More Thoughts From Me #116: Chrono Trigger

The first time I played Chrono Trigger…I didn’t like it. This was back during the SNES days and I didn’t like rpgs back then, with the expectation of Earthbound.

Now Chrono Trigger is one of my all-time favorite games. If you’ve played the game, I hope you…

A small group and the media tried to turn Mortal Kombat into a controversy  There have been a lot of Mortal Kombat games since then but none of them…

Now that I’ve played with the system some, is the SNES Classic worth all this trouble? How are the games on the system? How do they play?…
