No such thing as the "best RPG ever". This will only decide which RPG has the most dedicated spam base. If I was a betting man, my money would be on FFVII. That game has some of the most dedicated and twisted fanboys ever to grace the internet. So, I assume they would be more than willing to spend weeks juggling IPs and accounts each day, just to rack up votes for their favourite game.

This may be a bit random, but I just noticed this thread has actually been going for over two years now. Impressive.

By your definition, Starcraft is also a turn based game. Let me put it this way, if you drop your pad and stop issuing out commands, the game will still keep going. That alone means that the game is NOT turn based. Anyway, I'm not budging on the FFXIII thing, and this is really getting off topic.

Bottom line, its not a turn based system.

I meant "real time" in the sense that character actions are simultaneous and independent of each other.

FFXIII is turned based but a lot faster than the previous games.

FFXIII is not turn based. Its an action jRPG with menu driven commands. Its like saying WoW is turn based. Everything happens in real time while you only loosely control a single character because the rest are being managed by the AI, there are no "turns" to speak of, just a regenerating action bar.

The current trend in jRPGs is to replace all turn based combat with action orientated button mashing. Now I do understand this to some degree, but don't actually like it.
My personal take on this, is that with the right tweaks, turn base battles can still function in this and future generations of gaming. More interactivity during battles, less downtime during unnecessarily long animation sequences and maybe a little more strategy.

So my question is this. Do turn based battle systems still have a place in modern games, or have the developers taken the right path while I just refuse to move on.

After seeing some gameplay vids, Id say that this is essentially SFIV with Tekken characters thrown in. I was hoping to see more of a blend of both. Maybe slowing down the game a tiny bit and adding some more close combat combinations.

The thing about the Witcher 2 is, that while the screens look great, it really starts to shines when you see it all in motion.

This may sound strange to some of you, but Id actually like to see some modern games remade into retro styled 2d sprite based games or "retrofied" if you will. Suikoden 3 with a Suikoden 1-2 style and battle system would be great for instance.
746  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Can you name some "modern fantasy" RPGs? on: July 23, 2011, 08:30:00 AM
I don't think its a matter or naming their favourite games, its just that games people like are easier to think off. Its a matter of differently interpreting what "modern fantasy" actually is.
747  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition on: July 23, 2011, 08:27:54 AM
I'm actually considering it. Thinking about SFIV arcade edition as well, since its not that expensive. On a side note, do any of the Capcom fighters use an online activation code like MK or will a used copy work just fine?

This poll essentially proves that gamers, as a collective, are the equivalent of an eight year old little princess throwing a temper tantrum over not getting that pony. That's right, if you combine these people into one being, they form Kanye West.
I'm going to go ahead and credit Activision Blizzards high rating to WoW nerds, upset over some "horrible injustice" their blue text oppressors inflicted on them.
EA, well...no surprises there, nor do I particularly disagree on that one. Its a reputations that took years to build up.
What I find as hilarious is that Sony, for instance, leaked millions of credit card numbers and private data, yet Capcom is still higher. Granted, Sony did handle the situation and apologized, but Id say negative backlash towards something like that is a lot more justified than crying over a game that didn't get made.
Capcom is no saint, and they've made some poor choices the last few months. I for one have complained about a lot of these issues and will continue to do so, but lets not get crazy here.

I think he meant the post he was quoting, not the entire thread.

Eh, sure, why not. Though with all cameo characters floating about fighting games these days,  they could put Barney the Dinosaur or Gumby in, and I wouldn't be too surprised.
