Gameboy Advanced version... it has more content then the SNES version and none of the annoying lag that's present in the PS versions.

The GBA has more content than the PS1 version, but it doesn't have the FMVs from the PS1 and you're playing on a smaller screen. For that reason, I'd go with the PS1 version. It contains the FMVs + you get to play on a bigger screen. And the load times for the PS1 version aren't as bad as people make them to be.

PSN vs PS1 disc is a matter of preference. Both software are identical, but if you're like me and you like having a physical copy of the game, you should get the PS1 disc.

So many games, so little time...

The Japanese version. Gba has inferior music, and snes censors my favorite scene in the game.

Yeah, PS1 versions of Chrono Trigger, FFV and FFVI are all unplayable. God knows why they couldn't do a decent port.

Really though, because the best versions of those are all on handhelds (FFV and FFVI on GBA, CT on DS) I think the best option is just to use a PC emulator so you can get the 'big screen' feeling.

I heard that they used certain effects that were specific to the SNES that the PS1 just couldn't replicate.

Unplayable is an extreme exaggeration. There are load times, sure, but it's not that bad.

PSN version, just because of the ability to swap saves between PSP/VIta and PS3.
