I'm sure that we all know what a genre is. And I'm sure that we all have favorites. So in short what is your favorite genera of video games?

For me that would be Role-Playing Games. Those are my favorites because of the excellent stories, leveling systems, and, in many western rpgs, the open worlds. While most JRPGs lack an open work they make up with their Turn-Based combat and tightly orchestrated stories.

Discuss!

RPG or Puzzles for sure. I love the storyline and battle systems of RPG games especially JRPGs but then I also like playing games like Tetris a lot. Like a lot a lot.

It's really hard just to pick a top 3 right now, lol. Survival/Psychological Horror games are my top favorites, for sure. After that.. up until recently I'd probably go on to list FPS and RPG. But Boyfriend has decided I don't like enough different genres so he got me into strategy games (turn-based, RTS, and tower defense), and now I'm inclined to say that any of those are getting pretty high up on my list, too!

Pretty much this. When I want to train my brain, I pick up some puzzle game otherwise I'll just play my beloved JRPGs.

RPGs! Mainly for stories, battle systems, characters, and the overall environment that they're set in. Majority of the RPGs I play are set in fantasy worlds, and they've all made me envious ;; Might just be a result of the development in the graphics department year-after-year, but nonetheless, they're great games to play c: Wouldn't give them up for anything.

I like action/adventure and RPG more than anything. The enriching gameplay environment of a roleplaying game can't be beaten, though I won't shy away from the occasional horror game. They keep me on my toes and my heart beating fast and it's just a really awesome experience, being totally afraid of what's coming up next even though I want to anticipate whatever it is but inevitably can't.

I am a RTS guy in heart, mind and soul... I have been since I was 2 and that will never change. I do like racing games, FPS'es and RPG's from time to time, but RTS stays that one genre that never seems to bore me

I'm mostly into RPGs, but I can dig a platformer every now and then, specifically a fantasy-themed one. Adventures are something I think I'd like if I got myself into one, like a Zelda game or Skyrim, but honestly I've never picked one up and tried it. Pokemon takes up most of my gaming time, so I'm looking to bring in some variety, haha. n__n;

My favorite genre of games is either Racing games, like Gran Turismo, Crash Team Racing for example, or Puzzle games, like Puzzle Bobble, Adventures of Lolo, etc.

While I really liked RPGs a lot in the past, the newer ones don't really appeal to me anymore. Since a couple of month I tend to play more Platformers, but probably my favourite is a combination of both genres (kinda like the Castlevania games for the NDS).

Platforming is my favorite genre, i grew up with mostly Megaman and Sonic games. I hate water levels with passion, same for when you have no idea where to go, for example mazes.

RTS is my second genre, i played a bit of Warcraft Orcs and Humans, C&C Tiberium Dawn and Dune when i was a kid, but my lack of strategy (or rather, buy the strongest units and just send them at enemy bases) usually prevented me from advancing at some point or another. I mostly only started up picking RTS up again with multiplayer games.

RPG's all the way. Adventure and RTS come next in a closed tie. I like one more than the other one time and the other later on.

I like games from most genre though. But RPG's are the absolute best.

I'm personally a pretty big fan of first-person shooter games; gotten into them when I was about fifteen or so, and haven't stopped following ever since. To me, they're very entertaining. My favorite series of them all would have to be Call of Duty, without a doubt; I've tried plenty of others before, ranging from Battlefield all the way to Halo, but in my opinion, nothing could ever live up to this one. They might release some games that leaves bad taste in the mouth every once in a while, but that's not such a bad thing; things like this are bound to happen. Aside from that, I also like RPG.

Action and/or RPG are 2 genres that I prefer. RPG because I like customisation and choices, then actually trying out different playstyles in combat that suit me. Meanwhile, action games give no frills - play it as it is, and less preparation to play, aka, no levelling up.

I do appreciate good storyline/plot/characters, but unusually though, I tend to find Action games better at this than RPGs themselves.

Um, what Rpgs have you been playing? If you want a nice story you want to play a western RPG or a Japanese RPG. Action RPGs sometimes don't have very good stories and instead focus on gameplay.

I guess I was not clear. I mean, yes, Action RPGs don't have good stories, I can agree with you on that. What I mean to say is that, compared to RPGs, I usually find that Action games (not ARPG) have better storylines.

Although, that isn't really such a big deal to me because I usually look at gameplay first before storylines, but otherwise, I enjoy games from the genres of RPG (including ARPG) and Action.

Shooters. I can't really be specific with it being FPS or something else, but I like all kinds of shooters. From the aforementioned FPS, all the way to shoot em' up danmaku shooters, I've grown quite the liking to them all.

Considering there's 2nd Miku coming to US/EU and Love Live School Festival was also released I wouldn't say it's that bad now
