I enjoyed this game a lot. Haven't played a game with this much SOVL in a long time. Everything, from soundtrack, to presentation, to story has been very fun. It reminds me a lot of Mother 3.
Any other games with SOVL like this?
Might finish Earthbound because of it.

        Basil has extreme codependency and abandonment issues, but he's definitely not canonically written to be gay. If you don't mind a minor spoiler - he is aware of Sunny's crush on Aubrey and displays absolutely no jealousy at all - which, if he was gay for Sunny, is completely out of character for his prior-mentioned traits.

        Either way, stop being a bitch and threatening to drop a video game because there's a gay in it.

      If you dropped it at that point (when the story was reaching its climax) it probably wasn't for you in the first place. You don't play it for the gameplay, you play it for the story - and if you're not hooked by Jawsum, you're literally never going to be hooked.

    I don't get why all these games that are nothing like Earthbound, and just has some superficial homage at best, are being compared so damn hard to Earthbound.

    Citizens of Earth is like the only game that actually play like Earthbound. And amusingly enough it's almost never actually mentioned whenever people discuss "Earthbound inspired" games. Which can only really mean that when people say "Earthbound inspired" they aren't actually referencing anything that's actually like Earthbound. Which is fucking retarded.

          Why does everyone call him a Hispanick? Both Kel and Henry aren't hispanic names and as far as I remember it doesn't even take place in the real world. Nor does the game give any indication of them being Mexican.

      It's because... The game is great on terms of story, but has too much filler. Even if the locations are not particularly boring, you really don't give a shit about the "wacky earthbound" moments in the game because you want to know how the story ends, and the "wacky earthbound" moments make up 90% of the game.

        Some of them have some kind of subconscious basis on reality that's fun to think about afterwards, but it's really vague.

    A part of Omori I particularly liked is that it captures nostalgia really, really well without leaning heavily on some particular experience. It doesn't litter the script with "ah, remember [90s thing]?", it says "remember how things felt back then?"
    And it's not just nostalgia for Sunny's childhood, but the teenage years too.

          OMORI is the only game to make me feel the way I feel about it. It's made me cry three times now - two times genuinely sobbing - and no other piece of media has ever made me produce even a single tear. As for fanfictions, I've already written one and I'm working on writing a much longer one - I played the game a *year* ago and my feelings are just as intense now as they were back then.

          Alas, most fanfictions suck.

              Zoomers live in a hellish dystopia where they are less connected with the people around them than ever before. Social media, the internet, and the state of modern society have completely fucked up Zoomers and their childhood/how they grow up.

              It's no wonder they love the game. It idealizes and depicts a time when you could actually be friends with someone and you had a reason to go outside and you're not looking at hardcore gigaporn at age 9 because your mom gave you a tablet.

              Like the other anon said, zoomers experience the game as basically secondhand nostalgia for something they couldn't experience. An era where PTA moms hadn't systemically stripped children of the ability to do anything other than sit at home safely within their parents' line of sight, and parents of their right to occasionally let their kids have human lives, and thus an era where kids could go out and make friends and be with each other outside of school.
              The concept of young love not founded on precocious sexual interest, of having friends more than a year from their age, of having friends that they just visit whenever, of shooting the shit in person instead of over a dehumanizing social media platform, it's all foreign to them, but they can tell that's what humans are supposed to be doing. So it's intoxicating to them.

                It's absolutely a western thing. Even in nice neighborhoods, the specter of "stranger danger" hangs over every "responsible" parent's mind. The idea of kids just hanging out has totally vanished from the middle class, and most of the lower class, in only a couple generations, and wealthy kids have always lived in their own world with an unhealthily small amount of social interaction.
                In short, "responsible parenting" is now perfectly curating and controlling your child's life.
                Within twenty years, the concept of the latchkey kid is going to be looked back on with even more horror and shock than the concept of child labor was twenty years ago.

                The worst part is, even if all the parents in the west suddenly, magically realized that they were fucking their kids up by making them live entirely controlled lives, the kids would still be fucked. Some deep part of them realizes what's missing, but they can't act on it. They lack real-life social skills, they feel deeply and innately out of place outside of their homes. It's now easier for them to just default to their online hangouts than it is for them to go to the effort of trying the real thing. Sure, maybe some would bounce back, but how many? Not enough to form coherent social groups.
                An entire generation is doomed to the same kind of crushing loneliness once only reserved for the starkest autists, the type of people who would've found Ganker on their own in years past.

          unlike most other JRPGs that are set in fantasy worlds, the fantasy aspect of Omori is just in Sunny's head. Faraway town is pretty much just a nostalgic recollection of a 90s-early 2000s american suburb. That added to the fact that the game did portraying grief very well where none of the characters want to bring up how affected they were by the incident (this one hits too hard for me)

          • 1 month ago

            Adding onto this, even towards the very end of the game we don't get full closure of how Hero, Kel, and Aubrey truly feel towards the incident out to Sunny. All we get are stories told from second point of views like Kel at the cemetary and Sunny viewing Hero at Mari's piano. Stuff like this is just very similar to how real people deal with grief, where they could go their entire lives not telling the full truth to even their close friends

    if you want to revisit earthbound, try giving mother 1 a chance. the story of the main villain is surprisingly really good, combat is dogshit and encounter rate makes it miserable but otherwise it's full of charm. there's a ton of small areas to explore that can easily be missed which is neat. if you don't want to bother with the shit gameplay mechanics then try using an easy ring mod (there's one in the mother 1+2 translation patch), it's makes the game a lot less of a chore

      I threw the HERO one in a room with MARI and they actually went on a roleplay adventure and explored Blackspace. It was very cool until the AI decided HERO needs a super saiyan form named SUNSHINE and a stand named [SUNLIGHT].

                it doesn’t even have to be much pubic hair, it just have to be like a small pink tuft to match with her tight pink pussy

    The friendship portrayed in the game is extremely idealized and unrealistic. If I deliberately ignored my friend for four years after some bad shit happened, we wouldn't be besties again after just hanging out with each other for a day.

    Does this game actually have any redeeming qualities other than being made by "le based asian weeb grill"? It seems like most of the game is a boring slog. Am I just not the intended audience or what
