As a kid, I projected myself into videogames. It was easy, especially when I played as some nameless character. And when playing an RPG, I could rename the characters when the option presented itself. In Chrono Trigger, I was always Crono. His best friend, Lucca, was renamed after Darlene, a girl that’s been my closest friend since I was 8 . Robo, Frog, Ayla, and Magus have had an array of names over the years — always people closest to me.
I loved this game as a kid.
