RPG's. They are much longer, they require you to think & use your mind(That's me!), they have a lot of deep storyline, great battle system, great characters, fun mini-games(sometimes), great music & Great graphics & FMV's. I love Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts & Fire Emblem.
I play a few non-RPG games such as: SSBM, Mario Cart Duoble Dash, Mario Party 6.
It doesn't really matter to me, I'll give any game and/or any genre combination a try at least once. I don't like first-person shooters or reality-based sports games. I lean towards third-person shooters and fantasy-type sports games (like the Mario sports games) in those two genres.
Overall, though, it's definitely the RPG genre for me. More specifically I like Action RPGs and Strategy RPGs. I'm very curious about Dirge of Cerberus' "Shooter RPG" style, though.
I played Kingdom Hearts for at least two years at the free time after studying. For now I prefer open-world RPGs, and, by the way, I'm workng on the humanities projects on the video games and experience problems in choosing among sociology research topics. Can anyone help me to come up with the ideal topic, please?
It's a little weird with me ... I mostly play genres I have a lot of issues with. For example, I played quite a few roguelike games even though I dislike the lack of progress most of them have because you often start over without keeping anything.
I like Metroidvania games even though I neither like Metroid nor Castlevania too much.
I love JRPGs but it always takes me forever to play them - I don't have much time and I get distracted quite quickly ("ooh, I have to do this shitton of sidequests to get the Platinum, let's go!").
I'm quite a fan of branching path stories or interactive films how people like to call them even though they are often heavily flawed.
Otherwise, I love playing Co-Op games regardless of which genre (gameplay must be fun) and competitive games against friends (Towerfall is my favorite).
I can't stand shooter games even though I wanna try Farpoint someday. Realistic sport games are also not my thing.
