Default Favorite Game Genre's

Hi Guys just wanted to bring some casual talk out

Whats your favorite Game Genre?

For me I used to love RPG's and Fighting games, I wasnt really a fan of FPS's on consoles but recently Ive been playing only BFBC2, the reason I like it is I no longer have time to fully immerse myself in a game that needs 30 or more hours of dedicated leveling. I want a game like 2k11 or BF that you can play 1-2 hours then rest sleep etc.


These are the usual games I play

FPS ( BFBCS/Black OPS/MW)
Sports games ( actually only NBA games like 2K)
Fighting games ( SF4 and MK)
SIM Games ( Ace Combat, the sims)
War strategy games+ RTS(Nectaris/ C&C series/ Field Commander/ Advance wars
RPG's ( The Final Fantasy Series although I havent played the latest on the PS3) Dragon Quest / Breath of fire

I also like side scroller/adventure games like Okami wish they did a new one and also wish new games had hack and slash type games like Golden Axe and Streets of Rage.

Mine changes every now and then. Right now I think I'd rather play hack n slash. Like you, at the moment, i'm not invested in spending 30 hours on a game. I just ordered God of War Origins collection to fulfill my hack n slash need...to bad I have to wait a couple of months for it. I too enjoy BFBC2 for the same reasons you gave....I just recently sold it though in anticipation of Battlefield 3.

Other times I'm in the mood for interdmediate length games in the mold of Resident Evil or Metal Gear.....about 15-20 hours.

Third person shooters
Hack and slash-only certain ones, it has to have some variety. LOTR: Return of the King is one of my favorite games, beaten it at least 4 times.
Sports, especially basketball.

Edit: Old school platformers. Ex: Sonic, Crash Bandicoot.

Games like

Gauntlet: Dark Legacy
Left 4 Dead 2
Halo Multi-player (MLG)
Dead Nation

Multi-player shooters that are dependent on teamwork, strategy, and skill. Sometimes they're overhead shooters, sometimes 3rd person. But I love those types of games.

action adventure maybe with rpg elements. stuff like zelda, darksiders, and god of war.

hack n slash with some puzzles mixed in, collecting items.. perfect recipe for me these days

also 2d platformers will always have a special place in my heart. although mario galaxy 1 and 2 have perfected 3d platforming.

I like action/adventure with some RPG elements mixed in, some puzzling. Or Third Person Shooters with similar side elements. Resident Evil, Uncharted, Dead Space, The GTAs, Red Dead.

I just don't dig FPSs for some reason. I like a good story, and I like having a world to explore, even if it's only a level at a time. I'm a searcher by nature I guess. I like to find stuff, figure stuff out, and the like.

I do sort of dig platformers too. Although it's been a while. I read that Limbo got released on PSN last night, and I'm looking forward to getting that.

turn-based rpg, though I haven't played one I've really enjoyed since the GBA re-issue of the FF with sage tellah and the twins. I forget which number that was. Most recent attempt was Last Remnant, and I'm still plodding through that. Story isn't bad, but the mechanics are redundant and strategy limited to a game that you'd expect to be 15 years old, not 3. Still, I prefer these to action RPG's.

I will give anything with RPG elements a go. Also play a lot of first person shooters and sandbox games. Really like hack and slash games too. Used to love Baldurs Gate Dark alliance on the ps2

Default Re: Favorite Game Genre's

The only 3 genres I really enjoy are RPG, Horror and Sports. Specifically Western RPG. Some of my favorite titles to give examples.

1. Mass Effect
2. Dragon Age
3. KOTOR games
4. Jade Empire
5. Fallout 3
6. Resident evil games
7. Alan Wake
8. NBA 2K games
9. Madden games


Unlike most gamers right now I'm not into FPS's or Sandbox like GTA or Red Dead Redemption. I'll play them but not much.
