Are there certain RPGs that you will just not play even though you like RPGs?

I'm not really a fan of hack-and-slash or action RPGs like Dragon Age with over-the-top blood, guts, and gore. It just doesn't make for an appealing game to me. I also don't play MMORPGs anymore because I like my games to actually end at some point.

Are there any RPGs that, despite being in the RPG genre, you guys just don't care to play at all?

Hack and slash
loli JRPG
Kids save the world
Using emotion or feeling
Guardians/summons/mythical beasts/robots
Collectathons
Help X with their emotional problems
standing in lines
stupid villians with stupid motives
fighting god or equivalent
Generic deaths
crappy Jpop music
hallways
boring environments with no character or story
cliched stories
boring brain dead buff, heal, attack gameplay
Lack of any challenge
Auto level
no back tracking
no actual roleplaying
playing as people you absolutely think are idiots and hate.
Generic enemies with the same weakness in different color schemes

Neptunia. The one game ive seen that really does have elements that fit the loli term.

Now playing : Mass Effect, Bulletstorm

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. The character designs and plot (from what I've seen on Wiki and the like) don't interest me.

Generally, I'm all over anything from Final Fantasy and the Atelier series to Dragon Age and the Souls titles.

a better question would be what games does he play because a lot of the characteristics he said are not exclusive to RPGs

Don't like card battle games (Kingdom Hearts CoM)- also see FF8 which basically made its card minigame necessary as the means to get some of the best equips. Thankfully FF9 more or less trivialized its card game as something optional.

Also, see Pokemon card game, Magic: the gathering, anything like that.
