Hello folks. I'm new to the forums, but I've been a reader of RPGFan for a while. I'm looking for suggestions for turn-based RPGs. They can be old or new and be on any system, though I prefer PC.
I realize turn-based can mean lots of things to lots of people. So here's how I define a turn-based RPG. It's one in which I control one or more people on an adventure and when I encounter an enemy, I can take my time and issue commands without worry. If I wanted to, I could even put down the controller (or keyboard), go make a sandwich, come back and not have been sliced or vaporized in my absence.
Some examples of games like this that I've played and enjoyed are Wild Arms (PS1), Final Fantasy X (PS2), Dragon Warrior (NES). I recently found the following games on Steam and GOG.com: Avadon The Black Fortress, Breath of Death VII, Cthulu Saves the World, Temple of Elemental Evil, and Arcanum of Steamworks and Magick Obscura. Of those, Breath of Death and Temple of Elemental Evil are exactly the type I'm after. No action happens until you're ready for it to happen.
Just wanted to put the question out to the community. What are some others? Thanks!
