Mother 3


This game has an emotion that is much different from the first two games. Mother 1 (or Earthbound Zero) had an ending that was eerie and dramatic, but it had the weakest ending. That's no surprise for an 80's RPG. Earthbound (Mother 2) had the a really creepy and scary ending, and that ending final boss gave me chills. In Mother 3, the ending was so much stronger. I was literally crying at the end of this game. It's a shame this game is so underrated.

This is more than a video game, it's a work of art. Normally deaths in video games now are brutal and harsh, but this was different. This death took time to give us an emotion. I'm actually glad this game is underrated because it wouldn't be the same. Everyone would just give us the ending and we wouldn't get as much emotion. This is a game worth playing.

This game is the definition of sadness I mean here's an overview of the story hinawa is killed by what's supposed to be a friendly creature that the pig mask have changed flint after finding this out beats up the villagers and is sent to prison in front of Claus and lucas then Claus go after the drago that killed his mother to avenge her and is killed then porky revives him brain washes him and practically turns him into a cyborg and during the final battle lucas by himself battles Claus but just can't attack while Claus is beating him to death then flint protects lucas and trys to get Claus to remember him and suffers major damage from Claus but hinawa who is spirt know gets Claus to remember his who he really is and after he fires a lighting bolt at lucas knowing about the Franklin badge and comments suicide HOW CAN U NOT CRY FROM ANY OF THAT this game show that Nintendo isn't just for kids and that mother 3 is one of the best games of all time

Deserves this spot. Made me realize the horrid truth that were all just slaves and zombies to evil as humans... But at the same time shows you how love can save anything from corruption. And family love is the most important thing in you're life. And to look at the world and try to distance yourself from evil. 10/10

Fantastic plot, fantastic music, just an all around fantastic game. One of the best I've ever played. It's a crime that this game hasn't been released outside Japan

Oh, Mother 3. Mother and Earthbound were emotional games, but Número 3 tops them all. Let's start with the fact that a little boy is forced to go through serious emotional trauma when his mother dies. Then, his father goes temporarily berserk. And his brother goes missing. THEN, after going through some other sad as #%€ moments, he finds out that his brother was killed, resurrected as a cyborg, then forced to work with Porky, the main villain of the game (not to mention Earthbound). And when he snaps back into reality, he sees what he,s done and COMMITS CHILD SUICIDE. Wow, Nintendo. Just... Wow.

This proves that graphics aren't needed to make an awesome game. This game touches your heart in such a powerful way you can't help but cry in the end. - ClicheUsername69

$&@#% pokey. I've never played the game much cause it was a Japanese rom but I have one question... Why doesn't he dieD:

I literally can't watch chapter 6 or the end of this game without being brought to tears. Its literally so sad.

I don't want to spoil the game (like the guy under me did) so I'm just gonna let you play

I've never played anything sadder than this. And I've played a ton of games.

Anyone who voted for anything else than Mother 3 has not played Mother 3.

Lucas is my favorite character of all time. - Mother3fan

I am appalled that this was bumped down to #2.

And to think this comes from one of the most usually happy games

This game can make you cry within the first hour, and doesn't stop there. It often tosses in reminders of what happend, and the end is super heavy. It's a shame it was never properly released to the rest of the world.

Can't think of anything that would be a sadder ending.

Poor Claus he died when he thought he was masked man

Try naming Hinawa the name of your actual mother, Claus as your actual brother, and Lucas after yourself. That's how you really start to get emotional.

"Lucas doesn't know what to do anymore."

The last 10 minutes of the game destroyed me and made me cry like a little girl. This game in definetelly one of my favorite games of all time. It's a shame that Nintendo doesen't release the game out of Japan, so more people can enjoy this amazing game.

I honestly haven't played yet,but,this sounds like a winner to me.Gosh the feels...

Claus dies then reanimated to be pokeys slave robut at the end he kills himelf and your mother dies chapter 3 is depressing too salsa gets kidnapped by the pigmasks salsa is forced to do what fassad says or else he gets shocked and the ending is sad too - dinosaur

This is an overrated piece of trash game.


Definitely the saddest game ever. Lucas' mother Hinawa dies on the first chapter, when Claus (his twin brother) and him are probably not older than 10 years old. We see a monkey getting abused by a bad guy who brainwashes the people of an innocent and rural village. And the final boss... the final boss is your brother that went missing for 3 years straight being manipulated by the villain Porky.
