Yep was said but Secret of Mana was great as well. Also be careful when you look up Final fantasy 4 which is 2 on the snes. That one is my second favorite FF right behind 7. Earthbound is also great. I've played just about every RPG on the NES and snes I could get my hands on. Plus if you have one the PlayStation has some wonderful rpgs as well!

YES! It is arguably the greatest game ever made, period, regardless of genre. You need to play it.

Chrono Trigger is easily the best RPG I have ever played. It's my favourite SNES title. I first played it on the DS. It hadn't been released here in Europe before, so I was curious what the fuss was about. I love the characters, the story, the gameplay, the worlds, the amazing soundtrack, the wonderful 16-bit pixel graphics, everything! It's one of those rare games where each of those individual elements fit together so seamlessly, the whole package becomes something just that little bit better than just 'good'.

There were many RPG jewels on the SNES like Secret of Evermore, Final Fantasy VI (wrongly renamed III in the Americas), Super Mario RPG and Secret of Mana. I never touched Chrono Trigger back in the day but I played the sequel Chrono Cross in the PSX era and I didn't like it (THB I hated it) many years later I finally played Chrono Trigger on the DS for the first time. Unfortunately in my country it was quite difficult to get RPG games/cartridges but somehow I manage to play the some great games back then.

In the PSX appeared many wonderful RPG as well like the Final Fantasy VII, VIII and IX (VIII is my personal favorite of all FF saga), Vagrant Story to name a few. Recently I had the chance of playing The Last Story which is also another wonderful RPG which make me remember the good old times of the 16 - 32 bits RPG era.

P.S. Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean for the SNES are worth checking if you ever had the chance.

Chrono Trigger is an excellent RPG, certainly a contender for the best SNES title and one of the best RPGs ever made. However, I have a hard time placing it in the top 3, let alone crowning it "the greatest RPG of all time". Combat-wise, it's less diverse than Final Fantasy VI, less deep and strategic than Vagrant Story and less satisfying or well-done as The World Ends With You. The time travel element is good, but frankly, other titles explored the concept better, like Radiant Historia. As far as the story goes, the villain is an uninteresting force of nature (without going into Chrono Cross' plot), the silent protagonist is completely useless to the plot and though the characters are very well-written for 1995, the final hours dragged on due to a certain sidequest related to the worst of the group. Still, it does what it intended to exceptionally well and deserves its place at the top of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's library.

Chrono Trigger may be one of my favorite games of all time, but it's given far more praise than it deserves. It is worth playing through at least once, be it on the SNES, Wii/U or DS. Not the PlayStation version because... oh dear, those loading times....

Yes, Chrono Trigger isn't one of those overhyped games that isn't as good as all the fanboys say. It really is that good. It is easily the best RPG on the SNES and the best game Square has ever made. I would consider it still in the top 10 games of all time. The story, characters, and world are completely engrossing. The battle system is simple, yet engaging. The sidequests are actually meaningful, giving tons of character development. The complexity of the story plus multiple endings also give plenty of replay value. You catch something new every playthrough.

For the price of it on the Wii VC, you have nothing to lose. I've played through it at least once each on VC, DS, and PS1, clocking several hundred hours on it total. If you have a DS or 3DS though, I would actually recommend that version. The second screen doesn't make much of a difference, but I think the UI benefits from it. It also keeps the anime cutscenes from the PS1 version, but fixes the awful load times. There's also a few extra goodies in that version.

probably through a Wii on VC. Think it's 900 points. Probably best played with the old style classic controller rather than the pro.

Chrono Trigger is one of the best, all around games I've ever played; meaning there wasn't a single aspect (gameplay, visual style, music, story, etc.) that I thought needed significant improvement over the finished product.

If I had a friend who wasn't into JRPGs but wanted to try one out I would have him play Chrono Trigger. If he can't get into this game, then I have a hard time imagining he'd like any JRPGs.

Don't have one. I have a junk 3rd party pro and an adapter to use a gamecube for the Wii U. Is it really worth it?
Edit: meaning getting a classic controler (not pro)

The control scheme is quite simple and there aren't really any demanding portions of the game as far as button input goes. One quest has you playing a carnival game in which you have to copy a mirror's movements quickly, but that's about it. Your controller shouldn't make too much of a difference. A GC controller or even a 3rd party pro controller should do fine.

Good. I love the gamecube controller. But never try to use a 3rd party pro for the mirror shield light puzzles in majora's mask. It makes them nearly impossible: Its joysticks read all input like a d-pad---All or nothing.

Lucky for you, the SNES didn't have any analog input. ;P

Chrono Trigger is so good that it almost destroyed my marriage!!

At first I found it to be a bit underwhelming, but after a couple of hours of time traveling and upgrading oneself, it started to grow into me. I couldn't let it go for weeks and my wife threatened with divorce if I didn't stop. I didn't stop but started playing late at night and while in the bathroom. IS THAT GOOD!!

I think that I invested around 60 hours or so (I did every sidequest) and arrived at 3 different endings. Is definitely on my top 5 games of all time and is among the few games that I've finished completely. Other games on my top 5 are Devil Survivor, The World ends with you, Wii Paper Mario and Suikoden Tierkris DS.
