You don't necessarily need to be a gamer to answer this question, but should have a general idea of games, which I'm sure you all do. If you do play games (either frequently or occasionally), then what genre do you usually prefer to play?

90% MMO Empire/War
10% Real-Time strategy

Haven't played such stuff for a couple of years now. There's still the fascination to be able to master such games I guess, but once you've employed tools to do so on one, it becomes a hollow challenge that repeats itself.

MOBA games which need skill for example, Dota1 Dota2.
I will be playing GW2 when it comes out.
Also play Battlefield 3.
Big fan of Zelda OOT & the series.

Games which need skillful play, which results in out-playing your enemy.

Minecraft, RPGs, GTA IV online for the pure shenanigans of it. I stopped playing RTS because they sucked away too much time.

Zelda is my all-time favorite series. I love the problem-solving aspect of it / using all available resources in new creative ways to succeed / the adventure aspect.

I'm also a fan of MMOs, I find the competition aspect to it / team collaboration exhilarating (any non-grind for hours MMOs - that's why GW / GW2 are among my favorites).

Some FPS I enjoy - mostly ones where there is strategy / technique to perfect and plenty room for creative strategy such as Counter-Strike and Red Orchestra.

I've also just recently gotten into RTS - started out with LoL and am waiting fervently for dota 2 release. I find they're a less intellectual more lax / social version of chess where team dynamics can be implemented as well, I enjoy that part of it (big fan of chess).

I'm probably gonna sound like an idiot, but... does Tetris count? LOL :laughing:

I've been so effin busy the past few years. I stopped playing just when DotA became the thing, so I turned to shorter mini games and ended up with this classic, rockin' awesome Tetris game.

On an analytical note, while it is simple, I find myself strategizing a lot while playing it, somewhat it helps my mind focus. I've gotten a lot of nice ideas while playing it.

And of course, being ENTJ, my Tetris Survival score is at 100th percentile! :wink:


Edit:
Now that I think about it, I did play Amnesia a few months ago, because my friends were too scared to and I had to do it myself cause I *sigh* love them. We were in my friend's house supposedly to "watch" someone play it, I didn't expect that person would be me, the only girl there. I wish I had the time for games again! I used to enjoy Warcraft and Left4Dead so much.
