So it's painfully obvious I recently got into the Mother/EarthBound series. Beat EarthBound last week and I want to play the other games... but I don't know which to play first and I don't know if order matters at all.
I want to play Mother 1 since it's the prequel and (because I don't know any plot things) don't want any possible hints in 3 revealed that may have carried over from 1 (like, "obviously" Porky is the antagonist of 3 and he came from 2). I also don't really want to go into 3 first just to go into a lesser quality (visuals-wise) game right after.
I may have answered my own question, but I want to know what others who may have played both games feel.
