Cannot stand Racing Games - I have no interest in cars, and thus have very little understanding of or interest in racing.

Hate certain puzzle games (spot the difference, find the objects - all that rubbish)

But other than that I'm pretty easy, but I do have to be in the mood for any RPGs/hugely story driven games. I go through phases of demanding immersion and phases of quick fix (Multiplayer games).

Yes, as in don't like. That is what not my cup of tea means: not to my liking/of no interest.

No as in I do play/own sports games I just don't play them that much since i'm no sports nut, so they are on the bottom of my list for a genre.

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.


Agreed. Wandering aimlessly on giant maps picking plants or looking for tools or work or whatever, not quite sure what your suppose to do. - Also the up above camera perspective where your like a mile in the air and your in charge of entire platoons of fighting robots attacking other robots. Annoying !

MMO's and RTS's. Just to much micro management of things for my tastes.

Any online games includeing mmorpgs because they are so boreing and repetitive.

Half Life 2 because the story is non exsistant even doom 3 had a better one with a beginning middle and end.

MMOs - I just don't find them at all enjoyable, even when they go free-to-play. Other than that I don't think there's any genre that I dislike. I like FPS, RTS, RPG, action, platformers, sports, puzzle, adventure, racing, tower defence, simulators, fighters and more.

I've never been a fan of sports games, and that includes games that you could put loosely under the sports genre like Skateboarding and Wrestling ones.

Sports and turn-based games don't do much for me. I used to like the old Tiger Woods games, though.
