    RPGs. hands down. Especially ones with lots and lots of character attributes.
    I'm a programmer at heart and the more stuff I get to fiddle with in games the happier I am.

    rpg or fps is the way to go for me,
    fps are fun and you can just relax and play, kill lots of stuff.
    rpgs are good because you have to work for everything, and its entertaining to play. plus takes alot of teamworks cuz im always the healer so im indept into it.

    I think we will see the top 2 contenders being fps and rpg, with rts next. I could be wrong.

    Hack & slash is more of a sub-genre game style. No?

    Third Person Shooter (or Action) ;)


    I chose First Person Shooter, Role Playing Game, Racing, Simulation,Third Person Shooter (or Action)

    Not a very big fan of Simulation games. I just like NFS Shift and Live for Speed. :)

    3rd person action? Not sure I never played it.

    MMO is not a genre. Anything can be MMO.

    Do turn based tactical games such as fallout:tactics (and possibly even fallout 1 & 2 assuming they don't fall under the TBS genre) count as turn based strategy?

    Similarily, what about sports games that aren't racing or simulation such as Blood Bowl.. which also happens to be a Turn-based Strategy/Tactical/Sports game...

    I'm just nit-picking .. :)

    The first video game I played on a PC was Delta Force 2, and since then, the FPS genre has been my favorite. Racing games take a close second—all the NFS games as well as some others like GRID. When I want to just kick back and take a break from work, nothing beats a good police pursuit in NFSMW.

    There is only one game outside of the FPS (borderline) and racing genres that has thoroughly won me over: Fallout 3. And a hell of a game it is.

    I'm pretty diverse. I had to resist the urge to check everything but racing, and settled on RPG and turnbased strategy. Civ 5 is going to rock my world. :D
