On home consoles, I've been playing Ni No Kuni a lot. It has every JRPG trope imaginable in it (for both story and gameplay), but it does most of them well. The familiar system is poorly done though. The creatures themselves are endearing (Captain Whamtastic is my current avatar), but the actual creature taming method is completely luck-based, which is often a bad idea in video games. Potential is there, but what we have right now is a less than stellar Pokemon and SMT rip-off. And like WhiteCrow said, there's a lot of hand-holding, which gets annoying after a while. Still a great game though.
The fact that it's a PS3 game gets in the way of it becoming a timesink though. Since the game is stuck at home, I can't micromanage my party members or spend nearly as much time on it as any portable RPG. For every hour I invest into Ni No Kuni, I'm clocking another two into Fire Emblem.
