I dislike first-person shooters. Even Bioshock Infinite is difficult for me to get into. The closest I've come to enjoying a FPS since Half-Life 2 is Farcry 3, and even then I found the gameplay itself to be relatively bland.

I also dislike sports games, for two reasons: I've never been interested in sports in real life, so they are hard for me to relate to; and, I don't really enjoy games that are focused on one player versus one player competition.

I hate MOBA's and FPS.

I still enjoy JRPG's though not many quality ones lately.

I don't hate them but MMORPG's bore the hell outta me. I've tried several and can never last more then an hour or two. Racing is the same with the exception of the Mario Karts and Didly Kong Racings.

MOBA, (DOtA and LoL style) god those are bad.
And I dislike MMORPG's but only because they refuse to put actual content in their games, and instead just pad it with kill x and collect y of z quests and huge amounts of grinding for crafting. And then throw micro transactions on top of that.
I also dislike shooters and platforming games, or any games that require precise timing because I am really awful at those.
I am indifferent to Action games. I couldn't even get passed the first level in the demo for sleeping dogs before I gave up. Tomb Raider 2013 had me failing nearly every QTE because I am just not fast enough, and I died a lot in the shooting sections because I am not fast enough. The only reason I got through the QTE's is I would memorize them and their timings. That scene where she gets strangled in the camp, took me a good 20 tries because I would just get one QTE at a time, then fail the next one, then memorize it and try again, over and over until I got through it.

Love: RPGs especially JRPGs. I check them all out even if they are crappy.
Also love strategy games.

You know I forgot about sports games... but that's probably because when it comes to PC, publishers forget about sports games too (except for Football/Soccer, racing... and I guess they did release NBA 2k12)

I'm not totally against sports games, but I have no interest in real life sports, so the "thrill" of playing as my favorite team/players is lost on me. I usually just pick a random team and figure out who sucks and who's good the hard way.

Looking at the list of steam games with "sports" as a genre is kinda amusing though... they consider Poker Night at the Inventory to be sports?!

Not so much hate as a general lack of interest.


There's more but those are the ones off the top of my head.
