I feel like playing Chrono Trigger again just to hear Frog's music. I love that tune.

If I remember correctly, it's been a while.. my favorites were the AD 1000 overworld theme, Magus' Theme, and the Big Boos theme (when you fight Masa and Mune)..

The Chrono Trigger remix CD is also very.. unique.. very cool.

Hey spainlinx0, if you haven't already, you should check out Ailsean's guitar/metal remix of this song at overclocked remix. Its truly kick ass and one of the best remixes i've ever heard. I believe its called "The Knights Come Marching In" or something like that. Its in the CT section.

The Big Boss tune only plays during 2 other boss fights - against Rust Tyrano (the side quest, second time), and against Giga Gaia. It's the song with the big trumpet fanfare at the beginning, right? it's one of my favorites too.

Just wondering, Is it possible to beat that big machine when your in the floating island world. I think that one time I fought him for like 20 minutes and still couldn't. Also, the best combo in the game had to be Chrono, Frog, and either Robo or the Princess.

If you mean the first battle where you're scripted to lose, then no.

I don't know about best ever, but definitely a very fun game.

Thinking back, all but 1 of my favorite console RPGs (CT, FF3, Lufia 2, Earthbound, Secret of Mana) were SNES (the only one on a different system: Landstalker, which wasn't exactly an RPG)

I also don't see what the big hoopla over Secret of Mana was. Poeple praise SoM, yet trash SoE. IMO, SoE was the better game, athough they were both pretty flawed.

as the owner of almost every snes rpg (through the system or emulation), i have to say my favorite was earthbound. a great storyline and such a unique game all around. the non-lethal weapons and little kids scared me away at first but i have replayed it more times than i can possibly count.

Ugh, more praise for this cliche-fest?

I definitely enjoyed Lufia II, Final Fantasy II & III, and Earthbound much more.

Chrono Trigger. It's a cliche-fest...

The nameless, adventurous kid who always gets himself into sticky situations ends up saving the world.

The free-sprited and noble tomboy princess who's kept under lock and key by her overprotective father, the King.

The nerdy techno-savvy girl who's been friends with the main character forever and can fix anything, even if it's from the future.

The robot who wants nothing more than to be human, and defy his original programming.

The lone warrior who must take up the sword one last time to atone for his past failures.

The strong cavewoman with attitude.

and last but not least, the misunderstood magician who's not really evil.

All games are Cliche. If their not, then they soon become it because everyone uses the idea a million times over.

I've always wondered - if it's the "Final Fantasy," how come there's so many of them?

The SNES RPG's were definately a golden age for the genre I think. If you are a fan of Chrono Trigger and haven't played Lufia 2, then I definately recommend you check it out as it is also very well done.

I think that you need to recheck the definition of the word cliched.

this is off topic, I'm not exactly sure, but I remember reading an interview somewhere with the producer where he said that each of the games are "final" in that each has its own beginning and end, and none of the games are direct sequels and they never re-use characters in sequels (except the obligatory Cid and chocobo ). Of course, now that FFX-2 is coming out, this has been broken.

I'm thinking (hoping) that he was being sarcastic.

I read somewhere that when the creator was making the first final fantasy for nes he wasn't sure there were going to be any more so he called it final fantasy.. of course it became a huge hit and he liked the name so he kept it

I think I was really really tired when I asked that question and I think I just asked it to be kinda funny... not that it's an original joke or anything. At least some good came out of it - I can start calling them $quare$oft.
