"Worst: I was gonna say RTS (because the strategy part is kindof lost in real time imo) but I remembered that my disgust for sportsgames like "Fifa whatever-the-fuck-year-it-is" far outweighs that of my dislike for RTS's."

I really can't see why the FIFA 200X games would be classified as strategy games. They'd rather belong in the sports/action cathegory. Have you ever played any of the Warcraft or Command & Conquer games? No?

I think i'll just post to say,
unless you have played every single game in every genre, it's almost impossible to judge which genre is the best and worst due to the fact that they all have good and bad games in them.

You will probably play one good game and decide you like that genre as whole but that wont be enough to say that particular genre is better than another.

Play half life 2 and you'll love FPS, PLay command and conquer and you'll love RTS, play final fantasy 7 and you'll love RPG.

Unless you already have a biased view on the games beforehand.

You say that, but i despise FF7 and Command and Conquer (Half life 2 is ok i suppose). It's all down to opinion really. In my eyes, all first person shooters are very similar, my favourite is Far Cry and is the only one i really play. The same goes for RPGs, if you don't like one, it's not very likely you'll like others. I guess there's exceptions like Secret of Mana, which is a little more of an action-rpg i guess, seeing as you run around and bash enemies.

Sports genre is pretty aweful though in my opinion... i mean you can go out and play football whenever you want.

"Worst Genre: First Person Shooters. Absolutely awful, I can't stand playing them. Unless it's old school Doom and Wolf3D, but the news ones suck. "

yes of course, the new ones suck
ignoring the fact the graphics are awesome and the engine is as well
lets just compare Half Life 2 (which is a new game so it must suck) with Wolf3D where EVERY FUCKING ROOM LOOKS THE SAME
thats something i cant stand playing. i will walk around for 5 minutes then I will get a headache and throw over because every fucking thing looks the same. The graphics are just too horrible.
Dont get me wrong I like old games but thats only for 2d games. I really love the graphics of NES games while I cant stand any old 3d games.


Worst Genre: Those gay pet sims. Its really a genre for girls and I think its gay just like Nintendogs. It doesnt even have to be a pet sim. The Sims are pretty gay as well. It's all the old doll house thing. Girls play with dolls-boys play with toy guns. Girls will play The Sims which is just a virtual doll house and boys will play FPS.

I disagree. To a certain extent yes, theyre sad, but Im always interested in seeing how close programmers can get to real-life simulation. Nintendogs gets boring after about ten minutes, but theres no denying they're still reasonably life-like.

Best Genre : FPS, Action Side Scrollers, Racing Games, Top Down Action Games.

Worst Genre : Empire Building, Puzzle Games, and RTS games that try to do too much...

RTS games that just emphasize on the Detail of the Units, instead of trying to be Real-time, Expantionistic, Universe conquering type games. There is never enough detail in them to make it interesting, usually your limited to a handful of preconcieved unit types which gets old quickly... After the first few hours making the units fight each other it gets pretty stale...

I think the problem is that the professinal game makers try to keep the formula as streamlined and simple as possible to cater to the non-gamers out there.

What ever happened to the days of StarFlight, and David Brabens games, like Elite. There are so many games from the old school of P.C. gaming that just don'tget done anymore, it's all about the quick buck, not the content anymore. That's why there is so much garbage out now. Just think, when was the last time you saw a Console or P.C. game coming out that even remotley got your attention? It's been a while eh?

I've always wanted to design my own computer/video games, even when it was being done by the masters.

Remember Ultima 6, 7, 7 1/2 and 8 < 8 actually stunk it was the departure of the detailed game design? What about Mercenaries, or Breach 1 and 2, and 3 Or Rules of Engagement? What about X-Com, Tegal's Mercenaries, Hard Nova, Carrier Command, or Planets Edge, Star Control 1 and 2, Covert Action, Postal, Starflight 1 & 2. You might not remember or have heard of some of these games, but they were some of the ones that made me say, "Damn, I wanna do that!" Mind you that most if not all of the games I mentioned were 2D hand drawn!
