Turn based vs. Realtime RPG?

What type of RPG playing style do you prefer? Turn based or realtime?

I don't generally mind either playing style, however I do prefer realtime over turn based. I get bored having to manually select every little thing sometimes.

I really like all RPG styles, I am not to picky when it comes to RPG. Granted realtime is better than taking turns, but I will play both, it doesn't matter to me.

I'm not a big RPG fan, but it's gotta be realtime. Turn based puts me to sleep.

Realtime definately keeps me involved in the game for much longer. Turn-Based has to have a really, really good system in place for me to want to pay attention for long periods of time.

I much prefer realtime, as it immerses me more but I have played fun turn based games.

I like both kinds. Real time is nice from time to time, but on longer trips, i prefer the turn based ones, because it give me time to think about what i'm doing, and also throws a little variety in the mix.
