I prefer semi-RPG adventure games and the genres it's commonly combined with, like platformer or FPS. Includes Legend of Zelda, Metroid Prime, Prince of Persia, Mario, etc. Yep, I'm a total Nintendo geek. Never ever owned a PS2.

I also like RPGs, but I have this bad habit where I always stop playing them when I can't do everything in the game or when I come upon a major choice in the game. I am (or was) an FF geek in this genre, and I prefer the classic turn-based fighting.

I haven't played an RTS for ages, but they're not bad. Warcraft II and Red Alert are among my favorite PC games. I'm not that into FPSes. Never liked CS. Serious Sam is the shit, though. Fighting games aren't really my thing either. I like SSBM, but I suck at Soul Calibur.

Actually, I've never played an MMO.

RPG/FPS, then. I voted for RPGs because I play them more often.

I pretty much play everything (c64-amiga-pc), probably least fighting and sports games (unless, in the old days, california games & co... good times). What I've played most in the last years was probably FPS (battlefield) and 'other' (civ 3 & 4). Still couldn't make a choice...

Like Ankle, I play anything I find fun. The only genres I'm not into are realistic sports/racing/flight and managment games (Sim City, The Sims... except for Roller Coaster Tycoon).

Anything from Kid Icarus to Katamari Damacy, really. Quake 3, Advance Wars, Equinox, Lufia, Super Mario Bros, DDR, Secret of Mana, GGXX#R, Darwinia, F-Zero X and Shadow of the Colossus are all great games. Can't pick a single genre I play more right now... the last game I played was Crazy Taxi.

So...do we vote for what we're playing recently, or what we've played most overall? Or which one we enjoy playing the most?

If you deciphered the secret code, you've already figured out what my current favourite genre is.

A universe where there was no War of Independence because British colonial policy was more enlightened. An American Civil War after which Lincoln wasn't assassinated. A Second World War in which Hitler was. Or where the whole planet was invaded by, I don't know, space lizards or something.

Earlier I played lots of RPGs around the time Fallout 1-2 and Baldurs gate was released. If you count diablo 1-2 as RPGs you can add those too. Ive always loved RTSs too aspecialy Starcraft. But imo no game nearly as good as Starcraft has been released in that genre since Starcraft and that was like 8-9 years ago or something so dont play them much now either. Played some Counter Strike from around beta 5 to around 1.3. Love other FPSs like quake and UT etc but I suck at them ;e I just like watching it being played. Right now or the last few years ive mostly played MMOs when ive had time ranging from months with 14h/day to like now when I have about 5 hours a week of time over for games :P
