Fighting, role-playing, roguelike, racing, platformers. There are just so many genres in the video game world that it can be hard to pick a favorite. From time to time, I like to think over all the games I have played over the years, and decide which genre suits me best.
In all honesty, it is very hard for me to choose a favorite. Admittedly, because of their very nature, the genre I have most likely poured the most time into has been the RPG. From Pokémon to the Tales
series, there is just so much to see and explore in these types of games. I’m not sure, however, that I would classify the genre as my favorite, but I sure have had a great deal of enjoyment in playing RPGs.
If I was forced to pick, I would have to say that my favorite genre would have to be the action-puzzler in the vein of The
Legend of Zelda. I simply love the mental stimulation that games like Zelda and Darksiders bring to the table, so much so that games like Resident Evil and Portal are some of my favorite of all time.
So what is your favorite genre and why? How hard is it for you to pick?
