Third person action/adventure for sure - they are just what 'games' are all about to me.

And then platformers because that basically ties in with the above when third person.

Platformers forever.

As for the second probably third person adventure/shooters or RPGs, think the former might just edge it out though.

Third person adventure - pretty much included this because of Zelda, I don't think I could imagine gaming without Zelda games so this genre is a must.

Racers - I'm a sucker for a good racing game and if it's good will pour hours upon hours into the game, I've sunk so many hours into GT4/5/6 (and still revisit GT4 if I have the PS2 set up) and the F1 series I couldn't not include this genre. Oh and Mario Kart.

Platformers and RPGs close behind though.

Re: You Play: - What? [POLL] Your favourite genres need YOU

I do like a good fun racer myself .. All the great and things like that Fast Racing Neo thats coming.

The trouble I have is that here with just two choices, it would mean saying goodbye to many other massive IP's that I love.



Also with the success of the poll inclusion this time .. shall I revisit the Poll scenario for the other questions too and then add the results to the OP?

Only 2 genres??

Well I immediately went for platformers and RPGs....but I love my puzzle games so much. Can we make an exception for the Ace Attorney and Professor Layton series'?
I am functioning within the established parameters.

Well I'm sure they could add RPG Elements to Ace Attorney .. not sure about Professor Layton though .. The Top Hat of Doom? and how about the Power of Thought and the Power of Correct Decisions maybe?

I voted. Chose Adventure and Racing but I was oh-so tempted to choose Platformers too - I love me a good platformer. Goodbye Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie etc, sniff.

You Play: What?

(See page 2) In 2040 members of the GAS alliance have chosen to save two genres to work with .. these genres are:

Third Person Adventure / Third Person Shooters

&

RPG's


Alas platformers missed out by 1 vote. All of those platformers will become 3D third person adventures in 2040 .. maybe not such a bad thing .. Mario will end up more like Galaxy than SMB, thats okay by me.

+ think of how great the future could be for these franchises as they would all get to continue:
