Chrono Trigger is one of the best rpgs ever made. Create a great cast of characters, a sweet story, kick ass music, clean graphics, and you've got an excellent game. It also featured a large amount of replay ability with the new game + feature. This feature let you replay the game with your end characters and showed many different endings.

Not only are the characters great, but so is the music. I listen to this song and undersea palace while laddering/studying all the time.
If you put this on while laddering, you will play like a pro
The game also featured a pretty cool fighting system. Characters can attack together to form techs. Some techs were just plain beastly.
So by now, some of you may be wondering what Flames of Eternity means. With Chrono Cross long gone, a few years ago a team undertook the ambitious project of creating a true Chrono Trigger sequel. This game was an interquel between Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. This hack was entitled Crimson Echoes. It developed new techs, a completely new storyline, new sprites etc. However at 98% completion, the group was issued a Cease and Desist order from Square Enix. The group decided to stop with Crimson Echoes and never released a finished version. The following is a badass video they produced.

When all fates for a Chrono Trigger sequel looked dead in the water, a new group emerged. This group began a new project entitled, "Flames of Eternity." This project was not endorsed by the Crimson Echoes team.
Flames of Eternity opened for Beta testing a week ago. All story lines are completed, they are currently just tweaking difficulty and bug fixing any glitches that come up. The game features a completely new storyline, new sprites, new techs, new dungeons and over 30 hours of gameplay. Save often! It is difficult.
