What game genre do you like? I listed examples but they all fit in more than one category to be honest ha!

Not gonna use your poll thing cuz it's way too generalized for my tastes...that and some of your RPG examples are kinda iffy to me but whatever.

 

That said I like nearly every genre. The only one I actively dislike is fighting game. 2d/3d, dun care, don't really like any of them other than the original one must fall. 3rd person action brawlers like ninja gaiden or devil may cry are great though, I like those but not the traditional 1v1 duel thing (not that 1v1 is the problem, 2v2 like in that guilty gear ibuki or whatever it was called isn't to my liking either).

 

Sports is another genre you MIGHT say I don't like... I don't care for teamsports games, or tennis, or anything liek that. But I like racing sims, which are in fact a sports games, but I find that many people like racing sims without really liking other sports games and vice versa, it's really its own genre in terms of who its fanbase is.

 

Last is MMO. I like many mmo's, and I currently am dying for pso2 to be localized (never), or tree of savior to come out, and I love vindictus and elsword and warframe...But I'm pretty reluctant to try new mmo's normally because they are such timesinks. I don't really like trying out a new mmo because I'm scared if I like it my free time for other games will be gobbled all up!

I like FPSs (especially ones of the fast-paced old-school sort) and platformers. Or at least those two genres are the ones I play the most - basically any sort of game goes for me, be it a fighting game or an action/adventure or whatever. Not a big fan of RPGs and horror games, though.

Uncharted, The Last of Us, and Metal Gear Solid? RPGs? What?

 

But to answer your question, from the choices you have in the poll, RPGs and action games.

 

EDIT: Looks like you fixed it.

I love stealth games, games that reward patience and planning. Though I would have to say role-playing is my favorite genre.

RPG's but not so much like the kinds of the Elderscroll series. More like Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, or Dragon Age.

Mainly RPGs, because I like being able to customise characters. The best games for me are ones where I feel I can play as myself, make the choices I want, look the way that I want, because then I feel more attached to the game.

 

Not a massive fan of action shooters, I think the genre saturated itself in the late "noughties" with FPSs and it's gone overboard in the last few years with TPSs. There's been so many bad ones, the genre as a whole has suffered. It's starting to go the same way for these open world/free running games, I mean Assassin's Creed set a bar with it and now every free roam game seems to need free running for some reason.

 

The one genre that I can't get into is Fighting games (e.g. Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat). I've tried time and time again, when Street Fighter 4 came out I bought the game and a specialised Madcatz pad to play it on, I think I lasted about half an hour before I put it down and I never picked it up again.

I like everything except for games that involve a lot of driving, I often don't look at sandbox gameplay as a good thing either but it depends on the game.

 

My favorite games are usually strategy, SRPG, stealth, or more tactical third or first person shooters. I always liked beat em ups, light gun games, and vertical/horizontal shoot em ups as well. Enjoyed a lot of the visual novel games I've played as well.

Action, followed closely by strategy(one of the reasons I enjoy PS2 so much is that you can do both). Pretty much the only RPGs I've played are Skyrim and Pokemon, and I haven't touched an MMO since City of Heroes/Villains. I play some fighting games, but not all that competitively.

Rpg & Mmorpg, so much pleasure when after multiple hours on your character you see an evolution, turning you from Mr nobody to a living god.

MMOs aren't a genre of game, it just means it's a game that is only played online, and lets you play with a lot of other people at once, which most types of games could be made to allow for. Take Planetside 2, and World of Warcraft, both are MMOs, but are completely different types of games. If you wanted to include MMO in a poll like this, it'd make more sense to have the other options be things like single player, multiplayer, and online multiplayer, so everything in the list are comparable.

 

Also while people seem to love calling most any online game a MMO, as many don't allow you to actively play with more than say three other people at once in the main draw of the game, there is no massive to their multiplayer, so it's just an online multiplayer game, not a massively multiplayer online game.

Usually like action games, but I like really any game as long as it's good.

My favorite genre would have to be FPS because I grew up on Halo: CE and BF2 Modern Combat. RPG (Mainly Fallout and Elder Scrolls) and Strategy (Command&Conquer when it was good) are close seconds though.

I marked everything here, because I don't have a specific genre that I enjoy the most.  If I would make a list of games that I played over 6 month (If I played it that long, I consider it good) than the list would be quite big with many different genres.

My favorite would probably be action/adventure but is difficult for me to put one genre over the other. They are all basically on an even playing field for me.
