Tiffany Shafer states, "Chrono Trigger really is one of the masterpieces of role-playing game history. Originally created in 1995 by Square for the Super Nintendo, it is still held in high regard among many RPG enthusiasts. One of the biggest perks of Chrono Trigger is its storyline. The protagonist, Crono, is transported through time to correct events of the past, present, and future. Along the way, other characters from different time periods join Crono's party, aiding him in his quest. The decisions the player makes affect what happens later in the story. Crono cannot return to his own time of 1000 A.D. until the chronology of the world is restored."
