I love RPG games (Zelda, Final Fantasy, Oblivion), but I'm also very competetive so I often play FPS games such as Call of Duty.

I've been working on a game of my own that combines FPS, RPG and real-time strategy. It's been incredibly fun to set up but I don't know until I finish how smoothly the transitions will be.

I love platformers, both 2D and 3D. (Super Mario 64 and Sands of Time are my favorites.)
Also a big fan of Zelda games. Wind Waker tops the list, but Majora's Mask has some mechanics that I adore. (Time travel and the Bomber's Notebook? Heck yes!)
I hate RPGs. Stats, items and turn-based battles... Yuck. Also not big on strategy games, but that's mostly because I suck at them. Advance Wars is cool, though.

I'd say I'm torn between loving the old skool and new adventure games and RPGs.

I play every game I can get my hands on (which is actually a lot of games.)

I figure most of us do, but what type of game is your favorite?

A fun game!

It's a toss up between RPG (say, Fallout 3) and strategy games (Total War series). I'm really no fan of micromanaging clickfests that provide a challenge by letting the computer build way more units more rapidly than the player can.

I think my preference is the opposite of Kodiak.

I prefer the micro-management click fest rts games : WC3, SC, etc. :P

One has to have a well balanced army, effective resource control and then solid execution during actual combat.

I'm a big action/adventure genre type of guy. But my all time favorite (sub)genre is probably fighting games
