There are very few game genres more polarizing than the Japanese role-playing game, and inside that field Kingdom Hearts stands out as particularly so. It feels as if there’s very little middle ground when it comes to the adventures of Sora and company. In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a longtime fan of the series who sometimes gets a little anxious when he sees the internet’s latest volley against the series’ supposedly incomprehensible story or derisive sneer at just the word “zippers,” as if invoking it is all that’s necessary to mock the sensibilities of series character designer Tetsuya Nomura. For whatever reason, there’s a way in which disliking Kingdom Hearts accelerates past mere dislike.
