What genre do you like the most?

Post  gaiages on Mon Sep 29, 2008 8:35 pm

I thought it'd be an interesting thread, seeing as it's a bit broader than the favorite game thread. x3

So, what's your favorite genre(s)? I'm quite fond of RPGs and Fighting games, but I'll go for anything, even... quirker titles (Katamari anyone?).

Strategy (Fire Emblem) and Adventure (Zelda, Metroid). Those are my favorite. Then shooting.

RPG's are my favorite, the occasional action/adventure is good as well.

RPG, Adventure, and quirky (Jet grind/set radio) are my favorites.

I also sink a lot of time into sim games (Well THE sims for one and like harvest moon games, simulation)

I have no real prejudice against any games (even sports games). I am an older gamer and have been gaming my entire life. (I was around for the Apple IIGS if that is any indicator of my age). I use to have huge prejudice against genre and was a big advocate of the console wars back in the days of the Genesis and SNES. Now-a-days, after playing so many games and experiencing the gamut of gaming goodness, I've come to find that any game, regardless of it's genre is as good as the content and passion the developers have with the game. You can see it when you play it and it just makes sense.

So in the end, depending on my mood and wants, depends on my genre.

Adventure stuff (like Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Etc.), then sandbox stuff (like GTA), then platformers, then shooters, then fighting games. Everything else is kinda tied below that, but I loves 'em all.

Platformers, Adventure, Exploration, and just quirky stuff (such as Jet Set Radio, Pikimin, or Elite Beat Agents)

Everything else I'm so-so on...

hate RPGs though.

Zelda, Metroid, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror or Great Cave Offensive from KSS.

I like games that make me look for junk. Treasure hunt or weapon hunt. I love it more if it's a 2D platforming game that does this. I like going up and down a map and finding things that help progress the game.

It's weird because I like it in some cases and in others I hate it.. such as in NES Zelda or in Wind Waker at the end with the treasure hunting thing.

Exploration is essentially adventure. However there's a greater emphasis on backtracking and searching for items... compared to say... Okami? Sure it's Adventure but it's a sort of adventure I just enjoy more.

Pikmin can be classified more as an RTS. But whatever.

I wasn't sure what it was so I sort of just felt it was a quirky game. I guess I like RTS, too Smile

I too like Pikmin... a lot. But I wouldn't say RTS's are my favorite genres, primarily because I can't name any other RTS's that I've played/like. But I dunno, there's just something about Pikmin.

I love anything but sports and racing games, excluding Wii Sports and Mario Kart. Top pick probably goes to Adventure games though.

While we're at it, JSR and EBA are Rhythm Games.

If a game is good, I'll play it. I just hate sports games, sans Tony Hawk and anything by Midway.

And I have a soft spot for rail-shooters. <3

I'm sorta all over the place. I always loves platformers and rpgs, but then i learned to love fighting games. and recently i got really into shooters. THPS and SSX are really the only types of sports games I'll play, and mariokart and f zero are the only racers i've ever really tried.

I used to have a hard on for RPGs, but at some point after playing through Disgaea, I just stopped caring. There's only a select few I'd be willing to play through nowadays (seen some trailers for White Knight, and it looks interesting), but generally, I try to avoid getting into them.

Anyways, I enjoy a few genres such as action/adventure, fighting, platforming, shooting...but I tend to get drawn in by games that demand a lot from one's reflexes, or a game where you can really prove how good you are. I'm competitive when it comes to multiplayer games, and I always end up being "that guy" who has to go easy on everyone so I don't seem like a total d-bag and win every match.

I'm cool with most genres, the only one's I really don't like are FPS's I don't know why but I've never enjoyed them. My favourite is probably adventure, though not by much

my favorite genres would be action/adventure, and platormers. RTS along the lines of Vandal Hearts and Shining Force.

I've never really played any RTS games, so i can't say that i like them. I also have a soft spot for rhythm games like Guitar Hero and DDR.
