This classic Super Nintendo RPG is regarded by many as one of the best RPGs of all time, and for good reason. It features artwork from the “Dream Team” at Square: Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, and legendary Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. It even features some tracks by Nobuo Uematsu, who brought us so many memorable Final Fantasy tracks.
The game follows a cast including hero Crono, companion Marle, and Lucca (as well as several other characters) on a time-traveling quest to return history to normal after fouling it up through a certain well-timed series of events. It’s far more complicated than it sounds, but it’s also fantastically paced, beautifully written, and teeming with memorable scenes. It’s as close to perfect as games get, and you have to play it if you love RPGs.
