So back in summer of 2015 I signed up for a Reddit gift exchange that was Nintendo themed. The gift exchanged started with just with the secret santa exchange around Christmas every year but it grew over the years to be the massive entity it is today.
Anyhow for this particular Nintendo themed exchanged I got matched with a very awesome kid. He was 16 years old and mentioned that his favorite game was Earthbound (among others). he also said Ness was one of his most favorite characters of all time.
All I could do was smile and think, wow, isn't this pretty much me at that same age? I decided I wanted to do something nice and tried my best to make a cool Earthbound package. Here are some pictures of what I sent him:
Here was his reaction:
You'll note in his reaction he commented on a letter I included. I tried my best to write him a letter from the heart, how I once upon a time I was just like him, a fan of Earthbound, and how I used to even participate with a really cool fan site back in those days... :)
