And BBS feels to me, in a way I can't quite adequately describe, as sort of a "This is what we're doing now" statement for the overall KH series. It honestly pulled me off the KH train quite a ways. I'm still interested, of course, but that fiery love that I have for the first three (be it simple nostalgia or what have you) just doesn't extend to or beyond this game.
This, so much this.
Personally speaking this is what got to me especially after DDD and 0.2: this is what the franchise is now. More of things I'm not quite fond of and less of the things I loved.
I think sometimes, even on this forum, the key factor is that many people don't realize that the criticism and negativity aren't really about the game itself: a flawed game, a game that didn't resonate with someone's tastes, that's perfectly fine. The problem is when we see a certain element not as a one thing only, but as a new staple in the entire series.
So it's not really "I didn't like BbS therefore it's a dumb game and everyone who likes it it's dumb", but "BbS represents what this saga has become and I'm not okay with it, because I'm at a huge loss."
But, I've always considered that a fault of mine, rather than others being wrong about it.
I think it's neither, it's taste.
Some welcomed the new elements, others were more of a fan of the old stuff.
