Never played earthbound and I remember why now...

So what's the deal with not having a context sensitive action button? At this point in gaming why do you STILL have to go into a menu and then select "talk" or "Check" it's so clunky and frustrating, completely saps the enjoyment out of the game.

"At this point in gaming"? You mean 18 years ago, back in 1995?

WTF the L button? Why the hell is it the L button? I would have NEVER thought to use that, ever. What were they thinking?

That people would actually read the instruction manual?

This is why we have to have 5-minute-long tutorials for any given button press in modern games...

Uh yeah, back in 1995 games have come to the point where you go up to a person and press the A button (or whatever other face button on your controller) and they talked to you. See any final fantasy game, or other SNES RPG.

It makes the game playable with only 1 hand. Not the only snes rpg that did this.
