What is your favorite genre of games?

  • RPG's are definitely my favorite. When I was younger, it was primarily JRPG's, but when I got a bit older, I started liking style of WRPG's a lot more.

  • I would say I pretty much like everything and all the genres feature games that I have played often. My least favorite will have to be puzzle games even with that i'll pretty much play anything.

  • It really should be JRPG's since 90% of what I play is JRPG's, but it's really 3D Platformers. I'm really excited about what may be the new Renaissance of the genre with A Hat In Time and Yooka Laylee.

  • Probably JRPGs.

  • There are many specific franchises I like within various genres, like Need For Speed, Project Gotham Racing, and Burnout in arcade racer, The Elder Scrolls in western RPG, Zelda in action-adventure, and so on. But as for consistently liking an entire genre, only one meets that criteria for me:

    Arena shooters.

    Doom, Quake, Unreal, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark.

  • I like games with a heavy focus on exploration. My favorite thing to do in games is just wander around to see what I can find. If the level design is non-linear or at least fairly open, the map is detailed and varied, and there are a lot of cool things to discover, then I am 100% sold.

  • Stealth is my favorite genre. Started all the way back in MGS1, my first real game that I beat. MGS is my favorite series, also love Splinter Cell (even if there are some stinkers), and playing Deus Ex: HR as a stealth game feels like the right way to do it. Payday 2 has awesome stealth, and is even coop so I can rage at my non-stealthy friends. Love me some Hitman as well. There's just something satisfying about a clean kill or infiltrating a base undetected.

  • Video games. ;D

  • I generally prefer the narrative driven style of games as well, like Life Is Strange, but besides that, typically action or platformers. Uncharted and the new Tomb Raider series are some of my favorites.

  • My favorite genre is RPG with turn based combat like Bravely Default or Wasteland 2.

  • The Adventure genre is my favourite, specifically the Point & Clicky kind :3

  • Horror, platformers and adventure games with strong narrative threads running through.

  • I prefer strategy games, or more specifically turn based. i like games that require you to think carefully about your next action, but slow and patient games. Also keen on rpg. Which is why divinity original sin is an awesome game. Xcom 1 and 2. Final fantasy. Lost odyssey. I can sink hours into those games while button mashing fighting games can bore me after a while.

  • Strategy RPGs and adventure RPGs

  • Open worlds games was and still my favorite genre, games like SOTC and Skyrim that you can put 10 hours in without getting bored, and less towers = more fun.

  • I'm torn between games like The Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect, The Last of Us, and Metal Gear Solid 3. They all have a lot of elements that I enjoy but none of them are easy to define as one genre. Story is definitely really important to me though.

  • I used to be really into western, open-world RPGs, and I still am to a degree, but nowadays I feel like the genre is becoming oversimplified and most big AAA RPGs resemble action games with stats tacked onto them. I know I'm in the minority, but I was really disappointed by Fallout 4 and I wanted so badly to love that game. I beat the main quest and kept coming back until I finally admitted to myself that I wasn't having fun.
    Lately I've been playing more strategic, turn-based RPGs like Divinity: Original Sin. I've also been delving into JRPGs more and have really enjoyed SMT IV and Bravely Default.

  • To be very specific, I like metroidvania-style games. I'll give every one a chance.

  • In general I just like the best games of every genre, but I do definitely have a soft spot for twin-stick shooters, going all the way back to Robotron. If I can run in one direction while shooting in another and take on giant swarms of enemies, I'm pretty happy.

  • I'm kind of in a rogue-lite mood those last years... that and Grand Strategy.
