My favourite genre has to be Third Person Shooters like Gears of War. To be honest, I prefer most games in Third Person to First Person. When I played a little of Fallout 3, I played it in Third Person mostly. I enjoy being able to see your charcater and not just the weapon they are holding.

Tomb Raider isn't a 3rd person shooter. It's an adventure/platformer/puzzle franchise.

I love shooters those are a classic, but I love fantasy type of games and some roleplaying games but I am pretty specific on those. I kind of want to play skyrim over my spring break since I haven't played it in a while.

I absolutely love FPS games, seeing as how I grew up with Doom and not only fell in love with that series but the genre as well. Nearly a third of my games are FPS games.

I also enjoy RPGs, especially ones with Diablo-style looting, but I also enjoy the likes of Skyrim and Fable.

RPGs (Mainly western style but I still enjoy all kinds)
Fighting (Both 3D and 2D but ultimately 2D is preferred)
Sandbox (GTAs, Saints rows, Red Dead etc..)

I probably play more shooters though as they tend to be easy to just pick and play. Its no where near my favorite genre though.

In general I see a lot of confusion surrounding genres. I see people reference Red Dead and GTA as RPGs instead of sandbox quite often. lol

Here Gackt read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_p...hooter#History and you will see that a lot of people consider Tomb Raider to be a third person shooter. Some even consider it the game that popularized the genre.

In the new Tomb Raider game there is a lot more gun fighting in it than puzzles.
