You still need skill in decision making in an action rpg... before and during the battle


Theoretically? Sure. In practice? Not so much.

In FFXV the best strategy is always the same: equip your strongest 1-H sword (usually some incarnation of the Engine Blade, or the Ragnarok if you're willing to use that OP weapon) and spam warp-strikes. That doesn't change until you get the Zwill Crossblades post-game. Use royal arms for stat bonuses.

Blocking? Don't worry about it. Most of the time you'll hit the enemy and interrupt its attack before it hits you; on the rare chance you do get it, it's no big deal--you have two life bars, your buddies heal you automatically, and you have plenty of items to use.
Weapon type/selection? Doesn't matter enough to worry about; your strongest 1H sword is almost certainly better than the "correct" type/element anyway.
Link-strikes? They take too long. Just mashing attack or spamming warp-strikes deals higher DPS, and results in you getting hit less frequently.
Choice of which enemy to attack? I've played around fighting demons at night and I can't tell any difference between targeting the big stuff (like a red giant) first, versus targeting the weaker mobs first.

Now I do admit that those are shortcomings of XV in particular and there are other ARPGs that don't have those same problems.

I like it because it requires the use of brain cells, unlike most action RPGs. Dark/Demon's Souls is a notable exception.

Indeed. I've found the Dark Souls series to be the only ARPG that manages to achieve a turn-based feel in an action game setting (monsters take "turns" and are then vulnerable, there's an emphasis on builds and customisation, etc). FFXV could've learned a lot from the series.

Oddly enough there's more freedom in turn based combat. Exploration too for that matter.

It's not so much that we love turn based combat, we like combat that requires some thought or strategy behind it. Most good games that had turn based combat had this.

FF15 has none of this.

Persona 5 did. Most SMT games did. Previous FF games like 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 all did.

I like Turn-Based combat because I like playing different styles of games. I am currently alternating between THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Breath of the Wild, and PAPER MARIO Color Splash. I'm switching between an Action-Adventure, with RPG elements, and a Turn-Based RPG. Although Color Splash's Turn-Based system feels like an unnecessary bureaucracy, it's still fun. But I think the epitome of a Turn-Based system should be Bravely Default's/Second's. The problem with Turn-Based RPGs is that they can burn fast. What with spending time waiting between turns. It's good for BD/S to include a function to fast forward speed in battle. And not only that, but you can also control random encounters. I mean, they're fun, but they can get old fast. It's pretty much a classic for everyone to mention that they were annoyed by the random encounters with Zubats in Mt. Moon.

To try and summarize my thoughts: I like Turn-Based because they're a different genre of games, thus, offer an unique experience, but they should continue to develop and evolve Turn-Base.
