Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Platform: PS3
Price: $55

Though we usually discourage listing downloadables that cost as much as a console release (which Ni No Kuni is as well), we're going to make an exception for this gorgeously crafted RPG (role playing game) from Level-5 and Spirited Away animators Studio Ghibli. Aside from the sheer artistry you're getting (aside from beautiful Ghibli cutscenes, longtime composer Joe Hisaishi composed Ni No Kuni's soundtrack), the game has the drawn-out, epic scope of Dragon Quest with a thematically studio-appropriate story about a boy trying to cope with the death of his mother. Just make sure you've got the space on your hard drive, because it takes up a whopping 21 gigs.
