This doesn't have to be your favorite RPG, but I'm curious what people's favorite Turn-based Battle Systems are and why? To specify, this is a battle system that requires no "twitch" element of quick or timed button presses (so no loading bars), other than that anything goes. I am kind of a fan of simple systems that are deceptively complex, so for me my favorite is Dragon Quest, particularly 8 and 9. The combat is very easy to learn and perform but you can't be asleep at the wheel even on trash enemies and expect to do very well, there's a lot of difficulty there and if you don't properly equip your characters and make full use of all your spells, skills, and items you'll find yourself with a lot of dead party members.
