View Full Version : Favorite Genre?

07-26-2007, 01:44 AM
So what's everyone's favorite genre of games?

Mine is probably FPS/RPG's.

I like FPS's because for some reason I'm pretty good at them. I guess I have good reaction time and whatnot.

I don't know why RPG's are fun...I just really enjoy playing them. Probably because of the story and the 40+ hours of gameplay...I like longer games...

07-26-2007, 02:49 AM
My favorite gen. would have to be RPG but theres not many out for the 360... so sad :( FPS games are ok too :)

07-26-2007, 03:16 AM

i like RPG and shooters and every now and then a good racing game

07-26-2007, 03:45 AM
My favorites would probably be action/adventure and Sports games. I do like FPS games sometimes, but the other two genres are usually safe bets for me.

07-26-2007, 04:02 AM
FPS or Action/Adventure. (ie. God of war, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May cry) & Survival Horror.

07-26-2007, 04:11 AM

basically any game the has a lot of replay value, can play online alot and is just kick ass [oblivion, r6:vegas, halo2, fable]

07-26-2007, 04:16 AM
Pretty much the same as Jarhead.

I really dig survival horror and FPS.

07-26-2007, 04:41 AM
Any game that involves shooting (Halo, Gears of War, Dead Rising). Though I do love the pure action of Ninja Gaiden and God of War.

07-26-2007, 04:47 AM
My 3 favorite genres...

1. Racing
2. Shooters
3. Action Adventure

07-26-2007, 04:58 AM
i enjoy fps and rpg. oblivion is good and i can't wait for fallout3, fallout is like half oblivion and half bioshock or gears it seems like

07-26-2007, 05:16 AM
I like FPS and racing

07-26-2007, 05:40 AM

I was planning on saying FPS's, but I realized that the genre I spend most time with is clearly RPGs. Too bad X0 doesn't have too many of them yet. (gogo trusty ol' ps2)

07-26-2007, 06:20 AM
My favorite would probably be sports

07-26-2007, 08:06 AM
I would pick FPS if I don't have too much time on my hands, or when my friends and I want some serious action. If we have plenty of time (ie, vacation or weekend, where we can spend several hours poring over our laptop screens), I'd probably boot up an RTS game. Too bad not all of us can run Supreme Commander.

Real Time Strategy. I love the challenge of these games, makes a player think of good strategies in order to defeat an opponent.

RPG. Love making moral decisions, and replay value is awesome.

07-26-2007, 12:15 PM
I'd have to say I like pretty much all types of games. I'm not an online player, so whatever is too much multiplayer, I don't touch. My less favorite games are RTS and Sports, although I'll play one once in a while.

FPS and Survival Horror.

Action/RPG (God of War, Oblivion, Everquest, Final Fantasy, GTA)
FPS (GoW, Counter Strike, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty)

07-26-2007, 04:37 PM
FPS/RPG/Action Adventure/Arcadish Racers
Halo 2/Enchanted Arms/Ninja Gaiden/PGR3

Just examples of the types of games I like to play.

07-26-2007, 05:09 PM
RPGs without a doubt :)
Mainly of the turn based variety like the Final Fantasys but do go through stages of loving MMORPGs too.

FPS definetely...i dont really like RPG's...i find it boring...

07-26-2007, 05:30 PM
I like the rpg style and some shooters ( shooters as in games like G.r.a.w and Rainbow six )

07-26-2007, 06:24 PM
My favorite genres I would say are.. FPS or RPG's. Fun stuff.

07-26-2007, 06:30 PM
FPS, hands down.

07-26-2007, 06:35 PM
Action/adventure, rpg, and then fps

07-26-2007, 06:55 PM
Well it depends. If the rpg is like Oblivion, the upcoming two Worlds, Morrowind , even I guess crack down ( upgrading your abilities) Those would probably be my favorite.

But for a Genre as a whole, I like FPS because most of my games are Shooters and I am really good at them for some reason.

07-27-2007, 02:05 PM
Fps Ftw!!!

07-27-2007, 02:44 PM
Action RPGs. I make the distinction because I hate turn-based fighting. I hate it like I hate Rosie O'Donnell.

RPGs where I control the fighting though, are the best thing ever. Seriously, almost as good as sex. Better than sex if you're in prison. I've played Oblivion for easily more than 200 hours, I can't wait for Mass Effect, and if Bioware does KOTOR III, I may have to be put on life support to avoid a euphoria induced aneurysm. I love games with in-depth stories, that allow me to explore, upgrade, play as I see fit - everything that defines an RPG basically. Shooters are useful for playing with friends, but they're basically a manly version of tag.

All that being said, Bioshock has me very curious...

07-27-2007, 07:22 PM
Racing is definitely at the top of my list, and this past month has kept me very happy (Forza, Nascar, Dirt).
Other than that it kind of changes between FPS, RPG, and action/adventure. Put all 3 of those together... even better

Mine would have to be either FPS or Racing.

07-29-2007, 06:19 PM
Racing and Sport are my favourites! I'm a PES God!!!

07-29-2007, 06:20 PM
I wouldn't say I have any particular favorite, I just like good games, regardless of the genre.

I tend to lean more towards shooters and rpgs though.

07-30-2007, 08:12 AM
i like erveyone else would have to say FPS. I love a really good RPG like KOTOR and what is going to be Mass Effect.

07-30-2007, 12:10 PM
fps' without a doubt

08-10-2007, 02:21 AM
FPS, hands down as well.

Most Frantic
08-11-2007, 06:27 PM
I don't really have one anymore... when I was younger it was definitely RPGs, but now...
I guess if I HAD to choose one it would be adventure.

08-11-2007, 06:52 PM
The ones that I actually like I like them all the same...

FPS(Gears of War, Counterstrike, Halo)
MMORPG(World of Warcraft, Everquest, Warhammer Online)

08-11-2007, 07:31 PM
In order:

1-FPS: There's no genre more susceptible to trash talking and bragging rights that FPS games. Sniped a guy in Counterstrike all the way from the opposite side of a big map? Check. Stickied someone coming my way from the other base in Bloodgulch in the original Halo? Check. Jumped right inthe middle of a 5-way firefight and was the last man standing? Check. Come on, it's hard not to get impressed with such tactics.

2-RTS: If FPS games are all about tactics, RTS games are all about the big picture. The flaw in FPS games is that you have to be good with your hand-eye coordination, and if you pause to think of your next move, you may be as good as dead before you can do anything. In RTS games, it's a multiple hour tooth grinding climb to dominating the map. It's about allocating resources, outthinking and outplanning the enemy, and reacting to any changes that may occur. Let's face it, there's far more books about strategy than there is about firearms. I just hope they develop a Sun-Tzu AI so I can prove myself the ultimate strategist by defeating him.

3-RPG: From time to time, I crave a good story, even better if it's interactive. It's not, as one guy put it, "semi developed personalities traveling (in packs) in search for identity." It's more of a relaxing practice for when I want to unwind and stay away from the two genres above for a while. At least until I get my MP up high enough to pull off my special moves in my favorite games.

i like games where i can kill things and have sextual intercoarse with woman. like san andreas.

08-11-2007, 09:27 PM
shooters, for the fast pace action
RPG for story and strategy

08-11-2007, 10:00 PM
RPG is my all time favourite, but there is a serious lack of them. ATM its shooting games (shadowrun, cod3)

My absolut favorite would have to be RPG'S.I really like to play those longer games, and i also like the aspect of "leveling up".I think it give a game replay value.My second favorite would be FPS'.Well, i like to kill, shoot things.That's my guess why i like shooters.My third woud have to be Action/Adventure, games like Zelda are always a good challenge and a ton'o'fun!;)Oh and if i had a fourth it would be sports.They are just plain fun sometimes when you don't have to simm the game for hours on end to get achievements.(I'm looking at you, EA.)

08-12-2007, 02:18 AM
FPS is my favorite (Halo, GOW, Rainbow Six Vegas). RPG and Racing are a close second (PGR series, Oblivion, Burnout series, Need for Speed series).

I also enjoy the occasional NCAA, Madden, and NBA Live with my friends.

08-12-2007, 05:04 AM
RPG (I LOVED Kotor...and Mass Effect look pretty cool too, also liked Oblivion...but a bit repetive after few time and there are few things I didn't like) and FPS...mostly for Llive

08-12-2007, 09:49 PM
Easily RPG I have spent many days of my life playing rpgs and I don't regret any of them except may for Final Fantasy 9 and 10-2 as I never finished those games they bored the shit out of me.

03-03-2008, 07:57 PM
easilly fps 4 me. i feel so involved in the game wne playing them. especially on HD!!!!!

03-03-2008, 07:59 PM
FPS FTW...:uzi:

03-03-2008, 08:03 PM
i would have to say FPS/sports/action & puzzle and prob in that order RPGS are good and i will play them but they aren't a priority

03-04-2008, 12:36 AM
I like shooters. But playing only shooters has driven me off them. So I'm getting back into my first love.... RPG'S.

03-04-2008, 12:38 AM
easilly fps 4 me. i feel so involved in the game wne playing them. especially on HD!!!!!Don't bring up old threads dude. My favorite genre is FPS.

03-04-2008, 12:49 AM
Don't bring up old threads dude. My favorite genre is FPS.

Better than posting a pointless thread and getting flamed for not searching eh..?

Personally my favourites are RPG's and FPS's but I've been playing some action games recently and enjoying them quite a bit ^_^

03-04-2008, 12:58 AM
Shooters! I also like RPG

03-04-2008, 04:22 AM
I've always been a fan of action adventure games.

I don't know why RPG's are fun...I just really enjoy playing them. Probably because of the story and the 40+ hours of gameplay...I like longer games...

Ditto for me - FPS and modern RPGs. Can't stand old-fashioned RPGs like Blue Dragon and Eternal Sonata...I played a million of those on the SNES back in the day but Oblivion is amazing and I'm looking forward to Mass Effect.

03-04-2008, 09:31 AM
My favorite genre is rpg/fps, but rpg first. ;)

03-04-2008, 06:22 PM
RPG or Sandbox. I love RPG's just because of Oblivion and Ocarina of Time. =]

03-04-2008, 07:49 PM
I remember making one of there threads, stealing my idea! XD
Personally for me action games.
So unpredictabel, and i'll never get tired of the ragdoll effect.

03-04-2008, 07:58 PM
it does not matter what genre the game is for me. As long as it holds my attention and not just plain stupid. Some games don't even need to get any playtime.

03-04-2008, 08:23 PM
Shooters and RPGs


03-04-2008, 08:40 PM
deafintetely RPG and soot 'em' ups.

i like a good racing game every now and again!

03-05-2008, 02:41 AM
Its a toss up between FPS and RPG but a good Racing game is alway nice

03-06-2008, 12:25 AM
Definitely FPS/RPG... I absolutely love first person shooters, and a new one as well in sports that i like is EA Games' Skate... It's very unique gameplay style how they make you flcik the thumb stick to do tricks... so i guess i like sports as well =p

03-06-2008, 06:50 AM
RPGs without a doubt, or any game with a deep, good story. I value story a great deal, so any game that can hook me in with one is worth my while and I love.

03-07-2008, 02:53 PM
shooters all the way:uzi::uzi::uzi:

03-07-2008, 03:15 PM
^^ Same here love a good shooter, with alot of action :uzi:

Also love Sandbox game and certain RPGS

03-07-2008, 03:34 PM
i really enjoy playing on RPG's

but racing games and FPS are where i shine


03-07-2008, 03:43 PM
Sandbox games are my favorite but I am getting back into RPGs lately.

03-07-2008, 03:58 PM
FPS and Sandbox games are my favourite.
For FPS things like Rainbow six vegas made me love them, I was never off that game.
For Sandbow GTA is just the best game ever and I loved San Andreas.

03-08-2008, 02:03 PM
RPG and Sports

dre 8001
03-08-2008, 02:31 PM
if u look at the achievements i have u can see i play alot of sports games, making it the best genre ever!!!!! followed by rpg

03-08-2008, 03:08 PM
I don't think I really have a favorite genre, though it seems I play a lot of shooters.

I play a game regardless of the genre and make up my mind afterwards :)

03-09-2008, 10:13 AM
FPS then probably Action/Adventure. Just gotta love em.

03-09-2008, 11:04 AM
Mine is FPS and sports!

03-09-2008, 11:55 PM
Most shooter's and i do like the Horror genre.

03-10-2008, 12:08 PM
i like games where i can kill things and have sextual intercoarse with woman. like san andreas.

Haha you should probably try Mass Effect too. My favourite genre is RPG, i'm a sucker for a good story. 2nd favourite genre is Shooters, i'm not saying FPS cause Gears is my fave and we all know that's third person. Shooters always have the best Live matchmaking, set-up etc

03-10-2008, 12:11 PM
I wonna say Action adventure. With games like Zelda or Assassins Creed
But when i really think about all the games ive had
ive had more FPS's/shooters than any other genre

03-11-2008, 06:11 PM
I really enjoy playing the Sandbox genre, then FPS is a very close second.....
