Seriously..you should just stop..playing RPGs. you clearly have never played a turn based game. Final fantasy..is turn based. Final fantasy tactics.. is turn based. Ogre tactics...is turn based. Front mission...is turn based. Xenosaga...is turn based. Wild arms...is turned based.

DAO is not turn based. Just because you can pause..dosn't count as turn based.

Best Dragon Age comment ever, from Eurogamer forums:

Quote:
It may feel like awesome stuff to people missing a serious D&D based RPG but for common gamer looking just for an adventure in a believable word and deep story, it may not be as catchy as lets say Uncharted 2

It is turn based. This is a statement confirmed by Dragon Age's developers. Dragon Age's combat system is based on a D&D-style rule set which IS TURN BASED. Other examples of turn based games of this style: Baldur's Gate II, Planescape Torment, Knights of the old Republic.

Examples of RPG games NOT turn based: Oblivion. Morrowind. Mass Effect (I think - I may be wrong).

The turns happen in real time as opposed to a Pokemon style combat system, but it's still turn based.

mass effect combat is not turn based.

in games like BG2, NWN, NWN2 maybe even KOTOR? the turn base console was visisble, so could see how all the turns were working out.
