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 wouldn't call Diablo and Torchlight story-driven RPGs at all.

    Your order is meaningless. My chaos is significant.

The biggest problem with MMORPGs that exist out there is not with the crafting or item gathering, imo, but the particularly boring way its implemented. Its too mundane to do, and everything is about getting XP and leveling up, until your character is say a 325th level miner.

But take for instance, this game, UnReal World, which is a survival game based on Iron Age Finland:

You have to skin animals, cut meat, you have to track them by following their trails, you can starve of hunger and die of thirst, you need to sleep, you can freeze and catch colds, etc. Its a really good game. The reason is because the game puts some meat and realism into everything, and everything isn't just about leveling up. There are no 'levels' in the game. Tasks are no longer mundane, they're about survival.

Its a game still in progress of development in case its new to anyone here.

Hmm... kind of a hard one.
Sure there's lots of genres I don't play, but I haven't played them so I can't say that I'm against them.
Plus I don't really know what genres some games fit into. I'm more into Racing Games, and some FPS Games.
I guess if I had to pick something, it`d be kiddie games I don`t like for sure,
plus I don`t really like action figure or super hero type games like Batman, Spiderman, etc. etc.

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

Also games like THE SIMs really bore me.

lol am I the only one that thought this was funny since his sig is showing score and kills from pulling the same trigger over and over to collect EXP and level up lol.

As for me, some strategy games depending on how they are done. I don't like games like Civ. Most FPS games, and low budget anime fighting games.

Okay, I guess Torchlight isn't really story-driven but Diablo certainly is. Even if the main focus of the game is on combat and exploration, the story is told through characters you encounter and lore you discover. I certainly played it for the story and I enjoyed watching the cinematic cutscenes. There was a lot of discussion and controversy about the story too on Blizzard's forums when the game was first released.

It's definitely better than some RPGs that put little emphasis on the story, like World of Warcraft.
