I was organising my game collection and I counted about 5 fighting games. I don't like fighters and I am unsure why I even have them or what motivated me to buy them.

 

I was just wondering what genres people disliked or didn't enjoy. One of my most hated game-play aspects/mechanics is first person platforming. I am playing through Far Cry 3 at the moment and climbing those effing antenna towers is so damn irritating.

Sports games (although I do like the occasional racing game), 2D platformers, mindless fighting, anything that has an arcade feel or is just overly simplistic

I usually enjoy any type of game but according to my Steam library I don't quite like sports or MMOs.

Don't really like fighting games, or hack and slash (there are a few exceptions, but if you can complete the game by just continually mashing the attack button, I don't like it :p)

 

I wouldn't play sports games by myself either, but if you're with a group of friends (drunk?) sports games are sometimes fun.

So boring. Would much rather watch or play real life sports.

Sports games getting no love here on Neowin so far.

 

kind of interesting because I was under the impression the Fifa, Madden etc. were pretty big sellers.

Ugh, I hate Zombie games, they are so cliché and overrated. I am not a fan of sporting games either.

I hate RTS

 

Why?

 

clickfest. When I click I fire a weapon or do some action that apleases me but in a RTS, I click to order some AI to move around or fire or do something useful rather than just standing around. Clicking through menus. If I wanted to do that I would just open Word or Excel and actually get some real work done.

 

I like action games because they engage me and keep me in the race or action. Shooting and racing. A game is supposed to be fun and engaging.  I don't classify RTS as games but rather a clicking simulator.

FPS.  And yet I own all three Bioshock games (BS1 and 2 on both PS3 and PC), UT3, Dishonored, Killzone 2, looking forward to Shadowfall, both Fallout games, Skyrim (hey, I play it in first-person and I use magic so that's sort of shooting), and I'm sure there's others.

 

I enjoy sports games, but I only own one MLB game from this gen, one Madden, and one NCAA.  Mostly because the gameplay and graphics don't change that much during a generation, and ###### buying it every year for the roster update.

 

I'm weird, I know.

Not a fan of sports, or strategy games (though I was a huge fan of C&C older entries and Warcraft before they went MMO route)

 

I dont like MMO either.

i dislike sports, and i do love occasional racing game...  

 

But mindless fighting and 2D platformers, and anything arcade is what got me to LOVE gaming...      what do you play, that you dont like arcade?  only strategy? or MMO?  

 

then again, maybe i am too old...
