When we met last Monday, I announced that I’d be starting a new gaming project: playing through a 1990s JRPG for the SNES. As I’ve been wanting to play Chrono Trigger for some time now, I initially thought I’d just pick it for the project and move on. But no, I thought, the community was so supportive in helping me with some initial decisions for my last project, Project 151, that I knew I had to turn to all you good people again.
Only then, Chrono Trigger got tons o’ love in comments on last week’s post, and I almost reconsidered.
Based on what I’ve come to know of Chrono Trigger over the years, I know it’s a game I simply have to play, for this mission or not. And the more I looked into CT, the more I realized just how many great JRPGs (for the SNES) I had overlooked. And with that, I decided to stick to my plan and poll the community. If CT wins out, then it was meant to be. If not, then think of the poll below as something like my own short list games-to-play-before-I-die, or something.
So, the plan is this. I’ve placed six possible games, some of which I know fit my criteria (accessible, short play sessions) better than others, in the poll below, which I’ll leave open for two weeks. During that time, the results will be kept hidden (whee!), but you can vote as many times as you’d like for whatever game you’d like to see me play and write about in monthly posts on this here blog. Any and all thoughts on the choices are welcome in the comment section, as are recommendations for other unmissable (or avoid at all costs) JRPGs. I’ll post the results and the winner on May 25th. A quadzillion thanks (which is a whole helluva lot) in advance for your votes, comment, and support!
