When a role-playing game is as centered on time travel as the Square classic Chrono Trigger, you really can't argue when I call it one of the greatest RPGs of all time. Guess what I'll be playing come Monday?

You can Final Fantasy fanboy all you want, Squaresoft was at its absolute best when it released Chrono Trigger for the Super Nintendo way back in 1995. The script is by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii. The character designs courtesy of Dragon Ball's Akira Toriyama. Yasunori Mitsuda and Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu did the music, creating what many consider to be the greatest video game soundtrack ever created. All of these elements came together in a role-playing experience like no other.

If you've never experienced the time traveling adventures of Crono and friends, Monday's release on the Wii Virtual Console is your chance. If you have played it, buy it again. Pretend you come from the future.

Loved Chrono Trigger, but did anyone else besides me not like Chrono Cross so much? The whole 'you only level up after boss fights and big plot devices' thing just didn't rub me the right way. I grew up on grinding experience points for hours on end in all of Square's older games like FF4, Super Mario RPG, and Secret of Mana. I guess it just wasn't really up my alley.
