How about we just don't use polls?

I don't think I have a favorite genre. Aside from Puzzle, I can think of really memorable and enjoyable titles from each of the main genres.

Games with a range of these aspects are the most memorable to me. I love Zelda, a game that blends action, adventure and puzzles brilliantly. I would never be able to pick out just one... any game that excels in it's genre is a winner to me :)

What's 'shump'?

A Shump is a game genre that consists on controlling a ship (usually) and destroying enemies while the screen auto-scrolls in the process. There are famous games of this genre such as Ikaruga, R-type and Gradius.

Well, I usually don't really care about the genre, but if I were to pick some, I would choose RPG and Puzzle (without randomness). First one, because it often contains an interesting story, and second, because it lets me think about things through without time limit and I can return to it at any time.

But generally it's not the genre which appeals me the most, but a good story. ^^
(also, that's a pity that some games claiming to be RPG base it on a technical side, with character stats, skills and such, rather than containing really interesting story -. .-')

My favorite genre is definitally RPG. The stories to them can get so emotional, and so intense you just feel so apart of the game. Of course that's when they're done right.

Though there can be a huge downside. Combat. If the combat doesn't fit the game it can turn out really repetitive.

I voted for RPG, however within the genre of RPG I really enjoy strategy and simulation. I'm not a huge fan of action action action in a game, but rather I enjoy the thinking required to win the battle. Also, story lines are very important, without a good story a game really needs to make up for it in it's actual gameplay (off-road racing games come to mind).

Action/Adventure and RPGs are my favorites, but I play a pretty wide variety of games.  My least played are probably sports, racing, and RTS games.

I added sports, what is RTS?
