I’m really glad that Chrono Trigger turned out to be my game project this year. I can see why people adore it so. It’s complex and touching story is wrapped up in simple vestments, making it much less intimidating than many modern RPGs and JRPGs. The game flows so naturally, despite containing unnatural and supernatural events. Overcoming its obstacles is challenging but never insurmountable. And playing into the drive to see Crono’s story through till the end is the game’s soundtrack. I’ve definitely looked forward to hearing news sounds every time I enter a new place. And how many new sounds there are! I’m kind of amazed that the composers managed to cram in as much music in the game as the did.

Some other very cool people won!
Following up on my post about Bytes that Rock!, the winners of their best video game blog award were announced as follows:
1st place: 2D Game Art Guru
2nd place: Gamers Sphere
3rd Place: 1001up
I’ve been following Gamers Sphere and 1001up for awhile now, and I highly recommend both sites to anyone interesting in keeping up with game and pop culture news, from the mainstream to the obscure. Both sites are especially infused with the personalities of their writers, making them all the more unique in a sea of game blogs/sites. 2d Game Art Guru is new to me. I’m not in game design, but after perusing the site, I can certainly see why it’s deserving of this recognition. The site is chock full of a wide variety of tutorials for anyone who’s in or looking to be a part of game design in some way. Kudos to its proprietor!

What’s that? WTF is Listmas?? Well now, just give me moment to explain. We all know that the throes of Christmas will soon be upon us, and it is with high holiday spirits that the bloggers of Murf vs. Internet and Healing the Masses thought to bring together people from the blogosphere through the magic of lists. Click on those links back there for more information, and if you haven’t already, be sure to stop by the host site, United We Game, where links to all these glorious lists have been and will be posted! I have a couple lists up on UWG along with the other admins, Hatm0nster and The Duck of Indeed, but my personal contribution to the celebration is as follows.
