Chrono Cross
Squaresoft (2000)
My favorite RPG on Playstation was released 20 years ago today.  It's the sequel to Chrono Trigger, which was released five years earlier and is one of the best role playing games on the Super NintendoBack To The Future 2 and Sliders made me a huge fan of stories about parallel dimensions, so this game was right up my alley.

I don't usually pre-order games, but Chrono Cross was one of the rare exceptions.  I remember that I pre-ordered this and Legend of Mana from Electronics Boutique in the Laurel Mall in Hazleton.  The store would give you a little gift as a pre-order bonus for some games.  For Legend of Mana, I got a sampler soundtrack cd that had five songs from the game.  It was very cool, but the gift that came with a pre-order of Chrono Cross was even better - a small battery powered clock with the logo of the game.  Very cool!
