Link (who is 10 I believe)would like to have a word with you about the best game ever ;)

Yup he sure was 10 years old in Zelda OOT. Besides Zelda isn't an RPG its not dependant on telling a story as it is for its brilliant level design and well crafted Dungeons. How the hell can I take a game seriously when some 8 year old is tasked with saving it? :lol:

he loved it, though (in the Now Playing).

rumbalumba

He did, and so did Kevin Vanord. It's safe to say that the game will score relatively high if either person reviews it.

[QUOTE="game_masta14"]Aside from GI and eventually GS, this game is already looking to be the PS3's best game of 2013 and an easy contender for PS3 (keyword being PS3) GOTY. Overall GOTY is yet to be decided but I wouldn't be surprised if Ni no Kuni made the cut. I need a job so I can get this game.....or my tax refund :PGue1

And JRPG's tend to vary in score as is. Baten Kaitos (and Origins) deserved much better reviews. I love those games!

Baten Kaitos has an 80/100 on Metacritic so I don't know what more you were expecting to be honest. That game doesn't deserve triple A. One of my favorite series is Yakuza but objectively speaking it doesn't deserve triple A either. I mean, why is an 8/10 not enough for a gamer? You know how hard it is for a movie to get that kind of score? No wonder the average for games is 7/10!!

Origins did worse and thats really the one I am talking about. a 7.anything is not right for that game. And yes both deserve AAA. When games like FF X and other RPG's are AAA, and don't even get me started on Xenoblade, Baten Kaitos beats both of those out big time. The game got a bad rap because people saw cards and turned away.

My point is, most people on here look at a game that got less than a 9 and say, oh ....its good but not great. Well that is not always the case.

I'm not saying a game has to have guns, blood, and sex but this is completely unappealing to me the adult male.

I can deal with Xenoblade and I can deal with The Last Story but this is just plain childish.

I get wanting something more adult oriented. I really do. Honestly the kid and such kinda was something I was skeptical about. But there are 2 reasons I changed my mind. 1 is that the game looks downright awesome. 2 is that the story acknowledges he is a little boy. It doesn't seem weird, cause the story revolves around that and his relationship with his mom. It looks like a story about a little kid an adult could understand and really get into.

Pokemon...well it has its kiddy aspects but...screw it :P. It is also deep, fun, and perfectly suited for any age as well.

Because you have the mentality of someone that drives a hummer. You're not playing a game with an 8 year-old protagonist? Don't read Blood Meridian! That has a kid for a protagonist. Don't bother watching Stand By Me; a bunch of whining kids in that film! Grow a pair, you close-minded fool.

GD1551

Exactly, the lead character is very important to any Role Playing Game where your heavily invested into the character. Which is why imo FFX was so weak. I mean Tidus? Seriously? I can't take a story serioulsy when the only hope for the world is not the finest knights in the kingdom, not the largest military force on the planet, not the most well trained soilders out there. But a bunch of 8 year old kids :lol:

This is why I appreciated Final Fantasy IV's story so much as Cecil was already a well established Knight. He wasn't some clown kid saving the world.

I never had an issue with things appearing childish, if you get right down to it the entire megaman series fits the bill.
