I have a ton of nostalgia-induced love for this game. Playing it with my dad as a kid is still a standout memory for me, and I’ve been wanting to revisit it forever. That’s probably why I spend over three hours playing Super Mario RPG during my first day with it! Well, that and the fact that my kid loves watching me play this one while I read the dialogue to her, and I do a mean Bowser voice!
I got farther that I expected to in that time, and I’m wondering if the game is shorter than I remember. The combat is still fun and the upscaler isn’t throwing off attack timings at all. Music is fantastic and the humor is just great. Good start to a good game.
