I find Earthbound really interesting in the fact that it's an RPG with a modern setting, but that's about it. I've played through it all the way (Earthbound 0 almost all of the way) and I'm working my way through Mother 3. While Earthbound has its charm, Mother 3 does have a better story IMO. You sort of feel more invested in the characters in Mother 3 than you do Earthbound, and that's the sole reason I want to finish Mother 3.

I don't think i got bored playing an RPG faster than when i tried to play earthbound, i was hitting fastforward on my emulator like crazy when i was playing it awhile back and just dropped it around the time i got to....the orphan kid (iirc its jeff).
It was a few months later that I picked up SMT:Devil survivor and Etrian Odyssey 4 when i realized Atlus is RPG god
I got into the Etrian Odyssey series when I tried 4 and dang is the Etrian Odyssey series good. One of the best RPG series I've played. Shame not too many people seem to know about it.
waiting for SMWC2 to come out since 1995
