There are elements of the game that are in place for strategizing. Save points ring a bell? Also, well designed game areas usually provide both implicit and explicit clues as to what kind of enemies...

Touche. But Renozuken's button prompting isn't predicated on strategy, but response time. In other words, the Squall's Limit Break contributes no more to any player's strategy than the different...

In other words, do you think that maybe the RPG has come to define such a broad spectrum of games as to have effectively lost its categorical significance? I mean, the name kinda spells it out, so to...
