Also, its funny to see the Japanese hate the post-64 Star Fox games (Adventures, Assault, Command) and Metroid Other M as much as the West does.

Okay. However, that Mother 3 score is not that bad (above 8.0 if there was a Western equivalent). The reason why there is some divide among Japanese fans for Mother 3 is because they waited since 1994 for Mother 3, and when it finally came it was not leaps and bounds more epic than Mother 2, and also due to the game being a bit more different than the previous two games and for it being "depressing".

If you want an idea of a game that received a brutal score:

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn received only 41 points, with a grade of (E).

Interesting. People on the internet are always spouting off on how Japanese gamers hate FPS games and thus hate the Prime games, but Prime 3 and Prime 1 Wii scored pretty high.

Lol at Other M.
Eternally waiting for that SG 360 patch...

So it's something like between Duke Nukem Forever and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 (the Japanese appearantly preferred the earlier quirky one).
I came... to this topic.
And I just orgasmed.

The truly ironic thing is that Sakamoto made Other M to cater more to the Japanese gamer population but it ended up alienating Japanese Metroid fans more than the Prime games did.

No no no. Mother 3 is nowhere near the same boat as Duke Nukem Forever was for the Japanese aside from those games having been in development hell for over a decade, and the final product disappointing some (though DNF was legitimately a sub-par game, while Mother 3 is among the best RPGs for the GBA).

For comparison sake, FE13 has 69 points now, while Mother 3's aggregate is 66 points. If Mother 3 has a "bad score" then so does FE13.

Like I said, a 6.5+ score on that site is the equivalent of getting above 8.0 in the West.

On the other hand, Other M has sold more copies than the Prime games there. Individually, at least.

Nope. Prime 1 and Prime Hunters sold more. And Other M only sold marginally better than Prime 3 did in Japan.
