Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 24th, 2012 | EarthBound, Polls

Many, many years ago when I first started getting EarthBound.Net underway, the very first poll I made was “What is your favorite town/location (in EarthBound)”. The site was still so new that I had to go bug people on ICQ to get responses 😯 You can see the results of that old poll here.

Now, 13+ years later, it’s time to revisit that poll! So, what’s your favorite town/location in EarthBound?

Lost Underworld, if only for the music and the change in perspective.

16bitKaiju said on Jun. 24, 2012

Mine has to be Zombie Threed , but since it wasn’t on the list I went for happy happy village, I just like the creepy atmosphere it had and happy happy village also has that.

Poe said on Jun. 24, 2012

Why was Threed left out in your original poll?

Barbaloot said on Jun. 24, 2012

And this is where I would put my Threed Vote…

IF I HAD ONE!

(Happy Happy Village for me I guess)

EarthBoundRules said on Jun. 24, 2012

So hard to decide between Onett and Twoson… I went with Twoson because that’s where I would like to live if these places really existed. 🙂

FZed said on Jun. 24, 2012

@Poe
Scaraba is missing as well for some reason.

Pwesty said on Jun. 24, 2012

@Poe @FZed
I can’t speak for Mato but those places probably just got no votes.

resetsurvivor said on Jun. 24, 2012

This was hard. I stared at all the locations for 10 minutes before deciding on Onett. I love the arcade, the meteor, the treehouse, and most importantly home. Everytime I get a new member of the Chosen Four I take them back to Onett to show them ‘my’ hometown.

BigDream said on Jun. 24, 2012

Maybe Twoson

Gaffer Tape said on Jun. 24, 2012

This was very, very hard. Thankfully I wouldn’t have voted for Threed or Scaraba. But any of those early locations are places I love. So I was thinking really hard between Onett and Twoson. I love the music, and nothing beats getting to explore Mother 2’s world for the first time. Those places are so exciting and contained things I had never seen in video game worlds like… traffic! But I ultimately went with Happy Happy Village. I love the idea behind it. It never ceases to crack me up. That in itself sums up the Mother series for me.

TheDreaminghawk said on Jun. 24, 2012

Dalaam. Something about the music, the simple dungeon, and the free hotel
(That you can’t access if you are trying to skip the stupid photographer) makes it feel like a fun place for me to visit off and on when I need yo get lightning-fast EXP (Due to pink cloud until I can go beat up fobbies later in the game)

Cactusfriend said on Jun. 24, 2012

Threed 🙁

Ness1985 said on Jun. 24, 2012

Onett, because it’s my hometown :3
It was tied between Twoson, Happy Happy Village, Snow Wood, Saturn Valley, Fourside and Summers. Oh, and where’s Threed??

PK Rockin said on Jun. 24, 2012

I love how when there is only one vote for something, it says “1 votes” instead of “1 vote”.

Earthbounder said on Jun. 24, 2012

I got to say Dalaam. I like it the most when you first get there and can only play as poo. It seemed awesome as a kid. It had a fairy tale like meaning to it. Some far off land that looks like it floats and a special prince with psychic powers. Yup good ol Dalaam.

SeriousKano said on Jun. 24, 2012

No Threed? Oh well, Happy Happy Village is fine, too.

Erikku8 said on Jun. 24, 2012

I’m in the minority. (I voted Twoson.)

Anonymous said on Jun. 24, 2012

this is all wrong…MOONSIDE!

EarthBound015 said on Jun. 24, 2012

🙁 No Zombie Threed? That’s my favorite. Since it’s not there, Lost Underworld it is.

KingDarian said on Jun. 24, 2012

Woo, Fourside~

CrouchingMouse said on Jun. 24, 2012

I had to say Onett. Having played Super Smash Bros. before EarthBound, Onett was definitely the “face” of EB to me for a long time. Also I’m really fond of small town suburban settings in games since it’s something you don’t see often, and it sort of reminds me of my childhood.

Amy said on Jun. 24, 2012

Summers for me. It just felt like the four were on vacation, and the music was just nice and relaxing.

kenisu said on Jun. 24, 2012

Well, no Threed, but that’s my favorite… both with and without zombies. Twoson and Happy Happy Village are tied for a close second.

Kyosuke said on Jun. 24, 2012

THREED

meleemario said on Jun. 24, 2012

Where is Magicant? That is my all time favorite place in the game! Oh well, I picked the Lost Underworld instead.

tapi said on Jun. 25, 2012

moo nsid emoons idemo onside.

SSBMaster11 said on Jun. 25, 2012

“Snow Wood”? Not “Winters”? Also, no “Magicant”, or “Moonside”, or “Scaraba”, or “Cave of the Past”? Not even “Threed”? Come on, that one is even a main town! You missed a lot of places on this list…

Winters would actually be my second, anyway, next to Happy-Happy Village. I don’t really know why, I just really like it.

ebroxas72 said on Jun. 25, 2012

the only reason for picking
Tenda Village is because there is no Threed.
for me of course

ness2991 said on Jun. 25, 2012

Mine was Lost Underworld only because of the Sacred Sanctuary there. When you see your thoughts projected on the walls… man that’s an amazing moment.

Also, Scaraba’s town theme was one of my favorite songs in the game.

Phi said on Jun. 25, 2012

Wow.
I made it so Saturn Valley and Onett had the same number of votes.

Radiostorm said on Jun. 25, 2012

Threed by a mile, but Onett comes in second place I suppose. I like how both cities have day/night versions.

Porky Means Business said on Jun. 25, 2012

Cave of the Past.

Arekussu said on Jun. 25, 2012

where is threed? :s

marth said on Jun. 25, 2012

Saturn Valley all the way!

Q said on Jun. 25, 2012

This list is missing some places, like Magicant.

Lollita said on Jun. 25, 2012

Fourside has awesome music and town plan.

The Great Morgil said on Jun. 25, 2012

Twoson, cuz it reminds me of the town i grew up in.

MaxMcAzuki said on Jun. 25, 2012

Wow I had such a hard time deciding, I love all those places so much D: In the end I picked Snow Wood because Tony.

If we count ones not in the poll though, my favourite is easily Magicant.

Pinkle Pickle said on Jun. 26, 2012

Snow Woods,it has some of the best music of the Game.

Anonymous said on Jun. 26, 2012

Moonside was the BEST. Wait, that’s not an option?

Kobo said on Jun. 26, 2012

Moonside was the BEST. Wait, that’s not an option?

ZombiePosessor said on Jun. 27, 2012

Well, since Moonside isn’t on the list, I’d say Twoson, just because it gave me that first “Hey, it’s a new town!” feel. And then the game gave me so many more feels… forever.

Earthbounder said on Jun. 27, 2012

I change my mind imma say onett well ness’ house at the end of the game it makes me cry

Earthbounder said on Jun. 27, 2012

I’m 21 I was like 5 or 6 when I played earthbound for the first time but ness’ house reminded me of mine. Yup good ol earthbound 😉

Sun Braid said on Jun. 27, 2012

Wut. No Threed. What’s up with that? I guess I’ll resort to Happy Happy Village then.

lucki_vibrato said on Jun. 27, 2012

I like Twoson and Onett.
My vote is in Twoson.

PSInesslove93 said on Jun. 28, 2012

so hard… i love summers, twoson, and fourside…
but i’d have to say summers then.

Von Krieger said on Jun. 28, 2012

Moonside!

Justin said on Jun. 28, 2012

Winters, but certainly not because of Snow Wood, so I guess I’m not voting.

Nick said on Jun. 29, 2012

THREED

EnnuiKing said on Jun. 30, 2012

Lately, I’ve actually been partial to Scaraba. I love the music and the dialog there. “There are snakes in the sack!”

Hameba said on Jun. 30, 2012

I always enjoyed the atmosphere of Snow Wood, I would love to live there. (I live in Canada, so hopefully I wouldn’t mind the cold)

TheGorgeousGamer said on Jul. 1, 2012

Magicant!! I mean you could turn the level pink! I would play just to do that and try to leave it that color! Lol

Ninten=ness said on Jul. 5, 2012

sAtUrN vAlLey iS sO aWeSoMe! dInG!

MrSaturn03 said on Jul. 7, 2012

Fourside. 1.Because it’s when I REALLY started getting into the game.
2. It’s when things get more serious.
Oh and 2.5, the music and stage in SSBM is cool 😛

GreatNess said on Jul. 8, 2012

Saturn Valley For the Win

Herobrine said on Jul. 19, 2012

Giygas’ Lair has always been my personal favorite.

boldtenda said on Jul. 21, 2012

My favorite is Magicant, but since it wasn’t a choice I chose Summers.

jinxkatty7 said on Jul. 21, 2012

This sounds a little weird but I like Happy Happy Villages’s music. (Even though lots of people think its more disturbing than Giygas music) Also I like some of the Blue jokes. (“Blew, blew.I’ll go practice my whistling somewhere else.” Or “Green, green. Sorry I’m new to the system.” <– something like that. I'm not to accurate with the lines 🙁

TheWiseSage said on Aug. 8, 2012

Dem Fourside fanboys. Come one guys, everyone knows the Tenda Village is the way to go.

Apple Kid said on Oct. 6, 2012

I couldn’t choose it, but the Cave of the Past… in the present, because of the music.

you can not grasp the true form of my username said on Nov. 3, 2012

fourside beacuse of the music

Kraken of the sea said on Dec. 15, 2012

Saturn Valley! b@iNG!

misterdigi35 said on May. 31, 2013

I voted for Snow Wood, but Onett or Threed would definitely be my second choices.
