Default What is your favorite game genre?

I've voted adventure though some games might fall more accurately under the category of action. I'm tending to play in a very story driven way these days, really enjoyed Days Gone and Dying Light recently.
I do enjoy the odd survival game, waking up on some ominous island with nothing but a twig and one energy bar.

I'd be a Pug… wait, what's happened? This isn't the Dog Poll anymore, could it be that our furry friends vote wasn't deemed as important as an actual Game Poll…

I'm shocked

For me "Grand Strategy", a la Crusader Kings and Stellaris.

Yep, forgot this one! Factorio & Minecraft have both enthralled me for thousands of hours. Love the more cerebral aspect to the gameplay.

Push me in a corner and it's going to be strategic, more like Strategic RPG,s, not Armchair general. but it's really splinting hairs, I enjoy all those listed with the exception of sports games (a big no no) and Adventure games I don't play so much these days.

Definitely shooters for me as well … before becoming immersed into RPG's in 2002, I really hadn't played one (aside from some hours in original Diablo I'd gotten as a gift) since the original Wizardry and a couple of others in the very early 80s. It was all shooters.

Immersive Sims, definitely.

You did mention hybrid genres not being an option but my selection is shooter as the closest to first person immersive games with stealth :-)

I also play racing games (Dirt series, Forza) and 4X or some strategy games (finally started playing the Stronghold series and it's addicting)

Certainly other styles like Horizon Zero Dawn and plenty of other types of games.

Just never multiplayer anything

Late to the party but my favorites are all genre's of RPG's and strategy games. Followed by immersive sims and FPS games. No multiplayer for me either as I'm not a fan.

Though I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't mention I play one MMO.
