Best:

PC FPS, Stealth

perfect genres that i love to play and would never sick. PC FPS and stealth games i cant choose which is better but they both make best of experience. and combination like Deus Ex give me perfect gaming experience

Just play (part timer):

RTS and other genres likes action games, TPS.

I love RTS but i dont play them much, just part timer RTS gamer.

Hate:

Console FPS, JRPG, Platformer, Fighting:

Console FPS is imo by far one of the worst gaming genre ever. console FPS are not only console exclusive but are avaliable on PC too like COD, bioshock.

Fighting games are just waste of time imo. what the point of buying game 2 people head to head kick, punch etc

platformers: i used to like them when i was kid but not now anymore they are too colorful for my taste

and lol JRPG.

anyways whats yours???

I love practically every genre. My favourite genres are FPS and RTS

I don't like but I can stand turn based RPGs, especially when it has an interesting story or humor like Paper Mario or South Park

I can't stand MOBAs, MMORPGs and rythem games

I hate mobile games. They lack any sort of depth because of control limitations and I get bored after a few minutes every time.

Sci-fi /

sci fi is not a genre.

yes it is.

Games with a sci-fi element be they FPS or Action adventure, i would be interested in.

I dont like all FPS games and i dont like all TPS games......if they are Sci-fi themed, i am more likely to be interested than if they are about gangs or military for example.

Favorite:

Character Action Games - Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, The Wonderful 101, Anarchy Reigns, Ninja Gaiden Black, Alien Soldier.
Third Person Shooters - Resident Evil 4, Vanquish, Resident Evil 5, Binary Domain, Sin & Punishment.
Action Platformers - Dynamite Headdy, Mischief Makers, Sonic 3, Knuckles Chaotix, McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure, Pulseman, Mega Man X4, Super Mario 3D World, NiGHTS into Dreams.

Just Play:
JRPG's - Final Fantasy series, Xenosaga, Chrono Cross.
Horror - Siren: Blood Curse, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill 1-4.

Hate:

Third Person Cover Shooters with a heavy emphasis on "Cover" - Incredibly boring, tedious, and overdone.
First Person Shooters - For the most part an incredibly dull genre.
Action games that insist on having God of War style combat - It's clunky, mindless garbage.

#7 Posted by blangenakker (2212 posts) -

Favourite: FPS's and management sim/tycoon games.

Just Play: I'll play anything really, except for...

Hate: RTS's, I don't possess the ability to play them for more then one session. This also includes DOTA games as well, toxic community and reliance on billions of items for depth is annoying.

i agree TPS with cover system are bad. very bad. max payne and mafia series are only good pure TPS imo.

by FPS u mean PC or console one? i devide FPS into two groups. PC one and Console one. doesnot mean exclusive for example Metro is PC game avaliable on console and bioshock is console game avaliable on PC..

turn-based strategies and space sims (but don't play them very often nowadays)

Just play: sandbox games, cinematic action adventure, hack'n'slash (a game has to be really good, and not generic, typical of the genre)

Find them stagnant but play occasionally: racing games, sports games and fighting games

#25 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (15907 posts) -

PC: Flight sims, futuristic or scifi FPS, RTS, Turn-based Strategy, classic (aka pinball, billiards), modern or futuristic setting RPG

Console: Sports games, some action adventure games (Uncharted series), occasional platformer

Hate:

WW2 and modern warfare-setting FPS

Yet another RPG with medieval setting. I'm tired of swords and shields. I prefer lots of bang bang or bzzzt, whoosh! over clank, clank, clank.

Not interested but, I'll try regardless:

Fighting, JRPG, post-apocalyptic setting FPS

#26 Posted by SNIPER4321 (10142 posts) -

Favourites: FPS

FPS what micheal?

console one or PC ones??

#27 Posted by Heil68 (43373 posts) -

I play everything, because I am a true gamer. I most enjoy open world games.

#28 Posted by Telekill (4389 posts) -

I don't really hate any genre as there are exceptions. An example being that I don't really care for sports games but enjoyed Tecmo Super Bowl (NES), NBA Jam (Genesis) and many racing games. Here are my favorites though:

Favorites: Action Adventure, Story Driven, TPS, Survival, Co-op.

Least Enjoyed: Online Competitive, Militaristic FPS, Sports

Obviously games these days may not fit a single genre anymore. Games like The Last of Us can be considered to touch all my favorite genres in some fashion. Hence why I enjoy it so much.

#29 Edited by cooolio (449 posts) -

The only genre of games that I do not really play that much if at all are RTS and Adventure games that focus on narrative and that are more point and click, like the walking dead,. There is really is not a genre that I hate however. Nowadays we really have games that are combinations of different genres, which I really like. But if I were to name specific genres that I like, they would be stealth, RPG and action adventure. I will play a FPS if it does enough to stand out, which is usually by including elements from the genres that I already mentioned that I prefer.

#30 Edited by happyduds77 (1448 posts) -

Favorite: Over the shoulder TPS, action-adventure/horror, team based multiplayer, open world/RPG, FPS

Just play: Puzzles, survival horror, point and click, platformers

Hate: Any game with top down perspective and small levels, JRPG, simulators

Favourite

-Platformers: To me, this is pretty much as pure a conversation I can have between player and developer. The character is a direct representation of your inputs in direct response to what the developer has placed before you. It's a point A to B obstacle course of pure design.

-Fighters: This is just about as direct a competitive game can be. It's about directly facing another person's mind. A high speed chess match. It's just you and your character up against your opponent and his character. There is no track or level design, or hiding, or stealing kills, or back stabbing. It's your skill and intelligence verses theirs. The only other genre that's as purely competitive as fighters is RTS.

honourable mentions: Hack n Slash, Action adventure

Just play

RPGs: I used to be a huge RPG fan, but I grew out of that at a certain point. I'd trade stats for real time skills any day where it's more about my personal ability than my stats or build.

Hate

FPS/TPS: I just can't get in to this genre at all. I'm OK with sinlge player campaigns at times, but competitively it feels wrong to me. Just the idea that you can be shot in the back while fighting somebody else face to face seems wrong at a very basic level. Then there's the idea of the sniper. A weapon or class built around the idea that somebody can kill you and there's really no way of seeing it coming.
