What genre of game do you find yourself playing most?

I have a lot of point and click adventures and RPGs in my Steam and GOG libraries. But I find that lately I've been gravitating more to playing third-person action adventure games (Arkham Asylum series, Infamous 2, 3D Legend of Zelda games, etc.) instead.

What genre of game do you find yourself playing or most thinking about playing?

This topic can also extend to specific franchises, if you find yourself going back to a particular franchise rather than the genre it's in.

  • I've always loved adventure games and it's the one genre I've consistently spent a lot of time on over the years. I used to spend a lot of time on strategy games too, but some years ago they suddenly didn't excite me as much anymore. It was probably around the time Age of Empires III came out. Red Alert 3 is probably the only RTS I've played since then, and I abandoned it because it just didn't appeal much to me. And I always liked the silliness of those games (except Tiberian Sun, which I really didn't like). I've also sunken a lot of time in simulator type strategy games like Sim City and Civilization, but I've pretty much abandoned those as well. To this day, The Patrician on Amiga is probably the one game I've spent the most time on.

    These days it's still adventures, but I'm also very fond of casual RPGs with focus on adventure and humor like Deathspank and On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. Platformers probably take up most of my time though. Preferably adventure or puzzle oriented like Psychonauts, Closure, Vessel or Limbo, but straight-up platformers are good too. I used to play those a lot when I was younger, but it's only the last couple of years I rediscovered my love for them after I got a Wii and started playing Mario and the other multiplayer plaformers with my wife.

    So yeah, adventures and platformers. Oh, and the occasional puzzle game. I love the Layton and Drawn games.

    Outside of Telltale's games, I play a lot of TF2 but besides that I also like platformers.
  • I used to only play RTS. Then I started with adventure games... few FPS... now, nearly everything I play is a massive RPG that I don't have time to finish.
  • I play exclusively text adventures
  • Mostly RPGs at the moment with the odd old adventure game thrown in and if I want to listen to a podcast I stick Football Manager on. Just can't sit and listen to a podcast while doing nothing else.
  • Honestly? The Simpsons tapped out freemium games.
  • Mainly just RPG's. I've found a liking to action-adventures too.

    I still play mostly adventures and platformers, and occassionally I gravitate towards playing a lot of racing games and puzzle games. It depends on my mood.
  • I play a lot of RPGs and plenty of Point and Clicks...
