I think one of the things that make an RPG so attractive is the storylines. Many people who love to read (like myself) find themselves amidst in wonder as they play for hours on end to find out whats going to happen next. Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross are two very good games in that manner. Chrono cross has had me gaping in awe at the suprise of some connection of some sort that was just made.

RPG definitally. Adventures just dont have the Story down well enough.

BTW: Another game where you can be evil or good is called Jade Empire, where you can follow the way of the open palm or the way of the closed fist.

What are you on about? Adventure games have the best storylines, RPG storylines are basically the same thing (with exceptions).

But when it comes to story lines for adventure games it has to be clever, interesting and it has to fit together with the game and has to make sense.

No RPG could possibly have the intellectual qualities of an Adventure game.

I choose other because I enjoy the sci-fi action shooters such as Wing Commander, Freelancer and the old game Protostar (does anyone remember that one?). I guess some of the latter, especially Protostar, fall under the Adventure category because it's more of a thinking persons game rather than an all out action game such as Wing Commander. It's so hard to fit a game in one genre these days...

As for the RPG thing, they are so popular because of the large worlds, ability to play and grow as a different person, and open ended option to do what ever you basically want (well, some rpgs allow this). And there are a lot of games that allow you to choose good or evil. I can not name them all nor could anybody here, but it's not really a new idea. (I believe) all the Elder Scrolls games allowed this. The only problem with RPGs these days are they all seem the same: the same races, weapons, lands, so on and so forth. I just go tired of them and left the ground completely for space.

Anywho, I thought I'd chime in with this. Peace.

FPS, I have been playing them since marathon and dark forces, well as close to playing as I could at that age and they have alwais been the best. Both because much more raw skill is involved than any role playing game, aswell as the fact that it is much more of a personal feeling as opposed to basecly every game type where you not only spend the entire game looking at someone else (who you are controlling) but are thrown into their situations and their plots, and although fps doesn't entirely eliminate this, it helps. Also any fps offers more exciting situations and expriences in comparison to tbs or puzzle games, where what you expirience is litteraly cut out for you already. So yeah, FPS, but that doesn't necisseraly(sp) mean Halo, I'll settle for Halo, but I wont root for it...

I picked platforms because the first game I ever played was Super Mario Brothers for the NES, which had already been out for five years by the time I was born. It's certainly not the only kind of game I like: RPGs (More specifically, Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, FF games), RTSs (Warcraft) and... I can't really say FPSs except for HL1+2, only because they're two of the few FPSs that have involved, deep backstories.

Why? Because there is a limitless replay value and you can be extremely original with its controls (ie: DDR, Guitar hero, Gitaroo Man). And in my opinion the genre includes some of the hardest games ever made, I've been working on level 2 of Gitaroo Man for 3 years now! :GM6:

The question is what you favourite game genre is. You can't have two favourites.

That's why you can only choose one. If you chose more than one, then you're just naming the genres you like, not your favourite.

Having just deposited vote 666, I feel a little wierd...

Some games fit into more than one category. Most of my favorite games are both TBS and RPG-like (Fire Emblem, FFT, etc) for example. But I voted RPG because there are more good RPGs out there than TBS. Once you play through Fire Emblem and FFT(A) and maybe Advance Wars there's really not much left.

I don't see whypeople love FPSs so much. I find the controls to be often clunky and non-intuitive and the gameplay to barely differ between most games in the genre. I've only played a few shooters that break in any way from the "run, shoot, run, shoot" formula.

Definately platform, because some of my favourite games are platforms. Also first person shooter, because of Doom.

My passion is Space Simulation games; all the Wing Commander games were at the top!

WC Privateer was the one game that changed my life forever! (It is now my goal in life to try and recreate the action and open endness of that game! )
