Everyone who plays them, knows how most RPG battle systems work. You use you attack as much as you can until you need to defend and heal when needed. Rinse and repeat for many mediocre battle systems. Really great battle systems challenge the player to think in and out battle. What moves are they making in battle and how are they building their party outside of it. Octopath Traveler has all the markings for a great RPG that challenges the player, tactically and strategically through it’s stellar battle system.
