I loves me some video games. It doesn't really matter what kind, as long as their well made and fun to play. Over the years I've gone from just playing RPGs to playing almost any genre, from action, to FPS, to racing, to the occasional Madden game.

What about you, mon frere?

Turn based strategy is my personal favorite genre, but I'll play just about anything.

Sports and turn based games like Civ III and Alpha Centauri.

Usually RPG's, but I rarely have the time for them anymore, so I more go for the mid-length Action/Adventure games like Devil May Cry 3(!!!), Prince of Persia, and so on...

I used to love super nintendo rpgs, but somewhere along the line I lost my attention span and now it's mostly action/adventure for me. GTA, Punisher, MGS 1-3 (or, if you prefer, 1-5)... all well loved by me.

RPGs that have nothing to do with fantasy. FPS on the computer. RTS is a lot of fun, too.

Giant ass RPGs, and GTA style games where you do whatever you want.

09-19-2005, 11:25 PM
i like a lot of platformers like sly cooper, jak and daxter and ratchet and clank
action/ adventures like both prince of persias, mgs, gta
fighting games, soul caliber II, mortal kombat, tekken
never really got into rpgs, but i just picked up marvel legends and kingdom hearts
i'm strickly a console person, since my comp sucks and can't handle the newer games.

Whatever is in my system. RPG, FPS, sports. Love it all. Generally I prefer shorter games, only because I can get on to the next one all the sooner. And games tend to get repetitive the longer they go. 8-10 hours for an FPS or an adventure game is perfect for me. RPGs, though, are nice for the winter or when the lady is out of town.

I suppose if there's any genre I don't like, it's whichever one Battle Raper 2 is in... I'd put a link to the site, but I'm sure it would get me banned. All I gotta say is you lose a fight and then you get raped. Seriously. And there's some sort of cumshot minigame. Seriously.

Any kind of RPG, "tactics" ones the most. They are crazy addictive to me.

Point and Click adventure games in the old LucasArts style.

I have a real weakness for RPGs, games with worlds so big, you can get lost in them. I consider GTA- Vice City to be an Action/RPG.

racing games, specifically the gran turismo series.

and the old x-wing games.

I love platformers, but I think my favorite are RPGs.

09-20-2005, 05:20 AM
I like all games. I usually prefer RPGs, but I haven't had much time for them. Lately I've been playing the heck out of Dynasty Warriors, so I guess I like the button mashing games too. I think the only genre I'm not really into is racing games, and even those I'll play if there's a fun concept behind them.

I also like games with weird peripherals. I have a Nintendo 64 Tetris import that has a component that clips to your earlobe to monitor your heart rate and either slows down the game (relaxation mode) or speeds it up (heart attack mode).

09-20-2005, 05:55 AM
Anything (especially Action, Fighting, RPG, and Strategy) but sports unless it's something light like Tecmo Super Bowl, Mario Tennis, or NFL Blitz - those super in-depth sports games don't interest me at all.

09-20-2005, 06:08 AM
platformers, rpgs and action adventure/hack and slash games like onimusha and castlevania.

09-20-2005, 06:17 AM
RPGs and RTS games. Total Annihilation is still my all-time favorite game. I need some recommendations for some good RPGs for PS2 and/or XBox.

I only like FPS games on the PC, as I find them far easier to play with keyboard/mouse...

Epic freeroaming action-RPGs, where the story matters. Think Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, and the MGS series.

09-20-2005, 06:42 AM
RPG's mostly, especially ones based on fantasy storylines. My hand-eye coordination isn't really up to par for action or racing games. Also, whatever type is Sims 2, but with that I mostly just like building houses and making all of my families look like pirates.

i don't have one ...it used to be rpg's circa PS1 but now i'll play anything but sports games (because i get bored easy with them) If it has decent graphics and a compelling story i'll try to play it. Otherwise i'll proabably leave it at the store lol

Turn based strategy is my personal favorite genre

definitely. when the first x-com came out, it was more addictive than crack. i'd still be playing it today if it would run on modern systems - but the few times i've been able to get it to load from an xp command prompt, it was way to fast to control.

09-20-2005, 07:25 AM
RPGs formatted like GTA games

09-20-2005, 07:32 AM
Single player RPGs. Although, that doesn't explain why I've played Everquest for the last 6 years. :sad:
