Perhaps for their time they were good, but nowadays when I look at the DS versions, their graphics dont appear to have come on very far at all. Even the SNES mana games have better graphics than the modern day Harvest Moons/SNES Harvest Moons

Erm. I don't disagree with that, flick your eyes back to my last post and you'll see I'm no fan of the more recent 2d HM visual stylings, either. And Secret of Mana is one of the most beautiful 2d games out there, I'm not sure 'even' is the right word! I must say that I'm personally as equally fond of HM SNES's look, though. When it comes to matters of taste, discussions on what is 'better' swiftly become irrelevant. Mana is certainly more sophisticated, but I struggle to think of many 16-bit era games that can rival its looks, and like any game I judge HM's art on its own merits anyway.

I'm not trying to make you disagree, I'm just proving HM graphics are nothing special at all.

This is becoming weird, so last post from me on this, or I'll end up repeating myself in the hope it sinks in. As said in my last two posts: I like the look, it's got what I consider to be a nice aesthetic, I reckon the ingame daylight changes in particular are pretty awesome. Art is unprovable and subjective, technique is only half the story, and Secret Of Mana is irrelevant to HM SNES in that the former makes me like the latter no less. To help you understand, I'll use a closer example: Streetwise is not on a visual par with Braid, but it still has its own artistic merit and simplistic style; its own look, and better looking games out there don't undermine what you did achieve with it.

Yes but you have to admit, Mana is better than HM

I hardly see any differance between the first two maybe the first has nicer colors. The third and fourth screen shots look a lot better imho much better use of colours. But the 3d harvest moons rule them all...

We're a decade too old for this Adam, sorry.

In other news: I forgot one! I've recently been playing the first Lufia game online with a friend via ZSNES, taking it in turns to have a go etc. With Skype on in the background, it's quite similar to that communal 'sitting on the sofa and playing through a game'. Micro Machines is good for that, too, as are most multiplayer games. If only Worms SNES weren't so much poorer than its PC counterpart.

Lol! The funny part is I sent you a rom with the sequel to it (Seiken Densetsu 3) a while back. Secret of Mana that they're refering too can be found on the virtual console though. I prefer Seiken Densetsu 3 though because it's more polished. But Secret of Mana devinitely had better boss fights, the ones of SD3 were just too stationairy, you never had to dodge them
But all of the newer Mana games literally suck. I'm not a harvest moon fan myself, I never had a reason to like the series, but if you were to compare ANY Mana game for DS to any Harvest Moon game for DS, Harvest Moon would win. If you figured in Dawn of Mana, Children of Mana, and Heroes of Mana into a Mana-Harvest Moon comparison Adam, the recently terrible Mana games would lose... If you just did the Goldy Oldies, then yeah, Mana would win.
That's just the terrible direction the series is headed in... Square's seemed really unsure witch to go with the series, I just hope for the best...

I would like to play Earthbound. For some reason I found a Let's Play for it on Youtube, I watched a few minutes and it looks like it could be a fun game.

Earthbound was a very good RPG. I liked that a lot too. My friend finished it but I never did.

And I still like Harvest Moon and its graphics

Earthbound is an awesome game. It's hilarious and exciting. Busy playing Mother 3's fan translation right now.

I like Super Mario RPG, the Donkey Kong Country games, Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, Chrono Trigger, and some others I can't remember, I guess.

Never got around to it. I don't bother illegally downloading ROM's unless I'm going to die if I don't play the game.
