How good is Earthbound anyway?

And what makes it so good?

I haven't seen much of the gameplay, I know next to nothing about the story, and I don't hear much of the music.
Despite this, a lot of people, including my favorite Let's Player, Chuggaaconroy, praise it as one of the best games of all time.

It's a pretty fun twist on RPGs of its time. I really enjoy it - one of the first non-Pokemon RPGs I played through fully.

It was amazing for it's time. If you like old school RPG's like Final Fantasy you might like it.

It's an old game you can easily play for free on the pc now.


Isn't it first party though? Why would Nintendo release it on PC?

I'm not a gamer, I'm a Nintendrone. Here's proof I live to serve Nintendo:

Your favorite Let's Player is Chuggaaconroy yet you know nothing of the game? I guess you didn't see his EarthBound LP, lol.

But anyway, I think the best thing I can do is to just link to this 3-part review, if you have the time. He seems to explain a lot of what makes the game significant and good.
