Favorite Classic Game: Earthbound

Quote: Earthbound for the SNES was really one of the first games that had an ending that surprised me. Traditional RPGs have you just grind away to level up enough to beat the last boss and watch the ending. To me, Earthbound was the first game to ever acknowledge the player itself in the game world. The game breaks the fourth wall and you actually beat the game on the merits of your efforts and relationships with other characters, not your combined strength and level.

It was refreshing to see a game break the mold and deliver a real experience, not just a story inside a cookie cutter design scheme. I’d trade in all the HD graphics in the world for a game that actually takes me by surprise and rewards me for actually paying attention to it.
