Of all the genres, real-time strategy is the only one that doesn't have a game I like. I much prefer turn-based strategy where I can take my time with decisions.
It's also pretty funny you listed 'indie games' as a genre. If that were true, 70% of the games I would play would be from 1 genre. --- Baseless prediction as of 01/04/13 : the next Xbox will be called the Xbox On.
I USED to be pretty open minded when it came to games. Now I find myself more picky about what I like.
My current tastes are: Adventure (of the pointy/clicky variety), Action RPGs, some Traditional RPGs, Visual Novels, Platformers, and sometimes Puzzles. --- My body is always Reggie. Currently playing: P3P, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Psychonauts
I play virtually everything. There are only 3 genres I tend not to play much, FPS, 3D Action (this includes "Sandbox", "Third Person Shooter", and "Survival Horror", among other things), and Simulation-style Sports games. Even then, there are some exceptions for all of these.
This means I will play stuff that some hardcore gamers tend not to like, like Arcade-Style sports, Fishing, Music, Puzzle, etc. --- http://terosclassicgaming.blogspot.com/ - Watch me beat "NES Die Hard" http://www.backloggery.com/tero - My backloggery
Everything pretty much. The only type I don't play as extensively as I used to is racing games. Rubberband AI just pisses me off. --- PSN: MasamuneMonkey "I'm the warrior of love and rage, Black Frost!"
Just about everything. shooters (all kinds) rpgs, platformers, racing, simulation (mostly animal crossing) adventure, stealth, etc. The only genre that I have no interest in is RTS. I prefer TBS. --- Only stupid people make generalizations. No exceptions. FC: 0516-7339-8901
Fighting(preferably 2D) RPGs(action and turn based) Srpgs Arcade racers Puzzle Shmups Arcade Sports(Hot Shots Golf, Pangya) Music/Rhythm 2D platformers whatever genre Ace Attorney is considered Action/Adventure
Games I tend not to play:
Sports Sims. J loved NBA Live, NBA 2K series and NFL 2k series when I was younger, buy I just don't enjoy them anymore.
FPS. I'll play a campaign on a FPS every now and then, but I was never really exposed to the genre growing up, so I never really got into them. The last FPS I played was probably Crysis 2(360), and the last one I really enjoyed was probably The Darkness.
Sandbox. I think it's my attention span. If a game gives me too much freedom, I tend to lose sight of objectives and tend to just screw around. I honestly have never beaten a Grand Theft Auto game.
RTS. Not my cup of tea --- "If the PS3 is Casablanca and the 360 is The Godfather, the wii would be Pluto Nash." - StilI_Kirbyfan9
