Final Fantasy XIII revolutionized the JRPG genre. It defined the level of art.

Because it's supposedly "for kids" and "not adult enough".

Just copy/paste this whenever you see such a post (idea taken from another GFAQs user)

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” - C.S. Lewis

Same studio but completely different artstyle and themes. And to fair, it would be nice to get a more mature JRPG for a the playstation. Picking are slim for that genre.

"Games are for children" is the old school mentality the general public had in the 80's and 90's since adults back then did not grow up with video games so rarely had an interest in them. Now the kids of the 80's and 90's are grown up so they don't share that old sentiment...
Many also do not share the 'this game is kiddy looking' sentiment because they grew up with less dudebro-serious iconic video game characters that were not age specific.
So the people who scream that are usually the ones with the insecurity or maturity issues...or are just still kids themselves...

Despite the moniker "For Everyone", it's not a style that everyone likes. Some people don't like it, for whatever reason.

I'm one of them, and I honestly feel like the reason is because of oversaturation. It's been awhile since we've seen a JRPG that didn't have a "For Everyone" or "Lighthearted" style to it, and the ones that we have seen don't use the same game play formula that Ni No Kuni does.

I'm still getting the game, despite that, but it's mostly because of the return of the "Traditional" JRPG game play formula that I fell in love with.

It's also why I wish they'd hurry up with Versus XIII, because it looks like a "Mature" Ni No Kuni in terms of presentation and story, and it appeared to have the same "Traditional" JRPG game play formula.

Saying something has "Charm" is just a cute way of saying it's lighthearted and kiddy.
