My first loves in Genre X Y Z

I love a lot of games in a lot of genres, but I haven't always done. In ages past my tastes were far more narrower and it look discovering games I love to broaden my tastes and show me what other genres have to offer.

Sometimes these will be the first game I've played in a genre, but not always. Sometimes I've played a second rate game in a genre and dismissed it until discovering the first rate game that does it right. There are also a few honorable mentions to games in genres that had previous loves in it but still felt like new to me due to the franchise or the take on the genre.

I'll go in chronological order.
