Chrono Trigger is one of my favorite SNES games, but also one I never actually played on Super Nintendo. To my great shame I didn’t discover it until they remade it for the Nintendo DS.
When I did finally play all I kept thinking was I wish I had this game as a kid. It would of been up there with Super Mario World, Kirby Superstar, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Donkey Kong Country as one of those games I would replay again and again. Now as an adult I don’t have the same kind of free time as I did as a child.
So many elements of this game would of hit my sweet spots when O was young. Great music (which I now realize Super Mario RPG borrowed heavily from), an epic story, time travel, science fiction, robots, talking animals, legendary swords, multiple endings, silly humor, and a straight forward turn based RPG system.
Ob well, I’ll just have to find the time.
