There's no denying that Chrono Trigger was made by some of the most skilled game designers of the era, bringing new ideas and fresh perspective to the world of RPGs. With beautiful sprites and environments, paired with an ingenius score and plot, it became an instant classic. It's been named one of the all-time best games, with a longtime cult following.
However, it had some loose ends to tie, which is where Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger DS come in—and Although they did
extend upon the story of the original game, the only real thing the sequels did was create more
Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes, a fan project made by ROM hacking the original game, sought out answers to the many questions that should never have been so needlessly cryptic. Based on much of the canon, the game masterfully provided solutions to the most puzzling, and frankly convoluted, issues with the game's jarring plot holes. So much so that much of Chrono Cross' various relations to the first game became much less farfetched—and far more engaging. You could play all three and truly feel as though the stories fit together, never questioning if the game's creators were the same.
So, with that said, my personal favorite fan project happens to Be Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes
