Louis Hughes’ Favorite Games of All Time: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)



Final Fantasy, Earthbound, and Chrono Trigger, among others, are what most people remember when asked what was the game that got them into the RPG genre. Not me. I never played those games during their release. So when people ask me that question, my answer would be Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES).

I spent my hard-earned allowance on this game not knowing what to expect from this. They did a great job of introducing a newbie to how RPG games work, though the game did add a few new features to the genre. The biggest being that you can do is defend yourself against attacks. Upon playing the game with a deep and dark story, I learned about HP, leveling up, and resting your party for full health. Aside from the impressive visuals, this game is always remembered for the soundtrack (mainly Forest Maze). When I told my friend about this game he was interested to see how a Mario game is done RPG style. He was so hooked on the game after playing it that he wanted to finish the game after I did. After he beat it, he was shocked to find an ‘easter egg’ of a boss battle from Final Fantasy, to which his maxed out Level 30 party had no problem defeating.
