This I thought would be a nice poll to see where people stand in general when it comes to a type of game which do you pick most frequently. I lean towards a great adventure game myself and this is also nice developer info to have as well. So feel free to list your games of choice and your reasoning behind your choice.

Although I do enjoy a good RPG and 4x'er, Sims just reach the parts that other gaming genres don't reach. Shooters I can take or leave, some adventures though I had a lot of fun from eg: The Longest Journey. But for long term appeal in my view, Sims are the outright winner <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I'm somewhat of a monomaniac when it comes to games. I've played plenty over the years, from the primitive to the flashy DX type, but it's Elite and its clones that I always go back to. A nostalgic pic of my career in Elite Plus... heh!

I voted RPG. But I'd play any game if I consider it to be fun.

Hmm... I prefer simuations and Action (Cockpit only) games. Why? Because the player has 100% participation in what is going in the game's world.

I'm annoyed while playing 4x games (jeez, 1 turn later i the whole enemy armada is in my doorstep <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_mad.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' /> especially I'm RTS fan), adventure games are too little bit slow for me, FPS and TPS games I'm playing from time to time as RPG.

I'm still remember Star Control II: Ur-Quan Masters (Adventure Action Hybrid) and StarLancer. Where are the style of these games in today's games?

None of them, mime would be a cross between a simulation like Frontier an adventure like megatraveller (think Mass Effect for a more upto date game) and GTA for the 3rd person environments.

I like a good adventure, which I thought more of Mass Effect 1&2 to be an adventure than a shooter. I guess as I age I like to play twitch shooters but my reaction times have slipped over the years so a slower pace isn't that bad. Like I think Black Prophecy at times is to dis-orientating. But I agree with s20dan, I will play anything IF it has the features I am looking for )or least some of them).

I can't tell. I currently play Wargame:European Escalation and some space sims. What am I supposed to click?

Same here. Althought I have a soft spot for flight & space simulators (Just got the Amiga version of "Knight of the Sky" <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//girl_crazy.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' /> <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//girl_crazy.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' /> )

Remember getting the demo on Amiga Format and playing it for months but never bought the game
