Well, the title says it all. I have mixed feelings because on one side it gives you more time to think the perfect move to do, or to manage your characters but on the other side it feels anticlimactic in the middle of the fight have the opponents face each other like inanimate objects for an indeterminate time. In most JRPG's it looks kinda dumb but in other games like XCOM it doesn't bother me at all. What are your thoughts?

I don't like slow games, I mean they bore me when gameplay is not dynamic. I like puzzles and games where I have to use my brain, but slow paced gameplay is not fun for me.

I prefer turn-based. With real- time, you may have a plan and a strategy in mind, but once things start it becomes more about action and reaction than planning and strategy. Imagine chess in real-time, it would be more about who can move the fastest and less about out thinking your opponent. Real time with pause is a sort of in-between. In turn-based, don't think of your characters as sitting still. Time for them is not passing when they are still. Imagine the whole thing playing out in real time from their perspective instead. Look at it like the replay in Frozen Synapse at the end. If you don't know what Frozen Synapse is, it's a turn based strategy game. When a battle is over, you can view a replay of it playing out in real time.

Theres nothing wrong with reactioning and planning, because thats the exact same thing you do in turn based gameplay, you tought you had a plan, a strategy, but you never stick to it as new enemies pop up, enemies become unpredictable, some other new developments occur, theres always something new you have to react, something new you have to plan for, the very same thing you do in real time where its more mandatory.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it. I just prefer turn-based because i t has more strategic planning and thinking. You have time to think and plan ahead and be prepared for any changes. In turn-based combat, I'm always thinking several turns ahead, having multiple plans in mind for what I want to do, and plans for what my opponent may do. With pure real-time, there's less time to plan far ahead and it's mostly actions and reactions. I also feel more in control in turn-base combat where real-time combat I feel I'm just a spectator.

It's also easier to control multiple characters in an RPG or larger armies in turn-based games. With RTS games, it usually comes down to lumping all your units into one big group. In turn based games like Civilization, I can have multiple armies all across the map engaged in different wars. Playing Civilization in real-time would be a nightmare. Tactical combat like that in Divinity: Original Sin (1 & 2) would not be possible in real-time.

So you prefer real time based strategy because just like turn based, it has more strategic planning and thinking, gotcha! Surely so many options and decisions and tools at any given time, doesnt make it less planning and less thinking involved, surely not, ahahah. You also have time to think and plan ahead and be prepared for any changes, you ever heard of scouts? Building phase? Tech Tree Knowledge? Have you? Everything youre saying, applies to RTS aswell. the two arent apart from eachother that far as you want to believe they are. Oh, multiple turns in mind ahead, sure, fair enough, but then its because the combat has stagneted to a slow predictable crawl where its EASY to predict whats gonna happen next so you prepare for it. In real time, theres ENOUGH TIME to plan ahead, you have enough time while youre building your stuff to think, hmmm, with what array of units, from what direction, from which moment, i will build, move and attack at, to counter what, hhmmm. And thats fine when its mostly actions and reactions because strategy doesnt exist without its sexual partner reactions and actions. How can you execute your strategies without reacting to what just happened? How can you do that without taking action upon getting your NEW strategy out? Without those two, you dont have strategy, you dont, you just bum rush without thinking because youre not reacting, youre not taking smarter, more needed actions, thats not strategy, strategy doesnt exist without those two, capiche? Do you need examples which i could provide? YES, YES, YES, it IS easier to control multiple characters, but you forget one big detail i mentioned ALREADY WAY AHEAD OF YOU, YES YOU HAVE LESS CONTROL IN REAL TIME, DUH. No it fucking doesnt, if you dump all your avaivable type of units into one big group, youre not using them right. You seriously think, scouts, flankers, artillerly, maybe even support units, more fragile infantry units, should be right next to the big group that should be made of armored, strong vehicles? HELL NO. You send the tanks in first, you send the infantry right behind them, you send support units along with them like a camoflaguer or shielder, you either deploy or only now begin moving out your artillerly into position, while at the same time, you only now send your flanks to the sides or behind the main enemy forces or try to find their pesky special units, and only now do you send scouts to look for potential danger, to spot for the artillery, you dont fucking amass everything into one big group, are you mad? That shit worked in OLD, OLD RTS like Red Alert 1 and not every time if adequately prepared for such a dumb but effective strategy with either mines, a backdoor base, as many strongest turrets as possible, super weapon to annihilate those masses of enemy units, etc. If you dump all your many varied units in one big group like its fucking red alert 1 or starcraft, youre not going to win sonny jim if your opponent has a functional brain and knows what hes doing and isnt shit. In any RTS, i can have multiple armies all across the map engaged in different wars. Playing Command and Conquer in turn based time would be a nightmare (not for civilization though). Tactical Combat like that in Divinity Original Sin would be possible in real time.

I keep forgetting that having a different opinion offends people these days. I never said there isn't strategy in real-time games. I just find RTS games too simple minded. You generally have one resource and fewer things to manage. Turn-based games (the ones I like at least) have more depth to them than an RTS. They have multiple types of resources to manage, more types of units, each with multiple abilities, trade, diplomacy and lots of other things to manage that would be impossible for one person to do in real time. That's what I prefer. If you like real-time games, I don't have a problem with that. I don't know why you're so upset that I like different style of game.

Said it like someone who has never played an RTS before, litearly everything you just said is wrong. Command and conquer has 2 resources, credits and power, warcraft 2 has 4 resources, food, lumber, oil and gold, age of empires 3 has population, food, coin, wood and export if youre playing the asian dynasties civlizations. Do you know how many resources Cossacks has? 6, Cossacks games has 6 resources, wood, food, stone, gold, iron, coal, so youre dead wrong there. RTS games are not simple minded, again, youve never ever played a RTS before so youre just talking utter nonsense. And theres a crapload to manage, again, youve never played an RTS before, you have no idea you have to manage building, haveresting, training, scouting, positioning, formation, composition and eventualy the massive huge armies youl make, you have no idea what youre talking about. 1 faction in any random RTS has more units than any of your turn based games you can think of. Warcraft 2, humans have 14 units in just their faction FOURTEEN. Command and conquer tiberian dawn, how many units does NOD have? 16, Nod alone has SIXTEEN units. Krush Kill and Destroy Xtreme, how many units does the Survivor faction alone have? EIGHTEEN UNITS by just survivors alone. So once more, you dont know what the fuck youre even talking about, RTS has more units than TBGs, period. Multiple abilities? Red Alert 3, Warcraft 3, Starcraft 2, etc. would like a word with you. EVERY SINGLE UNIT in Red Alert 3, HAS AN ABILITY, there is THREE factions, how many units does one faction have? Allies for example have TWENTY FIVE units, that means TWENTY FIVE ABILITIES, SEVENTY FIVE in total roughly around in the whole game, and youre here saying theres fewer things to manage, get outta here with that god awfull ignorance, if you dont know what youre talking about then dont talk. Age of Empires 3, Warcraft 3 and more have trading and diplomacy, your argument is invalid, sure, not every RTS but RTSes have them here and there. Its not impossible to do in real time, you just dont have to be slow or thinking youre in a race. Im not upset at you liking a different style of game, im upset that youre lying.

if you dont know what youre talking about then dont talk

You should probably take your own advice. I've been playing games since the 1980's. There was a time when I was into RTS games. I've played games (Populous & Dune) that are now considered RTS before the genre "RTS" was coined. I've played Command & Conquer: Red Alert, Red Alert 2 and Tiberian Sun, Age of Empires and more that I don't remember the names of.

I eventually grew tired of RTS games. They're all very similar, and they just don't appeal to me anymore. They are simpler games that have less depth and complexity than turn-based games. There is nothing wrong with that, so don't get all upset and post another ranting wall-of-text. They tend to be designed to be played in one sitting, lasting an hour or two and there is only one victory condition, destroying your enemy. I'm sure there may be some RTS with different victory condition, but you don't need to go out of your way to find them and tell me about them because I don't care.

I've also played all of the Civilization games from the original up to Civ V. Civ V alone has more of everything than any of your RTS examples. Civ V Complete has 43 playable civilizations, 72 non-playable city states and 144 different units. You can have up to 22 civs and 40 city states on the map. There are 40 resource types, which you will never get all of within your own territory, so trading and diplomacy are necessary. You also have to manage gold, food, production, happiness, culture, tourism and religion. You have to manage your cities, what they produce, what tiles to improve, what improvements to place on them and what buildings to build in them. Some buildings require certain resources or terrain to be available in the city, some you can only have one of in your empire and some there can only be one of in the world. The placement of those unique buildings is important. You also have to decide on what government type to have and pick social policies and ideologies. There are different ways to trade, through diplomacy or trade routes. You also have espionage and the world congress, and different victory conditions besides domination (cultural, diplomatic and technological). I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, I haven't played a game in a while.

There is a reason the majority of 4X games are turn-based, they are too complex to be played in real-time. Before you start typing, I know there are real-time 4x games, but most allow you to pause at any time, where as pure real-time 4X games are not as complex.

I only liked very few turn-based RPG games, but dislike them otherwise. XCOM: Enemy Unknown was lots of fun but made me ragequit due to an insane difficulty curve (from one mission being challenging, to the next with the enemies 2-shotting your entire team). Overall I think most turn-based games, especially RPGs, are boring, obnoxious, repetitive and tiring. Most are pointless and strategy doesn't really matter once you figure out you just have to spam [skills] until you win. I'd rather play the same kind of mindless grind while actually doing something via a realtime combat system than turn-based crap.

Personal opinion of course, but yeah, that's my thoughts on turn-based combat systems. If done correctly (turn-based strategy such as XCOM and Civilization) it's fantastic, but as a combat system... eh.

Guess I'm really bad at those. :P

Lemme guess.. It was the first time you ran into Mutons. And all of a sudden you were on the receiving end of cover-stripping grenades and other fun stuff.
For Enemy Unknown, that's usually the mid-point of the campaign where the challenge bumps up and you need to re-think your tactics. (Also, the point by which you really want to have researched better weapons & armor)

Their good, alright. overdone games maybe i guess? But RTS is far better, far superior, have Fallout Tactics as an example, its far better in real time than turn based, much more fun, much more fluid, much more, well, everything, except control and ability to asses, that becames harder but honestly can be worth taking a risk. But nyeah, i think turn based can or is boring and real time, god bless command and conquer and dune, is better. Thats not to say i didnt enjoy turn based games, Warhammer 40K Squad Command on the PSP by THQ is one of my all time favourite games and its a turn based one, i love that game, i realy do. Maybe it just depends then realy, i dunno. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG1I9RSxh74 but as for the vote, i will have to vote for a nay.

I hear this a lot when discussions like this come up, and it doesn't make any sense. Dialog is turn-based, but it doesn't disrupt the flow of the game. As I said above, I feel more in control of my characters in turn-based combat, where real-time combat I feel like I'm just spectating. I don't mind real-time with pause if auto-pause options can be set up right to get a turn based feeling. Divinity: Original Sin would have been much less enjoyable with a real-time combat system.

Dialog is mostly turn-based in real life. Unless of course you're rude.

Divinity: Original Sin is a good example of how to do turn-based combat in an rpg well. Personally I think that real-time with pause, which is usually a great option all around, would have also have worked for the game. Divinity: Original Sin only works as turn-based because of its tactical focus.

The big problem is that so many turn-based rpgs follow the stereotypical jrpg style of combat. That style of combat usually involves spamming the same moves over and over again. More thought is required to play even the most generic action rpg than these turn-based games.

There are polite ways to interrupt someone, or if the person you're talking to is a jerk, you can just walk away. That's the one thing I liked about Skyrim's dialog, just to be able to walk away from someone at any time during dialog.

Divinity: Original Sin is a good example of how to do turn-based combat in an rpg well. Personally I think that real-time with pause, which is usually a great option all around, would have also have worked for the game.

It probably could have worked with a RTWP combat, but I don't think it would have been as good. It also probably would not have had coop if it used RTWP. I still prefer pure turn-based, but I do agree that RTWP is a good all around system though. If it has the right auto-pause options, it plays almost like a turn based game.

The big problem is that so many turn-based rpgs follow the stereotypical jrpg style of combat. That style of combat usually involves spamming the same moves over and over again. More thought is required to play even the most generic action rpg than these turn-based games.

I don't like JRPGs, so I probably have not played the games you're thinking of.

I like turn-based JRPGs a lot! It gives you time to think and consider your plan. Active Time Battle systems like in FF12 are the best of both worlds, allowing for dynamic action with gambit systems but you can stop the action at any time to have finer, more pin-point controls.

That said, I'm not really a fan of extremely long battles found in some strategy jrpgs (Disgaea).

I have to say that I think that they are for specific folks. For example, I don't enjoy having my physical abilities limit my ability to game. Reaction time and complicated controls making a difference in my gaming is something that, in general, I just don't love as much as I do a game where whatever it is I want done can be done without interference from the real world. So I LOVE turn-based stuff. 4x games, RPGs, whatever genre. Twitch reaction stuff is fine for me for a lot of online games, but when I'm by myself I'm just not excited by having to spend hours and hours practicing the controls just to do a thing that is intellectually obvious to me. There are a lot of people though who LOVE the process of perfecting controls, getting the perfect reaction time down, etc. it's just not me, and I think that's why we still see both.

I'm not talking about the difficulty, at least that's not the most important thing here. Dante was a terrifying fight for me because at that point of the game you're all too aware of how dangerous his attacks are, but more importantly, you know that there's barely any room to work around them and this is the part which makes this so stressful. Taking damage isn't an issue of "if" but of "when and how much". Also, if he starts getting too aggressive/you dare to fuck up even once, the game, as it's a turn-based jrpg, forces you to watch how the boss wipes the floor with your whole party which is hardly motivational. Real-time combat doesn't have any ways of properly inducing this type of anxiety imo.

I prefer turn-based strategy game series (such as Age of Wonders, Heroes of Might & Magic) over RTS series (such as Warcraft). Now, that isn't to say I don't like RTS games, I just like TBS games more.:)

I also like turn-based combat in RPGs when it fits the game. Good examples would be the Infinity Engine games (such as Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Fallout 1 & 2). I also really enjoyed Fallout: Tactics (a nice TBS game).

Fallout Tactics is not a TBS game because its broken, boring, unfun, shitty in that mode, Real time is where its at. And TBS doesnt fit Fallout 1 & 2, the game is a TBS due to technical limitations. And while i love HoM&M, Warcraft is obviously better.

Turn based strategy >> turn based RPG for me
Turn based rpg is just slow, repetitive, and their lack of depth (simple fights, time to think, everything is calculable) is often "balanced" out by resistances, gimmicks that have to be from an external source than your character, like weapons, equipment, or levels - ending up grinding for levels or for equipment as a solution.
On the counterpoint, games like Heroes of Might and Magic - manage your resources, you town(s). Recruit creatures and heroes, and try to move the heroes (and a necessarily strong army) to points of interest - mines, enemies, collect resources -. Manage your heroes' levels, expertise, and how to utilize it. And then each battle is different based on the map layout, terrain type, enemy composition, even by how many stacks of units you have ends up manipulating the fight.
Turn based RPG more often feels like a slowed down version of what I would enjoy, and removes the feeling of doing something, taking actual part in the fight. With strategy it's fine to only click aorund and pick options from menus, because you're a commander.
edit: with the turn based RPG I realized I had JRPGs in my mind, with the "pick from menu" type of combat. western RPGs like Fallout and Arcanum are way more to my liking, or even Knights of the Old Republic.

Yes it is about Tactics, if you play it as a Strategy game, there will always be it about tactics, where are you attacking from, what unit compositions are you attacking with, are you rushing, turtling or waiting for him to attack and then use the backdoor to base rush? There IS simply ENOUGH time, thats what keybinds are for.

There is not enough time to properly position units, if you watch "pro" games/tournaments (i.e. Starcraft) they usually pick up everything, pack it as a single group and go towards the enemy base (or whatever they want to attack). They don't really place armor in front of infantry, position artillery or things like that, they just go forward with everything they have in one big blob, the only actual decision is "where do I send this blob".

Yes there is, you just have to be aware of your enemy by using scouts, and if you see movement, or you know what their going to do based on your vision or his previous actions or attacks, you prepare as needed, there is time, you just have to be ready for it. but thats STARCRAFT, thats liteartly the only RTS where that happens, Starcraft 2 litearly a blob control game, people call it that, and just that game, dont accuse other, actualy good RTSes with that.
