I don't know about the best, but it's definitely up there.
In terms of gameplay it could improve, story and setting are fantastic though. Nothing out there like them.

Dragon quest 5 is fine but doesn't come close to earthbound

Hell the porn is better than the games

The Mother series is really one of the most unique JRPG series I've ever played. Makes me skeptical about Mother 4.
>>
>>266254691

I like the look of what they are doing with 4. I don't think it'll be up to the standard of the franchise, but I still think it'll be fun.
>>
>>266254691
FUCK NO AGAIN

They're too linear to be the best.
>>
>>266255025
What's wrong anon?

With that mediocre gameplay, it sure as fuck isn't.
>>
>>266254575
Not him, but Dragon Quest V is better if we are going by the DS remake.

As someone who loves DQ5 to death, you're absolutely right about the porn.

They are sporadically releasing parts of the soundtrack. It's going to be out this year so not long now either way.

That pic looks like the dog is taking a long ass piss.
>>
>>266254885
It probably won't be a super emotional thrill ride because I don't think the developers are gonna put in anything inspired by their life events in the game. It might just be a fun RPG with some cool graphics and music, and that's all I'll need. That's all EB and M3 were to me anyways.

I just hope they keep the rhythm combat system.

Itoi has given it the thumbs up. If he thinks it's decent, I'm willing to give it a try...
>>
People only like it for it's story.
>>
>>266252527
While the series has some of the most unique charming aesthetics/atmosphere. It's biggest issue is it's gameplay.

Many people consider it to the be the best game for many reasons, but the gameplay certainly isn't one of them. If you take away every pleasing aspect of the games (art, animation, dialogue, sfx) you are left with an extremely barebones RPG. That doesn't mean it's awful by any means, but it certainly shows how far you can take simple gameplay and make it look pretty.

I think it's great, but I can see why some wouldn't like it as much.

>>266257887
>implying he even played it

it will prpbably straight out fanfic tier trash or simply a copymof a other mother game(what seems to be really likely fromnwhat i see on their site)

Whatever. The rolling hp dial is one of the most exciting additions to the typical jrpg formula ever.

More games need rhythm battles, too.

I'm played the first one, with the translation finished and corrected by fans. Is it true that it was made way easier than the original? Does it detract from the experience?

It's a nice little series, but anyone who thinks it's deep, or the greatest game ever, is a fedora tipping hipster.
>>
>>266254253
I don't understand this, one second everyone's shouting "WE HATE STORY, WE WANT MORE GAMEPLAY" but when it's about a Nintendo or retro game then it's "THE GAMEPLAY IS MEH, BUT THIS STORY IS FUCKING AMAZING 9/10!"

>>266259778
Anyone who thinks anything is the greatest is an asshole

Mother 3 is my favorite game, but I'd never say it's the best game
>>
>>266259778
It's deeply emotional. If that counts for anything.
>>
>>266259260
I love both the gameplay and story of Mother 3 though.

These are definitely not the best RPGs though, they're way too simple and easy.
>>
>>266260108
I feel like if the story is fucking god mode and the gameplay is good enough then the game will be great, but if the game has good story and meh gameplay then it's okayish, and if it has meh everything it's average. Then if it's shit, then it's shit. I don't even see why ratings are useful, I'd rather just want to know either GOOD or BAD. If it's good then it's worth a play.
>>
>>266259960
It's because the story doesn't try to be deep or pretentious, plus it has it's charm. It's also longer than 5 minutes
>>
>>266260321

Mother 3 tried too hard.
>>
>>266260538
But doesn't /v/ hate TLoU? It had pretty good story and had a little bit of charm. Same with the Walking Dead, you all claim it's a movie game and then fucking praise point and click games like King's Quest. It's not Nintendo games I guess then, it's just retro games.
>>
>>266260749
I think it tired just hard enough. It moved me greatly.
>>
>>266260749
How?
>>
>>266261695

There were parts that were needlessly dark to the point of being edgy.

Then it goes back to Mother 2 mode where everything's happy and silly.

I honestly didn't understand what the game wanted me to feel.

>>266261793
What parts were edgy?
>>
>>266261793
It wanted you to feel exactly the way you did. The game's tagline is "strange, funny, heartrending."
>>
>>266262001

It worked well in Mother 2's case.

Mother 3 was a tangled mess of emotions that advertised itself as being an emotional tearjerker, but also tried to pander to the Mother 2 crowed with shoehorned humor.

Fuck off.

I don't think you all understand what Itoi meant when he said he's not ever going to be creating Mother 4.

Right now you're living in Mother 4, they were literal when they called it Earthbound.

Mother 4 is happening right now, your life is Mother 4.

>>266262381

That was just his fancy pretentious way of saying he was done with the series.

When I say /v/ I mean either the majority or loud minority. When I say /v/ I mean the collected opinions put together until I see which one has more opinions of being greater.

In a way. It sort of felt to me like it was almost a sort of way to make the whole thing palatable. After all, it's a story about a fascist takeover ripping a family apart and destroying the world.

It was okay. Don't get how people say it gives them feels or whatever, though.
