They are both awful, it's just Nomua is a little bit less awful.

Well to be fair Toriyama had a big hand in FFX and Nomura didn't aside from artwork, IIRC.

Toriyama also tarnished PE and FM. So lending a hand in a good game is erased by destroying two good games beyond recognition.

Toriyama has more creative writing, but "creative" doesn't always equal to "popular".
Nomura is more consistent, but he tends to fall on generic cliches ("light vs darkness", "save the girl", "doomed starting village", etc.) and most of his characters have horrible design... I'm sick of bishonens, asymmetrical clothes, belts and zippers.
Overall I prefer Toriyama.

Notice how LenneIcan'tspellValkyrie appears along with Snowx.

The guy never left us, he was just using an alt account.

Woah woah woah... am I actually reading a post about Toriyama not written by me that makes sense?
I'm glad to see that someone else other than me can write "Toriyama" without having his/her IQ reduced to single digits. Perhaps there is still hope for this fanbase.

Nomura's writing has to be bad, I understand XIII to theorize it, but I can't make head nor tail of KH. The random Disney and FF/TWEWY characters don't help one bit, it's a horrible mish-mash of fail and I hate it.

I at least like Nomura's characters. Organization XIII, the main three heroes, these were cool people who I actually cared about. He really needs to get his crap in line though, because Kingdom Hearts is spiraling into a gigantic clusterfail. And at least until 3D, I understood Kingdom Hearts' storyline.

Well even before 3D the dialogue was the most cringe-worthy in gaming history and the characters were still cardboard thin and the story was still lame and followed no rules.
