RPG followed closely by action

Nothing beats a good platformer. I still go back to Banjo-Kazooie at least once a year.

This should have been the kind of poll that allows more than one choice. I can't really pick just one.

I picked Action because the term is so vague that it encompasses enough games i like.

I love old school style RPGs, I just never finish them.

As of right now I'm into action western RPG preferably if it's open world but still good if it's anything like Mass Effect. It's really the open world nature I'm attracted to so franchises like GTA and Saints Row are what I'm into.

Given how so many genres are now in single games I like a game that is an Action Adventure RPG

What exactly does action mean?

#9 Posted by HerbieBug (4208 posts) -

I voted platformers but I need to specify that only applies to 2D ones.

List of preference goes 2D platformers > rail shooters (Rez, Panzer Dragoon) > 3rd person action (Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta, Shadow of the Colossus) > RPGs > racing > the rest.

Please Sega make a new Panzer Dragoon. To Nintendo; I will buy a Wii U if you make a good new traditional rail shooting Starfox. That's a promise. I will buy two copies if you have the characters speak gibberish like they did in Starfox 1.

RPG by far nothing is better than digging into a good long RPG adventure.

You know what? I came into this thread thinking to myself "I'll probably just pick shooter" but now that I think about it, there is no way I could pick just one option.

But definitely not racing/sports.

<p>I don't know. Ask me a few months ago and I would have said "FPS" but now... I don't know. I like RPG's, action games, racing games, puzzle games, platformers, shooters, pretty much anything within reason and I'm not sure which one I'd pick as my favorite. Hell, my top games of all time consist of a Metroidvania game, a FPS, a platformer, a JRPG, and a first person 3D metroidvania game. But I don't like sports games..</p>

Used to be RTS then JRPG, now it's just "games that are good." The only genre I haven't really played that much are traditional puzzle games, with Builder's Block being the only one that I own. Apart from that I'm extremely competent at virtually everything, single player and multiplayer and enjoy games equally across various genres and mediums. I played Starcraft for 12 years or so; only played Starcraft 2 for a month; though the single player portion of that month was quite enjoyable and I look forward to the expansion. As for JRPGs... hopefully there's a bunch of decent Dark Souls clones in the future or something. Just bought Tactics Ogre for the PSP which seems reasonably solid; but mainline console releases are few and far between. My 20 hours with Supreme Commander on hard were a solid amount of fun but I'd still prefer going back to Forged Alliance (and its experimental infinite energy factory) over it if I had to choose.

HTML tags that don't make much sense, I might add.

Anyway, my answer: strategy RPGs. Because duh.

I will say "Open World Games" are probably the best genre at present, depending on how inclusive you make that.

#17 Posted by BeachThunder (12428 posts) -

Adventure, puzzle, FPS.

Probably music games, some of my favorite games tie music in closely (sound shapes, bit trip runner, audiosurf), and although it's pretty much a puzzle game, I also consider my all time favorite game, lumines to be a music game as well.

Nothing would make me happier than a series of Souls-likes made by a variety of different developers. I want someone to make a 2D Souls game with Metroid style open world or a Mega Man style hub. I also want to see a Souls/Diablo mixture.

I guess action but I also really love platformers, fighting games, shooters, racing games, certain sports games.

But what is action? I know something like God of War or the new Metal Gear would fit that description but what about something like Jak 3 which was part racing, part shooter and part platformer? Would that also be considered action?

#21 Edited by ImmortalSaiyan (4702 posts) -

I can get enjoyment from even mediocre games from the Character Action, Fighting and JRPG genres.

1. RPG (especially of the "J" variety)

2. Puzzle/Platformer
