Anyone who is looking for a good follow up to this needs to pick up Tales of Xillia, it is one of the few remaining JRPG series that still sticks to it's roots.

Stop making me want to add to my back log!!! What's the use...resistance is futile. I'm going to have to pick this up. I was going to try and plat TLOU, but I don't think I can manage that game on Survivor+. Tales of Xillia will have to fill the void until my PS4 arrives.

Just finished this with my young children. We had a blast playing it together. My daughter (4) enjoyed doing the walking around, boating and dragon flying, it was easy for her to navigate with the map and and the star for the target of the next story mission. She also loved the feeding the familiars and alchemy stuff. My son (5) liked some of that stuff too and did some of the smaller fights. I did the boss battles and did some grinding and side tasks on my own when the kids went to bed.

My son still wants to play it but I'm burned out on the post game stuff as mentioned before. We finished in about 85 hours.

I've seen mention of Tales of Xillia being another similar style of game, but the videos I've seen of it make it seem like it might be a bit much for my young children. We played it because they loved Ponyo and I'm a fan of the other slightly more mature Studio Gibli offerings and look forward to sharing them with my kids in a few years. Any recommendations for another game we can play this way together?

Yeah, any of the Tales games would be a bit much. (All of them tend to have mature themes) Most of them do have local co-op, so they may be an option. Tales of Symphonia HD releases soon, but some of the themes could be a bit much for their age. I would take a few Tales games for a test run before letting them play. (Beware Graces, it has a rather violent scene early on, if you can avoid them seeing it, it should be ok)

Ni No Kuni was a rare event, aside from some mild language it was kid friendly.

Kingdom Hearts is a safe choice for them, not sure how you could take turns on that one...

The Ratchet and Clank series would also be a solid choice for young kids. The playing as a family part would be a challenge here as well.


Your best bet would be to get a Wii U and play Mario co-op with them. NSMBU and 3D World both have full co-op and Mario Kart and Smash are coming soon, also great family games to play together.

It's nothing like Ni no Kuni, but LittleBigPlanet 2 is my automatic recommendation for a game you can play co-op with kids.

Ratchet and Clank : All for one can be played with 4 players so it could be an option.

Wii U is great fun for coop action smile.gif

Thanks, we have Ratchet and Clank. My son loves it, my daughter just kind of hold the controller. She likes to watch but is not able to play.

Ni No Kuni was just perfect as we all loved the story and could pass the controller around so we were all engaged. Such a great experience. I hope there is a sequel or an expansion.

I was kinda surpised that Ni No Kuni wasnt 2 players. With 3 controllable characters in battle you'd think it would be very easy to widen the camera angle and give control to that second player.

If I recall, Dragon Quest 8 could be played by two players?
