I'll list my top 3 genres as being:-
Hex wargames
Interactive fiction
Flight sims

Being a compulsive gamer I'll have played examples of the other listed genres, but not enough to put them in any particular order.

Phew. That's quite a list. The favourites are pretty obvious to me, and there are some I've no idea about (Dig games?), but these are roughly my favourite genres, in rough order. Haven't included retro, as it completely depends on the genre.

RPGs
Arcade/Adventure/ARPG/Football (meaning soccer, and including arcade and management sims)
Platform//Tennis games/Beat 'em ups/Point and click
Shooters (top-down, twinstick, FPS and run'n'gun included)/Strategy (including 4x games)
Roguelikes

Then there's a dropoff, and after a while we get:
Puzzle
Other sports games (eg NFL or ice hockey)
Interactive fiction
Rhythm games
Runners

Drop-off again...
Driving games - has to be pretty damned good to interest me, but not against them per se
Match-3s - as above
Idle clickers - as above


Don't play CCGs or anything MMO, so can't include them.

My fave is Puzzle-Action-Physics, in that order, in fact that's a genre Puzzle-Action-Physics.

I love story driven games the most.

My top picks (no order):

Interactive fiction
Point and click adventure
RPGs
Puzzles
Platformers

What I like the least

MMO or social games. Because I feel I need to play and I love gaming on my own pace.

Strategy - because I suck at it.

Roguelikes - I like the feeling of progression, which there isn't here in most cases.

Match 3.
