I really loved Earthbound, I never knew it existed until I randomly played it on an emulator. If they released it on the Wii market, I would buy it. I believe I tried to play through it twice, the first time I stopped because I got distracted by something else, and the second time I believe I got to the last boss, couldn't beat him for some reason, got angry, and quit.
One of my favorite parts was the Runaway 5, gotta love the Blues Brothers parody. At the time, I kept a save state from each time they played in the game, just so I could listen to them over and over again.
