The entire Mother series means so much to me I can't even begin to explain it. EarthBound in specific has definitely made me into the person I am today in almost every aspect of my life and personality. Some time in my childhood, I'm not sure where it came from, but a SNES was brought into my home along with great games like Earthworm Jim, Yoshi's Island, Secret of Mana, and most importantly, EarthBound. I played the heck out of all of the games I had, and quickly beat most of them. EarthBound was the last game in the bunch that I had yet to beat. I loaded up the game and I still remember hearing the fantastic opening music for the first time. Somehow I managed to beat the game by myself (well alright, with a little help from the guide), and I can recall playing it for a second time right after I beat it. EarthBound was my first love as I like to say. EarthBound is what got me into playing video games, and in specific Nintendo games and has influenced so many of my life choices. Whenever I was sad as a child, I would just load up EarthBound and live as Ness for a little while,adventuring around with my friends. I joined Starmen.net around 2007 with some other friends that I had played EarthBound with at school and online, and I had the time of my life on the site. It was the biggest bunch of amazing people I had ever gotten to hang out and share content with. Even though I have lost contact with most of my old Starmen friends, that still doesn't keep me from enjoying the Mother fan base. Each year I try and play all three Mother games as a tradition of mine I've kept for years now. My childhood copy of EarthBound is my most important treasure, I will carry it with my where I move until the day I die. (Who am I kidding, I'll probably buried with it).
The Mother series is such a unique and fantastic groups of games all in their own respect, and each deserve to be played by audiences all across the globe. The day EarthBound was released for the WiiU I was ecstatic, and the day Mother 1 was finally released in the west as EarthBound Beginnings I couldn't stop smiling for a solid week. Which brings us to our last game, Mother 3. With such a heavy story and plot that comes along with the game, I think so many people will love embarking on a journey with Lucas and Claus. It's a game that every gamer deserves to play. These are some of the best games that have ever came out of the industry, and we fans hold them with the utmost respect and worship them as godlike creatures almost. You have no idea what these games mean to us. For some of us, these games are our entire life and future, no exaggerations needed.
