Let's Take a Look: Strategy and Roleplaying

Writer- Thomas Williams

What defines a role-playing game? This is actually a rather common, and quite interesting question that serves as an easy starting point to the discussion of what exactly defines a genre. Yet, it’s a question that has been discussed many times, and one that I find is rather all too easy. Instead the question that’s been bopping around in my head for a while has been about what defines the Strategy role-playing game. In a genre that seems adverse to any sort of role-playing and immersion, the genre that gave us turn based games such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, and Fire Emblem, what exactly gives us the right to consider these games RPGs? What can we do in order to enhance SRPGs, and perhaps make them live up a bit more to their name? Well, let’s take a look. (Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Culture, Dev, Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones)
