Chrono Trigger Retrospective Part 1: Subverting Tropes and Rewriting Your Future

Peter Tieryas of Tor.com writes: "Chrono Trigger is considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, JRPG of all time, and for good reason. So it’s surprising that when you break down the plot structure and examine the individual story elements, it’s actually rife with fantasy tropes. Because the narrative pieces are so familiar, it allowed the developers to plays with expectations, twisting them right at the moment when players thought they knew what was coming. It’s this experimenting with tropes I want to cover in the first part of this Chrono Trigger retrospective that goes from the beginning of the game all the way up until your preparation for battle with Magus."

The story is too old to be commented.
