Earthbound is a classic game that many people proablly missed in the U.S. Released in 1995, many people didn't like the innovative style and punch Earthbound had. Put aside the 2D graphics and look at the core of the game. Fresh and new still after 11 years. I have beaten the game 6 times and i still want more. I'm excited for the EBfunktastic gameplay that Starmen.net does every year in the summer. If you have a copy of the SNES game or an emulator, play it again, you find something that you missed before or remember something you forgot. If you missed Earthbound, you missed a milestone in gameing history.
