  • Hey there! Some great choices on your list; especially digging Chrono Trigger and Kingdom Hearts! That being said, where’s Final Fantasy VIII! Would it have made your top 10? Cheers.

    • Top 10 definitely, I was trying to fit it in my top 5 but couldn’t see that happening. I love the ones mentioned in the list too much!
