Why does one have to be better than the other?

TheOptimist459d ago

Nothing wrong in comparing two pieces of art. Comparing is an invariable cause of competition and we all know competition inspires growth.

Yes these are old games, but the argument that one piece of art cannot/should not be compared to another is simply regressive in nature.

Because these games are old, there's no point whatsoever to compare them in an effort to "inspire growth". The only thing its going to do is rally the hardcore fanbase of each title to argue.

Because one is from Nintendo and the other is not. There is a certain need to rewrite the past in a way that appeals to a particular fan base.

Your point is moot: neither were directly made by Nintendo, yet both were made under their umbrella during the SNES days.

They're both great games of their era, and I can see why one would be considered better than the other without any kind of appropriation placed on it in the interest of bias to support one's agenda.

Earthbound is a Nintendo trademark. Chrono Trigger is a Square one.

Yeah. Godmars290: you're a little bit off though.
Earthbound was indeed made directly by Nintendo. Satoru Iwata himself stepped in and did some critical programming for it. Chrono Trigger appeared on the Super Nintendo in its first release, but was developed wholly by Squaresoft (now Square Enix) and even went on to get re-releases on PlayStation platforms. ^^;

I mean at the end of the day it doesn't really matter. Earthbound, Chrono Trigger and even Final Fantasy 3 (VI) are 3 utterly fantastic RPG's on the SNES. You could make an argument for any of those three to be one of the best RPGs out there.

You're playing with fire, friend. That said, both are excellent games and are still very much worth playing if you have the means to.

I think CT is undisputably better but I have no urge to replay it. I always want to replay EB
