God KH is an overwrought piece of dickshit.

I like the first game. But then I got bombarded with:

-Clones
-Memories being moved around at ease
-At least three people who were Sora in some way. Hell, maybe I'M Sora for all I know.
-The heartless were fine. Then we got nobodies, and unversed, and these dream thingies
-The heartless invaded a... database... wut.
-Ven put his heart in Sora so Roxas looks like Ven but he isn't Ven and my brain is leaking out of my hearing holes.
-Oh good, we defeated his heartless. Oh shit, his nobody is still alive. Oh good, we defeated that too... what the hell do you mean that restored him completely? FFFUUUHHHH--
-The beach between light and dark? Is it... metaphorical?
-Body takeover
-The journal is... alive
-The journal just got... digitized?
-You know what, just screw Coded. That's what ultimately killed this series for me. Let's play an entire game to figure out something I already know.
-Seriously, any time they involved computers, I just shook my head.

I still enjoy the combat, to be honest, but god, the story, and all the convoluted crap in it. The charm this series started with almost ten years ago is lost to me.

I think you hit the nail on the head - I still enjoy the combat, but the story is just too weird, and has lost all appeal as a result.

I think what's really baffling is how juvenile products like these affect people over the age of 25. We're way, way too entertained by bright, shiny colours and childlike innocence.

Buncha pedophiles.

For me, the draw of the games has always just been the novelty of running around familiar Disney worlds. That and the gameplay is pretty solid. I've never cared the least bit about the story- takes itself way too seriously for its own good.

Yeah, I hate the melodrama of the end game parts, they DO take themselves to seriously.  But it is wonderful to walk in a Disney setting.

Much of this thread has mentioned why I never got into Kingdom Hearts. The combat is fun, sure, and I enjoy some of the Disney worlds I see in screens. But the KH original characters and story don't appeal to me whatsoever. Always sounded like a bunch of convoluted bullshit after KH1.

If I can ignore the fact I'm controlling a very weird pre-teenager who got a growth spurt in a year, I'll be fine. I'd rather control Roxas.

I know this was (probably) a joke, but consider how older the series is. Many people may well have gotten in at 15 and are now 25; you'd even have plenty of 10 year olds who are 20 now if 15 seems too high for you.
