First of all, I am not a gamer so I realize that this rant is laughable to those who have mastered the gaming arts. Second, I don’t care. I have actually played Kingdom Hearts twice in the past. I beat it with help the first time, and I did not finish the whole game the second time around due to my family’s big move. I am determined to complete the game by myself. That is proving to be way more difficult than I expected. After a year of on and off attempts, I finally beat the Wonderland trickmaster last week and moved on to the Deep Jungle. Tarzan is my favorite animated Disney movie so I was pumped to get started. My balloon was immediately popped when I met a nemesis from my KH past: THE VINES!! I cannot for the life of me swing from vine to vine for more than one minute, and I’m starting to resent Hippo’s Lagoon because that’s all I ever see due to the number of times I fall. I know my lack of experience is a large part of the problem, but I also think the controls for this game are infuriating. Perhaps that’s a defensive statement, but I have a little evidence to back it up. My brother, who is a gamer, tried to play it and had to walk away. He said the controls are different from other games, and he doesn’t understand why. I don’t understand the details, but I do trust his judgement because he’s been playing video games since he was a little boy. Why is this rant important? It isn’t. Just now I attempted to advance in the game and failed miserably. The vines were once again my undoing, and I wanted to blog with fresh anger burning within me. Hopefully someone somewhere can commiserate with me. I can’t be the only who hates KH now that I actually play it!!
