#3: Chrono Trigger (SNES)

Original GamePro Score: 5 out of 5 Stars

Claim To Fame: Chrono Trigger was a masterpiece among a dense field of Japanese RPGs, crafted by the "Dream Team" of Sakaguchi, Horii, Toriyama, Aoki, Kato, Mitsuda and Uematsu.

With a rich story, deep gameplay and memorable characters, Chrono Trigger's success was largely thanks to its high-profile team of creators, some of the best minds behind Squaresoft's Final Fantasy series and Enix's Dragon Quests. To the grand majority of RPG fans, this is the Holy Grail of the Super Nintendo, proof that once upon a time, Japanese RPGs could do no wrong. Chrono Trigger went on to sell like crazy in both Japan and America, and is considered by many to be one of the undusputed best role-playing games in history, and not just on the SNES system (it hasn't done too shabby on the Nintendo DS, either).
