The name Chrono Trigger has the capability of bringing tears to the eyes of a veteran gamer. It really does.

Only games of this classic, timeless nature can incite such powerful emotions, and sometimes it does our hearts good to look back and appreciate what we had. That's what rapper Richie Branson did in his latest, which is cool.

This homage to one of the best RPGs – and indeed, one of the best overall games – of all time is well worth listening to. You'll also get plenty of footage from the 1995 masterpiece, which was released back when Squaresoft could do no wrong. The company went on to further fame and glory, which rose to mythic proportions in the PlayStation era. Coincidentally, I forgot that Chrono Trigger released in the same year as the PlayStation; basically, on the cusp of a new era of gaming.

And despite that new era, which ushered in fancy new graphics, and subsequent eras, so many will always remember CT with a deep fondness. Check out more of Branson's work at his official website .

Was this also the same guy that made the song requesting that Square-Enix make a FF VII remake?

Chrono Trigger and FF1 are the only RPGs I have ever completed, and Chrono still one of my top 10 gaming experiences of all times… Now I feel like playing it again 🙂

To be honest I would be a lot more excited about a CT remake than an FF7.

Nah they probably would ruin the game with the awful FFXIII battle system.

Not enough game used the same kind of combo system ( most of the time it s simply a couple of character using normal move in a combo and it suck ) , not even chrono cross .

This game is the standard bearer of what exactly a Jrpg should be like. Few games ever surpassed it in ps1 ps2 era and none has matched up to it in ps3 era in terms of its influence and its emotional impact on gamers mind. It truly opens a beautiful and magical fantasy world with moving melody that stuck in my mind, I can say, the rest of my life sine I was 16 in 1995.

The absolute best RPGs ever created and I will be in heaven If they re open this franchise in this age–given that they adop the same methodology as the original game., not squeenix epic derail in ff13 style.
