Ask any neurotypical person you work with/live with/date what rpg they loved and they always say chrono trigger. If you bring up the SNES everyone just talks about chrono trigger.


yet these guys never experienced baulders gate?? talk about living a lovely shallow turd life

Chrono Trigger is a hell of a lot better than the D&D shitfest Baldur's Gay.

i thought the combat was like a slower version of the ff6 system with a weird positioning system that you couldnt actually control

it felt like half the battle was up to the whims of fate because my party just went wherever the hell they wanted

No, reasons whyyyyy-
1. no char creation
2. Multiple endings are nice and all, but only one is good and the rest are jokes in Chrono trigger
3. did not have ,multiple sequels and the only successor after it was some baby's first jrpg fag fest
3. baulders had different romace/party option. Chrono you get a child wearing sweat pants and the only optional part men is Magnus
4. graphics range from dumb to lame.
5. baulders had an interesting villian you hunt down that has an amazing back story. Chrono you fight a space hedgehog.
6. I could go on, but you got mega hosed

Baldur's Gate is a horrible mangled realtime interpretation of 2nd ed AD&D which isn't even any good in the first place. Since the core systems of the game is horrible, this invalidates everything else. The Baldur's Gate sequel, Baldur's Gate II is also awful for the same reason.

Bioware Writing is Win and hell the Mass Effect series is awsome. But Baldur's Gate barely has any writing at all and the core systems are fucken broken.

Real talk: Chrono Trigger is the only game I give 10/10

Everything about it just comes together so well.

We will never have another game as satisfying. Which isn't to say Chrono Trigger is unsurpassable, just that game development doesn't work like that anymore.


Baldur's Gate was pretty good, also. Come on guys, BG and CT can be friends.
