I do understand it's all of you people who don't understand but think you do. He was reflecting what I said earlier as correct. You people as with most people are not understanding game design. It's fine that you people in this thread don't get it.

No, pretty sure you're just out in space. Because it's not like we don't have any software developers here, either. You've been disagreeing with some folks who actually know pretty well how digital systems operate.

It's not that complicated. Does the end user experience what would be considered a "turn" or not?

If no then it's kind of irrelevant and not that useful in classifying gameplay mechanics. For example, if I say a game is turn based you generally know what I mean without being pedantic about it.

Dude........ no. "Turn-based" games are defined by a specific type of design, where players and combatants "take turns" which generally play out via a menu system.

The term doesn't simply refer to any game with stat-based combat, or any kind of "waiting." I mean, your definition is so broad that literally any video game could be considered "turn-based."



My outlook right here. Turn-based means something specific. Of course there are twists like any game genre/category, but overall it is distinguished by menu-driven battles where you and any number of enemies take turns while fighting in a distinct state apart from the rest of the game. Anything other than that is.. well something else.
