Simulations for me. Anno 2070, Tropico, the sims, zoo tycoon, anything made by Maxis.
I like making systems and improving them. And then destroying them....all my game files seem to come to a dystopia end.
Not a gamer but games I would become compelled to play would be tekken, soul caliber, mario 64, or sonic the hedgehog
I love the City Building Series, especially Zeus: Master of Olympus. Then they switched to 3D which I found less appealing, but now a new isometric game set in the Middle Ages in in the works; I'm excited.
I also played Commandos II a lot.
More recently a few geostrategic games from Paradox Interactive: Europa Universalis III, Victoria II and Crusader Kings II. It's beautiful how divergent worlds can get, partly shaped by the player, partly by copious amounts of random numbers. It would be cool if most of the randomness were replaced with secret formulas based on unknown variables - just like real life.
Hmm I played few MMOs but since the free ones are usually cash shop ruined I stopped....
I played League of Legends, but the people in there are so pure geniuses and they always are on my team, I just cannot stand winning every game, because my team is just owning on all the lanes and the teamwork is just ...... OP.....
Yes Sheldon, it was sarcasm
I play Minecraft on occasions, the more mods the better, I love to mess up with new things, discovering stuff and making huge base.
I also like soccer simulators, like Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (old but it is the best one :D)
I also like strategies, sandbox games of all kinds.
Havent played a shooter for quite some time and dont feel like playing it again
Back then when it was new I loved pokemon games on emulator now I kind of remember the story and it is not much attractive....
Since I quit WoW 3 years ago, I haven't played much of anything but I'll go chronologically
Atari: Moon Patrol, Pitfall I and II. Pitfall II at least had the framework of an adventure game. Moon Patrol was a side scroller with a definitive ending. Never had much interest in games like Pac Man.
Nintendo: I had a broader mix of interests. Played sports, actions, and platforms games, but definitely preferred Adventure/RPG/Puzzle games. All 3 Mario games (though I preferred 2 because it was a bit darker), both Zeldas, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, Metroid, Kid Icarus, the Castlevania Series. Then my absolute favorites: Blaster Master, Bionic Commando, FFI (still play it from time to time), Dragon Warrior I, III AND IV (didn't like II). Of special note were the point and click mystery games like Shadowgate, Deja Vu, and the Uninvited.
SNES: Actraiser because of the simulation element, Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out, F-Zero, Zelda. Then my favorites, Ogre Battle, FF2 and 3, King Arthur's World (medieval Lemmings type game), and Earthbound which set RPGs in modern time which I loved the idea of.
Other console games: Turok series, MDK series, Gauntlet, Mario, Metroid and Zelda (excluding Marjoro's Mask and Twilight Princess), Smash Bros, WWF titles, the Myst series, FF up through X then it got all meh, Baldur's Gate: DarK Alliance, Diablo, Twisted Metal
PC: Started with Lode Runner on the Apple, continued with D & D games like Pool of Radiance on the Commodore, kept going with Baldur's Gate I & II, and then my favorite of all time Planescape: Torment which they are FINALLY making a sequel to 15 years later.
WoW blew them all away: Especially GMing for a really good guild for a few years.
I can't see another game becoming all consuming again, but I guess I don't know that for sure.
I used to play Zelda series, Final Fantasy (original), games like Adventures of Lolo... Battletoads, SimCity, Populous, Mario Kart, Secret of Mana, etc. then MK/Street Fighter series. I haven't really played games since SNES unless it was just random like Soul Calibur series or something where I can quickly learn some moves and compete, then put it down. I bought a modded Xbox but it was just so I could stream files and run emulators and then I was done with them. I just have no time for gaming really.
I would call myself an *extremely* advanced player of SNES Mario Kart... I would handicap myself in battle mode and try to win using only banana peels or green shells.
I totally forgot about the Tales series. ToS1 and 2 were amazing. Which brings me to my first favorite type of game: RPGs. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game of all time. I haven't exactly played a lot... I've played most of the SNES FFs, but never finished them. Super Mario RPG was pretty awesome. Would Pokemon be considered an RPG? Those were cool too - Black is actually my favorite of them all. I can't remember any others at the moment.
I'm not into first person shooters that much, but I do occasionally play Counter-Strike: Source.
Random online puzzle games are fun.
I enjoy basically anything that requires any kind of strategy and tactics. Age of Empires, Medieval 2, Frozen Synapse, RPGs... The more in-depth the strategy, the more fun it is. Which is why I love Medieval 2.
EDIT: I'm also into a lot of adventure games, I guess. Super Mario 64 being the pinnacle of them. I'm also a god at Super Mario World.
