While Chrono Trigger (1995) usually takes days to complete, inichi decided he'd rather not have to sit through all the unnecessary stuff, like long cutscenes, unskippable boss fights and key plot events, so he did it in 21 minutes instead. "Big deal!", you might say — until you realize he didn't use NewGame+. Pick your jaw up off the floor!

As Bisqwit puts it: Who needs strategy when you can just blast yourself through the wafers of the universe?
