>>5147062>it's more about tradition than Nostalgia
Yet you complain that Mother 3 relies on nostalgia.
There is nothing wrong with having a different concept or scenario. Besides, Mother 3 also has the modernized city and New Pork City.>How? Porky seems more obsessed with Ness and fucking with people
Exactly. I mean, Porky has literally a "nostalgia corridor", with elements of both Mother 1 and 2, and has the "16 melodies" song.
The fact he's obsessed with Ness to the point of having his posessions framed, and has a movie theatre displaying Mother 2, I'd say it's pretty clear.>Giygas and ?
There are quite a number of references to Mother 1 in 2, The Starmen, the Flying Birds, lots of music cues.
Mother 3 also has its share of references, for example the seashell houses of the Magypsies resemble the houses on M1's Magicant and the seashell poles.
Some enemies also only appear in Mother 1 and 3, like the Titani.
All 3 games are connected, and are full of references of callbacks, even if in weird ways.
