I didn't expect Karras' voice to sound... quite how it did. I don't think I want to meet with any of his machines after overhearing his presentation.

Well, I feel old now. I realized that today it has been four years and a week since I joined NL... Four years later, maybe I'm a bit smarter. Almost an entire console generation has occurred, I've fought with people who I'll never know in real life with words over a form of entertainment, set sail on a Deserted Island Vacation Getaway, discovered the source of Pepto Bismol, and became a denizen of a chat full of awesome people. Seems like it's been a good few years, and may many more come.

Regarding your question, I've had the unique experience of playing both Undertale and Earthbound at the same time. I've beat Undertale and I'm still working on Earthbound, but I've been told that I'm close to the end.

I don't think you should have any issues playing either one before the other. I've spent more time with Earthbound than Undertale, but I don't think the shorter time playing Undertale is indicative of its quality. The are different, but somewhat similar experiences in different ways. For me, Undertale did not make Earthbound less enjoyable, nor did I find Earthbound enhancing Undertale.

In my opinion, what Earthbound and Undertale shares are the unique gameplay settings, unique enemies, memorable characters as well both being RPGs. I would of not been surprised to see enemies in each others game. They both have that unique flair, from facing off with a taxi cab (Earthbound) or making a plane blush (Undertale).

The main difference to me is the combat system. Earthbound has the traditional-like RPG turnbased system with physical attacks, physic (magic), and various items. While Undertale can be played like a traditional RPG, you can actually talk your way out of most battles, enabling you to spare your enemies. You still get gold for equipment, but no experience. You can stay at level 1 for the entire game. The main difference in the combat is what you do during your enemies attack phase. You soul is represented by a small heart and you have to dodge the attacks and some of those attacks are close to "bullet hell" found in space shooters.

I think you'll enjoy both in either order. I'm fairly new to both games, but I hope that helps out.

And I'm sorry to hear about your hands. Get well soon!

To everyone who has played both Earthbound and Undertale, would any of you recommend playing one before the other? Does playing Earthbound first potentially enhance what makes Undertale great? Is Undertale a progression from Earthbound to the point that it makes Earthbound less enjoyable? Is the comparison only surface level?

I fell of my bike and wrecked my palms (mostly the lower section, and far worse on my right hand). Playing games is probably going to be pretty difficult. No signs/indications of any broken/fractured/damaged bones or any other serious injury though, thankfully.
