It seems like there is a lot of discussion about the future of MMOs. The trend in most persistent world MMOs seems to be moving toward more action based combat. Games like Everquest, Warcraft, Star Wars The Old Republic, Rift, and Guild Wars all have very similar combat mechanics. Some innovations have been seen in these games but for the most part we're talking about real time combat.
My question is, would you play a game that is set in a fully realized three dimensional world, if that game utilized turn based combat? If so what would you want to see in an MMO of this kind. If not why not?
Most of the Final Fantasy series, and especially FF Tactics. For the most part these games were also set in an isometric world and not 3D.
Suggested by users, MMOS that mix 3D worlds with turn based combat: Wizard 101 and Atlantica.
Table top gaming is also an example of turn based combat, games like Warhammer and Warmachine would be considered tactical turn based gaming. The Heroes Of Might And Magic series is a good example of the table top style set in a video game.
