Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

[Monday] SMAGGS #2: Kingdom Hearts

[This is the second post of a mini-six part series I wrote last week for everybody so you would have some fresh stuff about Grandma while we are out camping in the forest searching for the fountain of youth so that our foreheads will never be wrinkly with anger. We'll be back August 20th when we blog live back in Cleveland once again. Enjoy!]

Part 2
Kingdom Hearts

Again, this is something Grandma played, I did not. She wants to get Kingdom Hearts 2 because she says she "LOVES Kingdom Hearts!" I have come to learn that either acceptance or rejection of this game segregates you into two warring tribes. Either you love it, or you wish it would just fucking die. I never played it. I'm like the boring guy in the middle spouting hateful rhetoric such as "Meh..." and "Didn't play it yet, no comment....." Grandma, like many others in her tribe; believes such apathy towards Kingdom Hearts to be prophetic of a miserable life filled with depression and tragedy. To be successful, you MUST get this game.

I remember watching her play it and thinking.... "this isn't really Final Fantasy, don't let it trick you..." Grandma bought into it hook, line, and sinker. She really enjoyed it. Here's what I remember:

"It's GOOFY!!! That's cool! Yay!!"

"It's DONALD!!!!! Why is HE here? NEAT!"

"It's that EVIL CHICK!!! Sweet!!!"

"..........................................AERIS?! WHAT THE FUCK??"

    I'll full admit from when I played it through the first time, I had similar reactions.

    "Oh my god! Alladin! Awesome!"

    "It's Beast! Fuckin' A!"

    "OMFG Sora, do what I tell you to!"

    LOL I'm suprised noone even mentioned Cloud from FF7. Not that I like him or anything, but since he seems to be almost everyone's favorite FF character and all, I'm sure he's among the favorite KH characters.

    This is my favorite game on PS2...i'm 21 years old and let me tell you this is the best. It took me like 60 hours to beat the full game when it first came out.

    Hahah I am just
    buy D3 Gold suprised none of us possibly talked about Clouds from FF7. Not really that I favor him or her or maybe nearly anything, speculate they appears to be practically people's favourite FF personality and,Guild Wars 2 Gold I believe he or she is one of many preferred KH characters.
