Point & Counter Point 3: Earthbound

This is the third in a series of ‘dueling cblog editorials’ I've been doing with Aerox. You can check out his counterpoint HERE.

Point & Counterpoint 1: Video Game Violence

Violence Doesn’t Affect Gamers

Violence Affects Gamers

For any old RPG fan, the SNES is the Holy Grail; its RPG library is arguably the best to grace the gaming world. From a trilogy of Final Fantasy games, a piece of Square-Nintendo co-developed genius, and an RPG that gave you a reason to buy a multitap, they were all gaming excellence. In this point and counter point, we will discuss which RPG we feel is the best of the bunch, you can view Aerox’s point here.

Due to its unique storyline, nature, and art design, Earthbound is the best RPG that was seen on the SNES. And as much as I loved Chrono Trigger, it is the superior game. If you are an RPG fan and you haven’t at least played through the intro sequence to Earthbound, shame on you, fire up and emulator and get cracking, you owe it to yourself to at least try the game.
