Chrono Trigger soundtrack voted 10th best in Filter poll
« 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.
