        different anon. like for different reasons, the only thing really linking them is the ring menu and parts of the combat.

        mana series is always got a theme of death and rebirth, apocalypse and renewal.

        evermore is a bag of cheese and pseudo americana send-ups to c-level adventure serials.

        I think its a case of CT making it look easy and effortless but in actuality its hard to do that well
        also just copying another game whole cloth is boring

        like sequels?

          Not sure what you're really looking for since Chrono Trigger has a bit of a unique battle system with the ATB and enemies moving around the screen and FF6 is a bog standard JRPG so Im assuming youre just asking for more JRPGs.

          I really like The 7th Saga, its not as hard as everyone says it is if you make sure you buy and use items regularly and make use of the rune abilities. The main thing this one does thats cool is how the other characters are looking for the runes at the same time as you and depending on who youre playing as and the choices you make they can become your enemies and even if you team up with someone they can betray you and steal your runes. Really cool atmosphere, great enemy sprites with cool designs and were animated before that became common, decent story, and excellent music.

          Earthbound is great frick the haters on here who are just mad its popular.

          Mario RPG is really good but painfully easy, also really short at about 8-12 hours but its fun and has cool graphics and great music.

          I personally like FF4(2) way more than the other ones on the system. Its paced a lot better and isn't bloated with so many party members and isnt longer than it needs to be.

          Not really a fan of any other of the JRPGs on SNES. For me I don't play JRPGs for the gameplay alone, I'm looking for interesting worlds, stories and characters, game mechanics and ideas. JRPGs that don't provide at least one of those things, like Dragon Quest, can go in the fricking trash.

      it's because it's the capstone that defined a genre in the making following years of build up, experimentation, etc. in the generations that followed, the exact opposite happened: genre-inventing games came out that would turn out to be the best to ever do it, and everything since then has been an imitation of the glory days.

      The fun part is that Crono Trigger combat is basic. Attack, heal... eh... debuff? FF combat, on the other hand in the most profound in the genre. Kill a rock eneny with the same item that's used to heal petrification? Check. Take control of the enemy to get it to cast a spell you need to learn? Check. Half enemy's level so it becomes targetable by a level-ckecking spell? Check.

        the options themselves are basic but it's the unique idea of having battles on the overworld that makes it fun
        each tech having their own area of effect makes you plan out the perfect time to strike, but you can't take too long else the enemy gets you back, it's a really cool time management system i've not seen any game done elsewhere

      Lunar has that. Maybe try that one. I was going to play that game but at the very, very beginning of the game they hit you with
      > go to this cave east of here
      > cave entrance is blocked
      > oh you know what return to the town you just left to retrieve an item from my house that will help
      Seems like bullshit to me to try to artificially increase the running time. So I dropped it.

        At least play the sega cd Eternal blue, Its like the chrono trigger of the genny. That is the most polished jrpg to be released on a sega 16 bit system.

      Wish it had been made more like a SNES RPG rather than feeling so much like a NES one.
      Finding the other apprentices is cool and all, but they barely have unique dialogue other than at the very start + when you find them in the 3rd/4th towns.
      The only one that even has unique dialogue depending on who you play as is the priest (and only if you play as the demon, it's a line change at the beginning of the game).
      Yet oddly, internal data shows that there are somewhat intricate relationships between them all, such as the alien hating all mages, or the elf disliking everyone except the robot, or the dwarf being one of the few "good" guys who's friendly to the alien.

          This is one of the few areas I think we can all agree Cross outdid Trigger, right?
          Trigger may have had more endings (or at least, variants), but many of them were nonsense slideshow padding. Cross doubles-down on the "this is the consequence for the rest of the story" aspect. Every ending in Cross is meticulously designed and doesn't feel like a waste of space. shame about the rest of the game AM I RIGHT FELLAS? HA!

      sure
      make sure you play it blind
      i feel like a lot of people tend to play that game with a guide nowadays and it makes it overwhelming and stressful with all the miss-able stuff and characters
      that game works best if you dont worry about that at all
      a major decision comes up? make the call, and deal with the consequences of your choice. imo thats where the game really shines

      also worth noting if you DO wanna go back and get all the stuff you missed theres a NG+
      but for first time, just go in blind

      I'm going to say that my first playthrough was blind, and there is ONE thing you do NOT want to miss early on, and I was PISSED when I found out about it.
      When Kid first asks you to join up with her at the cape, say no like an butthole repeatedly until she fricks off. And trust me, it makes sense, you've been through alot and you just need some space for your head to clear up, and you'll get your next chance very soon.
      LEENA will join up automatically, and this is your only chance to recruit her. She's the best Blue innate in the game (besides Fargo but he joins pretty late) and is one of the few characters you'll want on your team 75% of the time.
      While I'm at it, make sure you're not an butthole to Leena, and say you remember the promise you made to her and that you won't forget that day when you meet her on the docks before you leave your hometown. You'll thank me later.
      Otherwise yeah play it blind except for what I told you, there aren't as many permanent missable characters so much as an overwhelming amount of bench fodder, and you need to play New Game + twice anyway to get all of them (and one character weirdly requires you to start NG+ mid-game to keep).

      [...]
      [...]
      [...]

    I'm replaying Chrono Trigger for the first time since the early 2000s. It is honestly shocking how fast paced this game is. Not to mention the graphics. I don't think there's a single RPG on the next gen systems (N64, Saturn, PSX) with better graphics. Well, it is on the Playstation too, but you know what I mean.

    Here is a question for all the Cross experts. Where do they talk about the Ghost Ship before getting on it? I just kinda remembered it was there from my childhood playthrough so I went and the party is acting like they knew of a ghost ship out in the ocean.

    Another thing, I feel like thus far a few times I got stuck on quest progression. Like getting the guide for the boat, same for when you get back Terminia
