        Christ, this board gets lower and lower, Chrono Trigger didn’t even have something as basic as proper attack attributes for weapon, nor any sort of customization or player agency beyond selecting a checkpoint ending, which wasn’t even something original by then as there’s NES games with the same exact design.
        Chrono Trigger doesn’t even let you choose equipment properly because it’s all character specific, that alone puts it below the average DQ or games like FFV in terms of depth, and if you want to compare it to actually deep systems like any SaGa game or some sim RPGs of the time like Uncharted Waters or Lunatic Dawn it’s plain kiddy shit with barely even a fifth of the mechanics, and most of those are ill implemented as well, like positioning or AoE.
        CT is just as mechanically archaic for its time as the average console RPG of the time, Romancing SaGa 2 alone blows it out of the water and that’s just considering one game from Square’s own output, if you want to actually look at the SNES library it’s outdone even by some Banpresto games like Traverse, the fucking Banpresto that published the SRW games.
        Even some Ascii Soft game like Dark Law is considerably deeper mechanically by playing in the same exact design field and it’s a 15 hours game with next to no budget.

        Nobody who actually plays RPGs can pretend CT was even remotely interesting mechanically, it did look very good for its time, Mitsuda did a great job on the OST, but that’s it, even Cross does a better job than Trigger in the mechanical field and that’s another hot mess of stolen mechanics made somehow worse than the source materials, hell CT even stole the time travelling gimmick from SaGa 3, and that’s a game boy game.

          it’s funny you didn’t also copy the part where like 4 people BTFO your shitty wall of text, like when you didn’t actually know about the games you tried name dropping like Lunatic Dawn, or your claim that equipment is "character specific" when it’s not.

      The only thing I’d bother lifting from CT’s combat is the double/triple techs, everything else can be left behind.

      Why the fuck don’t other JRPGs have dual and triple techs? It’s so fucking obvious and easy but they just don’t want to do it somehow.

      I do, though, hence why I name-dropped them. I won’t argue about LD with you, however, until you post your savefile.
      >equipment is "character specific" when it’s not
      it effectively is, though.

            The animations of the input commands are being played out. If you were actually such a "purist", you’d be playing ASCII roguelikes, but you aren’t, what’s up with that?

      There are plenty of systems that surpass it.
      But plain truth is, nothing will ever surpass it’s battle music. It’s as iconic and unsurmountable as the boss music in river city ransom.

      Basically all of them except for Final Fantasy, because ATB is the worst battle system ever devised.

      I think Chrono Trigger has a pretty fun combat system but it gets dragged down because it’s ATB. JRPGs that have traditional turn based combat and full real time combat all typically have better combat systems than Chrono Trigger.

      I love Chrono Trigger and think it’s an incredible game, but I’ve definitely had more fun with other battle systems. Also Robo is the best party member because he can do everything and allows the player to permanently bench Marle.

      The praise for CT is weird. You look at the other games that make it to every pleb tier Greatest of All Time list (dude sex, ocarina, mario) and at least you can argue they either did something well, did something first or popularized something good. All ct did was popularize boring JRPGs where you input the same combo (also the only combo) over and over and watch some okay sprite animations.
