Mother. Better known in the USA as "Earthbound". Only the SNES Earthbound was translated and released in the USA ("Mother 2"), but a translation group got together and translated the original NES title (Mother), under the name "Earthbound Zero".
They were great, off-beat RPGs with weird senses of humor. Even in today's RPG-soaked society, Earthbound stands out of the pack as a refreshing breath of fresh air on almost every faucet. Instead of orchastrated music, you had techno. Instead of swords and sorcery (or techno-futuristic-utopias), you had modern day people with psychic abilities. Most RPG cliches are either missing or drastically altered.
