It sucks that Bucca's mom will never walk again and Ryan and Patrick saved over any chance of helping her.....it's pretty fucked up.....but not altogether unexpected... poor Lara....
They didn't save Lara!!!
I've played and beaten Chrono Trigger about half a dozen dozen times over the past 15 years and have many friends who have done the same.
I don't know a single person who managed to save Lara the first time.
I think it's better that way. It's more of a touching story moment. As a player, you feel the same frustrating and sad helplessness that Lucca feels.
My favorite thing about Chrono Trigger is that there is a real reason to go back and play through it again and do things differently (like beat the game without reviving Crono).
@JokerSmilez: On the DS, it's fun to beat Lavos with just Chrono and Marle after you get back from 600 AD, plus all of the other endings.
The first time I played through for the SNES I saved Lara. Although it took a second to figure it out. It was close. It is a really good moment in the game though for all the emotional drama associated with it.
