As the topic title says, take yourselves back in time and imagine a world where the Kingdom Hearts series never ventured to the handhelds, and every game was designed for the PS2/PS3. We would have the same titles, but with the battle system of KH1 and KH2, where you have your MP/AP and gain abilities as you level up. Which handheld title to do you in the community think would have benefited the most and where would you rank each one among all KH games (including KH3) and why?

For me, BBS would've been so much better off had it originated on the PS3. As it stands now, I still really like the games' story and along with proper enemy/boss stagger and more satisfying combat, this game would probably be my hands down favorite even now. 358/2 days would make a massive leap into my upper tier of KH games as well. My ranking in this scenario.....

Re: Coded

Feel free to take into consideration combat mechanics/world design/world selection or maybe even story stuff that you think would or wouldn't have been factors, had the series stayed on home consoles at the time.

**I included the X series as to not leave it out**

BbS could have benefitted more from being on a home console but I'll take Re:Coded any day if everything remains the same. I think changing many of these games to rely on KH2 mechanics would weaken the uniqueness of the games. For example, if BbS was on the PS3 instead I would hope it takes after the good parts/commands of Re:Coded rather than change completely.

I would say that BBS only needs more i-frames and for MF to not be so cheap and it'd be in my top tier list of games of all time.

I think we still would have gotten something like the command deck even if the series continued on consoles because they were intending to experiment with new gameplay styles anyway. But if they did stick to command menu, then I think KH3 would have been a lot better gameplay wise as osaka would already have experience working with the command menu. Their balance issues probably would have been present as well.
Not changing this sig until Gravity Rush 3 gets announced. Don't throw away an IP with so much potential, Sony!
WOOT! Kingdom Hearts III 2019 hype!

So you don't think the command deck system was a necessity because of the platform?

BBS is the most obvious answer. Both of its story and gameplay stood up well to the numbered entries already, and it introduced the main villain of the series. It deserved to be a proper "KH0" that people don't diss as "handheld spinoff"
Xehanort's guardian is the will of Kairi's grandma. It will absorb Xehanort and become Kairi's grandma, the final villain!!!

Definitely BBS. I could see it being really fun and unique if each of the trio had their own attacks and spells for the command menu. That plus I'm a fan of its story, so giving it that gameplay would automatically put it in the top 3 KH games for me. Also, if it were on PS3, that probably would've meant we got to keep the capes, which would've been another bonus.

No vote. The "traditional" gameplay in KH is the weakest in the series. KH is at it's best when it gets experimental.

They do.

Terra has Meteor Crash, Quake, and Meteor as well as Zantetsuken, Chaos Blade, Warp, Brutal Blast, Geo Impact, and Windcutter.
Ventus has Tornado, Tornado Strike, Treasure Raid, and Wind Raid. (not to mention Faith and Salvation)
Aqua has Magic Hour, Glacier, Ice Barrage, Firaga Burst, Triple Firaga, Triple Blizzaga, and Thundaga Shot.

The problem with these two slot commands, however, is that they don't have ANY i-frames which makes them far less viable than Thunder Surge.

I meant for the command menu specifically, like if everyone got Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, and Cure, but Terra also got Earth spells, whereas Aqua got Water, and Ventus got Aero. Essentially those commands turned into actual 3-level magic.
