Earthbound is a game for the Super Nintendo that was made in 1995. It is renowned for having good graphics for the time, being ahead of its time for RPGs, and being hilarious at times.


It has an awesome system for everything. When you enter a battle with an enemy, you see them on the screen and if they approach you from behind or you approach them from behind you get a starting attack. The battle system may be basic but it works so well, you can either attack, use Psi, or use an item. Psi is basically magic that your characters will use. During battle many funny things can happen, when I was battling an old man one of his turns was rambling about his problems with young people!


The story is that Giygas is going to take over, which you find out after  meteorite falls from the sky and you are woken up. Giygas has traveled back in time and it is your job to defeat him. Buzz Buzz who was the future earths savior and is now a bug comes and tells you that the future earth is fucked and you have to save it. There are 8 points in the earth that will give you enough power to defeat Giygas.


The whole game has little jokes about everything and you burst out laughing. For example, the Chief Policeman tells you that you should stay home and play Nintendo games.
