I was just watching a video explaining the story of Kingdom Hearts and realized even after it was explained I had no freakin idea what had happened. Kinda how I feel about Metal Gear Solid. So which one do you thing is more confusing?

I feel bad saying this as I played this series for decades but MGS prob has one of the worst stories ever, its like it was written by a teen on lsd who never quite finished the story and instead fills in more nonsense on the go to wrap it up...
Some seem to think its just amazing since its been going on for long and has a deep story...yet its a complete convoluted mess of a story...all of which these things dont automatically make a story good which most around here seem to think otherwise.
Just because a story is deep does not make it good as this series shows lol...
I love this series but I wont lie the story is crap, utter crap and with each new release it just gets worse and worse, many praise kojima, when it comes to story telling I think hes one of the worst ever, the man is extremely talented in creating games or puutting his vision into reality but the guy does not know what the heck he is doing when it comes to stories.
MGSaga is a masterpiece of a story, makes perfect sense if you are even remotely smart.
On its 25th Anniversary, METAL GEAR is the only such longtime (25 real time years of actual storyline spanning around 75 ingame years), consistent, unrebooted, emotional, ongoing big series in the gaming world, that incorporates important educational themes, philosophical aspect, pre-emptive thematical connection to future (for each respective installment) real world events, ethical dilemmas and poses tons of moral questions.
These for its narrative. As a bonus we get great games, comprising of (but not only):
Great humor, emotion packed, sad moments, epic moments, on top of great unique gameplay, featuring ultimate variety, replayability and challenge, with tons of unlockables and packed with tons of (hilarious) Easter Eggs, soundtrack that is unmatched, some of the greatest characters ever created in any form of entertainment, VA that enhances the experience million-fold, and technical qualities not seen before in the industry (graphical quality, models, animation, sound quality, and AI, all in real time). Also, add unique gameplay inventions that were unheard to the industry before (and tons of fun too), jaw dropping innovations, and the introduction of great cinematography in gaming. Not to mention the superb use of poking into our real world, and the great use of breaking the 4th Wall.
Plus the creation of the stealth genre all by itself. It has long since established its Status as one of the Top 5 gaming series of all time, the only of these Top with actual connections to real life events, while Hideo Kojima has been established as a Legend in the gaming world.
METAL GEAR, FINAL FANTASY, The Legend of Zelda, Mario, and DRAGON QUEST, are probably the Top 5 video game franchises of all time. At least they are the closest in terms of years old, # of quality games, valid critical reception, valid gamer reception, legacy, innovation along tradition, exposure, sales.
Kingdom Hearts series is still good, its story is excellent, confusing at first, but clear as the calm sea after each installment, pretty greatly thought out and presented in a puzzle like way. But of course, Kingdom Hearts is still a rookie as a series compared to the above. Someday, maybe.
Wanna see a convoluted story / world / timeline? The Legend of Zelda. Its only real drawback.
