The same can be said about 100% of everything good. Everything is overated because it's not perfect and yet someone somewhere thinks it is. But then what's the point of the word?
The word has its use for describing things that are put on a pedestal for one element, but severely lacking in another. Xenogears, and I do love it, is an example of overated, because for all its god tier story, it's actually a chore to play a second time.
No one is glossing over the bad parts of Chrono Trigger because it really doesn't have any. It's not perfect but it's pretty much well-rounded and excellent. I've played like, three fresh run throughs of the damn game with like ten-fifteen new game plus runs and I've never gotten bored of it over the last 20 years or so that it's been out. I've never once thought it even has a "great" story or "great characters" or a "great" battle system yet it's a "great" game. --- Hissatsu!!!

Chrono Trigger is one of the best JRPGs ever made. If you are a fan of the genre, definitely play it at least once.
Chrono Cross is a very good RPG as well, but know that it does NOT play like a sequel to CT. If you are expecting Chrono Trigger 2 you will be very dissapointed. --- NNID/PSN/GT: GeminiX7 FC: 0748-3100-6541 [FS: Tangelia, Ivysaur, and Maractus]
Wow lots of haters on here. I didn't think it was possible to play Chrono Trigger and not like it...it's just such a lovable game. --- "I watched the stupidity of mankind through the scope of my rifle." -Sniper Wolf
