Just wondering what genres generally turn people off? For me? I've never been much into fighting games or military FPS.

Halo 4 reguvinated FPS for me, Black ops 2 was a turn off

As for genre, I don't like the dance/fake guitar shovelware games I'm seeing. I use to like those games when I saw them hooked to Japanese DDR machines but for home use, nah.

I really dislike playing fighting games, but I enjoy watching other people play them especially at tournaments. I can appreciate the dedication it takes to be good at them at a competitive level.

MORPGs or whatever they're called. where you just do the same crap over and over to collect EXP and level up.
Repetitive.

Also games like THE SIMs really bore me.

MMOs do seem to just soak up people's time.

Anything you need to study for!
I don't like games where you need a mouse, and the whole keyboard.
Keep it simple :)

Sports and wrestling. I can deal with a hundred final fantasy games, they are all unique in the storylines and characters. I can only deal with the same NFL players and a few new draft picks so many times. What are we on now like Madden 400?

That's an interesting question because I never think about the genres I dislike. And now that I thought of it, only three come to mind: sports, rhythm/music games (like Just Dance and Dance Dance Revolution), and MMORPGs.

I used to enjoy playing sports games as a kid but I grew out of it as I started playing other genres like first-person shooters and RTS games. Playing rhythm/music games is fun at first but I get bored of it pretty quickly. The longest I've enjoyed a game from that genre is 10 minutes. And only because I was competing against a friend.

As for MMORPGs, I can't stand the repetitive nature of games like World of Warcraft or Guild Wars. I find it extremely boring to complete a similar task over and over again. It feels like I'm wasting my time only to get a minimal amount of experience and/or gold. I prefer story-driven RPGs like Diablo 3 or Torchlight 2 that don't require you to complete mundane tasks (even if the story kinda sucks, as was the case with Torchlight 2).

I don't like MMOs, RTSs, or Sports (though I played a lot of NBA Hangtime back in the day :p)

Anything turn-based I simply cannot stand, and while I don't really like Mortal Kombat style games and avoid them, I don't dislike them like turn-based.

MMO's, as as above, nothing new despite buying most of the popular ones. I must admit though, I really had a good feeling when playing WoW for the first time on release and for about a year. Just a shame it was a one-off experience, just disappointed with every game since. Feels like I'm working when I play them now, not having fun :)

I generally like sports games, they just don't hold the appeal (used to love the arcade ones!). I'm quite happy to play the management sims though.
