    Why is Earthbound so overrated?

    I'll ask you something...

    What do you think of the role of Paula as the female lead in Earthbound? Is she suitable for the part, and did she reflect the values of the idealistic post-war America of the late 1940s and early 50s properly, despite her psychic powers?

    (you did say anything. I mean, you said "almost anything" but you didn't say what you wouldn't answer)

    not gonna answer that. it is my favorite game ever, so i dont think its overratted

    hmmm... i... uhhh... sorry, im just not really good at answering questions like that, but considering her working mom as a teacher and making handaids, and her dress and teddy bears, i think that despite the psi she fits her role well. its all a matter of interprettation though.

    because hippies are still humans, and plastic bats can hurt alot, to the point of breaking bones iff you're heartless enough, also, the cracked and teeball bats could be either wood or plastic, and people have been killed with wooden bats.

    Why does anyone care about this thread?

    I can just Google anything Earthbound related if I wanted to find out anything about Earthbound without a whole "LOOK HOW MUCH I KNOW ABOUT EARTHBOUND!" complex here.

    i don't really know. probably because Itoi and the designers were obviously on some pretty hard drugs. still they came up wih a wonderful game though. i could be wrong, but in all my days of earthbound obsessiveness I've never seen a genuine explanation for it though. also, it has never been confirmed that jeff likes him back(or maybe ive just never seen it), but i like to think that its not so.

    well okay then. I'm not trying to show off. I'm not the only one who can answer these questions, sure. anyone can, if they want to. but I've played this game alot, and not everything can be easily found out with google. at least, not easily. besides, why were you even on this topic anyways then? i don't have anything to show off about. I'm sure their are hundreds of people who know more than i do. im just trying to be helpful to some people. good day sir.

    sorry, no. and i don't think there's a code for it either. your just gonna have to use a code to get the item, or find a save editor or something.

    Wouldn't Earthbound be better if it were set in realistic war-like environment where you shoot things in a first person perspective, to stop some modern international terrorists?

    i don't think so. i think being set in a romanticized Japanese stereotyped America makes for a wonderful game, and i like RPG's better than FPS. all a matter of preference though.

    in your previous post you stated "shoot things in a first person perspective" therefore, First Person Shooter.

    Aye, you just shot tings in a first person perspective. Everything is in 16 bit 2D sprites.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean now. i know its 16 bit 2d. but if you mean the graphics suck, well, I'm not a graphic whore.

    I mean the entire game is in 2D 16bit graphics with the exception of the parts in first person, where you shoot stuff. In those parts, it's all realistic and grey.

    How many ways is Mass Effect superior to Earthbound?

    are you saying the battle sequences are replaced with FPS sequences? cause i love the battle sequences, much better than any FPS I've ever played.

    I've never played it, but earthbound has been my favorite game ever for as long as i can remember, and i have played COD and all those games, so i doubt i'd find it superior.
