I remember once upon a time, I really used to dig this series, until the massive amount of retcon work started happening. I hated the mechanics of Chain of Memories, but the story elements on both ends I thought were really cool and led into KH2 quite nicely. Coded and 358/2 Days, I thought, were largely pointless and freaking DULL as hell. Birth By Sleep was a very worthwhile game, for a prequel, and thus far the only "side story" game that I've been able to enjoy, enough that I'm willing to give 3D a chance. I hope it's good. Honestly, though, without some serious news about KH3 coming out soon, I don't think I'll be sticking around with this series much longer.
