Back then, very few people outside of Japan know that Earthbound is a sequel to MOTHER. And this game is a huge improvement over its predecessor. This time, you can see enemies, you can heal yourself while you take damage, and you have 4 fighters at a time rather than 3. You are also no longer limited to the series' equivalent of America (called Eagleland here), as you can also go to Foggyland (pa... read more

"Earthbound/Mother series Last game in series: Mother 3 (GBA Japan only; April 20, 2006)"

“Back then, very few people outside of Japan know that Earthbound is a sequel to MOTHER. And this game is a huge improvement over its predecessor. This time, you can see enemies, you can heal yourself while you take damage, and you have 4 fighters at a time rather than 3. You are also no longer limited to the series' equivalent of America (called Eagleland here), as you can also go to Foggyland (parallel to Europe) and Chommo (parallel to Asia). There's also condiments to use for HP-restoring food, such as hamburgers and ketchup. Once you play this game, you'll never want to put down your SNES controller.

"Best gameplay The gameplay's skeleton is taken from Dragon Quest, the game that inspired the creator of the Mother games to make a video game. Earthbound has more cool weapons and powers like PSI Rockin. Unlike Dragon Quest and most JRPGS, there are only visible characters to battle, and weak enemies usually run away and instantly die, preventing you from wasting time. Picture of a game setting you wish you lived in and a character that I'm most like. I relate to Mr. Saturns because they ar"

"I played only a little bit of it and I like from what I saw. I know it is around 150-200 dollars but I'm willing to play more of the game and see if I get into this series in May or in June. Edit: Just ordered recently."

Mother Trilogy (4 games items)

" The only Mother game you can legally buy outside of Japan, if you have about $100 to spend on a used Earthbound cart. If you're playing a pirated cart you'll get a (this video contains spoilers) terrible surprise. Modern emulators don't have this problem."

30-ish criminally underrated games (30 games items)

"When I first laid eyes on Earthbound as a kid, I remember thinking that compared with Final Fantasy VI and Secret of Mana et al, it looked pretty shoddy. Years later, when I realised what a blind little whelp I had been, I finally got to play the game and was totally blown away. There are few RPG's I've ever played which can match Earthbound's humour, sentiment and sense of morality. It is a wonderful journey that any RPG fan should experience, and shows that the Japanese can do 'American' bett"
