Earthbound's gameplay is pretty much identical to jrpgs that predate it by a decade.

i mean it came out the same year as final fantasy 6 and yet the gameplay is simpler than ff1

yeah too bad nobody was smart enough to pick up on that auto exp thing for enemies way too low of a level for you

Good job! I, Viewtifulboy, declare you the CHAMPION!

so its a positive thing that the game requires so much grinding that they had to make it easier for you?

As much as I like the game, I have to admit the amount of grinding that you have to do at certain points is pretty insane.
Shin Megami Tensei isn't for you, then.

Funny that you mention it, since it really was the story that turned me off from Persona 3. Maybe I should give it another try...

dude
it doesn't require grinding
sorry you're intercourse ing poop at rpgs made for kids
the only sections i could even imagine needing grinding are
- the fight before frank because you just started the game
- the area before you rescue paula

if you needed to grind outside of htat you're poop sorry pal

Well the game took more grinding than that but it certainly wasn't impossibly difficult for me to reach a desired level for a boss fight

Your problem with the game according to your other post is that its gameplay is identical to RPGs made 10 years prior to its release.

What's the problem with this? Especially considering most post-1995 RPGs are complete dogpoop. Especially post-2005 RPGs. It's a genre that is extremely difficult to innovate well with.

because there was a hell of a lot of innovation between 1985 and 1995 and earthbound ignored all of that
