Since I was born a 90's kid, I didn't get exposed to the 80's all that much... okay, it was 1991, and the 80's were kinda still there where I grew up, but I digress. And one of those things I didn't get in on was the NES, but that might have been a bit of a blessing in disguise because from my experience, NES games are a chore to play, and this game is no exception.

“Since I was born a 90's kid, I didn't get exposed to the 80's all that much... okay, it was 1991, and the 80's were kinda still there where I grew up, but I digress. And one of those things I didn't get in on was the NES, but that might have been a bit of a blessing in disguise because from my experience, NES games are a chore to play, and this game is no exception. But to be fair, the game was rushed near the end...

However, the game can be fun to play if you're lucky enough to beat your enemies before your hit points reach 0, much like others. And by the time you first enter Magicant, you might have a blast, but when you get near the end... good luck to you. All in all, this is a definitive period piece for any gamer.

"Favorite game developer: Shigesato Itoi (Mother Trilogy) I recommend playing Mother 2 and 3 first, the best games in the series, then playing this game last if you want to. Mother is a masterpiece but the sequels are greater masterpieces."

" Someone's making maps for the Earthbound 0 remake remaking Mother in the Mother 2 engine. A conversion project that looks more complete was started by Tomato (the translator of Mother 3), and is being continued by people on Starment.net. edit: I'm not sure if these aren't the same remakes."

Mother Trilogy (4 games items)

" The US President of Nintendo says he's a huge Mother fan but unfortunately bringing the Mother trilogy into the US won't add enough 'business momentum', maybe because of legal issues of the sequels. Mother 1 was officially translated by Nintendo, but Nintendo doesn't have plans to release it outside of Japan. "
