I am wholeheartedly with you on the selfie taking being idiotic. Though it technically has been a thing since the 1990s it's just that in recent years the not so intelligent people came up with that silly term "selfie", and have overdone it to death at this point. I admit it is at least fun to do it in the game.I'm fine with the gummiphone existing (ironic because I hate the concept of selfie taking, considering how much suffering it brings from people's stupidity) so long as they implement a feature where you can repeatedly harass demyx and co. and exhaust his pre recorded lines. Who's with me!
I notice quite a lot of people don't like the phone part of the gummiphone. I am mostly in agreement with that sentiment as well. I should be more specific. I only wish for the camera part of it to return. The photos for missions or just messing around with characters during your free time is the real fun part of it. Perhaps a "gummicamera" would suffice instead. I definitely do not want the gummiphone back to engulf a good portion of the cutscenes in games. The whole instagram knockoff thing always came off as rather tacky to me. Coming from someone who doesn't even bother with any form of social media anymore, I can live without it. I mean why is it even in the KH universe when everyone is also talking about world order. It's all very contradictory.
One of my pet peeves about KH3 is that I feel the developers spent more time implementing as much fads and memes they missed out in the freaking 13 year gap between kh2 and kh3 to appeal to the younger social media obsessed generation that they put things in the game that don't make sense for the story. In a way they alienated the older fans who actually cared about the story, and in doing so the story itself felt like a rushed mess because you know we had to have a smartphone and social media exist in a universe where people are suppose to be oblivious of other worlds.
