Back in the early 90’s I was a huge fan of Japanese RPG’s on the NES and later the SNES. Looking back, it was my personal golden age of video games. However I never did get around to playing Chrono Trigger, it just happened to come out when I was graduating HS and starting college.
Chrono Trigger always makes it way high up on lists of greatest games ever, and after playing it through I must agree and place it very high on my list of all time greats as well. Even though this game was from super way back on the SNES in 1995, it amazingly still held up as a great game.
It seemed to have everything that I used to enjoy in games as a kid. The numerous characters you get, the rich story (time travel is always cool), and the numerous side quests and alternate endings are very cool too. All in all just everything that used to be great about Japanese RPG’s. Wish they still made them like this.
