Watch the original episode! ►

Theorists, it has been 10 YEARS since the first episode of Game Theory premiered on FItop. 10 YEARS!! This month we are celebrating that anniversary with a celebration of the channel. Today we are revisiting that first episode, "Game Theory: Is Chrono Trigger's Time Travel Accurate?". I am going to give you a director's cut of the episode, while fixing some of the graphics that... don't quite hold up anymore. Come along on this journey to the past as we talk about the time travel of Chrono Trigger - again!

    11:00 That is soft censorship and self censorship from the alphabet terrorists that will try to control what you can and can't talk about. Humor is humor, and it's obvious the times are the times. Don't apologize for who you are, and *never* apologize or back down to the mob.

    This is wonderful. I’ve been watching since 2012 or 2013, and it’s crazy that it’s been that long. The final thought and the end card song really brought old memories back. Here’s to the future. (Also I’ve really been enjoying Food Theory)

    the best thing when you grow is to look at your old stuff, as an artist looking back at my stuff bring me back to my childhood and how edgy I am and not really consistent with my drawing... and the best feeling after that is feeling "growing better" you may not realize it in short term but in long run? damm you might be suprise

    I have a theory about this time travel mumbo jumbo! What if were the first time line? Were the sprout of a tree. So if were the sprout then the future never happened right. Kinda like in Marvels Endgame. They were never shown in the original. So the future never exists. The past has existed. The closest thing we have of time travel is Einstein’s theory of the speed of light. Since were moving at a very unfathomable speed, that the world starts moving faster. The only reason why that works is because the “future” is happening right there. So the reason of why the tourist of the future isn’t here is because the future hasn’t happened yet. Edit: MatPat if you see this try to prove me wrong or support my theory.

    I personally prefer the older research paper like theory’s that’s loosely tie in to the game like the first episode rather then the new approach, I also prefer the stricter use of the script because it makes the video feel like some one is explaining a research paper and relating it to a game rather then the current formula where there is a hell of a lot of cringe jokes and pandering that runes the conciseness of the videos, which the older videos had.The better audio quality and visuals of the new videos are appreciated tho.

    It's written in Hinduism that time actually doesn't exist... It's made up. It's just a cyclical serious of events that will happen again. Like a wheel. Also yeah time travel is only only possible if you are given a boon of it by one of the main deities. Even then no one has done it because lord Vishnu wouldn't let the balance of the world distort. Interesting isn't it?

    9:06 "Fairly accurate portrayal of time travel." **Time paradox chooses random point in time to fix itself, but everyone retains memories of the thing that now never happened.** So... the theories have been nonsense back then and they are still nonsense now, is what this video is saying? Got it. Also, nice touch there, trying to shift off blame on other creators at 10:50 , really shows how you've grown as a person. Alright, enough being mean, this was kinda interesting to watch, but the older I get the less tolerance I seem to have for these theories and the more half-assed they seem.
