Hardcore Gamer: If I were to say that I’m a fan of RPGs, I’d be lying. Rather, I’m a fan of Paper Mario and Persona 3. I’m a fan of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. But above all else, I’m a fan of Earthbound. I can’t think of a single game that charmed me more in my formative years than Earthbound; I even befriended a kid I didn’t like when that game came out to gain access to his copy. No game since has managed to be quite as surreal or trippy as Nintendo’s oddest RPG. Needless to say, when the first Citizens of Earth trailer dropped into my life, I was pretty excited.
I’ve been playing Citizens of Earth for the last week or so now, and after ten hours of playtime I don’t know if I’ll finish it.
