it's flaws.
