Justin Lacey is as guilty as the rest of the gamers who profess their love today for Earthbound but failed when it came to helping make the game a success when it was originally released.
I bought it, it was awesome, wish I kept it really.
I was 4 years old, too busy playing Sonic on my Genesis
It was expensive because it came with a lot of stuff
It was a Japanese made RPG... Not many of those ever sold well outside final fantasy. That's why most of them don't even get translated.
I have played earthbound so many time its actually quite embarising, i even have the rom on my pc here at work for lunch time sometimes. I sold my copy not to long ago on ebay & got $90 thats more than i payed for it new. Earthbound 2 a true earthbound 2 i would actually consider buying a freakin wii u for. I have played a ported version of the gameboy earthbound & didnt like it as much, but the original is one of my all time favorites!!!!
The game has a very acquired taste
to be honest the graphic art was somewhat a downside to others.
