Like multiplayer and MMO games. They're just usually so much more interesting than the regular single PC games, due to a more intelligent oppsosition ( well most of the times :D ) I guess.

Hate sport games: if I wanted to play a beach volley, I'd went to the beach. Although there is one sport game I enjoyed very much: "Jet Set Radion Future" for regular X-Box. But it's so much more than just rollerscating, so... ::) Soundtrack is very cool as well, although I'm not much into hip-hop it still does "rock". :P

Used to play lots of classical RPG's, but since they never had an interesting battle system I can't really differ one from another. So I don't play 'em no more. The one and true classical RPG was Fallout series, but since Interplay went down the drain recently, no sequel is expected, even if there will be one it'll be done by a diffirent team, and that proves to be a shame most of the time.

Love FPSRPG like System Shock 2 and Deus Ex (first one offcourse, second one is crap). Can't wait for Hellgate: London. Gee, I require an upgrade, right here, right now. :P

Would like strategy games, if there were more titles like X-Com, TA and Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds. Too bad Sci-Fi isn't very popular with game developers nowadays.

FPS mostley, and RTS. There's nothing I like more then Half Life 2 Deathmatch. Simple and uncomplicated ^^ But I have a few RPG's as well, oblivion is one but its so big I rarely find time for it. Best RTS will always be Total Annihilation! :D

I play all of the suggested genres, so I'll just list 'em all.

FPS - Love the adrenaline rushes and the multiplayer friendliness. Last game I played was HL2:Episode One

MMO - I play WoW. No need to say any more.

RPGs and Fighting games - Almost the only games I own on my PS2 and GC are either fighters or RPGs. I'm also getting a Neo Geo arcade this summer, for some more fighting games.

RTS - StarCraft, Dawn of War and CnC:Generals are the most common games played over the LAN I have at home.

Other - I loves myself some oddities, too. For example I was deeply addicted to X2:The Threat (space sim) for a while. Turn based strategy (Civ and HoMM series) are always a hit.

Right now fighters, FPSs and WoW are my major timesinks (not counting bullshitting in places like this).

Damn, how could I forget it. I love privateer type games as well. Playing Hard Truck Apocalypse at the moment. It's very cool, reminds me of Vangers: One for the Road, but then less paranoid... :P

I'm good at first person shooters, and i like them a lot, but i LOVE RTSs, even though i'm not very good at them.  I tend to save up money instead of buying units, then get raped by the comp.  In StarCraft, I would have 4 marines and a vulture, and the comp would flood me w/ hydras, but i would still have enough money to by 3 battle crusiers.

All you need to do to defend yourself in SC as a terran is to buy some tanks with a siege mode and build some rocket turrets. Not a soul will live through to see the HQ, trust me. Terrans are pretty weak at attacking, but at defence they're gods.

This has practically all changed since World of Warcraft. You can't pin me down to one genre, but here we go:

Me and SpiderChii play a lot of RPGs, like Final Fantasy and Grandia
I play a lot of driving games, like Sega Rally and Gran Turismo
I also like older platformers like Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario World.
I also like 3D adventures / platformers like Tomb Raider, Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time.

When i started PC gaming i was a die hard RTS player. Then when i got my next computer i dropped all my RTS games and took up FPS. During my time i dabbling in a couple of MMO's and RPG's but classed them as too time consuming to play properly. Then WoW was released and i haven't really played an FPS since.

Games i play now:

-WoW
-Second Life
-Dawn of War
-Planetside
-Freelancer
Current Games: Gears of War 2, Left 4 Dead, Rockband 2, Red Alert 3 (PC)[/center]

i really want to play DoW, cuz i acctually have a space marine army so i can relate.  It looks a very nice.
I don't play many games anymore, mostly because i don't have any and i don't really want to play anything on teh PS2. I play america's army sometimes, and i used to play WoW, and i used to have CoD, but there was a problem with it because of the new intel chippy things in the new macs.  None of the fun games i had before(StarCraft, Age of Empires II, Tropico, Aliens vs Preditors) work on my new computer, so i usually play internet games, sad i know.  I'm spending most of my time sketching, biking, and Warhammer.
