First off, I have to say thankyouthankyouTHANKYOU to everyone who voted. This lovely community has come through with flying colors, and y’all are awesome!
As for the poll, I can’t say I’m too surprised that Chrono Trigger won after hearing from you guys about the game, but the fact that it eked ahead by only one vote certainly says something about Earthbound. For most of the time this poll was up, the two games were running side by side. By late last week, the two were tied. I’m very happy that someone broke the tie, because I didn’t want to have to flip a coin or something. (I’ll admit that I’m a touch sad that Earthbound didn’t come out on top, but that only means it now has a top spot on my to-play-ASAP list. Alas, tis a case of the constant battle faced by gamers everywhere — too many games, not enough time.)
But enough with the typing, it’s time to get set up and start playing! The excitement…it is palpable, and I can’t wait to get started on this new gaming adventure. This series, under the reworked and totally mindblowing title of “Mission Chrono Trigger,” will be back in few Mondays from now with a first impressions post. If you have any initial and non-spoliery advice on getting started with CT, I’ll take it! In the comments, I mean.
Onward and upward with some time traveling, chronologically-driven, old school JRPG fun!
