An Under-Appreciated Game That Needs More Attention

Come on, if you've played Super Smash Brothers Brawl, I GUARANTEE YOU you've seen these two before:
From what the character select says, you know that their names are Ness and Lucas. But I'm pretty sure 75% of you have NO IDEA of anything further than that.
This is where I come in to give this franchise more attention.
Ah yes, Earthbound. One of the many under-rated games out there. You've probably seen assist trophies and items from Earthbound in Brawl and such. Some of the items include the Franklin Badge, Mr. Saturn, and even Porky, a boss battle. Remember the ruined zoo, everyone?
Anyway, the plotline of each game is different. MOTHER and Earthbound shared many similarities, but MOTHER 3 was a game all its own.
The main idea of the three games is about children born with strange powers known as PSI that must use them to do something significant to each game.
SPOILERS FOR MOTHER 3:
SPOILERS FOR EARTHBOUND:
Along with typical RPG-Style Standards, there's some twists:
-Each attack has different levels of power: PSI Alpha, PSI Beta, PSI Gamma, and PSI Omega. Omega is the strongest level, and PSI Rockin' Omega and PSI Starstorm Omega are tied for the strongest attack in the game.
-Items can be equipped for different damage levels, but rather than a sword and armor, you have...a frying pan and a ribbon? A baseball bat and a baseball cap? Rather than fire scrolls, you have...BOTTLE ROCKETS???
-Your next-door neighbor is one of the main antagonists???
-You have to save a girl from a cult obsessed with the color blue?
-Rid a town of its zombie problem?
-Fight a giant talking pile of vomit?
-Who names a game character Poo???
-And of course, the almighty Kraken...
-Monkeys with a bubble gum addiction...
Yeah, weird game, awesome plot and such.
I hope this blog helps more people learn about and want to try this amazing game. This is a very under-rated game that needs more attention.
