DS version is the definitive version in terms of content, including some ending stuff that connects it better to Chrono Cross. 

Do note, though, that the DS version's updated localization has its plus and minus points.  For example, a plus point is that in the Prehistoric era,
Spoiler: show
Ayla and Crono are not having a soup drinking contest.  They are drinking "Skull Smash" and Robo even comments that the beverage has impurities/intoxicants.  So, yeah, they are drunk wasted. 
  On the other hand, a minus point is that
Spoiler: show
Frog no longer speaks in the "thou hath" style and that kills his character.  And when you bring him to meet Crono's mom, she calls him "Sir Knight"
 rather than "Mr. Toad" which takes all the punchline humor out of that exchange.

DS version offers some extra stuff in the form of extra dungeons and a monster battle minigame, otherwise it's the same game between every iteration.

That stated, what astounds me on a personal level as a gamer is this proved another entry in my "klyded top 10 games ever". A year ago that list would have almost entirely have been populated with titles quite old and I sit typing this now knowing full well Mario Odyssey, Nier Automata, FF XV and Horizon Zero Dawn all would make the cut.

By golly, I'm beginning to think this hobby is becoming more enjoyable as the years roll by.
Just took the developers all these years to really knock em out of the park for me the way they did in the 16-32 bit era. In reflection now, I finally feel comfortable stating that post that era (moving into the 3rd dimension, realism and polygons) really did begin a loooong, awkward and UGLY leg of gaming history for me. I guess what I'm trying to say is this hobby really was not as fun or pretty looking as it was when I was a kid for some time but it sure is now (and then some).

Sure there are a ton of things about to complain about in gaming. FPSs are eating themselves with pay to play. Which doesn't bother me really, FPSs suck (just a personal preference, if they are your thing then cool, but I'm right). Sports games are falling into this trap too, which kind of saddens me.   

We've been in a golden age of games and JPRGs in general for a few years now and sometimes it seems like oldz like myself don't want to believe it. There are good games in every genre that you enjoy that seem to coming out by the week.

And yet still we have WARGARBLLLLL WHERE MAH CHRONO TRIGGER and FF6?!?! crowd. News flash: they even remade your CT and FF6 like-games you always wanted. Its called I am Sestuna and Bravely Default. Oh and both those games are trash grindfests but I'm sure they'd be incredible where they belonged, in 1994. You are even getting your Secret of Mana. Oh and here comes a new Dragon Quest, whose archaic battle system and barebones story will probably bore you to tears by hr. 30.  RETRO JRPG MASTER RACE R U NOT ENTERTAINED?

My fav top 10-20 is now overrun with great games from 2014 to present day.

Finished Life is strange Before the Storm 9.5/10. Brilliant game (PLAY IT!), its another one that going to be in my top 20. I loved it even though I only played ep 1 of LoS a while ago. I somehow got the secret ending and wasn't even trying for it.

^That's awesome to hear, Klyde. Hopefully I can play more of those games myself soon, and join in on the all the fun I hear I've been missing out on thanks to my "Year of the Multiplayer" stint I had last year. Granted, most of that was due to me not having a Nintendo Switch, and a PS4 that never seemed to have enough memory for me to play a variety of games.

So, I finally installed a new 2TB harddrive into my PS4! Had to use all my Xmas gift cards, but it was worth it! I started off this weekend by reinstalling all of my Fighting games (they're quicker to test and make sure I don't encounter any fatal errors right off the bat), and played them until my hands hurt. It felt so good! King of Fighters XIV, Tekken 7, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, Street Fighter V...man, did I miss these!

Mario Odyssey: BEAT IT!!

What can I say, Mario seldom ceases to disappoint but he really shined here. This was/is easily my favorite of the entire franchise.

After enjoying the excellent Chrono Trigger podcast, I have been motivated to play Chrono Trigger again. However, I am unsure which version and which platform is currently the best. Can you make a recommendation? I have only played the Original SNES version back in the 1990s.

Thank you for your help.

Yeah, the GHB was pretty easy. The trenches actually made things easier for me because it meant the enemy cavalry unit jammed up the intersection which allowed me to either funnel enemies and kill them one by one, or just bait them across the wall.

As for Seth, like I said I think Ruby Sword is a terrible fit for him, as is Fortress Defense. I think TA is best used on either units with decent mixed defenses to ensure they can solidly counter their WTA, or on support units to buoy up their otherwise unremarkable combat (ie almost all dancers). Seth has balanced stats all around except RES, so I think he probably works best with a Slaying Edge or Wo Dao. Of course that would require that I waste 20k feathers promoting a Fir or something, plus it feels weird to have Seth holding one of those. If I wanted pure aesthetics I'd give him a Silver Sword to go with that title of his, but Silver weapons are crappy in this game. I guess until they add some more suitable weapon to the game he can help kill Hectors in Arena Assault or something.

In a first, the reward unit from the t_t is one of the 40%s. They should just do this every time! I also have a ton of the other bonus units so I'll probably have a fun time stomping all over it. I'd promote one of my Sakuras if I didn't have laughable IVs on both the ones I have.

My roll on the Radiant Dawn banner gave me 1 Red and 4 Greens because fuck me I guess. The universe balanced out that crap by giving me a 5* Seth as my free pull. Already had him at 4* and he's going to get lost in the sea of much better sword units I have, but I like Seth so I guess it's nice to have him around. Just sucks that he comes with a non-reforgable weapon that doesn't synergize with him at all (and he looks dorky holding it).

Followed that up with a pull from the Tempest banner giving me no blues to pull for HInoka, so I pulled a red and got a 3* Selena. Reposition is always nice.

I'm glad that t_ts still aren't treating F2Pers like second class citizens yet.

The problem with Seth in this game is that they made him into an Anti-Axe Tank, of which there's Bike, Hector and Amelia but even with Ruby Sword+ he's not going to score big numbers on any of them due to Fortress Defense and there are far better counters to all three of them.

Went and pulled for NY again and my Gaiden heavy luck gave me a pity breaker Boey. Fortunately, I was only at 3.25% so its not a big loss, but the Boey was +Spd/-HP (while Spd is a very useful stat to have, he kinda needs HP to run Earth Boost, otherwise he's kinda bad without it; then again, he's not like my current one who's +Res/-Def which is also rather subpar for him).

Edit: And that's another GHeB down. No wonder Reyson was able to actually inflict damage onto this guy, he's soft as hell (I just threw my Arena team at him and only needed to mess around with Sacred Seals once; his debuff didn't matter due to inflated stats requiring a 2HKO anyways, and he couldn't even do shit to Eliwood, even without the defensive terrain).

The PC collector's edition pisses me off.  The thing costs $149.99 and doesn't even come with a physical copy of the game.  If I'm being asked to spend that kind of money on a collector's edition, giving me a code to download a copy as opposed to a physical copy is a massive turn off.  I will definitely not be buying this.  As far as I'm concerned, the collector's edition is a waste of both money and the resources to manufacture it.
Well, since it is Steam only game with Denuvo Anti-Tamper drm there was no way it was going to be anything other then a code. I guess they could have made a cd, but it still would just be a code in the disc, instead of just a download code.

Ys VIII did the same thing
