    <3 musical rhythm games ... durned Guitar Hero and Rock Band. (Though it did get me to pick up the real thing, so there's some good to 'em :P)

    RPGs, well, yeah, easy pick; your Final Fantasy, your Seiken Densestu, your Elder Scrolls and Fallout, I lurves them. Engrossing storyline and actual character development, yay! Sandbox play with little to no characterization in the protagonist, sure! As long as it's fun, I'd play as a plank of wood against an army of chainsaw-wielding aquatic dam-building rodents~

    Puzzles and platformers, the "chocolate" and "peanut butter" of video gaming - mix 'em in any other genre, and I'm all over it. Mix 'em together, and you'll not see me til the danged thing is solved.

    I can't stand the musical games because the interface (except percussion) is nothing like the real instrument.

    you don't have adventure games. They don't make them anymore, but that's one of my favorite genres. Like King's Quest or Monkey Island (I think that is what is was called) or hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy.

    I'll let you all try to guess my favorite genre...

    Lord of the Rings Online and Neverwinter Nights

    Should be simple enough.

    It's as if there are people who play RPGs that don't have computers or something. Seriously, people need to upgrade to 1994 already. - - -TheRedRobedWizard

    A Timmy is a foul mouthed child or teenager. They are fairly common, if not rampant on player vs. player video games, Halo is especially bad for some reason. All they do is scream, yell and cuss at you because you have the audacity to kill them, or because you can't kill them.

    Here is a link to some videos that'll give you the basic idea.

    Yes, it's sad but true. There are middle aged Timmies as well.

    Trash talking is a must for FPS, it started with everyone playing 007:Goldeneye with their friends in the same room and has carried over to other peoples rooms with the advancement of tech. If you don't like it, I say, shut it off (the voice) it's a public game. And if you contend that you want to use the voice for teamwork/strategy join a gaming clan but don't expect everyone to accept your standards.
