Traditional RPG of the Year: Handheld - Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV & Dragon Quest IV
It's a three-way tie, with no runner-ups! Why? At the end of the day, we couldn't choose. Some of us said "let's face it, Chrono Trigger is still the greatest game of all time." Others said, "but wait, that was basically a direct port, whereas Final Fantasy IV got a vast overhaul." Still others chimed in that Americans hadn't had a chance to play Dragon Quest IV in English since 1990 when the NES game "Dragon Warrior IV" was released. All three games are high quality. They're also traditional RPG remakes/ports from Square Enix, and they all deserve a lot of love. So we're giving it to them. The sad part? No newcomer to the handheld market could dethrone these three classic, tradtional RPGs. Let's see if new games can beat the remakes in 2009...
