What is it?

The 1999 PlayStation role-playing video game Chrono Cross that was made by Square.

What is it about?

This is how Wikipedia describes this video game:

Chrono Cross (クロノ・クロス Kurono Kurosu) is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square for the PlayStation video game console.

It is the successor to Chrono Trigger, which was released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Chrono Cross was designed primarily by scenarist and director Masato Kato, who had help from other designers who also worked on Chrono Trigger, including art director Yasuyuki Honne and composer Yasunori Mitsuda

Nobuteru Yūki designed the characters of the game.

The story of Chrono Cross focuses on a teenage boy named Serge and a theme of parallel worlds.

Faced with an alternate reality in which he died as a child, Serge endeavors to discover the truth of the two worlds’ divergence.

The flashy thief Kid and many other characters assist him in his travels around the tropical archipelago El Nido.

Struggling to uncover his past and find the mysterious Frozen Flame, Serge is chiefly challenged by Lynx, a shadowy antagonist working to apprehend him.

Upon its release in Japan in 1999 and North America in 2000, Chrono Cross received critical acclaim, earning a perfect 10.0 score from GameSpot.[2][3]

The game shipped over 1.5 million copies worldwide, leading to a Greatest Hits re-release and continued life in Japan as part of the Ultimate Hits series.[4][5]

Chrono Cross was later re-released for the PlayStation Network in Japan in July 2011, and in North America four months later.[6]

Final Thoughts

This video game is on my list of best, favorite, and most nostalgic video games of all time.

It also has some of the most memorable and best and most nostalgic music and opening of any video game that I have played, and just hearing part of some of the songs and seeing the opening (which you can see in the first video of this post) can bring back memories and feelings and emotions and make me almost tear up.

This is a video game that my brothers used to sometimes watch me play and sometimes they would play it as well, and so this video game is associated with some positive memories of a time when my brothers and I spent time together and had fun.

There is so much that I can say about this game and so many memories and stories that I could talk about that are associated with this game, but I will not because it would take way too long and I would still miss things. 😀

It is a shame that they never made another Chrono game yet, and I think that this video game would have become more popular if they had continued developing it a bit so that they could have released it on the PlayStation 2 console instead and it would have been even better.

The end,
