    Check any that apply.

    Personally I never really got into the Simulation games as I've never really had a computer that could support the ones with the superior graphics, and never really found any interest in them.

    To those people that do play them, did you already have an interest in wanting to play it? Or did you play it once like at a friends house, and loved it as soon as you started playing it?

    I prefer to stick with the good old RTS/TBS, though RPG, Action/Adventure, and puzzle games always held my interest. Anyone remember ICube, or was it just IQ for Playstation 1? :D

    I am a Strategy lover guy, specially in love by StarCraft - Brood War, definately the best game ever made in this world. I also played WarCraft III, but it can't possibly appeal to me... Not only because my computer sucks, but also because it's unbalanced. However, if I ever get a good computer, I might start playing with the BF people :)

    I also like to play RPGs (untill I finish them off, I can't restart an RPG). So, Diablo 2 was an option. When I finished it, I just quit, and I bloody hell can't understand why people keep playing it time after time. I'm just into it for the story, only.

    I also enjoy FPS, specially when it is real, nothing like counter strike, but more like Day of Defeat or Call of Duty. Well, not exactly real, eh, but, meh, still better than CS. CS is one of the worse FPS out there, in my opinion.

    Also like some Action/Adventure games, only for the story, yet again. That's why games with a really bad story, like Tomb Raider, aren't very good :-/

    Finally, I do enjoy a good simulation game. My favorite simulation game has to be Grand Theft Auto (it is a simulation game, you emule a car thief :D), but games like Flight Simulator and of the type do not really appeal to me. Because the story sucks.

    As for those I don't like, well, let's see.

    Card/Casino is simply stupid, not funny at all. I'd rather play with real people.

    Fighting/Wrestling... You remember I said I like the storyline? Yeah, so you know why I hate this kind of games ;)

    Puzzle is boring.

    Racing is, meh, I just don't like it :-/...

    I play tons of games.

    Everyone has played action/adventure at some point. Xmen Legends is my main one here.

    Racing, RalliSportChallenge 2 was my obsession until I wrecked my truck, haven't played it since :(

    RPG, Diablo II baby. Final Fantasy 7 I've played through once or twice too.

    Shooters, Halo, Halo 2, Battlefront, Doom 3, classic Wolfenstien on my old 386, too. Awwww yea.

    Extreme Sports, Tony Hawk series, I skateboard, skateboard games.

    I play strategy too, but forgot to check it. :( SC, WC3, Final Conflict(a game I bought at the Dollar Tree and it rocks) and Command & Conquer.

    All RPGs have some element of that Andrew. :p

    From having to guess the best dialog to get you through a tough spot and avoid a battle you can't win, to finding all the best items.

    MMORPGs are multiplayer RPGs, that's all. ;)

    I generally enjoy most types of games, give me a good game of any type and normally I will enjoy it :-D

    But the games I am good at are racing simulation and shooters.

    I am a huge fan of any good rpg (currently playing Tales of Symphonia, good stuff), shooter (too many to name fave is probably the Metal Slug Series, or the Raiden series), or action/ adventure (Maximo, GTA, Mario, Sonic1,2 and CD). I like strategy/RPGs as well (Disgaea, FFTactics). Of course, the old staple Starcraft (although i am sure that online I would get MURDERED by the fanatics), as well as weird games like Katamari Damacy. Puzzle games are good too (Tetris, Puzzle Bobble, Puzzle Fighter). Actually I like a little bit of everything. No gambling sims though, or any sim for that matter. I guess I would be classified as a console gaming junkie (I don't really play that many PC games, Baldurs Gate and Starcraft and thats about it) . Also, this may be really lame, but Minesweeper rules!

    Strategy games, wrestling games, and adventure/action games.

    Strategy games are my favorite, cause it really involves alot of you to be successful. its not a gmae where u grab a gun and shoot at people. Its not the game where u have ur leveling up and the highest level with the best items wins over everything. Its not a race to the finish. Strategy games involves your critical thinking ability, it calls on you to make split second decisions, it is taxing, and I love it. Though i dont love the fact that it is the faster clicker that wins in strategy games, but I do love the other aspect of the games.

    Wrestling games, only because I like wrestling. On occasion I like fighting games, but my major beef with them is all fighter games and all FPS games alike are the exact same with changes in story lines and the characters u use. No real variety to most of those types of games.

    Finaly Adventure games are great. whether it is just grabing a cartoony character with a sword to smash some enemys for no real reason, to something entirely different, they remain a huge portion of my gameing love

    Strategies and RPGs usually. I started strategies over 4 years ago and it is really nice to use your mind about startegies. There is logic too.
