Nope, that wasn't a question. :P

Chrono Trigger is an awesome game! Unfortunately, I have the PSX version which has those God-awful load times, but I will definitely be picking up the DS version later on this year!

Golden Sun, for the GBA is the best game I've ever played. But, I've never played Chrono Cross.

I have SNES, PSX and a DS preorder.

Can't wait.

Chrono Trigger is a system seller for me. This put the DS on my radar.

No question! Only tie to it (at least in the16-bit era anyway) is Mario RPG

Chrono Trigger, I really shouldn't need to say why...

EDIT:  Oops, still need to get used to this multiple forum thingy. I thought this was in general discussion. :P

Anyway, I've played Chrono Trigger, but I certainly don't think it's the best.

Diablo II. 
And yes, I've held that opinion before everyone went nuts about D3 too.

I'm buying a DS just for this game, that is how much i liked the game.

Not just best game ever, mind you -- it's the best produced entertainment ever created by mankind! 

So I'm an enormous philistine... so what.

Definitely a great game... and I can't wait for the DS release

Agree CT is the best game I have ever played. The story was just epic, and the gameplay was excellent.  I think I have to play it again now.

I got it for PS1 but never got too far in.  Any suggestions on what I should do?  Play throught it on PS, or wait until DS arrival?  And don't say SNES version, cause it was hard enough tracking down the PS one.

Ah, I still remember the day it was released, I was 9 at the time. Ah, one of the greatest game ever made :)

I was 14 when this came out.  I remember thinking at the time that it was the best game ever made.  Today, I still feel it's great and I play it with excitement, but I'm not sure it's the best.  I don't even know if I've played the best game yet.  But, nothing will replace those wonderful sprites, those gorgeous backgrounds and that fantastic soundtrack.  Aw.  What a great game.

A friend of mine the other day complained it was the most overrated game ever.  I disagree with that.  It's great.  Whether it meets someone else's falsely-inflated expectations, I don't think so.  But for me, it met expectations I didn't have for video games prior to it.

I don't think that one could reasonably call this the best game ever.  Top 10?  Perhaps.

For its time it was superb, and having played the SNES version again last year, I was pretty amazed at how well it held up.  That said, everything evolves, including RPG's -- it has been replaced by better.

And no, I'm not referring to Chrono Cross.

Still you are not giving exemples, and I'd like to hear about what you find best ;)

For me, it got replaced with other games over time (the Metal Gear series comes to mind) but it still holds a special place in my gaming library and will always.

what the fuck? Why is this game on the front page of the boards?

#21 Posted by Supremo (5 posts) -

I will say it is in my top 5 easy.

I still prefer Final Fantasy III aka VI as the best SNES rpg ever.   I did sink alot of time into crono trigger though, i love the art style and music.  You also don't see alot of time traveling in games.

But for the year it came out it was quite advanced for a game.
