Gamertell has posted an opinion piece that declares the SNES game Chrono Trigger the greatest role-playing game of all time.
From the article;
"What makes this game so great is that has every element you would want in an RPG. It was never really that difficult. There are a few bosses that will give you trouble, like the dreaded Golem Twins, but all you had to do was go up a couple levels and come well prepared with healing items and you would be fine. There was very little level grinding, which is something I hate in a game."
There are, of course, many more reasons offered in the article.
