RTS and MOBAs. Too much going on at once in RTS games and don't care for the ultra competitive and unfriendly environments of MOBAs. MOBAs also require too big of a time investment to get anywhere near decent and I'd rather hop from game to game. --- Wii-Keeping doors open and papers on my desk since '06. GT/PSN- Killbomb
Masochist games - I Wanna be the Guy, Super Meat Boy, etc... I love challenges but I have better things to do than die over and over a ridiculous number of times just to master an unforgiving platformer.
Agreed. Mostly. I did enjoy N and it's 360 version; mostly the latter though. However, even then I stopped enjoying it when I reached the much harder levels. I would call them "unforgiving" also. I LOVE them when they have a level of difficulty that's very high but still reachable through practice. But at a certain point the levels just become ridiculous.

MMOs - Basically after playing Runescape for 3000 hours in its prime, nothing out there comes remotely close to that. I cannot stand the end game content that is poorly implemented grinding. Also the fact that many of these games revolve around guilds and being on a specific times make them feel a lot like work and not fun (something that I never experienced in my Runescape days).
MOBAs - Very much the same thing. MOBAs are like playing a game with no overlying progression system. It is very repetitive, and after so long you question if you're having fun. The huge draw for these games is to play with friends - very much like MMOs.
Single Player Movies - Basically games that prize themselves on their story telling while having very shallow gameplay. My best example would be Portal 2, for having a great and memorable story, but horrible gameplay (because it's a puzzle game, which I found annoying).
Everything else I can deal with and / or like.
I'm playing Chrono Trigger right now for the first time and it's boring me to death. I think I don't like JRPGs, but I really want to.
If you played it 10-15 years ago you'd appreciate it more. It was the best game of its time, and still holds up against modern JRPGs.
You should probably list Puzzle Platformers too, if you didn't like Portal 2 simply because it is one. --- Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch
I'm terrible at FPS. My friends made me get BioShock, didn't like it at all (art design was fantastic, couldn't PLAY the actual game). However, even though I've left BioShock behind, Borderlands has made me addicted to playing co-op with my friend. It's amazing. --- PSN: DangerBrandon Last Platinum: Assassin's Creed: Revelations; Currently Playing: Final Fantasy XIII-2
Well it's odd because I really like Platformers (Megaman, having played 90% of them). I think it was just Portal 2 which was pretty mediocre. --- http://i.imgur.com/sUtdyzN.png - Popularity =/= Quality. http://puu.sh/4AoGC.png - Opinions =/= Truth.
