1) RPGs: Final Fantasy, Xenogears and Chrono Trigger come to mind. 2) Visual Novels: I f***ing love Ace Attorney, Layton and Zero Escape 3) Action-Adventure Games 4) Fighting games: UMvC3, Brawl and Dissidia (probably P4:A in the near future) are the only Fighting games I'm actually crazy about. 5) Party games: Especially Mario Party 6) FPS: Not much of a fan. The only one I love is Metroid Prime series, and I don't think that one counts. 7) Sports: I don't like them much and only play them when my friends insist on playing FIFA.
The lack of Visual Novels in this topic saddens me :(

I don't play them as much as I used to and I've moved on to western style rpgs such as Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls and other similar games, but I used to be a huge Final Fantasy fan and a fan of pretty much anything Squaresoft...ahem "Square-Enix" (to be fair I loved games from both companies before the merger anyway so it actually is the more appropriate term anyway).
It's kind of sad, most of you are way too young to have enjoyed Japanese rpgs in their heyday, but the quality of games have increased greatly, but they really lose that...special something that really made them loved and memorable.
I'm in that boat with you,Shadow.
During the golden years of gaming(Them 16 bit days...:*) ) Squaresoft was a force to be reckoned with.Even the lesser titles like Final Fantasy:Mystic Quest had quite the following(Listening to this just warms my heart...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vI6cxWQ_OY)
I often think that what made them special was when them(the developers) were trying to push the hardware to it's limits.Games like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6(3 in the US) are the games dudes my age dreamed of so many years ago.Super Mario RPG was also something special( A friend of mine hooked to that thing like crazy),but I never could appreciate it as whole.
Maybe it's just me growing up....But those days were the best.
