Just played through the whole thing in one sitting. 17 hours counting the two brief (5 minute breaks) I took..so..definitely less than it looks like according to these stats. Although I do honestly love the game.

it took really long like 25 hours to me to play it through but it was worth it. i love-love-love the game. The music and everything.
i has fun. Although there were some really mean bosses that killed me quite many times. I tried to yell at them a couple of times but that didn't help :D
When i was about final battle i had been killed so many times i searched so help to kill Lavos http://chronotriggerwalkthrough.net/lavos-core/
and i was lucky to get through and see one of the magnificent ends of this game :)

I was looking at this and saw the release date had a typo considering games weren't created until 1972 and it says that chrono was released in 1969

I had the original cartridge, and I took 196 hours to finish the game in my first attempt. In that time I had a poor ENglish and it took me 3 months to reach level 47 and fight Lavos.
After some savegame losses, I tried again and again, and in 1999 I finally was able to finish the game in 12:45, with level 84. I tried to beat the game more times, and never was able to finish it in less than 12:45. In fact, I've got this record five or six times, so I decided to register it here to see how good I was in this game.
Never thought no one was able to beat it in less than 12:45 without bugs and glitches or cheats, it is something new to me, since it is the very first time I am part of a ranking, even though it is not an official one.
