What's your favourite game genre?

Looking back at the games I've made so far, I've realised that I've never actually really liked any of them.

I want to make a really good game, so I want to ask all you guys, what kind of game genre you like the most.

Vote in the poll above.

Cheers,
Koh Jing Yu

I like anything that makes me think, so, for me, strategy.

My favorites are the quick-to-pick-up-and-put-down time wasters...like all the popcap games and doodlejump

I picked strategy, but I was really surprised that Role-Playing wasn't an available choice.

It's cool, refreshing, and irresistibly tantalizing...ChocoVanilla Ice-Cream!

I only put those that weren't too hard to make (school is reopening ), but role playing elements are a must in any game, to me.

I like RPGs most, as well as tower defense games lately.

You really should have added role playing games to the list.

Make a decent pole playing game with a challenging turn based combat system and you'll be more than successful with that.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I like all genres (if its a good game).

However I prefer games that are specific to the iPhone/touch like Labyrinth and Sway rather than ported over games by Gameloft/EA (Crash Kart, Fifa 10 etc.). But i guess you wouldn't call this a 'genre'
