A while back I saw that Chrono Trigger was on PSN. Now,what I am going to say is blasphemy, but here it goes.
I have never played a JRPG before.
I had heard that CT was one of the best, so I decided that I needed to start somewhere. (Yes, I know that the PSN version is inferior.) I am now at the very end of Magus's castle. So far I know I've made some rookie mistakes, one of which forcing me to retread the entire dungeon just to give Marle and Frog magic.
Are there any other tips you could give to someone who's new to JRPGs? I get the gist of the combat mechanics, but I'm sure there's some more subtlety below the surface.
