What games don't you do..

What games do you not do? Or what games do you avoid.
Example- RPGs, freebie games, board games(nutter), idevice mmorpgs, adventure etc

I don't do physics-based games like angry birds- just bores me stupid.

iDevice games. How can you play a game without buttons? Seriously, I don't care about all the great iPhone exclusives that wouldn't work without a touchscreen. I want to play my Pokemon with my 8 bit graphics and play FPS with massive auto-aims and 15 frames per second.

Actually, I hate most RPG's, retro games, and MMOs.

Shooters, racing games, time management games, "Doodle Jump" games,
non-turnbased RPGs, non-turnbased strategy games, "Tap Tap" games and most sport games.

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Sounds just like me except I loved classic RPGS/KRPGS. Platformers are decent every now and then, but most of them on the iOS are boring. Rolando 2 is probably the best one imo. Japanese/Asian games? Not sure what this is referring to, but I enjoy Asian RPGS..since honestly, nearly every rpg on the iOS is an "Asian" one. I would imagine Japan is in Asia as well xD. But yeah, casual games are boring, arcade games are boring, board games are boring, mmorpgs on the iOS are terrible, and freemium games..LOL. Whoa wtf, you don't like puzzles on the iOS though . It's honestly THE device for puzzle games. There are so many amazing puzzle games out there that are both innovative and extremely fun.

I'm a sucker for shooters, rpgs, and strategy games (rts + tbs). I pretty much have every game that's available on the iOS for each of the 3 genres. Sadly, I've barely touched on most of my rpgs since they take on average 15 hours a piece to complete. I'm only 20 minutes into Aralon even..wish I had the time to play the games I collect .

I don't really "do" RTS games, just not my cup of tea, no matter how high quality the title may be.

Crazy xP, rts has been my favorite genre since I was introduced to starcraft in 3rd grade..9 years ago. I really hope Starfront lives up.

hate most jrpgs and asian/japenese games in general (mostly the art style). Don't do board games or rts games really except for Land Air Sea Warfare I play that a bit. I also don't do turn-based games of any kind (except for a select few like rimelands) they all feel way to slow and usually have way to much strategy involved. I don't do most strategy only games. I don't really mind if a game has strategy in it, but if it's based solely on strategy I usually don't like it. And racing games, I get bored with racing games really really fast.
