The thread from yesterday opened my eyes to how really shitty the game is, and I even own it.
>goats almost look exactly like mimigas
>flowers associated with evil/defilement of said mimigoats
>"science is evil!!!"
>ballos and sans are both short, fat, have flashing eyes, and are the bosses of a hidden path
>mettaton and balrog are both comedic relief robots who burst through a wall saying "oh yeah!" at one point
>both main characters go underground
>ripped soundfonts and opera scene
>temmie = mr. saturn
>froggit = pepe
>longdog = longcat
>burgerpants = dropped my spaggetti
Boy do I feel like a fucking idiot now knowing Fox is running off with all my cash.
>A hero saves a bunch of disadvantaged characters from a lifetime of being trapped in a bad situation.
Not original? Surely you jest?
I'm surprised you list earthbound but then fail to list off that the entire game is a homage to earthbound.
>final boss = giygas
>striped shirt hero
>sans and papyrus are mother 3 brothers "brother killer"
>all sprites are same color/look of earthbound shit
Undershit is all right but he did just copy JRPGs. Storywise I felt he was inspired by Wild Arms 1. They both are about demons losing a place to live because of humans. As a result the demons become pissed off at humans and wanted to kill all humans. But in both games after a lot of time has passed there are now both humans and demons who just want to get along, but they can't because of tradition.
There are a few character archetype copies too, like the tall lanky joke character Papyrus/Zed who wears a scarf (even their sprites are similar), the female knight general & bad demon Undying/Lady Harken who was actually good, the spear using king/general, lots of spears, etc.
But what do I know. The Undertale fandom is weird, the game is just an OK one with a few gameplay problems.
the game takes a lot of insperation from earthbound, especially considering that the guy who made it was part of the homestuck team.
homestuck is like earthbound if it was a tween drama with a tumblr fanbase, undertale is merely an extention of that
"GUYS! GUYS! HIS GAME ISN'T 100% UNIQUE! SOME OF THE CHARACTERS ARE SIMILAR TO SOME CHARACTERS TO GAMES I REALLY LIKE BUT NO ONE ELSE LIKES! THAT MEANS IT'S A SHIT GAME RIGHT?!?!?!"
Come on man, if you didn't like it bother steam for a refund and don't play it.
But really, we know why you don't like it. That reason has nothing to do with the game itself.
The player character is basically Sepiroth from Final Fantasy 7 in shota/loli form.
