Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review | The Washington Times

Joseph Szadkowski of The Washington Times writes "It’s hard not to imagine that any 10-year-old would not immediately fall in love Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch."

"An epic that liberally plucks the heart strings as it taps into some of the best elements from The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and a pinch of Harry Potter.”

It’s an imaginative role-playing journey worth investing in and one of the best games available for the PlayStation 3 in a long time." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) -

Or is just not into JRPG's? I mean I adore Rayman Origins and its wonderful array of colours and gorgeous artwork but JRPG's are just not for me.

That's not really a valid argument.

JRPGs... or, really, RPGs in general aren't really a genre. There is no definite set of narrative, gameplay or aesthetic rules that characterize them. You can't hate all RPGs because the genre is so incredibly diverse. Some play like fighters, some play like RTS games, some play like chess, some play like Dragon Quest, some play like card games.

Because of that, when people say they dislike JRPGs, it very much feels like their emphasis is on the "J"--that they're saying they don't like Japanese games. That is a form of bigotry (one quite prevalent in the post-2005 gaming world).

I'm not accusing you, personally, of having that bias... I'm just trying to inform you of how a statement like that "sounds."

If you've ever taken, for example, a middle-school Art Appreciation class, your teacher probably explained to you how it's incorrect to say "I don't like watercolors," or, "I don't like classical music," because, well, it's stupid--those mediums are simply too great and too diverse for -ANYONE- to form a legitimate, generalized opinion on. The proper way to respond is, "I don't like THIS music, or THAT painting."

So, tl;dr, what you should have said is this: "I haven't really enjoyed the few JRPG that I have played."

...

@MmaFan-Qc: I think you're confusing 30 year old adults with teenagers who desperately want to be thought of as adults.

Actually thats not true, I love Street Fighter, Dragon Ball Z, GT, Metal Gear, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, Mario and Castlevania (LoS is my game of the gen) I just don't enjoy JRPG's, not Final Fantasy, not Star Ocean and not Lost Odyssey so its not that I haven't tried.
It's got nothing to do with the J like you're suggesting, so you can get off your high horse now.

39 here and i'm having a blast with this game brings me back to my youth lol.

I am also 39 and am loving this game. I was thinking the same thing about it reminding me of the old RPG's that we all used to love. The best thing is that my 8 year old son is also loving this game. He'll go ahead of me and then I will play at night after all my kids(4) have gone to bed and I'll get a little ahead of him. I like to help him out but the best part is seeing the excitement in his face when he discovers something new in the game. He comes running to tell me. :)

Hahaha, I hope that is just a hyperbole. It's good, but not that good.

I haven't played a lot of jrpg's in the past, but had to pick this up because of Studio Ghibli's involvement. Absoutely love it 5 hours in!
