Tactical games, games that involved turn-based action, and often uses a grid-type field, are a popular type of RPG. Some games that are successful in this area are Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, and Suikoden Tactics. I myself have played many of these games, and find them quite enjoyable. In your opinion, without starting altercations, what are the pros and cons of such games, and why do you think they have been a successful market?


tactical games aren't always rpg u noe, there are tactical fps like operation flashpoint, armed assault etc.

when it comes to tactical rpg, my favourite is disgaea as i have recently acquired a copy of the game & touch anything else


Well, when you think about it, almost all games are RPGs. Just take the genre literally, and any game where you take the role of someone else to play the game is an RPG.

If that was only true, but in these modern days games get branded as RPGs mainly if they have even remote connection to stat, atributes and are usually set in fantasy setting (take a look at Dark Messiah or STALKER - are those 2 full fledged RPGs? I say no, but are damn good hybrids).

Tactical turn based games are fun to play since you can really feel the tension especially if you don't know what your enemy is thinking. It will also take hours even days to complete it.

One of the tactical games i liked was the Total War Series(especially Medieval:Total War). It was really good.
