So I've been playing Earthbound lately... I'm having a great time. It's still one of my favorite games of all-time and I'm glad to see it re-released after all these years. Anyway, while spamming the Miiverse with goofy comments and minor spoilers, I've seen a lot of positive reactions from people who never played the game back in the day. It's gotten a lot of attention which I hope Nintendo notices because maybe they can release the rest of the Mother series in North America already.
So let me get to the question. To those new to Earthbound, does the game match the hype or are you underwhelmed? And while I'm here, to grizzled vets of Earthbound like myself, does it still hold up?
By the way, I still think it's awesome.
