According to research, choosing the weapons affects your stats as well as obtaining certain abilities at certain level ups.I don't care to much about the choice in regards to gameplay since I don't really notice anything substantial. So I just go with what felt appropriate and will give Sora the sword since Goofy uses a shield and Donald the staff. I tend to drop staff, but just because.
I personally never got the opportunity to play any Kingdom Hearts game, but I've heard good things. So I was curious on other's preferred paths.Usually I choose Staff and sacrifice the Sword. That's what I'm naturally drawn towards, but most of the time in KH2 I'll choose Shield and sacrifice Staff since magic is pretty useless in KH2.
