I find it interesting to see the absence of sport-related games and driving games from peoples favorites, I wonder if there is a reason for this? Do people who are serious about MAKING games as well as playing them find themselves put off by sports and racing titles? Why is this? I myself am not really into sport games either. I prefer Action/Adventure, Platformer, Stealth and RPG's. My favorite games include Metal Gear Solid, God of War, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Fallout 3, Final Fantasy and of course Mario, but who doesn't like Mario?
But seriously, why has no one mentioned sport on here is there a correlation between designers not liking them? It would be interesting to see what people say on this.
