When I think about it, this game actually kind of does suck.

When I think about it, this game actually kind of does suck. For an RPG, it has no replay value to speak of

>99% linear with no side quests
>No party organization to give certain characters priority over others
>No unique equipment builds that reward smarter thinking, not harder thinking
>No way to truly test your characters skills with the lack of a new game+ feature

Would have been nice to have, but this is give or take:
>Alternate party members
>Alternate endings
>Monster/boss arena

At the end of the day, it's still a VIDEO GAME and not an interactive experience. You don't cut Gone Home any slack(the hipsters that love Earthbound LOVE Gone Home as well), neither should you with Earthbound

It's a silly game that shouldn't be taken seriously. Too bad the fanbase is on Jojo levels of shit and will call anyone who dares to disagree with their opinion, a master baiter.

The game itself is a solid 6/10. Nice story, but that's it. Games shouldn't be made with story as a central focus.

Those are the things that make Earthbound. The programming was surprisingly not good (mediocre battle system, slow movement, slowdowns up the ass) for all the praise Iwata gets.

The game just beginnings, which I find really weird.

Literally the worst fucking thing ever. That shit doesn't add re-playability, it makes me not want to play the game because some miniscule retard question a few hours in might completely fuck my play through.

I don't think an RPG is the sort of genre that is common for having replayability. If it does it's usually things like character progression paths and finding secret shit you didn't know about or getting your dudes OP as early as you can. I've played Earthbound once every couple of years since it came out.

4-5 playthroughs over the course of 20 years for me isn't bad for a game with "zero replay value". It's not Earthbound's gameplay that shines. I think that can be said for a lot of the turn based RPG's of the time. It's presentation from the atmosphere, music, & art style. It's sense of humor. The problem is most definitely that you're a stupid idiot. You're a waste of life. You fucking pig.

That's not strawman at all, that is what he said, I'm pointing out how that's horseshit and shows that he has a bias.

He's saying it's bad because it's not like most JRPGs.

All a game has to do to have 'replay value' is be a really good video game, imo.

I've played Earthbound through a few times over the past 10 years or so because it's a pretty great game. That's all that really matters to me, personally.

It's an okay Dragon Quest clone salvaged by its endearing writing and world. I'd never call it the best RPG ever made but it has its niche.
It does have some neat mechanics here and there that I wish more RPGs utilized though. Rolling health gives the battles some nice tension and lets the game throw absurdly strong enemies at you without the player feeling unprepared, the rhythm system in Mother 3 has a lot of room to develop and the auto-kills on the overworld should be a standard in every RPG that features field enemies.

Mother 1 could actually be the best game if you gave it all the advancements and polish of the two sequels. Its main problems all stem from being an NES era RPG.

As far as the game design itself is concerned its probably the most balanced of the trilogy, since it has both the open suburban world of Earthbound and the strong story elements of Mother 3 in the same package.

Currently on my first play through of 3. People talking up its greatness on v has been nice to motivate me to play more. Earthbound is an all time favorite, but Mother 3 is having a hard time holding my attention for long periods. I believe I'm in chapter 3. I hope the investment of time pays off.
>>
>>286819118

I respect Earthbound, but it's not even the best one in the series. Mother 4 might even be better, which is bold to say. But I say that 'cause I'm not an older fan of the series, so there are no nostalgia goggles involved. I always knew about it, but I played through it about 4 years ago.
