I haven't played much of the Mother series, in fact I have only played a few hours of the first part. However, in that short time and in what I saw from Mother 3 so far, it heavily reminded me of Pokemon. The kind of realistic style, the start at your home you can come back to, the cities and landscape between them, even the crazy enemies somewhat resemble Pokemon. Obviously, Mother was the earlier game. So it looks like Pokemon is pretty much a direct copy of Mother, with monster collecting tacked on. Does anyone feel similarly? I'd like to hear some thoughts about the subject from people who know the Mother series better than I do. Also, are there other games with a similar style?
