Ni no Kuni is definitely the PS3's best JRPG...Top 10 ever?

I'm about 10 hours in so far and find it really hard to break out of. The world Level-Ghibli have created is right up there with the best JRPG's, everything feels just magical and authentic, pure and simple. Borderlands 2, Skyrim, Hitman...everything else has been swept aside now to focus on this masterpiece. I'd probably put it in my top 10 favourite games this gen. I'm really not surprised it sold out in two days. Everyone should play it.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

It is good, but not one of the top 10 ever.

And calling it the best PS3 RPG is kinda laughable considering we don't have many to begin with.

"Everyone should play it"
The audience for this game is small

Ni No Kuni is a niche game its catering to a very small audience it is not mainstream thank goodness, and its doing well, maybe this is a shock to developers produce games the way they are suppose to be done and the fans and money will come.

Stop trying to mimic COD or other games and make games just to make games, not for the money, idk if you are a company or a small developer the golden years showed that if games are good money will come instead of trying so hard.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.

Don't consider it a "niche" game, Since pretty much everyone in PS3 boards know it

Yes and the PS3 board is just the center of the universe.

I THINK I've seen a commercial spot for NNK.

After 30 hours of gameplay, I can say Ni no Kuni is far overrated from what I've seen from critics reviews. It's just a good game, that deserves no more than a 8/10.
Among the jrpg games I played on PS3, I personally think that Eternal Sonata and Final Fantasy XIII are better than Ni no Kuni, in many aspects.
Only because it has towns, villages and a world map, it doesn't automatically mean it is a fantastic Jrpg, you know.

NNK is not a Top 10 candidate, but it is a very good RPG.
I sometimes feel as though life is a curse that has been placed on the living. I envy the unborn at times.

It is really only highly praised because it is a throwback title.

If we weren't starved for traditional and actually good RPGs, nobody would really care.

It IS one of the best on the PS3, but that isn't saying much out of what, maybe 10 actually good RPGs? (None of those including the letters "XIII")
