I thought this poll might be relevant, given all the recent Endurance Run discussion.
I originally played the game back on the SNES. I've still got the cartridge back at my parents' house, but I'm not even sure if the battery still works. The DS version is a pretty fine substitute, though.
I started playing the DS version a year or two ago (sadly never owned a SNES), but stopped like 4-5 hours in, I think because I sorta got out of the habit of playing my DS games for a while, then I got to that standard JRPG problem where I put it down for too long and don't remember where I was going or what was happening in the story, and I just want to start over.
So all that being said, I'm committing to actually completing Chrono Trigger one or more times on the DS before I start watching the Endurance Run, because I'd rather have my own memories of my first time seeing the game unfold. That seems like it will be more valuable to me than Patrick's half-remembered nostalgia, and Ryan's weird commentary on stuff that I don't always agree with or find entertaining.
You left out PC.
Indeed. I played through the first time on my little brother's $70 SNES cart, but I probably put more hours into it on zSnes or whatever. There were 10 save state slots, and I used them all to save all the multiple endings. And it's through emulation that I first heard the game's awesome music in stereo. So I regret nothing, Y'arr.
Played it on the SNES at first and got confused when I reached the "the Place between" or something. I then picked it up for the PS1 for the cut-scenes and got stuck at the same place. THEN I purchased it for the DS and decided to finally finish it, but then again it has so many endings so have I really?
I bought it the month it was released on the SNES. I played that damn game over and over again, I loved it. And all the different endings.
I don't know if I could play through it again. It might be fun for nostalgia for a few minutes, but I don't think I could seriously get into it like I did back then. That being said, I love everything about the game.
