Shigesato Itoi, Giygas, and Boobies
An extremely common thing I see on message boards and e-mails is:
I want to get into the Mother / EarthBound games but don’t know where to start. What do you recommend?
So I thought it’d be nice to make a short page about the topic to make everything nice and clear. I present to you The Newcomer’s Guide to the EarthBound / Mother series!
Now I know a lot of people will disagree with where I put MOTHER 1. I spent a lot of time trying to decide where to put MOTHER 1, and in the end that seemed the best place to me, but at the very least I want to bring this point across:
I feel like I’ve left some stuff out of that page, so let me know if you think I should add anything else. And if you disagree with my suggestions, please feel free to chime in with your own order of games!
Basically, I want to try to share the series with more people, so send this suggestion page far and wide! If you ever see anyone ask which game they should start with, give them this handy link for reference 😀
EDIT: I’ve since updated the page to incorporate some of the readers’ suggestions. Keep ’em coming!
