The 30-Day Gamer Challenge – Day 10

Chrono Trigger

A game you’ve played but never finished, and wish you had

This is possibly the easiest answer thus far, but is also the most embarrassing. I have never finished Chrono Trigger. For shame.

Over the course of 15 years, I have begun this SquareSoft classic more than a dozen times, but for some reason or another, was never able to complete the game. What makes this so sad is that I genuinely enjoy playing Chrono Trigger and am very interested in the characters, plot, and game world. Of course I am; this is, according to many, one of the greatest games of all time, after all, and I can only imagine the grandeur that I’ve been missing out on all these years.

There is hope, however, because unlike Final Fantasy VII (which I ended up reading the roughly 300-page script for instead of actually playing, years after release), Chrono Trigger has aged quite well. In fact, an enhanced version of the game was released just 2 years ago on the Nintendo DS, which may end up being my final, subway-riding, line-waiting, before-bed-playing hope for completing this classic that I so yearn to finish.
