I'm going to be honest, I played it on an emulator before I found a real copy. You?
Did you play this game on an SNES or emulator first?
Yo, they aint making money off the game anymore in America. Therefore, throwing money at it while you could be throwing your money at new releases in which the guys what made it make the money off its success is dumb. That said, I've had 10 dollars in Wii Points ready for it, which means really, I've already paid them.
I never got the original, and I would never, because used games are just as bad as stolen games, except that it wastes money that could go into the actual industry.
I found it for $15 at a Best Buy when they were clearing out their Super Nintendo games. I played it on this little 8 inch TV I had set up on my desk, which had a visual distortion in it that magnified the second line of text. There was something so awesome about playing at my desk, though, that I stuck with it the entire game.
I completely disagree that used games are the same as stealing them... I enjoy searching for older copies of my favorite games from the past. I really want to have the original package in the games that I buy now, therefore, I buy all recently released titles new. However, out of print titles from the old days are what I buy used. So no, it is not the same as stealing in all situations.
I played Earthbound on my old SNES back in the day.
