Yeah I'm at like the first world (actually the second, I skipped the first, oops) and I already know this is like...probably my favorite Kingdom Hearts since the first.
I don't even know what the story is this time.
Something about...Yen Sid...blah blah blah I have a keyblade...blah blah blah Riku's haircut sucks.
So why do I like it so much?
Well, for one thing, I love virtual pets.
Ever since I got my first Tamagotchi in '97, I've been obsessed with the idea of raising and caring for electronic pets. I get very attached to them, too. I name them. I love them. Not as much as my real pets by a long shot, but a great deal more than I probably should.
And for another thing, I love Sora. He's one of my favorite video game characters, which is QUITE a feat for him, trust me. I see a lot of me in him - we're both a little on the stupid side, definitely a wee bit naive, and I also grew up on a beach (technically, an island, actually!) xD
And now Sora has virtual pets.
I don't care how many Ansems we have to add to make more Kingdom Hearts games now, if they bring me lovely gameplay additions like this one did. xD I know "Dreameaters" are VERY likely a one-game thing. But still.
This is the first time I've cared more about the game in Kingdom Hearts than the story...
And that makes me giddy.
I am so happy with this game you guys.
Also I just made a Yoggy Ram...his name is Ramses.
I want to draw him.
(btw there's way more to why I like this game than that, but they're not interesting so I don't feel like writing them up.)
