Ugh. Sorry; that turned into a rant.

Chrono Trigger is my all-time favorite video game. I was prepared for a sequel/spinoff to not live up to my expectations, but Chrono Cross made me legitimately angry, to the point where I wish I'd never touched it.

First, it doesn't feel like it exists in the same universe as Trigger. The character and monster designs look nothing like the ones in Trigger. The world map is radically different from anything seen across multiple time periods in Trigger (and the explanation for that comes WAY too late in the game). You've suddenly got fairies, dwarves, dragons, and other ubiquitous fantasy creatures, whereas Trigger was distinctive for avoiding or at least downplaying all the classic RPG creatures that have been done to death. Plus now there are generic space aliens?

The tone yo-yos between miserably depressing and utterly wacky. Everyone now speaks with a contrived accent, whereas the only different speech patterns in Trigger were in different time periods. And Schala is suddenly is little blonde girl with short hair (with an unfathomably different personality and speech pattern, if we accept that Kid is her clone)? And the game is atrocious about feeding the player meaningful information to help them figure out how Trigger and Cross are connected; it's halfway through the game before you get any useful information, and a massive infodump RIGHT BEFORE THE FINAL BOSS finally makes the connections that should've been steadily forming throughout the entire game.

Second, the character roster is completely out of control, and it barely matters who's in your party anyhow because it's so easy to brute force most of the battles. Ignore the colors, spam the enemy with your most powerful spells, and heal occasionally, and you win just about every time. And it's infuriating to spend so much time equipping/re-equipping characters every time a new person joins, just to try them out for a few battles, because there's no sense leaving a benched character equipped with things that absolutely everyone can use.

Third, the game goes out of its way to ruin everything good about Trigger. The happy ending where you saved the world just made things worse. All the characters you loved and cared about ended up meeting some horrible fate.


Chrono Cross isn't a logical continuation of Chrono Trigger; it's a completely unrelated and mediocre RPG that cashes in on some name recognition, tarnishing that name in the process. I hate it.

But yeah, amazing soundtrack.

Didn't see your message until just now lol. Doom 64 is great! A lot more atmospheric than the other classic Doom games, but a worthy entry to the series nonetheless. The modern rerelease of it is a great port as well.

Oh boy. Chrono Cross. Fair warning: if you're as attached to Chrono Trigger as I am (and your 5-star rating of the game suggests you might be), then there's a good chance you're going to end up despising Chrono Cross.

Awesome soundtrack, though.

Oh yeah, I had actually played Diablo quite a bit as a kid, owned it on CD (still do, it's over to my left lol). I remember getting stuck somewhere but my dad had gotten further. He also got stuck at one point and gave up so I played his save and beat the game.

I had an impulse to play it again, and didn't want to mess with my slowly-dying disc drive, so I bought the GOG version. It's been fun, I've missed this kind of gothic atmosphere, not a whole lot of games have captured it since then.
