    Well, look at that. You're narrowing 'stat/value-based interaction' and equate it completely to 'tactics/strategy'. To that, I will reply 'Tactics/strategy =/= stat/value-based interaction', or that 'tactics/strategy isn't the only stat/value-based interaction', at least in RPGs. The most common and easiest example of stat/value-based interactions, would be stat/skill checks. Not just dialogue checks, but just about every kind of checks. From checks found in dialogue (Charisma/Speech), to the ones found in environmental interaction (Perception/Traps).

    I meant those as separate statements, otherwise I would've just double spaced before the second statement. I was referring to the whole Pokemon bit with the strategy/tactics thing. Lots of games have tactics but no roleplaying to speak of.

    Except Pokemon's strategy comes from it's rpg elements.



    It gives out pretty high money prizes and have been going on for years now... International at that not just within Japan.

    Am I supposed to watch a forty minute video to find out how that is the case?
