Now that I've finished Earthbound, I can say that I can begin to understand why it has such a strong cult following behind it. There's a lot of amusing little bits in the game that can be quite charming. The NPCs often break the 4th wall with information about the game or when trying to present information. If there's a NPC that isn't very relevant to the storyline or what you need to do, the game is not afraid to make sure that the NPC will tell you that. And if all hope is lost and you have no idea where to go, you can always visit the Hint Man who will gladly give you tips where to go, but for a fee of course.
|SUPER KAWAII DESU NE?! owait|
|Much better :3|
Unrelated to this paragraph though :/
Eventually, you reach the last phase of Gigyas. As you continue to pray, Paula's prayers only reach out to darkness. But as you continue to pray you first reach out to ***n*on. As you continue, a little more is uncovered **and*n. Then *randon and finally Brandon. And with that, the final hit is dealt to Gigyas and Gigyas dies and becomes nothing. This whole time I myself had been hoping that I would be able to defeat Gigyas and the game itself in a way showed that to me in a really meaningful way. I was on my last legs essentially and through the power of everyone that you've met and even yourself, you're able to defeat Gigyas. As cheesy as it sounds, it really was heart touching to me and something that was awesome to feel and experience.
|A fun and enjoyable game ^^|
That being said, I definitely enjoyed the game overall, but I know some people wouldn't be able to get themselves in the game. The game is really old almost 20 years at this point which can turn off alot of people. But, if you do get the chance to even play a little bit of it, then I definitely recommend you to. If not, there's the sequel Mother 3 which although has never been released in America, has a fan translation somewhere on the internet.
In random unrelated news, I really want to play Blazblue ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ;___;
