When I was 10 years old, I walked into a GameStop with my mom and saw posters for a video game that would change my life. Donald Duck and Goofy stared wistfully at the sky alongside a few spiky-haired anime-esque characters that I’d never seen before.
The poster was for Kingdom Hearts, where you play a young boy battling darkness in the Disney realms. Oh, and characters from Final Fantasy show up. Ahead of its third main installment, I spoke with Outline culture editor Jeremy Gordon about growing up with the game, and what it means to revisit things you loved as a kid.
