A lot of gamers use the terms tactical and strategy interchangeably. For instance, wikipeida redirects to tactical RPG when you search for strategy RPG. Could you explain what you mean by that distinction?
Yes alot of gamers do do that. Incorrectly.
A strategy rpg historically is pure grid. And movement is defined by square grid pieces
a tactical rpg is free roam where you stop at certain points on a map
for example if we were being nit picky
valkyria would be a tactical rpg series, agarest 2 is kinda there too
