What do hardcore RPG gamers have against RTwAP gameplay?

Real time with a pause.

It seems like most hardcore RPG gamers prefer turn base. Not sure why, I loved Baldur's Gate.

Real time is borderline hack and slash.

Baldur gate not turn based? Its ad&d rules.

I play too many different games to even care.

I don't know im pretty sure the characters actually move in sequence. Try enabling autopause in the menu to see how it works. As well as the dice rolls.

I prefer turn-based systems because real-times systems feel sloppy.

I'm okay with real-time-with-pause, however.

Baldur's gate is D&D made to look real time to the unsuspecting eye. But it's not.

Yeah, I don't understand what people see in turn based. I DM table top RPGs (I actually wrote my own rule system based off of the unauthorized modification of D&D used by Cal Tech guys about 40 years ago), but turn based in table top is necessary to simulate actions that happening in real time by various players. Actually graphically depicting characters standing around, taking turns hitting each other looks ridiculous, and is completely unnecessary when you are playing on a machine that can move multiple characters and calculate attacks and damage simultaneously.

I am very disappointed that the Torment quasi-sequel is going to be turn based.

I feel exactly the opposite.

Real time with pause means there's more fluid possibilities.

The moment a game is turn based, it just feels completely off to me, it also takes me out of the combat -completely-.

I would have never enjoyed Baldur's Gate in the least if it was turn-based. Yes, its "disguised" a lot, but its still real time. I simply -cannot- stand turn based, so its a real shame what we get tends to have all the bad elements of turn-based or other old gimmicks instead of just going real time with pause.

(Think the newest might & magic X, its turn based, AND its grid based, oh god stay away)

For me, I prefer either full real time or turn based.

This half way in between is annoying to me IMO.
