OK, I have a confession to make here. Up until this past week, I have never played Chrono Trigger.

For one reason or another over the years, I hadn’t owned, borrowed, or rented this game. While I wasn’t really into RPGs until after I played Mario RPG and FF VII, the fact that I’ve never looked into it over the years since really isn’t excusable. Especially after hearing so many people gush over amazing it is.

After realizing this, I decided to rectify that mistake when I picked up a copy of Chrono Trigger for the Nintendo DS. I’ve played almost an hour so far, and have only started to see what this game has to offer, but I like what I see so far.

This early in, I cannot comment on the story too much. But I can say that I love the combat system. The lack of random battles, plus the ability to team up with party members for Double and Triple Techniques are awesome, and I cannot wait to see what other abilities the game has to offer. The characters are interesting so far, though my current favorite is Frog. Because, only just a short time in, it’s obvious he is a badass.

I got a lot more of the game to see, and I cannot wait to see what else this game has to offer.

Has anyone else ever discovered a great game long after it’s initial release? Is there a great game you’ve been meaning to play, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet? Or do you just want to talk about how awesome (without spoilers) Chrono Trigger is? Let me know in the comments below.
