Which is your favorite out of the differnet video game genres?
Mmm.... very hard to decide.
I play a lot of games based on how I'm feeling. To pick one favorite..... Okay, if I had to pick one genre to play for the rest of my life, stuck on an island, etc etc, I would pick....
....Role-Playing. It can take on so many different forms and moods and styles, it would just be the optimal choice. It's the carpet-bomb of game genres.
- Rockstar's brand of open world games.
- DICE's brand of openish sandboxish combined arms online multiplayer first person shooters.
- Bioware's brand of chose-your-own adventure RPGs.
- Criterion's brand of fast and furious car racing.
- Blizzard's brand of minutia and care and flair, regardless of what they're doing.
- Might and magic realtime combat as seen in games like Dark Souls and Dragon's Dogma.
- XCOM's brand of management.
I voted simulation, because I enjoy good dynamic simulations in any genre. It's a cop-out, I know. An amalgamation of all of the above would be quite neat. I guess GTA V is going to be as close as it gets in that regard. So somewhat prematurely - GTA V is the perfect example of my favorite genre. Respectively The Witcher 3, if we're talking might & magic-style core gameplay and fantasy setting.
I love role-playing games, but I can't get through many of them historically because their stories quickly blend together and become the same game with different sprites. That being said, when I find one that breaks the mold or at least cloaks itself enough for me to not realize it's the same ol' thing... well, I devour it.
I loved Ni No Kuni for this because it blended a lot of things.
However, action-adventure is my favorite because they are fun to play, have a story, and honestly are just well made lately.
