Strict puzzle games. They just never interested me much.

MMO, JRPG (and pretty much anything with anime, which is generally pretty ugly), and RTS games.

MMO games. It always depresses me when I hear a franchise I like become an MMO (Elder's Scrolls Online, Project Copernicus) or a developer I like making an MMO (Ragnar Tornquist and his The Secret World instead of making the next The Longest Journey).

Console FPS. Console strategy. Console "tactical shooters". JRPG's.,

In general I prefer the PC for most genres barring fighting games and maybe a one or two other genres.

I don't mean to say I outright hate or dislike any genres, but my least favorite would have to be annualized sports games. They're just bland and the gameplay generally doesn't hook me quite like any other annualized franchises.

Sports, racing and MMOs. There are exceptions like Forza 3/4 and so far The Secret World though. RTSs with base-building are not my cup of tea either.

Probably pure puzzle games, never liked them. Also dancing games. Every other genre I can think of right now has games I really like in them.

Dancing games, rhythm games, casual party games. I don't think I've found a JRPG I've truly enjoyed yet.

Cover-based First-person shooters - I never really liked hide and seek

MMORPGs - Remind me too much of real life

Flight sims - Watching ground roll by is fun?

sim-style racing - Another case of realism taking over fun

fighting - More patience required than I have. Not single-player focused.

Western RPGs - either WAY too lacking in direction (Bethesda) or WAY too many numbers (D&D)

puzzle games - especially turn-based

But worst of all is... sports games! Just go join a club and play it in real life!

Copernicus existed before Amalur.. and there was nothing interesting about that games lore/world. With all the financial trouble, I'd be very surprised if it gets released, especially as it'll be going up against the Elder Scrolls Online - even if that's not very good, it's going to pull big numbers.

I really dislike cover based first/third person shooters (and FPS' in general). Seems they're everywhere these days, and I can't remember the last time I played one that I actually liked. It's such a tired and generic genre at this point.

Yes, I forgot about that. I also hate cover based third person shooters. They are boring. MDK running around circle strafing is very more fun than Gears Of War.

JRPG- they were ok in 16Bit 2D days but that's it for me. Glad the genre is borderline irrelevant.

Cinematic Games (ie. game which values cinematic production values over gameplay)- Really weirds me out how accepted this is amongst avid gamers. It's a horrible trend which eschews any gameplay innovation for periphery elements such as exposition. I wish cut-scenes would just die.

Modern Shooters (fps and tps)- hate cover-based mechanics, it was cool for about ten seconds six years ago. I like some shooters but most are just horrible to me.

Like: WRPG, Action adventure, Action hack n' slash, shooting platformers, arcade racers.

Sports, racing, educational and I somewhat hate competitive multiplayer. It really only depends on the people playing. As long as everyone can just have fun and not be a mega douche or gets way over competitive, I'm fine.

MMOs (played WoW for a few years, totally burned out on that)

RTS (though I do enjoy Warcraft III's campaign)

Annual sport sims (baseball, football, soccer; it's of no interest to me)

Completely abstracted puzzle games

  • Western RPG - I'm definitely in the minority here, but I just don't care for the level progression and skill trees.....and the combat is poor compared to most action-adventure games (which is my favorite genre)
  • MMORPG - pretty much for the same reasons as above
  • RTS - Mainly because I'm terrible at these type of games.....I did enjoy Warcraft II and Red Alert when I was younger though. (had to play on the easiest difficulty though)

Sci-fi themed RTS. I just can't wrap my brain around sci-fi tech trees the way I used to with Warcraft's medieval/fantasy units. I dunno why cause I love a lot of other sci-fi game types, fiction, movies etc.

Puzzle games and rhythm games. I have no interest in either. The latter because I have no sense of rhythm, the former because thinking is hard!
