It took me four years of whittling away at this game, but at long last I have finally beaten Kingdom Hearts. Yes, that does not have a “II” after it. I just finished the first one. I really wanted to beat that game before the summer was out. It took the whole summer after taking a year or so off from playing the game while I was sucked into the Xenosaga trilogy.
Currently on my plate for gaming nerdiness:
- Kingdom Hearts II
- Xenosaga III
- Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus
- Digital Devil Saga I
- Digital Devil Saga II
- Dragengard 2
That’s *counts on fingers* 8 games. I don’t think I will make it through them all before the summer is over. I suspect though, that I can probably beat down DDS 1 or .hack//quarantine because I am close to the end of both of those games, possibly both if I do nothing else in my free time for the next week.
It was worth it though, I really enjoyed the game even though it is a classic button masher and an example of major issues with camera angles in the early ps2 titles. Still, the scene at the very end made me cry. If you’ve beaten Kingdom Hearts, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, it wouldn’t make sense.
