I hate typical RTS, i.e. Command and Conquer, for the most part though.
So do I. I really don't like gathering reasources and working on building and a base at the same time. I prefer to focus on a long term plan over a map or just my unit tactics in a current battle. I do like the ones like Dawn of War 2 or Copmany of Heroes where you can focus more on the actual battle.
This may seem like an odd answer, but I like games within any genre that have rhythm to the gameplay. Whether it be a shootemup, fighter, or a game like Mario64--games where player control can be improved and developed over time, where there is a clear difference between a novice and experienced player.Heirreni read this and said 'lolwut', though for a few seconds, then realized i'm the same exact way. i want people to know that i'm a mofo the moment they see me.
I seem to immediately think open world.
freakin' loved Fallout 3, Fallout : New Vegas, the Assassin's Creed games, inFamous games, and Batman : Arkham games, Gravity Rush, Grand Theft Auto series. just.... I have a blast in those game worlds.
behind that i guss, FPS's though unless modern military shooters at least TRY to tell a story, whether it be thought provoking as Spec Ops : The Line, or as entertaining as Black Ops 2 i'm pretty much out. and that's the crazy thing. i think you CAN do compelling stories in modern day settings, that can be either provoking or really well told entertaining. except now it's saturated with games really not telling you much about why your doing what your doing.
but then you go into multiplayer, and i freakin' love Battlefield 3's multiplayer component. graphically it looks amazing in both single and multi, but i never went back to the single.
after that it's action/adventures games like Enslaved, Heavenly Sword, God of War, etc.
then the RTS/Strategy games like the Westwood Command and Conquer games, Company of Heroes, Age of Empire, Civilization, XCOM Enemy Unknown, etc.
