EarthBound turns 25 years old this summer. Overlooked on its initial release in 1995, the quirky RPG soon gained a following that increased exponentially year after year. It now boasts fans in the millions and may be THE most popular “cult classic” game of all time. We’re still waiting for the needle to move on Mother 3, however.
The musical scores for Chrono Trigger and its pseudo-sequel Chrono Cross happen to be the greatest video game soundtracks of all time. If you doubt it or you’ve somehow never heard them, they’re always on YouTube so you can play and judge for yourself. But there’s little room for debate in my book. They sound…..so…..good.
