VGC Day 28: What is your favorite game series?

Finally, a post that I have wanted to write for ages! And one game that has yet to get its own Saturday Suggestion. One of my all time favorite game series is Kingdom Hearts. I fell head over heels for the first game. It’s been a bit of an obsession since then.

An action RPG has done the impossible: marrying Disney and Final Fantasy. Being a huge Disney fan, and just getting my feet wet with Final Fantasy, I was super interested in picking up this game. The tale of Kingdom Hearts is a wholesome one, though a bit complicated. Simply put, it’s the “story of Light overcoming Darkness with the power of Friendship.”

The first game follows Sora, a keyblade wielder, Donald, and Goofy as they travel to Disney worlds to stop the Heartless invasion by sealing each world’s keyhole. While the controls are a bit wonky and the story is a little hard to follow at first, I quickly got the hang of it and finished the game with tears in my eyes. I knew there would be a sequel so I just held in there as best as I could (because for real that ending was heart breaking but powerful and I just LOVED it).

The later games fix a lot of the game play issues that the first game encountered and the story becomes much more complex. KH has a huge fan following, and there’s tons of videos that help break the story down if you’re having trouble. Overall, the story is fantastic and one of my favorites as far as action RPGs go.

Kingdom Hearts is an amazing story about friendship and the power of good. It has a steady flow of hack and slash with a bit of magic, Final Fantasy story-telling, and whole lot of Disney. You can explore so many Disney worlds with Donald and Goofy fighting by your side while you save your favorite characters and even enlist them for help later in the game.

Kingdom Hearts is a must for all Disney/Final Fantasy fans. Just be forgiving with the very first game. We all start somewhere.

  1. I’ll admit that I’m not much of a Kingdom Hearts fan. I played the first two games in the series and then moved on to other things. I remember enjoying the first one though. it’s been so long since I’ve played them. I actually wrote a post with my top 10 game series of all time. It was a really fun list to make.

    My all time favorite game series is a tie. The Elder Scrolls and Mass Effect. If I had to choose one it would be The Elder Scrolls.

  2. I have way too many series competing for favourites in my head hahaha.

    I really like Kingdom Hearts, especially the fact that if you attempt to recap the entire plot to someone who’s not played it, your explanation becomes increasingly complicated and silly, especially once you start bringing Nobodies into the mix hahaha

  3. This is my favorite series too because my best friend and I bonded over it when I played Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX on my PS4 because he recommend Kingdom Hearts to me since he played the games on the PS2. The series is special to me because my friend and I are very close.
