I would sooner wipe my ass with those games than replay any of them. Especially EarthBound--Secret of Mana, and Illusion of Gaia, too.

That's not true; he's a die hard Tecmo Secret of the Stars fanatic.

Pierrot seems to be fondest of JRPGs that never received English translations.

It means he doesn't have to experience a poor translation not of his own making. His enjoyment of the author's intent is limited only by his ability to comprehend the author's words.

If that's the case, I don't understand why he can't enjoy the original Japanese versions of ChronoTrigger, Final Fantasy VI, and EarthBound.

I don't know that he didn't, but assuming his first experience was with the original English translations, the first time you play a game typically leaves the most stark impression. If the translation was part of why he didn't like them (again, making assumptions), that kind of thing can be really hard to overcome. But, maybe he just doesn't enjoy them for other equally valid reasons.

I can kinda get the animus towards Secret of Mana. I always wonder how much of the story got cut because Square Soft couldn't be bothered to even re-write the text format size to accommodate English letters.
The PSTV is amazing.
