Chrono Trigger - Super famicom and SNES


The classic dream team, a union of devs from Square and Enix, competitors at the time, most notably Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, and Yuji Horii, the creator of Dragon Quest. Also, art by Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball.

The game is themed around time travel, features no random encounters and is awesome. And oh god the soundtrack by Yasunori Mitsuda is lovely!

Super Nintendo/Super Famicon role playing games. I'm deliberately avoiding games of the Strategy variety, otherwise the lines between what an RPG start to blur so much I can't know. I mean, the lines are blurred enough on the Action-RPG department. Langrisser is probably an SRPG, but it is so different from the usual SRPG. That's why games like Langrisser aren't here.
