“…But you’re still hungry.”

From: Chrono Trigger

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Narrator

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from Squaresoft very successful JRPG Chrono Trigger. The game follows Chrono and his band of time travelling adventurers in the hopes of defeating Lavos, an alien being who causes a cataclysmic event in 1999. Chrono and his friends travel throughout time to find a way to defeat Lavos before this happens.

The quote is mentioned in the future, specifically the year 2300. The planet has been devastated by Lavos. The party do find the remnants of civilization and a chamber called the Enertron, which can restore the party’s health and magic but does not satisfy their other needs…

Geek wisdom: While the Enertron will fill up the party’s life and magic points, it still does not make them not feel the negative effects of starvation. This just means that, while they will live, there is still the pain of not being satisfied. There is more to life than just surviving. Truly living life is enjoying life.
