What is Your Favorite Style of Video Game to Play?

Geek Out: What's Your Favorite Style of Video Game?

I've professed my love for Mini Ninjas before. With the release date inching closer, I'm getting more excited to play, which should come as no surprise. I'm a big fan of action-style games that not only let me kick butt, but let me use my brain to think my way through levels. However, I'm also a racing girl at heart — I can run my virtual car ragged around the course for hours. On the flip side, my boyfriend can get super involved in a co-op shooter (don't eveeen get me started), which I admit I'm not very good at.

Everyone has their own individual taste, and this includes their favorite style of game play, so tell me — what is your favorite style of video game?

I like old school arcade games too. I'm not smart enough for anything that's beyond the complexity of pong.

I'm such a Tomb Raider fan I have Anniversary, Legend and Underworld plus I've started playing Gears of War (I know I'm a litte behind) plus I like to play fun games like Lego Indiana Jones and Star Wars the Complete Saga.

I love open-ended games that don't put you along a single path. This is probably why I'm still hooked on Fallout 3 and Oblivion.

i like puzzle/mystery games a lot but i think zelda and mario are my favs. i'll play any of them all day long. for some reason i lack the coordination to really play fps. but i do enjoy kicking butt so i play them. i just don't win. haha.

I love first person shooters, but, unfortunately, am horrendous at them. I'll still play them on "easy" though. I actually like lots of different games, but my faves are RPGs. The Elder Scrolls series (Morrowind, Oblivion) are the best. You can really get lost in their huge gaming worlds and great stories.

I used to be addicted to video games when I was really young, loved the Mario and Sonic games. But, lately all I find myself enthusiastic about playing are RPG's like the Final Fantasy series. In fact, of the twelve games I've bought in the past decade, eight of them were Final Fantasy games (including the anthologies). And the only reason I invested money in a PS2 was primarily for Final Fantasy XII. And the only reason I'll be buying a PS3 is for Final Fantasy XIII (with the added benefit of actually owning a Blu-Ray player; a function that will likely go unused). I also have a fondness for action games like Zelda and Shadow of the Colossus. But really, it's not so much the type of game I'm interested in so much as the power of the story. Zelda and Final Fantasy excel in storytelling, even Shadow of the Colossus, despite its extreme minimalism, contains a story far more compelling than most other games I've demoed. Add the innovative and absorbing gameplay design of the aforementioned games and you have true art. My emphasis on story is probably why I can't get into sports/racing, first-person shooter, simulation, and other games.
