I played CC long before I had ever gotten a chance to play its predecessor, and because of this I feel I was able to digest it without noticing the bad taste it left in the mouths of a lot of CT's fans. The battle engine was gracefully designed, the visual and musical assets wonderful throughout, and it delivered a plot with a very sophisticated and realistic take on some surprisingly mature themes for a video game at the time, while still retaining a charming and believable fantasy setting. The only thing that really bothered me was the pacing; the game felt somewhat rushed, especially near the end of the game, but that didn't keep me for enjoying it.

After I played CT for the first time, I began to understand exactly why people didn't like CC, for reasons beyond just not being "Chrono Trigger 2". Of the two games I still tend to hail CC as my favorite, and in this thread I'd like to see if we can build some bridges and maybe close the gap between Cross-haters and Cross-sympathizers.

CC fans, what do you feel could have been added to the game to enrich the experience as a "Chrono" title? CT fans, what did you really enjoy about the game? If possible, I think it would be interesting to collect ideas from the community, and draft a revised, more "whole" take on the game; I like to call it "Chemo Cross".

To kick things off, I think it would've been really cool if there had been a boss fight between Serge/Lynx & Friends and the Crono & Co. ghosts. Especially given their appearance as young children, it would have been a jarring, yet satisfying experience that would've given CT diehards a direct appearance from the cast they loved (in one form or another) and simultaneously identify CC as it's own, separate individual experience.

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / Can't rename Serge "Crono"

I pulled out my old copy of CC today, because I'm the kind of person who replays games they've already beaten multiple times in their hours of leisure rather than be productive. I discovered something interesting though; you can't rename Serge "Crono" at the start of the game. You can name him quite literally anything but Crono. The game simply refuses to accept it as a name and forces you to enter something else.

I encourage anyone with a copy of the game to try it out for themselves, because I had never even heard of it until now. It's interesting there's still things we're learning about a game released roughly 12 years ago.
