The best game of all time, Chrono Trigger

Really anything done by Square during this time brings up nothing but good memories.

Man I still play that game. It's so addicting. I don't know why.

When I bought it, I didn't even know what an RPG was. I just saw 'mario' and thought hey, this looks fun. This game is amazing, yet kind of underrated.


I agree everything about that game was awesome from the music to the gameplay to the graphics back in that day was amazing I could never get bored of it


We miss you Geno

I didn't like the Final Fantasy titles. I never have, I haven't even finished one.

Though, the best RPG ever created, for me, is Golden Sun 2. But that's a different thread.

FF6 and Chrono Trigger both seem to have permanent residence in my Nintendo DS Fat. I like to think of it as my emergency backup in case the power goes out or something.

I think I died more in FF2 then I do in PvP and I'm the world's worst at PvP.

OP: I'm not the one who reported you, but this post will likely get deleted. ROMs are illegal. For years sites that offer them have offered the nonsensical, "It's okay if you own the original". But we all know that those aren't the people who download them. And Nintendo used to be relatively fervent in trying to dispel that nonsense.

Nintendo and SONY have been trying to fight them for years. Especially now that there are services like the Wii's virtual console that let you buy the games again.

With that in mind....Ironically, Terranigma was one of the best and underrated SNES RPGs. But I only got to play it on ROM as a kid because it was never actually released in North America(though it was released in Europe, for some reason).

Tell that to my physical copy of Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu. (Hahehe.. Japanese only game. I got a physical copy, but have only actually played it as a ROM, cause it's Japanese only) but speaking of...
Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu (Or "Genealogy of the Holy War", "Lineage of the Crusade"... "Descendants of Jihad"...). I know, it's not a full RPG- rather it's an SRPG (For those who don't know what the Fire Emblem series is, they're Strategy games, but they're RPGs), but Holy War kicks an ungodly amount of ass, although it has a case of "Meteors Fall. Everybody dies." Um, hey, Sephiroth is known because he killed a sweet innocent flower girl... where's Lord Alvis's recognition?! Alvis killed... the main character (After STEALING his wife from him), and just about all of the main character's friends too. But he's not a true villain- he's a anti-villain proper. That's just how epic this game is.

I had just come in here to post about Terranigma.

Terranigma and Illusion of Gaia are two of the most woefully under-appreciated RPGs that Enix ever did. I remember being just a kid when Hamlet jumped into that fire.

And Terranigma was just awesome. The music is <3

I also loved SMRPG and secret of mana. Those were the first two games I downloaded off the virtual console.

I'm also shocked nobody has mentioned Mother/Earthbound. Giygas is pretty much the stuff of 80% of older gamer today's nightmares I think.

Not enough people have played the game he's in. Also with what happens after people might not hate him as much so that could play in it a bit.

No mention of Manfroy though? Scheming piece of garbage sure as heck did a lot as well.

I didn't like Chrono Trigger...


O_O

People forget Brain Lord and , as another poster mentioned, Terranigma. Both AWESOME games.

But nothing can compare to the sheer awesomeness of Chrono Trigger and SMRPG.
