I like games that I can actually play, aka PC games. I don't want to have to buy an xbox or wii or whatever to play something. I've never owned one or played on one, not in my entire life. So, things like Sid Meyer's Civilisation are the best.
mario kart 64 the mario series(didnt play much of the spinoffs...mario tennis mario party...mario poker...er...whatever) zelda series capcom ird1 DODGEBALL!!!!!
ya old school was super awesome because ..well I think maybe because we were KIDS...just like thundercats was awesome..at the time...ever watch an old episode lately? cheese much?
games took a dive for a bit but have recently enjoyed an onslaught of quality imo it seems the devs are getting over the graphics thing and realizing without GAME-PLAY ppl won't PLAY-GAME...<retty much sums up my opinion of videogames actually
that being said I'm too busy lately to play much other than plug n play games on breaks...pick it up ..play it...drop it ..back to work...
never played hopskotch...more of a kings court kid ...or dodgeball aka murderball
I'll play pretty much anything, having been part of the pong/space invaders generation (yes I still remember times when there was no such thing as electronic entertainment of the sort.)
These days, it comes down to time. I don't have time for MMORPGs; I just can't spend the thousands and thousands of minutes wasting my brain and time on attempting to get the next hot item. If I can't play for five minutes without the ability to save practically anywhere, it's a waste of my time.
I love the shooters, Call of Duty series in particular. I'm not a great player so stuff like Operation Flashpoint are out. Left 4 Dead is a nice twist. But the new server laddering.... gawd, SUCH a waste of time, really. I'd rather hang out with my kids.
I love the horror genre; Resident Evil, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill (the original).
I abso-fricken-lutely hate specific types of sims. Flight simulators, driving games (except for the GT series, when I could afford both the time and money), Sims, and builders (Civilization and such). I played the grand daddy of them all, Populous.
RTS is boring to me: click, click, click.
Mystery and Puzzle games are always great, but for me, if the graphics adds nothing to the story, it takes away from the plot and is completely useless.
Sports games... not for me. I played Blitz for the freakish crazy fun factor, but that's as far as I go. Well, the Wii games are fun though. Well, and the old International VolleyBall, International Track and Field, LOL.
My "recent" favourites include Okami for the Wii, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion for the PC (OMG the modding community simply rocks that game into the ground), Guitar Hero: World Tour for obvious reasons.
Next Purchase will probably be Call of Duty 5: World at War, although I hear multiplayer is a real bitch.
