Favorite game genres?

What's everybody's preference for games, doesn't have to be sw though.

I love

First Person Shooters
RPGs (some of them, not the ones based soley on magic/wizardry)
Action/3rd peson

I have an xbox and mech assault and turok are the most-played games, followed by Starfighter, which is a very cool star wars game. I'm waiting for Fable/Project Ego, B.C., and Knights of the old republic to come out for Xbox this year. =]

I play FFVII on my Playstation One. That game is awesome, and is also the first rpg i've really gotten into, haven't beaten it yet, only had it for less than a year!


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

RPGs mostly

After that i like an RTS, but only a good (read: C&C) one

Of course, i'll play anything thats star wars, no matter what genre it is.


Peace is but a shadow of death,
Desperate to forget its painful past.
And though we hope for promising years,
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.

Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone.

My favorite genre is FPS (I'm playing Metroid Prime right now) but I really want to get into RPGs. I'm going to get the new Zelda and I'll get KOTOR when it comes to PC.

Although it's not really a genre, I like all kinds of multiplayer games. If I can beat my friends in any type of competition, it's all good for me. It could be RTS, FPS, or sports, I don't care!

FPS's and RPG's. For some reason, I find RTS's extremely boring...

FPS's for comps and fighting or sports for my Xbox




Life isn't like playing poker. It's like playing a game where you don't know the rules in a dark room using blank cards with a dealer who Always Smiles.

First Person Shooters for me. What can I say, I like instant gratification, and nothing's more gratifying than blowing your enemies away with extreme prejudice!

what games do you play in those genres, i mean, what is your favorite game series in each of your favorite genre?

mine are:

FPS: Turok and Unreal Tournament
RPGs: Final Fantasy
Action/3rd person: Mech Assault/Dark Forces


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I can't really say I have a favorite, it's all what strikes as fun at the time. My usual genres are flight sim, racing, strategy and RPG. Never really one for the FPS type games.
