"Role Playing Games are mostly, if not near entirely, about story. A developers goal is to inthrall you in a world you want to lose yourself in. A world that absorbs you and won’t let you go. A world where you’re given the freedom to explore while granted a reason to press on. As the genre has struggled forward into the current generation, it’s lost a lot of tradition on the way. Final Fantasy XIII, in some eyes, might as well just be Final Fantasy by name alone – the RPG we used to know and love nearly no longer exists. But with Level-5’s Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch it seems that the genre has reverted back to how it once was – and that’s not a bad thing at all."
