I Don’t Know the Story of Kingdom Hearts and at This Point I’m Too Afraid to Ask

My family was originally a Nintendo family, and when the Xbox 360 arrived we became an Xbox family. At no point did we cross over, however, into PlayStation territory. While this meant we were able to play halo with huge house parties, it also meant that we missed out on games like Spyro and Crash and Final Fantasy and, by extension, Kingdom Hearts. The strange 3D mixture of jrpg and Disney characters has always been alluring, but the series is almost 20 years old and I’ve never played- or even watched someone play- the first or second kingdom hearts, and now I feel like I’m missing out on a major cultural milestone of gaming for not playing or watching the 3rd one. I also have no clue what it’s even about aside from there being some great evil that you have to team up with mickey mouse to defeat, and that people seem to love buying keyblades at conventions. I don’t know if know I’m just too late to start trying to get into it, but I also don’t know if I should by extension try to avoid it. As a self-proclaimed gamer, it’s almost as if my identity is at stake because I wasn’t exposed to this at a younger age when it was possible for everyone else.

One thought on “I Don’t Know the Story of Kingdom Hearts and at This Point I’m Too Afraid to Ask”

  1. I’m in the same boat. I didn’t become a Big Sony Boy until I got my PS4 in literally 2017. I started to play the first one when I first got my PS4, and it seemed entertaining, but not really enough to hold my attention for very long. But eventually I think I’ll try to go back and try to get into them because I love the concept.
