I think it's pretty average, especially to other jrpgs of the time. Not saying it's bad but it there really a need to get to so hyped about a 20 year old game? Sure it's expensive and rare but so are a lot of other games. What's makes EB so special?

Earthbound is in one of my top five games of all time.


Yes, the graphics were inferior to other JRPGs of the time and the game's battle system could feel dated to some, but it had a charm that no other game at the time and no other game really makes me feel the way it did - I get the same warm-fuzzies playing in now as I did years ago.

Um have you played it? At the time of release it was said the players guide was required to beat the game and to this day I think its the only game that came with a strategy guide for that reason.

So what im trying to say is for any hardcore rpg lover it is considered a challenge to play without the guide.

Still better than garbage like Mass Effect and most other games made nowadays...even if you think it's average, average is still king in a land of mediocrity.
