So who here as played this fantastic game
Me. It was ok and while I am sure it was amazing for its time I felt it fell flat leaving me relatively unimpressed. The music was rather good at least.
It's not the same without I Yellalot.
No. No it's not Myrm. I Yellalot was who I thought of first when I saw this...
I WILL FOREVER MOURN YOUR PASSING I YELLALOT.

Anyway, great game, though I don't think its aged too well. I still played the fuck out of the DS rerelease, though. Never did get all of the techs. =d
It's kind of fun.
Ad say a god number of us have, including meself, in fact I just recently downloaded and am currently playing a fanmade sequel.
It's a good game and I yearn for advanced versions of it.
wait, what happened to I yellalot?
Banned for yelling a lot.
And threatening the mods.
I played Chrono Trigger when it was new, still one of my favorite RPGs. If it came out right now I don't think it'd be notable though.

You know, the more I played this game, the more I hated Chrono Cross for taking a giant steaming dump over almost every facet of the story.
Dalton is now my most hated game character of all time.

Bought it with Christmas money and am listening to the credits roll (yet again) as I type this. I managed to keep myself unspoiled about a lot of it, and a number of scenes were surprisingly moving. I'm sorry, Lucca's Mother!
Oh that one part is one of the few in the game that touched me genuinely. I was going in completely blind to the game and that caught me off guard. It was my fault too which added to the impact.
The game that turned me into an RPG fan for life. If you can't tell by my name, I loved the hell out of it.
Still one of my favorite games.
Never played it. I know I'm missing out, but on what, exactly?
A game that was a thing for its time. I found the story to be rather uninteresting save for a few small sidequests. Particularly Lucca's. The game is very, very, very easy the first time through. I hear the new game plus is harder, but I never played it. It has multiple endings which was an exciting thing though Capcom beat Square to that with Breath of Fire. The music is pretty damn golden though.

A Fascinating story, some interesting character, a fun RPG based on a... what was it called? an ATB meter or something?
Anyhow, the time travel story is interesting, and there's just something about a game where you can complete the game without the main protagonist that really fascinates me.
The game is sort of hard to explain. It's apparently one of those things that is 1) a JRPG for people who typically don't care for them, 2) one of those great classics 3) A game that was sort of excellent for it's time and some that play it now may not see what's so special about it, but that may or may not happen.
I played it in this day and age for the first time and still found it to be amazing, but I'm not as game savvy as most, so maybe to you it might look tired and cliched, I don't know, it's hard to explain.

Some of the things Chrono Trigger has going for it:
And that's about it. If I gush too much more about it, I might end up creating Hype Aversion.
Chrono Trigger is an breezy, adventury RPG with fine time-travel gameplay and first-rate music. The battles aren't anything special. Good for beginners to RPGs. And that music really is damned good.
It's the kinda game where it's like "Let's go!" rather than "How long are you gonna brood before we can go?"

CT was pretty entertaining, though it suffers somewhat from the "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny problem. Since so many RP Gs adopted many of the things it was the first to use, it seems somewhat flat in comparison.
I don't know about that. Chrono Trigger has tons of merits that haven't aged badly. The fast-paced story unique miniquests are some examples.
And yeah, I have to say that I disliked Cross as well. Even taken on its own, without comparison to Trigger, it still fails hard in a lot of respects.
Love the game, violently despise Chrono Cross for wrecking. Have had to come to terms that my hate for Masato Kato's hijacking of the series had reached Malstrom-levels, and have since started letting go.
I was wondering when Rebochan would weigh in :}
