Tuesday conversation: Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy VI?

Ah, the golden age of RPGs!

Which ones were your favorites?  Which ones did you play non-stop?

For me it was Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV (FF2 in the States), Final Fantasy VI, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Lufia 1 (and, through emulators, later Lufia 2), Shining Force (and, through emulators, later Shining Force 2), Phantasy Star IV, and Ogre Battle.  Later I really got into Final Fantasy VII and am among the many who think Square Enix would be absolutely stupid not to remake it with HD graphics.

Speaking of remakes, which games would you love to see remade?  Older games had to rely on plot, character development, better musical scores, and innovative game play in order to thrive.  Now, it’s often all about graphics.  When companies have take the best of the old world and given it a new outfit, the results have generally been good.  I’d love to see a Chrono Trigger remake and a Final Fantasy IV remake.

Also, to settle arguments elsewhere in my life…
