Chrono Trigger's development team included three designers that Square dubbed the "Dream Team": Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Square's Final Fantasy series; Yuji Horii, a freelance designer and creator of Enix's popular Dragon Quest series; and Akira Toriyama, a freelance manga art...

Frog is the coolest ally ever. I guess the rest of the game is cool too.

Chrono Trigger was undoubtedly a masterpiece at its time of release, but time hasn't been especially kind to it. Certain areas of it, such as world and character interactions are incredible to this day, but its gameplay and level design haven't aged particularly well. Such a shame that, during my time with the game, I was thinking more about its infuriatingly tedious gameplay and level design than all of its cool and interesting ideas.
Pros: Plenty of revolutionary ideas, superb time traveling mechanics and the way your actions influence the world, solid story and characters, some solid music, New Game+ and multiple endings, neat little touches
Cons: Cringe worthy padding, tedious gameplay, plenty of unavoidable fights, uninteresting visual and level design, poorly rewards exploration

Martenas Arts Funny, i find that 3d titans such as FF7 dont age well, especially due to the fact that it used early 3d polygonal graphics & endless cut-scenes (also contrived storytelling). When it comes to chrono trigger i have few complaints. Still looks gorgeous, awesome combat (where you can do different combos), re-playability form the get go, choices that matter, and multiple endings, with one of the most epic stories. Whats not to love sour puss ? Weird how people can feel so differently about a subject, hu !

Larosenin - I must agree with you Martenas, 5th generation games age poorly but fourth generation is still as good as it was before

Chrono trigger is time travel done right. It isn't confusing, and it actually works really well with the story. The battle system is the best of any RPG i have ever played, being frantic while also being easy to understand. Hard to critique, just go play it.

A really good game but slightly overrated I believe.

My personal vote for the best Square game made (that I've played). It controls decently, the story, for revolving around time travel, is surprisingly very well done, the soundtrack is killer, the characters are all well developed and likable, and, for its time, a very detailed art style. It's just as great as everyone makes it out to be, and possibly even better.

I'm not actually a huge fan of RPGs but this game is an exception. Most RPGs that I have played were slow and overcomplicated in my opinion (besides the Pokemon series of course), but when I played this game for the first time, boy was I surprised. I now completely understand why this game is called a masterpiece by so many and I love it. The battle system is fairly simple and the story is amazing with some of the best characters that I've ever seen in a video game.

My top five is fairly fluid (especially my top two), but if forced to pick, Chrono Trigger would be My Favorite Game Of All Time. It did everything right. It was paced to within an inch of perfection, had fascinating locations and characters and somehow got me invested in a story that was, in retrospect, very bland.

This is what the Super Nintendo was about for me, the impact SquareSoft left on it. Oh boy they did with this. Amazing music, great story, great mechanics, time travel, multiple endings, (not a fan of the whole silent protagonist gig but oh well) Chrono Trigger was really as good as JRPGs got in the 16-bit era.

Chrono Trigger is one of the best classic RPGs of all time. Absolutely great soundtrack (Tyranno Lair is my favorite!), thrilling storyline, diverse and big worlds, simple ATB battle system, lots of different enemies and characters, lots of items and weapons, lovely animations and graphics... there are literally no bad things I can say about this game! Sometimes I needed to check out a walkthrough because it was unclear to me where I had to go to, but besides this everything is great in this game. Even after beating the game there are some new challenges (like getting all items) so there is also replay-value. Overall I enjoyed this game much more than Super Mario RPG and I recommend it to every classic RPG fan.

Supergroup projects aren't supposed to work this well, but somehow this crossover project between Squaresoft and Enix near their creative heights resulted in this unique, polished RPG. The story is short but the multiple endings contained in the game is still very progressive. It isn't perfect, personally I prefer the grander, epic nature of Final Fantasy VI over CT's mostly lighter story, as well as it's ensamble of characters. Still it is hard to deny this is a very well put together game.

No less than the greatest JPRG, and possibly the greatest game of all time. One of the most unique settings in gaming in its time-travelling plot that's wrapped around some of the most endearing characters, beautiful music and tight, fast-paced gameplay in RPG gaming history. There is no other adventure quite like the creative and charming Chrono Trigger, and there probably never will be again.

Square's finest piece of work. Chrono Trigger was, and still is, a fantastic piece of interactive entertainment that truly went past its hardware limitations. With a story that made players both laugh and cry, an original battle system that emphasized teamwork, and some of the finest music in the industry, Chrono Trigger is everything you want in a video game, let alone an RPG. The multiple endings kept players coming back for more, and the addition of "New Game+" took all of the tedium of item-hunting away. And I still wonder why the original has never received a true sequel. With its numerous ports (the best being the DS version) introducing the game to a new generation of gamers, it's clear that the Chrono Bus keeps on rollin'.

The epic Japanese RPG of an era. Chrono Trigger included many intriguing ways of using time travel to tell a unique story. It's not just about saving the world. It's also about finding friends and building close relationships along the way.

Brilliant game, even holds up well compared to todays standards. The time travel mechanics are perfect, and every character was likable. Battle system that never got dull, and one of the best soundtracks of all time. Best game of all time tied with Final Fantasy VI? I think so.
