Title: Chrono Trigger soundtrack voted 10th best in Filter poll
Post by: ZeaLitY on April 25, 2005, 03:25:51 am
Filter, a television polling show on G4 Tech TV, recently completed a <a href="http://www.g4tv.com/filter/episodes/4044/Best_Soundtrack.html">survey of favorite music soundtracks</a> among its listeners. Chrono Trigger placed tenth on the list, earning a deserved spot in the top ten and challenging the other entrants, which included the GTA series and Halo's music. As a byproduct, however, Filter's forums have erupted with complaints that identify the GTA series music as primarily commercial and the Halo soundtrack as overrated. Hadriel has visited the forums for this news entry and has confirmed mass arguing is taking place (while some of us are wondering why Chrono Cross had gone totally unmentioned). While every group has its fanboys, however, it is nonetheless notable that a Super Nintendo game from 1995 that shook the world is still capable of packing a punch ten years later.

And that punch is just beginning.

Damn F**cking straight. Hopefully some kids or new gamers see that and say "Hmm, I've never played that game before I should check it out". CT is like the water against the stone, slowly but surely the water will win :)
I bet because of Crosses lower popularity it didn't get on the list.

Do you have the whole list anywhere? I wanna see what other games were up there. Never mind I didn't see the link you put in the post. Well at least OoT was second, I was worried Halo and GTA were the top two.

Bah.... everyone here should realize that most people don't want a story that will make you think... they want a cookie-cutter plot, with all the generic trappings most games have.

Sad but true.

Currently, if you scroll down, you can vote in the "Best RPG" poll, rating many different RPG's.  Chrono Trigger is up there, and seems to be doing well.  The episode won't air until May 2nd, so let's see how much we can influence this thing!

it would help CT get a highe score, but it also prevents it from getting first place.  Since I personally thing FF4 is the greatest RPG ever, i'm forced to give the entire FF series a 10.  But since CT is my second favorite RPG, i give it a 10 as well.  But there are gonna be alot more people giving FF series 10s, because it encompasses so many good RPGs.

True, but was there ever really a chance for us getting first?  FFVII is simply too popular, and would have grabbed the top spot simply via name recognition.  But with all the Final Fantasies lumped together, then we won't have four different FF's grabbing spots; just one.

As of now, the only ones ranked higher than CT are the Final Fantasy slot, and Kingdom Hearts.  There are three other games, can't remember which ones, that are hot on CT's heels, though, so vote!

Yeah, while grouping the FFs together lets other RPGs get into higher places on a list, it pretty much ensures that FF will be number one. I mean there's quite a lot under that franchise now-a-days...Heck there's even a few SRPGs and a MMORPG in the FF series now!

I'd still vote for Chrono Trigger...But the fact of the matter is, almost every one of these types of polls are just popularity contests. You can't filter stupid people's votes...You just...can't.

I sense an editorial/cursing binge coming out of my keyboard...right about now.

How did motherfucking GTA even MAKE either list?  God fucking damn it to the ninth circle of hell!  Who the hell are these fucking idiots with their heads up their asses?  There's a such thing as having your own opinion, but Jesus motherfucking Christ, even opinions can be goddamned wrong.  It's inarguable that GTA has altered the industry, but only from the standpoint of what the censors tolerate -- the rest of it is complete crap and demonstrates the potency of style over substance.

Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Morrowind, Jedi Outcast, and KOTOR II all should have been on there any day in place of that goddamn pile of shit.  GTA fanboys are different from FF fanboys in that their utter lack of taste and intelligence actually makes me hate the series more.  Whenever I run into an idiot FF fanboy, they're at least right in that FF7 DID have a good story.  But...gah.

Furthermore, why was Majora's Mask on the list?  I'm a massive Zelda fanboy and that still pisses me off to no end.  OOT DOES deserve to be on the top ten best stories list, but not MM.  Not a chance in fucking hell.

Hey, I'd vote Radio Los Santos any day...Ice Cube & Snoop Dogg were on it...How can't ya like that?

I think the only real reason I'd actually vote for GTA is because it was fairly original having radio music (and banter) as in game music. Not many games have done that...It was practically monumentous...But...w/e...

Maybe because both artists produce unutterable crap.

if these people who put out polls would give a basic test on the subject matter on what people are voting on, there would be alot less stupid people voting.

i dont want frickin geniouses to be the only voters, i want people who know what their voting about.

i'm waiting the the IGN reader's choice awards for the top 99 games of all time to get finished.  CT ranked 12 in the editor's picks, and if CT is on the list, its at least in the top 20 now (thats all they have left).

I'm not talking about just geniuses being voters.  I'm talking about people that are a little smarter than the average dope on the street -- people who aren't gullible, in other words, and can think critically enough to form their own opinions.

I hope you feel better -- I could barely read that.

I was talking about MM's storyline, not the music.  But even MM's music doesn't deserve to be in the top ten.  It's of good quality, but not THAT good.

CT takes #4 game of all time in IGN's reader's pick.  Still, the list is crazy.  StarCraft is #74, and RE4 is number 1.  give me a break.

My rage is growing by the minute, and I'm already angsty from female problems.

Somebody's going to get their balls chopped off.

I've heard good things about RE4, but there's no way it's better than Chrono, Halo, or ANY Zelda game.

Fucking goddamn morons.  Anyone else want to go on an adventure in hacking?

Yeah, that's true.  I guess I haven't been amazed enough by stupidity in real life, even though all the honors classes I'm in are also home to the snobby prep girl clique, who are possibly even stupider than the people that picked GTA for best story.

CT got higher than all GTA, and all Halo games.  the top 5 where:

5-Half-Life2
4-Chrono Trigger
3-Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
2-Zelda: OoT
1-RE4

the list was BS, i'd take the editor's picks any day over this one.   FF4 was in the editor's top 10 :)

Post by: Anonymous on April 30, 2005, 04:17:21 am
Those games only made the top 10 because it was a reader's choice list and those games are recent.  If the same list was made a year or 2 in the future, RE4, Splinter Cell, etc. wouldn't make the top 10.  Guaranteed.

The real gems like Ocarina of Time and Chrono Trigger truly shine by making the top 10 after 7 and 10 years.

If CT was made 20 years ago it wouldn't have been CT.  The systems at the time weren't capable of an actual story.

I think RE4 is good enough to be top 10, seeing as how its the best survival horror game ever, but its not number 1..
