Shooters are where it's at for me, but I'll also pick up & play anything that'll let me kill anything, human or otherwise.

I play many 'bro' games, like Fifa and Call of Duty, so I guess I'm better at them than any other genre.

RPGs are what I grew up playing, so that's my specialty genre. I'm also pretty good at platform games, which came about with years of playing Mario and Mega Man.

Strategy games, easily. I'm pretty good at RPG games too, although I can't stand grinding.

I tend to excel in FPS, RPG and Sports games. I guess the main reason being is that I have been playing these genres primarily ever since I started gaming and haven't lost interest in any of them. Obviously, for different games it requires getting used to, but (especially with FPS') with familiarity in the genre I get to grips with games fairly quickly.

I'm good at FPS and RPG.

But I grew up with Pokemon, and at 12 I started playing FPS non-stop.

Majority of the games I play are RPGS (no MMOs!) and I don't know exactly how to tell if I'm good at them or not. I've finished a lot and left a lot of them unfinished; depends on the game itself, really.

I enjoy fighting games, but I'm absolutely dreadful at them. Can never get the grip on any of the technical fighting games series out there. I'm good at the SSB games, but many people don't consider it a "real" fighting anyways.

I'm good at RPGs, and that's really it. I'm okay at platformers and some adventure games, but I'm no good at FPS games. Which, I really wish I was, cause there are some good games in the genre I'd love to try, but I can't coordinate myself with the controls to save my life haha. :( So I'll just stick to RPGs...that's what I'm best at.

I used to play primarily first and third person shooters, though now play fantasy RPGs and shooter RPGs exclusively. Though I can be good at pretty much any game I pick up. Anything from Pokemon to Mario to Rainbow6 to Darksouls lol

JRPGs and puzzle games.
Overall, I'm good at games where you need to use brain rather than "button skills" :D
I did grow up with FIFA and NHL games so I guess those as well.

I find myself to be quite proficient at RPG, FPS, strategy and puzzle games. I'm absolutely hopeless at sport-related games (I've given FIFA a spin before and I loathed it), and can also play adventure games to some extent. I find myself to be pretty well-rounded, aside from that gaping hole...

Shooters, Platformers and racing, usually. I'm always playing either Battlefield 3, Sonic Generations or Need for Speed: Most Wanted these days - I used to have GTA IV, but lost it..I'm also a fan of games that require a lot of exploration, which Generations has a little bit of, in the forms of alternate routes.

I am probably best at "J"RPG's, whether it's turn based or real time. On any of my save files from any of my FF games, I can destroy the final boss in a matter of a few turns. In FF7, I destroy Emerald & Ruby Weapon like they are regular bosses. In FFX, my characters' sphere grids are maxed out. I go hard!

I am also best at action games, such as God of War, Ninja Gaiden, DmC, etc. I made Ninja Gaiden Black my slave and put that boy Ryu to work!

I am also decent at shooters when playing on PC, but my laptop is all I have left and I don't really game on it.

I am absolutely horrible at brawlers, except for PSABR, and I am not that fond of WRPG's.

I'm probably best at JRPGs as I find number calculation and messing around with stats quite fun and rewarding. I'm also quite good at puzzle and rhythm games as well, in fact most games which are more focused on logic rather than action I like to play more. That's not to say I don't like most action games, just that I fell more interested in other games.

I can't stand anything in first-person view, as I always found it hard to control
