The 100 Greatest Games | 67 | Chrono Trigger

YEAR: 1995     FORMAT: SUPER NES

The 100 Greatest Games | 67 | Chrono Trigger


These days, most gamers take multiple endings for granted, but 1995's Chrono Trigger was the first to offer a variety of possible outcomes, inspiring hardcore fans to play through the adventure again and again to see how differently things could pan out. Visible enemies on the battlefield, rather than tedious random battles, also marked Chrono Trigger out from most traditional RPGs, while the nifty time travel elements allowed players to alter history and change the course of their adventure.

Memorable for...
Its scarcity. An evergreen fan favourite in the UK, Chrono Trigger was never officially released in Europe on the Super NES, and most players could only experience it through grey imports from the US or Japan. It's now available on the DS though, so pick up a copy if you can.
