Best rpg battle system in your opinion?

I can't choose between Paper Mario TTYD and Mario and Luigi BiS. I love both of their combat and even though they are very similar I can't choose which I favor.

Valkyrie Profile 2 (Mages broke VP1) had one of the most complex systems I've ever seen in a RPG and FFXIII without actually grinding for hours was as intense as quasi-turn based combat is ever gonna be.

Those two alone surpass P4 by much, even though it's a great battle system.

I feel like I fought every battle in Valkyrie Profile 2 the exact same way, at least while playing through the story. There was probably way more to it to learn though.

The regular game did not really require too much work, however when you get the secret area stuff gets really intense really fast. It's almost like two different games.

The paper mario and mario and luigi series systems are the one's that come to mind in terms of turn based combat, but for action ones ive got like a big list that I can't state out right now but i'll name off the tales of series and kingdom hearts for now.

My favorite JRPG battle system is definitely Final Fantasy 12. RPG is a little broader, and I can't narrow that down right now.

Tales of the Abyss. For the most part, I love LMBS battle systems, primarily the 3D systems. I love Symphonia to death, but it didn't have as good a battle system (still fun as heck, though).

A lot of people seem to prefer Graces battle system, but I preferred the earlier systems. So it comes down to Abyss and Vesperia. I choose Abyss because of my fond memories fighting Legretta and Van.

Final Fantasy XIII-2. And no I'm not joking.

I'd rate FFXIIIs battle system really high up there, actually. It was a lot of fun to manage paradigms.


You should try Final Fantasy X-2 instead. It is very similar to XIII... With far less restrictions, full party control, more jobs, and no silly leader = death mechanic.


...Like XIII-2? lol

Aside from the more jobs part. And no full party control either.
