    I've never liked Turn Based, it's too easy. RTS games are the perfect test of skill, strategy and reflexes. With turn based games, there is very little pressure and the games move along too slowly. RTS ftw.

    You know, I hate RTS'. Those games are simply diversions of constantly clicking. They all seem to focus alot on collecting recources (unstrategically i may add), as opposed to strategic battles. The battles themselves have no strategic value. The only "strategy" involved is to make sure the number of units you have is larger than your opponents.

    That would also be like comparing....lets see something you would get...mario to metroid to completely different game styles, final fantasy 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12 are all ATB so you cant just sit there all day

    Final Fantasy is not really a Turn-based strategy game (it's an RPG). The only game in the series that can be defined as a TBS is Final Fantasy Tactics. A game that can be defined as a TBS should be games like Civilization or the Nippon Ichi games (Disgaea, Phantom Brave)

    Real Time Strategy is always more of a challenge than turn based strategy.

    people are getting tbs and tbc mixed up

    turn based strategy

    and turn based combat

    turn based strategy is fall out, tactics, front mission

    turn based combat is final fantasy 7 (go ahead and scream its active battle. i call bullshit) xenogears, that stuff

    FF is not a TBS game but it does have turn-based combat system. (At least the earlier games)

    Anyways, while TBS are easy, I simply hate it. What if it's your opponent's turn? I'd rather go fast paced than wait 5 minutes 'till he's done. (I'm not really that patient)
