Turn Based RPGs For Classic Role Playing

Turn based RPGs are the classic of the genre with combat presented on another screen. You encounter an enemy on the map, and then you get to battle the opponent in which you perform an action, and then your enemy does. Final Fantasy is a good example of the genre, and there are a lot of different versions built upon the core turn based mechanic. The RPG elements of collectible loot and upgradeable characters are present.
